I would have forgotten without the reminder on 3 Ring Binder.

Thank you, LB.

Addendum:

Here are some other thought provoking remembrances.

May we remain united in our resolve and in our hope.

Gus Van Horn, MY Blue Sky

Rational Jenn, Mr Brief 9/11 Post

3 Ring Binder, The Metaphorical Second Plane, and A Proper Remembrance

Michael Yon, Eight Years After 9/11 Yon is an independent reporter and former Green Beret who frequently embeds with military operations in the middle east. Do check out his stunning photo-journalism at the above link.

Robert Tracinski, TIA Daily, 09/10/09 (Subscription required):

Barack Obama gave his big speech on health care yesterday, on September 9. But metaphorically, he gave it on September 10.

That is, he gave his speech on the basis of a world view in which September 11 never happened, in which national defense and the threat of radical Islam don’t need to be taken seriously. Thus, he called for a joint session of Congress to address his attempt to impose socialism at home, but does not feel the need to summon any sense of emergency over events in Afghanistan—or in Iran.

I will add more as I encounter them.

I love the colors of the picture you included in your post. It made me wish that I had a good and hopeful image to share. Then, on Facebook, I was reminded of the perfect image to commemorate the meaning of the towers. Check it out here.

My daughter (12 years old now) asked me if I remember where I was when I heard about the 9/11 events. I answered that I think everyone remembers.
I went on to tell her that my strongest memory is watching for the first time the planes crash into the buildings and actually not believing my eyes. If that was the only time I saw it , I would probably dismiss it as something I was dreaming about I just could not believe what I saw.
Rinat.
