Statues and pictures and verse may be grand,
But they are not the Life for which they stand.

Holidays and Celebrations: September 11

Patriot Day – United States

Make Your Bed Day


9-11 has become synonymous with the terror attack on USA and the end of the twin towers.  Everyone can remember where they were when they first heard the news.  I was at Canadian Tire Gas bar filling up to visit my son on his birthday when the horrific news came on the news screens.

To me this day is a day of hope.  Only 9 days after my Mother died, my first son was born.  My nickname for him was Jay, meaning Joy.  He was the sunshine at the end of a long night.  He remains my joy.  For even though a son is only in his mother’s arms for a short time, he is in her heart forever.

9/11 Remembrance Day – September 11

There are some events that occur during your lifetime that you never forget where you were when you first heard about them.  The tragedy of 9/11 and the twin towers is one of those days and times for me.  I was pumping gas on my way to visit my son for his 18th birthday when the news came over the radio.  The images that later flooded the TV screens burned into our memories forever.  My heart goes out to my American friends and relatives on this 9/11 Remembrance Day.
