Hi Pals,

We bow our heads today in remembrance of the horrific destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City by terrorists.    M said she will never forget that day and will always remember where she was when she heard about it.  

We live in the central part of the United States, so that incident was far removed from our state.  But it left a big impact on us even tho it happened so far away.  M wrote more about this day in her personal blog  if you wish to  go over there and read it.  

Our good friend Cathy Keisha lives in New York and she has written a wonderful, first-hand-experience post on what it was like that day.   It's very worthwhile reading if you can take a minute to do so.   Her Pop actually was working in one of the Twin Towers the day is happened.

Our small city holds a memorial service every year on 9/11.   I can't go cuz cats are not allowed!  About two years after the incident happened, the city had a replica of the twin towers built and it sits downtown in a park where everyone can see it.  Roadside America even published a nice article about it in their publication.  Click on Roadside America to read that and see more pictures.

We are thankful for all the fire and rescue people even private citizens who saved so many lives that day and risked their own by running back into the demolished buildings.  They truly are hero's!

We are also thankful to @PepiSmartDog for hosting this blog hop again today.

Thanks for writing this and remembering. Pop actually worked about 5 blocks away but that second plane just missed flying into his building. Who knows where I’d be today if it had. What a beautiful memorial.

We linked to an article just now in our blog post about how important it is to have our collective memories. That it be written down what we remember. It's hard for Mom to think that there are people alive today who have NO memory of 9-11 and what impact it had. Just like DEC 7th had on a certain generation so did 9-11 for another. But time moves on and things get forgotten this is something too important for us to ever forget but we are afraid as time moves on it will be.

Even though we live all they way on the other coast, it deeply upset my human. She had been to the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center a number of times, and when they went, it was like losing an old friend, plus all those innocent office workers and building staff along with it.

Our mom always thinks back to what was happening at what time that black day. No one will ever forget it who lived through it. We live outside Washington DC and remembering the rumors of that day and Pentagon is still fresh.
