    This image always get to me. It is the ultimate sign of hope, of being an American yet amidst rubble on that dreadful day.

  3. Very moving image. Thank you for posting it.

  4. I am heartbroken remembering this tragic life changing day. I can only hope that something can come of it-that we will honor all those lost innocent lives by making sure that we all do our part to ensure a world where tolerance and understanding become commonplace and in turn creating a world at peace.

  5. This day breaks my heart because it’s a day we lost fifteen friends and it wasn’t until three in the afternoon that I knew my husband was alive. He was supposed to be on the top floor of tower two when the plane hit but thankfully the train he was on was late getting in NYC. My husband was just walking into the building when the plane hit and in the rush he lost his phone and couldn’t call me. It was senseless and a terrible loss of life of innocent people.

      Oh I had no idea!! I’m so very sorry you lost so many friends and had to go so long without knowing about your husband. Thank goodness he was late!!

  6. How could you not shed some tears today. God bless the victims and all those they left behind.

  7. You are so right…we never will. It’s hard to imagine that it has been 10 years.

    Our hearts go out to the people of New York and all those who lost family and friends. We pray for peace and reconciliation.
    We should also not forget the people of the city of London during the Second World War: the devastation they suffered night after night for months with bombs raining from the sky during the blitz as the allied fighter pilots fought the Battle of Britain. Families having to sleep in subway stations, basements or underground dugouts in the garden which would not have survived a direct hit. Yet they had enormous courage and resilience and were able to go on day after day without complaint. Whole families were destroyed when houses suffered direct hits. As the time has passed we sometimes forget their suffering and also their courage. The pain and trauma of September 11 should enable us to empathise with and have compassion and understanding for those who suffer elsewhere in the world, from poverty, famine or poor government.
