Like so many American, I am watching the 9-11 memorials on TV today. It’s hard to believe ten years have passed since that devastating day. So much has happened over those years – wars, recession, jobs lost, age creeping up – yet in some ways it seems like yesterday since the Twin Towers fell, the Pentagon was attacked and the heroes of Flight 93 stopped their plane from crashing into our Capitol. Memories of that morning never fade. I hope they never will.
I pray for a world where days like September 11, 2001 never come again for any of us, not only for Americans but for all citizens of our beautiful Earth. Please pray with me.
Watching on TV, we observed the reverent moments of silence with all those at the Memorial Service. Although I didn’t want to see again the horrible tragedy and be reminded of all the loved ones lost on that day, I felt it was the very least my husband & I could do to honor those who died and the brave souls who saved so many.
Our son is a Colonel in the Air Force and has worked at the Pentagon off and on in past years. There in, but for the grace of God,it could have been him in that building!
I agree. It’s not pleasant watching those images again, but I felt duty bound to do so. 9-11 is the Pearl Harbor of our time. As my parents always honored the memory of those who died on Dec. 7, 1941, so shall I always remember and honor the victims of that terrible day ten years ago.
God bless and keep your son and all our brave sons and daughters in the military.
Pensioner, there are two dates in my lifetime that will always live in my mind and heart: the day JFK was shot and 9-11. With time the pain eases, but letting go is not easy.
I agree with the two dates, i also remember the shooting of M.L.King, that changed America as well for the better.
It was about 2pm over here when it happened, and i never left the tv all day.
There was a service in Belfast for it and the Northern Ireland people who died.
But i think its time not to forget but let go, because it doe’s not help the people who lost loved ones when its being brought up all the time.
I watched the film last night were the people stopped the plane hitting its target, brave people.
