Least We Forget

Let's remember not only all of the innocents who lost their lives nine years ago, but let's remember those who gave their lives in service to the country, or their state or town.

Here in Connecticut a wonderful memorial service was performed at the Capitol for Trooper First Class Kenneth Hall who died in the line of duty over the Labor Day weekend. Please check out this link for pictures and videos.

I couldn't think of anything else original to add to this post, so I would like to share with you an old post from last year. A close friend of mine whose daughter is serving proudly in the Navy, forwarded an e-mail to me that probably sums up how most people feel about today. The post is called, Meet Me In The Stairwell.

  1. Definitely a day that is 'burned' into my awareness.

  2. Mine too. I can probably give you a detailed timeline of my entire morning for that day.

  3. A sad day indeed of needless aggression, with innocent victims paying the ultimate price.

    God bless America and its true Christian values.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  5. I was at Ocean City with my children and their families. People were walking the beach unaware of what was happening on our TV set. It's in our collective memories. :( Bea

    Bea: Very sad indeed.

  7. It's still horribly vivid in my mind. I lived in NYC and every time I got back and visit, it is unnerving to see part of the skyline missing. I keep reconstructing it in my mind.

  8. The Billy Ray Cyrus show "Doc" used to show the WTC in the opening montage, but right after 9/11, it was kind of spooky to see the opening montage without the WTC in it.

    The one thing that sticks out in mind to this day is when I first heard it unfold live on the radio, I thought I was listening to an old-time radio broadcast.

Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
