Just an Ordinary beautiful September morn..

Its been 11 years since the tragedy struck in New York...I don't even have to spell it out.most reading this will know what I'm talking about..I remember coming home home from the night shift from the US postal service..I did my usual..stripped off my clothes. went to the bathroom and got myself a cup of tea..ready to relax and watch the Today morning show with Matt Lauer and Katie Couric..I wasn't sitting for one minute before they were in panic over the first plane hitting one of the towers..we were all shocked..living it together by way of media..then minutes later I remember hearing them saying a second plane had hit..total shock and disbelief ..but almost immediately I remember someone saying "this is no accident".. and the rest as they say is history..I was glued to the tv for the rest of the day ..actually for weeks..I had to know more.. I had to see what was going on..I needed to feel like I was helping just by listening to survivors and families that lost loved ones..seeing pictures being posted,watching video taken of this horrific day in American history..in world history..doesn't really seem like 11 years..I suppose we all remember it like it was not so long ago..I can't even imagine how the families feel every day ..let alone on this anniversary every year..God Bless America..the people who lost their lives, their families and loved ones they left behind ..God Bless us all...

  9. Your photo on top is amazing. wow. I think all of us today are thinking about that horrible day. I worked at our local 911 that day. It was terrible. We had 1000's of phone calls and it was devastating to all even if we were not directly affected. We all just sat in silence stunned. I send lots of blessings and love to all that it effected. I cant even imagine being there. My heart goes out to those that lost someone that day. Our world will never be the same. Hugs to all. Kimberly www.kimisjewelryandgifts.blogspot.com
