It's a very sad thing Jackie that some day people Will forget. How many young people ever think of December 7th when Pearl Harbor happened and the 1st World War was the "war to end all wars". This country is on a downward slide and we might never recover. Take it from this 80 year old lady who has lived through a lot. I wish all of you could experience life in the 50's. What a glorious time.

The Reading of the Names ceremony is a powerful, loving, heart wrenching tribute that I feel strongly obligated to view each year. This year people involved with building the memorial are reading. What a beautiful sense of kinship they feel to the families.
God bless us all.

God bless America. Our thoughts today are of those who perished and the families and friends left behind. Our thanks goes to the brave first responders and to our military serving around the world.
Our prayers are for our country and our leaders to make wise decisions that will keep us safe and promote harmony and peace throughout the world.

My mother turned 74 on 9-11-01, and today my family will celebrate her 83rd birthday with her.

its always an emotional day with our family, to celebrate with her but remember the loss we all experienced nine years ago.

God Bless America and you Jackie for giving us a forum to remember the day.

What a shocking and sad day that was. You could almost touch the fear in the air.

This from Alan Jackson's, "Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning?).

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children or workin' on some stage in LA?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
risin' against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger
in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry?
Did you weep for the children
who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people
who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters?


A day forever etched in our memories.

How can anyone forget what they were doing on this day in 2001?

God Bless America.

Today is also the 5th anniversary of my dad's passing too. So this day will always be remembered for more than the terror attacks.

It's unimaginable to think of the devastation that goes on in the world. We think we are safe and we have been really lucky until 9/11. Never forget those who fight to protect us.
