It’s hard to believe it has been 11 years since the 9/11 attacks. Do you remember where you were that morning? I was in college and can remember being at the veterinarian’s office working. I will never forget it. I remember immediately calling my parents. Not that I could do anything but listen to the radio. Even though I was states away from the cruel attacks, I remember my stomach sinking. Was this really happening? My son is in the above picture at my parent’s house. He is saying the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag. Yes, he has learned about the attacks. He loves to learn about history. It’s hard for him to understand what happened that day before he was even born. It’s hard for me to understand.
My Mom and Aunts recently visited my sister who lives in Manhattan. They visited the 9/11 Memorial Museum of the World Trade Center in New York City. This is a video of one of the two Memorial Fountains. She said the fountains were massive. The waterfalls sit within the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood. It also includes the name of each life lost in the 2001 and 1993 attacks. It is a great way we can show our respects to the lives lost. Learn more about the 9/11 Memorial. Please share your stories of 9/11. How many of you have visited the memorial site?
Thank you to all the brave men and women who have fought or are fighting to protect our country. And we will never forget all the courageous people who lost their life on that day.
