Looking back on 9/11

Follow this link to visit 9/11 from the window of a Mr. Smith’s apartment window.  Once you have looked at all the photos, go back to the first one to compare it to the last photo. 

To this day I grow quiet and sad when I see images of 9/11 or think of that awful day.  It is not the buildings that are missing from the New York skyline that upset me.  It is the lives that were taken from loved ones and the fact that parents will never come home to their children.  The missing buildings are a representation of all the people that were lost that day. 

I have stood just in front of ground zero with Vilay, Angel and a newborn Sweet Bear.  As I stood there with my family I began to cry knowing that other families lost their loved ones on that very spot. 

Remember to tell or show your loved ones how much they mean to you each and every day.  We never know when we will lose them.

    I’ve had the bizarre experience of standing at Ground Zero, holding my daughter’s hand, crying for those that were lost that day and what our country has become since. What made it bizarre is that all around me were tourists smiling and posing in front of the memorials. I didn’t (and still don’t) understand those people.

    Neither do I.
