And it will always be a terrifying day.

Barbara said...

A day of forgetting the things that don't really matter. I wish it didn't take something like this to wake us up and draw us together!

Daryl said...

perfect .. hugs .. it eerily like that morning 11 years ago .. same almost cloudless skies, same cool temps ..

Sylvia K said...

I do so agree with Barbara! We all need to focus on the things that do matter and not just for this one day. Hopefully,then we won't need to be awakened by this kind of horror ever again.

Yes. Thank you.

My friend has a ten-year-old kid that doesn't know what 9/11 is. Education is lacking in this country. People will forget. That's just the truth of it. They'll belong with the crowd that denies the Holocaust ever happened in another fifty years. Oh and that evolution isn't real.

This generation will never forget. And I hope future generations won't either. Nice image of the old firetruck.

Pat Tillett said...

A great tribute to the day the world changed for us.

Rohrerbot said...

Don't think any of us will ever forget. What a terrible day in our nations history...changed the course of everything including being critical of everyone and everything going on around us. Those innocent days are over and I'm not sure it will ever be the same again as it was before.

Pat said...

Wonderful old fire truck.
A beautiful tribute.

Beautiful! When we visited the site in April, I was so amazed at the relatively small "footprint" of such devasation, horror, and loss.

Michael Manning said...

May we remember the victims and their families on this solemn day with compassion...

Gillian Olson said...

No can't forget, I like this tribute.

Kathy said...

Never!

Have a great day, Eileen!

Linda R said...

Such a sad day. I will never forget when I heard the news. I was driving my daughter to school and I heard it on the radio. I almost pulled over. I really couldn't believe what I was hearing. A day I will never forget.

Hugs~

Kerri said...

Beautiful tribute!

Bob Bushell said...

Nice fire engine, and great tribute.

Ivanhoe said...

Never! What a sad sad day...
Hugs from Ohio,

Dianne said...

the fire truck is perfect
it made me teary eyed when a lot of the memorials have not
I guess because it is so simple and dear

Daryl is right, Tuesday was so eerily like that other Tuesday morning and I still find myself reliving terrible moments

peace

Mark said...

You are absolutely correct. Never forget.

Thanks - I didn't post anything thing this year but did last year. As I told Barbara (above commenter) on her blog post - I didn't forget and never will forget. The memory is in my mind and heart forever.
