9/11 Remembered

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the day the United States was sucker punched from behind.  A senseless act of terrorism that only served to make our country stronger.  I remember the shock, the fear, the tears that fell for so many people, the ones who died, the ones left behind.

I personally didn't lose anyone on that day.  America lost many on that day... 


On that day there were many heroes who emerged.  Among those heroes were more than 300 search and rescue dogs who worked at ground zero with their handlers to bring hope and/or closure to waiting loved ones...

The completed memorial consisting of two expansive reflecting pools in the footprints of the fallen buildings will open to family members for the first time on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.The memorial pools are nearly an acre each. Plaques line each pool, carved with the 2,983 names of those who died in the terror attacks Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial incorporated nearly 1,200 requests from victims' families to place the names near those of loved ones, co-workers and friends. It covers half of the 16-acre site, and contains 150 trees. 

God bless America, my home sweet home.
