    It's 9/11

    A hard day of remembrance for me and my neighbors . We mourn the victims and remember the bravery of first responders. We are asked to do an act of charity, which most of us do through our quilting. Please, also, take care of yourself. Give something of quality to yourself.

    A hard day to remember indeed. I am sure everyone remembers exactly where they were when this tragedy was perpetrated on innocent people. I am sure Dotty your memories are even more vivid than mine since you were closer. God bless you.

    A sad day, indeed. Still remember seeing and smelling the smoke that day. A friend of ours received a call from a friend of theirs in Germany that day. The friend offered condolences and said 'what happened in your country today has changed the world'. Unfortunately, very true.

    I just hope that we continue to remember all the current first responders, firemen/women, policemen/women etc. who put themselves in harm's way to protect and save us from diasters along with those we lost on 911. Be kind to them when you see them out and about and thank them personally everytime you are able. It's 14 years after the event and I still cannot believe it happened and that NYC was able to clean up all that building material at all let alone in what seems like a quick amount of time. My heart goes out to all who lost a loved one on that day or in the months/years that followed.

    Yes, what a sad day for the whole country. I was fortunate to be blessed with making a memory quilt for a Lady in Brooklyn that lost her DH that day. I made it out of her DH's clothing she sent me. We have stayed friends ever since then. Sure wish I could make the trip to meet her in person.

    KLO, you speak your thoughts( and the thoughts of many of us) very well. May we all always remember that day no matter how painful, that maybe we might be able to never need to endure another day like it. May we prayer for all our first responders, our military, and for our government officers for guidance and protection. May God bless us all. Or better yet, may we all bless God.

    I will forever remember that day... It was a free afternoon from college and my mum rang me from work to say that there had been some sort of 'disaster' and could I put on sky news and find out what had happened. I was watching the news when the second tower was struck, and all afternoon as spent relaying information to people. Even though we are half the world away, everyone was involved/needed to know what was happening. It will always stay with me.

    I was in NY the Feburary as the attack happened in September, and I was just 15 years old (just before my 16th Birthday). We returned this year for my 30th Birthday as I have always wanted to go back. The site memorials were just breathtaking, and the museum a fitting tribute to all the brave folks that perished that day (and after).

    Yes, this generation will always remember 9/11 just like our parents always remembered the bombing of Pearl harbor, a "day of infamy" as FDR said.
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort
