I don’t know if someone has posted on this already, but I hope we can take a moment today, on this 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and remember the innocents who died, as well as the heros who gave their lives to save ours.
I still cannot talk about that day without tearing up. But that should never stop us from talking about it. For those who lost loved ones, I am so sorry for your loss. They will always be in our hearts.

I hope that everyone affected has been or will be able to find peace. We should never forget what happened 10 years ago and everything that has happened because of that day.
All my love and support to our troops still fighting for our freedom.

I’m watching a special on TLC right now about two heros, Pablo Ortiz and Frank De Martini who sacrificed their lives to help save 70+ people’s lives. So moving.
I found this link about them & the TLC special:

I lost my uncle that day. He was a great man and a hero in the ’93 bombings. Here is one of the more recent articles remembering his life.
My dad was a tank commander in the NY National Guard. He spent months down in Manhattan securing Ground Zero along with bridges and tunnels. You can read about their involvement here. He was later deployed to Iraq and fought for our freedom. We are all very grateful that my father made it home safe, but there is not a day that goes by that we don’t think about my uncle.

I never would have thought that 10 years later, I would be a military wife. It sobers me today knowing that my husband willingly puts his life on the line to defend our country and I am so proud of him.
That day affected my whole family personally, and I will never forget the images I saw on TV that day, nor the first time I went to NYC following the attacks and saw the devastation. I will remember that till the day I die.

@Aure: So sorry for your loss.
It’s hard to think about and hard to talk about, but it’s so important that we do, so we never forget and so the future generations will not forget.

@Aure: Wow. Thanks for sharing your story!
@OttawaBride2011: Yes, we have to talk about it and remember so that it someday does not just become another date on the calendar.
