In Remembrance: 9-11-2001

Just a thread to remember and honor those who lost their lives 12 years ago today.






Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Rest in Peace.

Had our two minute silence this morning at work. Such a horrific loss of life.

I remember that day, I was in the post office in Cincinnati Ohio and they had the 1st report on a TV, we had to leave to go back to GA and for several more hours we could not find any more info on the radio, it was devastating to wonder what the heck was going on....

I worked in Arlington, VA right outside the Pentagon back then. Words simply can't convey how horrific that day was.

Always so strange to be such innocently beautiful weather on such a deeply sad day.

It's a sad day for long island. We lost many police, firemen and first responders, as well as office workers. When ever I see a memorial I always take time to go through, read the names and say a prayer.

Personally, my grandfather lived less then a block away. My grandma worked right across the cove, even closer to the WTC. We had no idea what had happened to them for at least 24 hours.

Today also reminds me that you don't have to be special person to be a hero, there are heros in all of us! From the formen who opened the doorways in the bent stairwell, to the brave people who fought back on those planes, to the first responders and volunteers. They woke up everyday just like we did, just normal people, not realizing the hero that lies beneath.

RIP. I was sitting in class in elementary school when this happened...my mom and dad came and picked me up early.
Praying for the familes and friends of lost loved ones.
God bless our military, firemen,police officers, and everyone else who helped be a hero that day.
