Still out fighting the long, long war, ain't much else to say - Face Me

I remember where I was.
I remember what I thought.
What I felt.
What I did.
I remember.
Please remember.

I was boarding a plane in Dublin on the 32 day of a business trip. I was lucky to have friends on that side of the world to be with.

Your words and the image are beautiful

Your words are brief, but the message is infinite. Well said.

I was in school with five second grade students when I was handed a paper telling me what happened. I remember getting dizzy and leaving the group for the teacher to take care of. I was so worried about you. My heart still aches for the many people left behind. They will never forget.I will never forget. Beautiful post Helen.

This year, I finally wrote about how that day affected me. I'm glad I did, I think it's something that everyone should do. You're right, we need to remember. Excellent post.

I tried to write it down. I still can't. I have been working on it for about a year now.

On the evening of Sept. 10th 2001, my wife and I watched a movie that had the towers in the background. I had a vivid dream about seeing the towers from a park I used to visit in lower Manhattan. Early in the California morning I was awakened by a cell phone. When I answered my mom’s voice said, “Turn on your TV….we are under attack.”

Just like blogbank,I also remember the day before September 11.I was at the local laundromat doing clothes.There were two other guys doing their laundry. It was raining on and off. We made a little small talk. Suddenly the rain stopped and the sun came out.It cast a brilliant light around the building! Looking out I could make out a rainbow.As I moved into the doorway the other two men did the same.What we saw was one of the most beautiful double rainbows any of us had seen! We stood silent,in awe.Maybe it would portend a beautiful world to come! Or maybe not...

Yes, we WILL ALWAYS remember.
My other blog (www.green-eyedlady.blogspot.com), the "Good Vibrations" one ran into html probs from me making a mistake. I couldn't let 9-11 go by w/out a post, so i ditched that blog template for anything just to get a post up.
I live in one of the areas directly affected but it affected us ALL. LIke others here on your blog, I can't write about all of it yet; I've been working on it in bits and pieces.
