I remember

Posted: Saturday, September 11, 2010 by Travis Cody in

There is only one way for me to commemorate this day.  And so, again, I remember...

...the 87 passengers and crew of American Airlines flight 11, the 60 passengers and crew of United Airlines flight 175, and the 2,016 people in both towers.

...the 64 passengers and crew of American Airlines flight 77 and the 125 people in the Pentagon.

...the 40 passengers and crew of United Airlines flight 93.

...the 343 firefighters and paramedics, 23 NYPD officers, and 37 NY Port Authority officers who ran toward danger and made the ultimate sacrifice to save lives.

...the many souls who had their lives disrupted.

I will always remember.

  1. A cloud hovers over all of us today.
    God bless those souls.
    Peace peace peace peace peace

  1. Like Pear Harbor, the Kennedy Assassination, the Martin Luther King Assassination, the Oklahoma City Bombing, America will never be the same. We will never be quite as safe, quite as trusting, or quite as free.
    God bless this great nation and give peace and comfort to those who lost loved ones in this tragic event.

    I remember the dumb shock I felt that morning. I remember my son calling me, yelling and crying about what had happened. I remember the tears... all the many tears.

    Peace to you also, Travis... thank you for visiting my little blog. I write when the thoughts spill through and when the muse nudges me... these things have to happen together... LOL

  1. A truly sad day, even more maddening the fact that Bin Laden is still not captured/punished.
