I Heart Macro ~ Remembering


One of a dozen roses from a grocery store bouquet.

  I know everyone has a story to tell about where they were, what they thought, and how they felt when they heard the news and saw the images of September 11, 2001.  I don't think any of us will ever forget that day.  The families of the victims will certainly never forget.  So today, I will remember.  Today, I will remember to pray for the families and the survivors of that tragic day.  Today, I will hold my loved ones close and tell them I love them.  Today, I will remember that life is short and I should live as if it were my last.  
God bless you today and every day!

  14. Even here in Europe on 9/11 the world changed and never became the same anymore. I am a travelagent and suddenly had no work anymore,
    people where to afraid to travel. I was on the top of the twin towers in 1991 and find it unreal that this ever happened.

  15. Beautiful photo! I watched the History channel and listened to NPR on and off all day yesterday and it struck me how this 10-year anniversary kind of marked a turning point. For 10 years it has felt so current and raw. At 10 years, and especially with the new memorial at ground zero it does somehow feel like a chapter in our history of America. Like we can reflect on it instead of feeling like we are living in it.

  17. A beautiful rose for all those priceless lives that were lost that tragic day.
    It amazes me what hatred can do. However that day brought forth so many valiant people, so many heroes and they will be forever immortalized. The innocent souls taken that day will live forever in that beautiful Memorial built on Ground Zero, as for the villains their names will soon pass from history like dust on the wind. The spirit of hope and love can not be squashed so easily. Long shall freedom reign. God bless us all.
