  1. Such sad memories we all have of that horrible day! And now today, more sad memories are coming from the horrible fires on our Western States! Different, I know, but both so sad! Thanks for sharing you memories and pictures of 9/11. May such as that never happen in our land again! ---"Love"

  2. This is a beautiful, touching memorial to a tragic day. Wow, was it really 19 years ago?

  3. My DH was an air traffic controller and was at work when this took place. The controllers were tasked with emptying the skies of all planes in record time in case there were any other planes flown by terrorists still up. I will NEVER forget.

  4. What a beautiful reminder and tribute! Thank you!

  5. What a lovely tribute and remembrance. Thank you for sharing.

  6. What an incredible tribute.
    Thank you for sharing all your recollections and memories with us all.

  7. Thank you for this touching post - Never Forget.
