I remember where I was and what I was doing.

I remember and honor those that died.

I wore my New York shirt today
when I went about on errands.

The rains have let up a little bit.
I think I will go walk in the mist.

Always a sad day. We will always remember.

Dear Lisa,
It is and we will. I think this day changed the nation forever.
I know I was.

I remember, too. Really I hope none of us ever forget.
We didn't have as many butterflies this year for some reason. Yours are beautiful.

Q said...

Dear Sandi,
I do not think, as a nation, we could ever forget.
I have been pleased withthe number of butterflies I saw this past season. Last year I did have a few more but over all I am pleased. Next year I will add some more host plants.
Thank you.

Thank you for reminding me as I seem to forget all sense of time and dates while in Europe! hugs from florence anna xo

Dear Anna,
While on holiday it is nice to take a break from date and time.
Enjoy florence! Such a grand tour you are having.

Lynne said...

I remember and think of the rain as millions upon millions of tears.

Yes, a very sad day. Unbelievable that it could (and did) happen.
I honour those who died, and their families.
My husband and I were vacationing in Maine when it happened. My daughter called us at the hotel - she was concerned that we'd not be able to come home (the borders were closed for a few days). I was hoping we'd be stuck down here by the ocean.

We got home on time. I can't believe 7 years has gone by already.
Light and Love to everybody.

I remember too, Sherry. I was attending a back-to-school liturgy with 800 high school students in Maryland when the planes hit... My memories are so vivid - like it happened yesterday.

Will never forget.

Hello Sherry, aka Tara's mama!
Your posts are so peaceful and your pictures of the wildlife and insects are AMAZING. you have a true gift for photography.
the memory i have of 9-11 is so strange, because it took me a long while to believe what was going on. just disbelief, and no emotion at all for a while. isin't that strange?
well, thank you for stopping by my blog, sherry. i would really like to have you actually just come to my house!

I was working at the hospital (here in Europe...)I couldn't believe what I saw on the TV. I was sad and scared...We all were shocked by this horribly images.

We will also always remember.

Q said...

Dear Lynne,
I think that too.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
It does seem strange...
Love and light,

Dear Mary,
I remember the day JFK was shot too. I think certain events define a generation; Pearl Harbor for my folks, JFK for me and 9/11 for my kids.

Q said...

Dear Kelly,
Always a delight to hear from you.
Glad you enjoy the photo essays. They are fun to do.
Tara called me from work on 9-11-01and told me to turn on the tv. I saw the second plane hit the tower. I was so shocked. I understand the feeling of disbeleif. It took awhile for me to really get what happened too.
I would love to come to your house and meet your new little one! He looks to be a darling.
Maybe you will have an afternoon in October?
Let's chat soon,

Dear Belen,
Thank you for your kindness! We are all family.
