9/11 2006: How We Remembered

Google did the pcitures


CBS showed a tons of beautiful long stemed roses laying in the memorail ponds at the 9/11 sight as relatives read out the namesof the victims of 9/11 in New York. The relatives or friend of the victim was standing on a new long ramp; very poignant!

Later a reporter interviewed the wife of the pilot of the plane that went down with her two daughters! Theyare wonderful! The girls and their mother were so proud of their father!Awesome!

I heard also from Bill that someone had thirty six flags put up in a field as a commemoration for the fallen policement he had known; each policeman had a flag!

They also featured two women from a non profit that they had created called:onegooddeed.com that seesk to help the victims and their families!

This morning CBS had some English police persons featured in uniform in theri early show. These men and women were touting the good that their non profit was doing to help victims! They said that they were happy that Americans were visitng England and that Amercians are alwasy welcome there.

I guess that the best news for me is that some people have helped and that many people have survived and some of them have thrived!

Please leave comments of good cheer!

Hey Nat- I love the way people who love life remember those who are gone.  Sweet stories, and I've heard other ones too.  I liked the flag idea frome the Police officers.  I think that's what police do- protect this country by protecting us.  I think it's a cool idea.  Thanks- Carolyn

There was a flag for every person killed on 09/11 at the WTC, Pentagon, and in the PA field. There were almost 3000 and each had a name of a person and a little about who they were. It was spectacular. Thanks for your thoughts. Regards, Bill.

I'm so glad that people all around the world have taken active steps to remember the 9/11 victims. Its so difficult to know how best to do this, but its different for ever person and every family. but i'm glad there were little ways that individuals could unite and remember.

I watched it all on tv over here. The names being read out, the roses in the pond.  It was heartbreaking.

The next time I get into a plane, it'll be a B-52 heading to Iran. Otherwise, there's nothing that great in the world that I can't drive to. My vacations will occur within a Chicago/Florida/Quebec triangle that I'm perfectly at ease with. I might take a cruise ship to France, but even that worries me.
