Ninth Anniversary of 9/11

I remember clearly watching the TV in utter shock as the twin towers were struck and then fell.
Cross Bones
How could anyone do that? It was beyond belief and understanding and we are still striving to comprehend the enormity of it all. Since then it got us into two wars with many thousands more dead. The memory still carries a lot of pain and will for decades to come. Like the news of Pearl Harbor for my parents I will always remember that moment when the world changed.
Prays for peace in our world.


  1. I was visiting a former best girl friend in northern California, ended up getting stuck at her place a few days longer because no planes were flying. We watched the horror unfold together.....

    On September 11, 1944, the city I work in, Darmstaadt, was bombed by the British, destroying 78% of the city and killing over 10,000 people.....

  2. typo: that's Darmstadt, not Darmstaadt :-(
