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.
