Six Years: NYC Remembered

There's not much to say here. What can you say about something like this? We are fortunate and unfortunate to have been alive to witness, even from a distance, one of the most frightening moments in the history of this country. Are there words to truly describe what many of us felt then and feel now? I still can't watch the videos or look at the pictures for more than a few moments. I didn't know anybody in NYC, but for whatever reason just seeing it even in still form brings me to tears.

So, for this day and this day only, let's all forget the war inIraq and everything else going on in this country. Let's forget who's running for election, what new laws are coming in, etc.
All we should do at this moment is remember. Remember all the men and women in the trade center and at ground zero, alive and dead, who saw it happen.Remember the fire fighters who risked their lives doing what they volunteered to do.Remember. That's the only thing we as a people can do. Most of us weren't there. We feel something that we might not be entirely able to explain. So we do what we can. We remember.
To those who lost loved ones who are forced to relive this day over and over as a historical marker for this country, my heard goes to you and your family. My heart goes to the fire fighters who still live in NYC and everywhere. Thank you so much for everything you do for us. You do what most of us are no brave enough to do. For that there is no true repayment.
