What are your thoughts as we remember September 11, 2001?

It's hard to believe that it's "that" time of year again. Three years have passed and my heart has still not fully healed...and I almost hope it never will. No, I didn't lose anyone I knew personally in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the US. But I did lose the chance to meet almost 3000 souls...even more if you count the military and civilian losses we have incurred from the War on Terror.

Those were hard days n the Cabenson household. We even broke our rule of "no TV in the bedroom" in order to follow the stories. I was one of those people that laid in front of the TV for hours, tears in my eyes as I cried for people I never knew...and never would. Ten days later, I finally wrote about it in my journal. I look back on it now and thought I would share it with you.

Ten Days )

When we went to NYC in June, one of the main reasons was to pay our respects to those we lost. Here are some of my memories:

The cross made from beams at Ground Zero...which is now called World Trade Center again.

The sphere from the plaza now a memorial in Battery park

WTC #7...last to fall, first to go back up
