Never forget .....

Hi everyone ... 

13 years ago today, terror struck the United States ... 

Never forget - always remember - keep them in our hearts forever ....

My family and I head to Tempe, Arizona every year for the 9/11 memorial ... 

Every one of these flags represents a lost soul from that horrible day ... and sadly, my camera isn't wide enough to capture all the flags that are placed for those lost ... 



It is a beautiful memorial ... and every year we take the time to read the name cards placed at each flag -- they tell the name of the victim, their age and where they were that day ... 

so heartbreaking .... 








My best friend has a Sister-in-Law named Annie ... when 9/11/01 happened --- this man was her husband ....  since then, she has met and married my best friends brother  :)













Every child that lost their life that day has a teddy bear placed at their flag ... 












Always remember......



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  20. Such a horror but what a lovely memorial. Must have been a real labour to arrange & all so beautifully & personally written & placed. Such a mess the world is in really since then - seems to have escalated to daily horrors though not on such an epic scale of course...
