Quotes from the Sandbox ~ Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019

Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Today is one of our heavier days in life - We remember a
September morning, 2001 and the 9/11 attacks in which almost 3,000 people
were killed, over 6,000 injured, and a $10 billion loss in infrastructure and
property damage.  In the months and years that followed, additional
people died of 9/11-related cancer and respiratory diseases.  We probably
remember where we were on that morning in 2001, as we either watched
or listened to the unbelievable news occurring at the New York City World
Trade Center, the Washington, D.C. Pentagon or the story occurring on Flight
93 somewhere over Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Islamic extremist terrorists
had hijacked four of our commercial airlines.  Today we thoughtfully
remember.                                                                                                                                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                 Jane
 

"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.'  I do not agree. The wounds remain.
In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the
pain lessens.  But it is never gone."                             ~Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy

"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."      
                                                                                        ~Thomas Campbell

"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels."
                                                                                 ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"The living owe it to those who no longer can speak to tell their story for them."
                                                                                               ~Czesaw Milosz

"...We should be remembered for the things we do.  The things we do are the
most important things of all.  They are more important than what we say or
what we look like.  The things we do outlast our mortality.  The things we do
are like monuments that people build to honour heroes after they've died..."
                                                                                                   ~RJ Palacio

"Beauty exists not in what is seen and remembered, but in what is felt and
never forgotten."                                                                          ~Jonathan Jena

"In great deeds, something abides.  On great fields, something stays.
Forms change and pass;  bodies disappear;  but spirits linger to consecrate
ground for the vision-place of souls...the shadow of a mighty presence shall
wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision-pass into their souls."
                                                                      ~Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

"The brave may fall, but never yield."                                   ~Latin Proverb

"You see, the thing is, we write our own eulogies.  Someone else delivers it,
yes, but each of us authors his own in the life he lives and the memories he
leaves."                                                                                     ~Leonard Pitts Jr.

"One of the worst days in America's history saw some of the bravest acts
in Americans' history.  We'll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at
this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."
                                                                             ~President George W. Bush

"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and
there is no time for hate."
               ~Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl,   in Shanksville, Pa.

I remember being at my parents' home and seeing it transpire on the news, it was definitely a tragic event.
