  The team at RE/MAX 1st Olympic Lynchburg remembers 9/11 We shall never forget

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Va much like it was in NY on that 9/11/2001 morning 8 yrs ago. People got up and started their day just like any other. The horror of that day is something that none of us will ever forget and never should. America changed forever on that day.

We have been at war ever since. It is so sad that there are people who hate and have so much evil in them.Let this day and every day be a reminder to live life to the fullest and appreciate all we have here in America. Let us NEVER forget how we all came together on that day. Love one another as God loves us.

We placed flags all around the perimeter of the building as we paid tribute to the brave men and women who died doing their jobs and for those people on those planes, the WTC and the Pentagon who got up that morning just as we do each morning to start their day and never came home again.  Always include them in your prayers but move forward and be the best person you can be and don't waste it on negative or wasteless energy.

There is a saying "Life is a gift that God gives us. What we do with our life is our gift to him"

Hi Pat,

I had not seen some of the photos in the videos before.  I can just imagine how terrified those people in the towers must have been.  Who in North America would ever dream that something like this could ever happen?

But it did.  It was hard to watch this again but I think everyone does need to keep seeing it so they don't forget.

Thank you.

Hi Jenny-I hadn't either. It did have to be so terrifying enough that lots of people jumped to their deaths. It was definitely hard to watch. It brings tears everytime. We must not forget. Thank you for the visit. :-)
