Sept. 11 Ten-Year Anniversary


The television coverage of that day has been heart-wrenching.
The waterfall at the new memorial is inspirational and beautiful (below). It's even prettier at night.


See the entire National Tribute Quilt.

Thank you for the link to view the 9/11 National Tribute quilt. It is just wonderful and I would love to be able to see it in real life one day. Dianne (Australia)

New York has always held a special place in my heart. I have been many times over the years and had been in Windows on the World in the North Tower. I got married in the December after 9/11 and we decided to go back to be supportive more than anything to a town that had always been so good to us. Like so many, I couldn't comprehend the vastness of it all. We saw many fireman funerals as we walked the streets on that visit. Everyone came to a standstill as the engines drove past. It was several visits later before I could face going to ground zero. I think the fountains are a wonderful tribute to a wonderful place that not only never sleeps but never gives up.
I saw the Tribute quilt in NY a few years ago. So much love, sorrow and memories stitched together. I will never forget it.

To było straszne i cały świat zamarł...
Pamiętamy.
Kołdra jest wspaniałym hołdem dla wspaniałych nowojorczyków.
It was terrible and the whole world grew sad ...
We remember.
Quilt is a great tribute to the great New Yorkers.
