God rest their souls.

My name is PJ. said...

Whenever I hear "9/11" or see a photo of the towers, I get a big chill. Whenever I hear a plane flying - anytime, anyplace - I get a big chill. May God rest the souls of the victims and may He bless the survivors.


PS I just bought that Villa Tesio clock in your sidebar for my bedroom this week...through Amazon.

i was in the air that day...and emergency put down far from home...stuck in an airport with 10-15K people and they cut the tv after the towers went down...it was surreal...every once in a while someone would actually get through on the cell and we would share info...

This happened when I used to work at home. My elderly neighbor came over because she needed to watch TV with someone. We sat on my couch holding hands watching in disbelief as the world forever changed right before our eyes.

Nine years ago but still so fresh in my mind. I will never forget the horror of seeing the pictures on TV the first time. Our lives all changed that day.

So, I decided last week that I wanted a tattoo and today was the only day my friend and I could go together. Of course, it will be a patriotic one...a flag draped over a cross on my foot. Then I realized that going to a tattoo joint on 9/11 is like trying to get a table at Maria's Mexican Restaurant on Cinco de Mayo! I am going anyway and hopefully, I will have ink to show for it. I posted a prayer for today on my blog. Bloggers across America, join hands! May God bless us all.

Who can forget that awful day? It changed the world.

Mary said...

Eva, we will never forget as long as good souls such as you keep the memory alive. I hope the day treats you kindly. Blessings...Mary

I lived in lower Manhattan on 9/11/01 and so forgetting is probably never going to be an option for me, but here's to moving on!

And here's to remembering the victims of that day. Calling them heroes is wrong - they didn't choose to die for anything - they were unwillingly slaughtered. Let's hope it never happens again!

We all remember where we were that terrible day!!

The Retired One said...

My heart is very heavy remembering this awful event and I am sending out a prayer to every soul that perished there.

Eva, I remember with horror watching the gastly events of 9/11. At that time I was self employed and with my colleague we were driving down a local street in my home town. A customer saw us and flagged us down, saying "Eddie, Bob, two planes have crashes into the twin towers. Come inside and see it on my TV."
We could not believe it was real when we saw the planes deliberately crash into the towers and later when they both collapsed. I had to pinch myself to see if this was real or a dreadful nightmare - we watched, open mouthed in disbelief. Then the Penagon was hit and we heard about flight 93 and those brave men trying to stop the suicide crash into the Whitehouse, knowing they would die but waitint until the planes was in open country before they took the hijackers on.

We wondered how any human being could actually do this to innocent people. We heard those responsible had been brain washed into thinking they would actually be rewarded in Heaven for doing this. I shudder to think what they actually experienced when their real reward was when they did meet their maker.

I shall never forget.
Hugs ~ Eddie
