Wednesday, September 11, 2013


This day will forever be a somber one for me. The awful events that transpired on September 11, 2011, I think, will forever be ingrained upon the hearts and minds of people, be them United States citizens or from abroad. It is a day to remember what happened, a day to be stilland without fear.

I remember capturing a photo of the World Trade Towers from a boat heading to the Statue of Liberty. Who would have thought that just over a year later, those towers along with other buildings would be targets of terrorism? Who would have thought that thousands of people would perish? Who would have imagined that such atrocities would happen on such a large scale?

Every year, I can't help but remember those images I viewed live on television. It breaks my heart.

Since I post on Wednesdays, I didn't feel right posting about anything else other than paying respect. I want to pay respect to those that died and those that were left with voids of lost loved ones in their hearts.

I honor those who fight for freedoms, and hope that people who strive for civil unrest will come to their senses. I hope for peace and softening of hearts. I hope for peace in hearts that are wounded for whatever reason.

On this day, I offer my words to keep the spirit of lives lost alive.

Cheers to the valiant and hugs to anyone who needs love on this day.

  1. After Pearl Harbor, we never thought it would happen again on American soil, but it did. A day we should never forget.

  2. American's should never forget. God Bless America!

  3. It's a day I will never forget either. I'm afraid some are already forgetting.

    1. Isn't that the truth, sadly enough. :(

  4. The lives lost should never be forgotten

  5. We'll always remember what we were doing when it happened.
