Sept. 11, 2001- Etched in Memory

remembering-9-11-9-11-1

At exactly 8:46 am EST, it will be 17 years since the tragic events of 9/11. I ask that today be a Day of Reflection not just of September 11, 2011 and the many lives lost; but a reflection of how our World as knew it then, has changed into a World of so many lives lost since then fighting for our Freedom.

Let us never forget the over 3,000 lives lost that day.  Eventually since that time we have lost more lives, those who so dedicatedly rushed to the Trade Center as the more than 1,000 First Responder’s, many of whom have since lost their own lives.

Last Fall, I visited the World Trade Center as it today. With the “Freedom Tower”, what made the most impression on me was the “Reflection Pools” surrounded by the names of each person lost that day, as well as the over 700 bones they have yet to identify.

For more Reflections on this “Day of Remembrance” as I listen to the tolling bells for each person lost.  Attached is a link to my previous article (written last year on Sept 11, 2016).
