Taking the Time to Remember

********************
Six years ago today one of the most horrific acts of terrorism in the history of mankind occurred less than 2-1/2 hours away from where I live. There is still no way to adequately describe the shock, dismay, and overwhelming sadness that I, like millions around the world, felt that day. I still don't understand that kind of hatred and I probably never will. To be honest, I don't ever want to as I am sure I would have lost a lot of my own humanity if I ever could understand or, heaven forbid, feel such hatred for my fellow human beings.

In honor of those who lost and gave their lives in the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City, Washington DC, and a small town in Pennsylvania, I would like to refer you back to three posts that I wrote last year; two from August and one from September.

I wish I was able to write something more profound this year but it still dismays me to no end that there ever was a 9/11 for anyone anywhere to write about to begin with. I hope you'll take the time to read and comment on these posts as your opinions and thoughts all matter to me.

May God bless and protect you - wherever you may be - and may no one anywhere in the world ever have to live through this sort of unspeakable horror and tragedy again.

  2. In Southern CT like in NY and NJ, it seems like most people are 2 or 3 degrees separated from someone affected by the murderous event. One of my sister's brothers-in-law was killed. I never met the gentleman, but there are lots of stories like this in these parts. It can never be forgotten...

  8. You did a great job with this tribute, Linda.
    Now - can I steal - or borrow - whatever you care to call it - the badge you used with the candle and ribbon for 9-11 to put on my sidebar?
