12 Years later and there has been a lot of progress both in the building and in our lives.

9 – 11 Flag

Last year we traveled to New York for business. Our first stop there was to the 9/11 Memorial. It was raining and cloudy that day, which actually set the mood. The mood of honor, somber, reflection and inner searching. After seeing what happened on TV on that day and to actually be there really made you think!

The Survivor Tree is and was the last living thing pulled from the fiery rubble. After all the human survivors were taken away from the scene of tragedy – it was the Survivor Tree that was the last living thing to be unearthed from the rubble. And along the side (left side as you see it in the photo) Are scars up and down the tree!

It was so nice to see the construction works to hang flags on their buildings they were working on. The flags were hanging everywhere!

Where were you?

I was a newly wed. We had just woke up to get ready for our jobs together at a local dealership. I thought it was some kind of story on the radio. Till I heard the local DJ start to cry, I knew it was real. We jumped out of bed and turned on the TV. We stood there in amazement. My mouth was wide open. I saw the first building burning. We sat on the floor and totally forgot about work. We watched the second plane hit. I can’t describe the feeling I felt. I felt my country become violated. To be hit like that on our own soil. I thought that this didn’t happen in our country. I have never been to New York City. But I stood there with extreme sorrow for those who were there. And still do.
