Amen Cedar.. I've enjoyed watching TV today--and re-living 9/11--with the families who lost loved ones. Still brings tears to my eyes.

God Bless those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and God Bless the USA.
Hugs,
Betsy

reagan said they watched footage of 9/11 is school today. I have to remind myself that she was only 2 when it happened. It is already like learning about history for her.

Truly a day that still brings so much sadness and tears- we must never forget.

It's a sad day to be sure, but this year I tried to not dwell on it as I have in previous years.

That said, it was a moment in time that will forever change who we are as Americans. God bless all those families who were so deeply affected by the horrible acts of others.

My heart aches for those lost and those who still live with the fallout of serious health and emotional issues. They rushed in without regard to their own safety. That's what heroes do.

I remember, too.

((hugs)) It is a day to mourn and to remember. That morning there was a glorious sunrise--a splash of hope. It is hard to believe it happened eight years ago.

God bless those who lost family and friends to that awful terrorist act. God bless America.

I remember when we visited Ground Zero nine months afterward. On that grim and cloudy day my daughters and I sang "Amazing Grace" in harmony...As we sang the last verse..."When we've been there 10 thousand years, bright shining as the sun," A sun beam burst from the clouds, shining down onto ground zero, then the brightness spread up to cover the flag, and gently warmed where we stood. It was a little miracle I'll never forget.

The next day the last of the 9/11 victims were discovered and carried away.

As long as I live I'll never forget that day.

Dear Cedar--you are in my prayers today (Sept. 12). ((hugs)) May God strengthen you, dear one.

God Bless all those affected by 9-11. God Bless all those lost on 9-11. God Bless the world and heal her crying soul. From pain and loss grief must come before the healing starts, then as a phoenix rises from the ashes, a New Hope, a New Life can emerge triumphantly praying for Peace on Earth. Love and Light, Nina P.

Cedar a lovely post and a reminder where no reminder is needed. May we never forget what brought us to this event and the pain and grief it spread around the world.
CBC Canada had a special called "102 Minutes that Changed the World" on over the weekend...touching new video, no dialogue just a grassroots silent reminder of what we are capable of doing to one another.
Blessings and prayers to you and yours

Nice post, well said. I think in the back of my head, that day was part of what eventually chased me out of the city. It was pretty awful. And pretty wonderful to see a whole city pull together.

What a terrible day when so many people lost their lives. Just no words to describe it for me. I'll never, ever forget.
