Memory fades, detail and intensity leaching like pigment from fabric that has lingered in the sun too long.  But G., C., R., and S., sixty years from now your lives will still have been too short.

Honey, had chance not favored us, you wouldn't be here today -- and neither would our daughter.

I still find it hard to fathom the unfathomable.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

I'm so sorry that you were personally affected by this tragedy. My father worked in the WTC and was there that morning, but he and his colleagues were the fortunate ones. Will be keeping you in my thoughts. ♥

*hugs* Thank you. I'm very happy your father and his colleagues made it out OK. Several of my husband's colleagues and good friends passed away then. They had Blackberry contact after the towers were hit, and it was just bad and scary and not something you would wish on your worst enemy. My husband was supposed to be there, too. It's just by chance that it was decided that morning that he would be going later, and swapping places with one of the other people.

I saw the smoke rising up in the sky and heard the sirens wailing as I walked to work. You could smell the wreckage for months after...It was a very, very hard time to be a New Yorker, and I know it had an indelible effect on so many of us. Different eras, different tragedies.

Again, I'm happy your father was unhurt.

Thank you, honey. *hugs you back*

*hugs you back* Thank you, my dear.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm thankful that your husband was safe. And I am still grief-stricken.

Thank you. So many people lost something or someone that day... :( *hugs*


This tragedy lives on in us all. So many lives cut short. Such loss. Such images. It is something I doubt anybody in our generation will forget.

So sad to hear you and your friends and family were affected so personally sweetie.

My family were lucky - my cousin works in downtown Manhattan but was fine. Of course some of her friends were not so lucky.

I hope you can remember your loved ones today and think of happy memories to wash away the tears. *hugs*


I know what you mean. My b-i-l was on the very last PATH train that day. He was very lucky.

It's days like these where we all truly stop to think of what we are thankful for and how lucky we are to just be alive. My thoughts go out to you and your family, and all who were affected by this day in history. ♥
