I Still Cry...We Should All Always Remember

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the

World Trade Center.

It is the fifth in a
new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the
World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, 'those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,' recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. 'It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.'

   It is a spiritual, mindful moment for me as well....tears never stop falling when I remember....as we all should, those who gave their lives...it is an undescribable reverance...and a lasting memory....May the friends, families and every American take pause as this ship sets sail to defend us all and savor the freedoms we have and enjoy every day as Americans.
