From Christine, "I wrote this in January 2002 after watching my local firehouse turn into a shrine following 9/11."









"We Must Never Forget"






Our thoughts, prayers and hearts are with the families and friends who were victims of the devastation that was 9/11.    Be well, be safe, remember to LOVE...Caren & Cody

  6. no tribute is big enough to those brave fire-fighters everywhere who, without thought for themselves save us. Remember everyone: Fire-fighters are the people who run into a burning burning when we run out. "Greater love hath no man /woman...."

  12. I know everyone in Britain are remembering. It's amazing how people have got their lives back on some kind of track, but it's called survival. Something like this changes everything forever. Hugs to the USA. xx

  15. Today is a very emotional day for many. I've been watching the specials on TV, and the images of the planes hitting the towers and then the collapses, is still hard to watch all these years later. Thanks for posting this.

    On an unrelated note, you missed my Gotcha Day adoption story -- but I wanted to thank you anyway, because I entered it into the Bissell contest after seeing yours. I actually had posted it before I even knew there was a contest but it was just in the knick of time.

  16. @Yvonne thank you!

    @Julia I saw it...I don't always comment every time that I read but I definitely saw it. I also no longer read the blogs every day (most days I do but I skip one or two days a week because it is becoming way too much). I definitely saw it. Good luck!

    @Jan thanks, she is an excellent folk singer...

    @Oskar thanks

  17. We must never forget. While it is a somber day, I like to reflect on the sacredness of every day and find a moment of light in the darkness. Thanks for visiting us.

  18. What a beautiful song that sums it up so well, I have cryed off and on all day with all the tributes, it seems like so little time has passed, its hard to believe its been 10 years. My husband asked when I was going to stop crying at all the tributes, I told him maybe in another 10 years. Thank you for posting such a lovely tribute.

  19. That was really beautiful. The Human never heard that before. It's very touching.

  20. The tributes have been very emotionally wrenching, but I think that we needed that.

  24. @Cat Wisdom 101, I couldn't agree more! I visit you all the time! I just don't always comment :)

    @Cat-from-Sydney ((((hugs)))) back at you

    @Kim thank you. I watched a special last night on CBS all about the firemen of 911, it was amazing.

    @catfromhell ((((hugs))))

    @Not just Another Mother Blogger I agree, to those who say it is just sensationalism, I couldn't disagree more. Acknowledging/remembering is a form of showing we will not be deterred, we are strong, and that, to me is necessary.

    @Spitty, thank you. Christine is an amazing folk singer. She sang to my husband and I when we were engaged :)

    @Coupon Queen, thank you. I am the same, but it is necessary, at least to me. ((((hugs))))
