9/11. Ten years on.

For the husband who told his wife I love you one last time before his plane went down in a field.

For the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say I will love you forever.

For the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye the morning they died.

For the policemen who rushed in with the firemen to help get others out only to die themselves.

For all those who lost their lives and  for those they left behind.

Today.... tomorrow.... ten years from now.... we will still remember.


  1. Yes..... the most terrible atrocity. How could we ever forget them. Life will never be the same for some of the bereaved.

  2. well for everything I have read and watched about 911 this week, this post is the only thing that made me cry. xxx

  3. Thankyou for your comments. Kelloggsville..I picked up the words from a post on Facebook, so they are not totally mine..I changed/added a bit to them. But they made me cry too.

  4. Thank you for sharing this on your blog.

  5. You're welcome Mr H. I had to say something xx

  6. A New Yorker friend of mine wrote on her Facebook that she didn't want to think about or hear about these events anymore and she especially didn't want to hear about other people;s thoughts on the subject, where they were and what they were doing, especially, she added, if they were NOT witnesses to the events.

    I thought a lot about what she had written and finally decided that she was too close to the events to see them objectively. The events that happened in New York ten years ago were not local at all. All of us were affected in one way or another. It's not even an American event. Like the Kennedy assassination, it is a tragedy that belongs to the whole world.

  7. My dear Nomad. There were many other nationalities there too. But apart from that, it was a day that really changed the world...for all of us...even if we didn't witness the attack firsthand. I think people feel they have to mark these anniversaries. We have to remember the courage of so many and the loss of so many. We should never forget.


I love getting comments, but don't feel obliged...I'm just happy you're reading my blog.
