A day we will never forget: 9/11

Hard to believe it has been 18 years since we received a call from one of our friends. He urged us to turn the TV on.  It seems like yesterday to me…

As our nation holds somber remembrance ceremonies all over in most communities, I cannot help but be amazed at the resilience of the American Spirit. Since that dreadful morning when 2,977 people lost their lives in New York City, Washington DC and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Our country has rebuilt these tragic sites. The locations have become Symbols of The American Spirit.  In Manhattan the new buildings are representing patriotism and the American can-do spirit, BTW they are fully occupied again.

“…this world is so full of care and sorrow that it is a gracious debt we owe to one another to discover the bright crystals of delight hidden in  somber circumstance…” Helen Keller

 

 

When I hear the steady flight of Airplanes landing at LAX as in Los Angeles International Airport, I feel joy! On the other hand when there are quiet moments an eerie feeling creeps up to my thoughts and I am hoping that it is just a lull in the flight patterns, rather than the eerie silence that 9/11/2001 had over the Westchester, CA community and other nationwide Airport Communities.

Good morning, Endre... the events of that day are just as vivid in my mind's eye today as they were 18 years ago. I don't think those memories will ever fade for me.

Such a sad day and the months to follow as well, Endre. I will also never forget and like you, remember the thoughts of concern when we didn't hear planes overhead. 

As for flying the flag - indeed we do and it really is sad to see that so many don't fly them - on 9/11 or other important US days that they should.

Debe Maxwell, CRS  I have a hard time comprehending, living next to LAX and having teachers as neighbors and they can not pull the flag out.... they need to spend time in China & Russia for a few years to get their perspectives back....Endre

Sad day. I do not usually leave my house on this day. It is too sad for me. Fallen angels, my flying brothers and sisters. 

Thank you for your kind post.

We were actually flying on planes that day!  But it felt a lot safer to be in Canada.

Agreed, Endre! There is just so much that so many Americans are confused about these days - and respect for our country is one of them.

A little late to your post Endre. As a proud American, your words hit in the heart, I still get weepy when thinking of all those lives lost and the sheer heinousness of the act. Then I focus on everything right about our great country and how most of us will fight to prevent another such occurance.
