911

On this 10th anniversary of 9/11 I remember it like it was yesterday and I know exactly where I was and what I was doing when this terrible event took place. Hardly a memory has been engraved so deeply and clearly. For a guy like me who talks a lot about everything everywhere, I find it hard to articulate my thoughts and memories this day. The words don’t come easy and they seem feeble under the circumstances. I’m not sure why that is exactly yet I acknowledge previous wars, lost loves, broken dreams, and disappointments have made me a quieter man.

We don heroes and rightfully so. I am deeply indebted to those that have given of themselves so we might have a chance at a life and freedom. Today I am quiet in reflection and truly grateful. It seems to me today we've been fighting terrorism forever and maybe forever we must.

No words articulates the dichotomy of war, the longing to be with a loved one, and the call of sacrifice by soldiers and citizens alike than the Jimmy Webb song Galveston, sung by Glen Campbell.

Bless you victims of 9/11 and flight 93, and all of you that belong to them. You remain in my heart, my thoughts and prayers, along with so many loved ones we've lost over the decades. Bless you...

I reflected today myself... I am from that area of the country and one thing that I never heard reported, but it was true... if the incident had occured just one hour later, there would have been tons of school age children on the top of the lookout tower viewing the city.  I remember this clearly as it was my 2nd grade class trip and I believe my summer program took us there too.  I am content that the causalties were not as high as they could have been.

Thanks Liz... I agree, so many investigations have brought forth information that it could have been far worse. Bless everyone!

Rene you can never forget what took place, I have bloged about the Flag leaving Santa Monica last September to  visit every state....hard to believe it has been a year ago, it is important to reflect on the 10th Anniversary of a day none of us will ever forget, it is important, to remember, to express our gratitude to those who demonstrated what it is to be a hero, and to pledge ourselves to live in honor of their bravery.
