    My initial thought is "what does not break us, makes us stronger."

    Too many people have forgotten the tragedy and horror of that day.

    Take the time to view the documentary "Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero" on Discovery Channel.
    It will make you weep but it will also give you hope. Hope of a new beginning and hope that the victim's families will finally have the closure they are seeking. It is so very difficult to imagine how you are able to mourn your lost loved one when there is not even a scrap of bone to bury.

    I remember that day vividly as if it were yesterday. I cannot believe it has been 10 years. I still think about this tragedy quite often. I have not forgotten . . .

    How can we ever forget that day? I know it changed life for all of us here in the US in ways we never imagined, and in particular in the NY tri-state area. I'll be at the Jets opening game on Sunday night against Dallas and I was just looking at the wonderful program they have put together at the stadium to commerate this important event.

    Let's never forget those who gave their lives that day and to those who continue to put themselves in harms way to keep us safe.

    Lost a cousin on 9/11. RIP Dennis

    We can nver forget all the people who lost their lives that day! It was such a tragic day for the whole country.

    Remember all of them and their families in your thoughts and prayers on this 10th Anniversary and pray that nothing like this ever happens again to our country.

    someone sent me this and it is beautiful. I hope I was able to copy the link correctly.

    I guarantee you will watch spell-bound until the last drop of paint is put in place. When you think it is over...there is more. Please watch to the very very end. It is 7 minutes long but worth it.











    Make sure your sound is turned up

    Gaby, that was a beautiful video! Thank you for sharing it. My husband is a member of FDNY, and spent a few months at ground zero. He lost 39 close friends, and spent months going to memorial services, and funerals. I'll never forget driving in the car with my children after 9-11 and seeing the many funerals processions in the streets. It always brought me to tears where I would have to pull off the road. I'm so greatful that I still have my wonderful husband. I think it is a tragedy that the FDNY was not invited to the 9-11 memorial service at ground zero.
