Earworm: God Bless… We Will Never Forget 9/11/01

Today is a day of remembrance.

Take the time out of your day to realize how lucky you are to still be here today.

Those men and women who fell victim on that tragic day will never be forgotten. Remember them.

Remember the proud men and women who risked and lost their lives to attempt to save the victims. They, too, were victims in their own right. But they were heroes. Remember the heroes.

Now, this is tonight’s first Earworm post of a 3 parter from me.

First off, Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.”


Never Forgotten

I was planning on writing a recollection post,  what I remembered during this day 11 years ago.  We all know what happened, we all remember.  It’s really hard to forget, something so unthinkable happening so close.

My thoughts are still with those that perished, to those that tried to help, and to those that fought.

And even though this happened 10 days after, it is still a vivid memory, a sign of hope, the first step to trying to move forward after that tragic day.

I found this site while looking for the photo up on top.  Very moving images that were captured during that time.  It might be disturbing, so please proceed at your discretion.

And lastly, the photo below, I took earlier today, from my desk. It’s my view from my office.  The Freedom Tower, being erected.   We only moved into this office a month ago, and the company I work for wasn’t around yet then, but I can only Imagine, if I had been sitting there at that spot 11 years ago.  Actually, I cannot imagine what it may be like.
