Magnificent Monday: 9/11/2011

 Magnificent Monday: Posts with a theme: This weeks a tribute to 9/11/2001. I am posting mine here at http://holesinmysoles.blogspot.com.
Join us for this journey by posting your own Magnificent Monday; reading and commenting.























The overwhelming sorrow that hit our nation on this day is never going to be forgotten, like Pearl Harbor it will forever be etched in our memories. What I see everyday is the flag of our country as in our National Anthem, "still waving", A proud country, a healing country! For every flag I did get a shot of there were at least 5 I didn't. In my community at least, they are on our homes and many many of our businesses, on cars, on bicycles, motorcycles, boats, everywhere. We are strong in that we believe. 

There are many heroes of that day, many victims, we each have had to grieve in our own time and way. I cannot fathom the pain of the families of the initial attacks; I can feel the pain of a wounded country. We will rise from the ashes of this attack and recover our footing, it takes time and work, we are not there yet, but we will be.

  1. I think every country has its share of glory and tragedy and I salute to all the heroes who give up their lives for their country, the innocent victims that just happen to be at the wrong place.

  7. Jan, being in NY on that day and the days that followed were like walking in quick sand. All of us along with people around the world who value life were stunned, shocked and saddened. What helped us to heal was the support of friends, family and strangers and symbols like the flag. Just looking at it reminded us of who we are at our best. United States. Uniting during this tragedy helped to pull us out of that quick sand and walk again. Thanks for this tribute to the fallen and let it serve as a reminder to the survivors that we are all united no matter where live. Lovely post. Thank you.

  10. WOW - that boy did an amazing job on the Star Spangled Banner! Most of the adults I've heard don't sing it with that level of skill and passion. Great tribute for 9/11, Jan. Thank you.

Your photos show how the american people were drawn together by this horrific event, and will no doubts live in everyones memory for ever
