Never forget

I remember driving to work from school that morning.  I heard the news on the radio–Bob and Sherri to be precise–and couldn’t quite make sense of it.  I missed something, surely.  They spoke of the World Trade Center and a bombing, a fire, smoke in the sky.  Did I miss a court date with the first WTC bombers?  The rambling on the dial didn’t quite add up.

It still doesn’t when you think about it.

Fellow Potluckers participated in Project 2996.  See Quite Rightly’s tributes to Shuyin Yang and Yuguang Zheng and William J. Meehan, Pundette’s tribute to Sandy Bradshaw, Obi’s Sister’s salute to fellow Georgian Claude Michale Gann, and a toast to Christopher Michael Grady by Ruby Slippers.  Also see just a conservative girl’s tribute to Pentagon accountant Sharon Carver

2996 people–with families, lives, husbands, wives, children.  Some timely Dean Koontz:

“All human lives are so profoundly and intricately entwined – those dead, those living, the generations yet to come – that the fate of all is the fate of each, and the hope of humanity reses in every heart and in every pair of hands.”

Pray for their families.  Pray for our military men and women who have defended our nation in the nine years since.  And pray for military families who have borne great sacrifice as a result. 

May we never forget.

  1. People who are able to forget, will forget, unless reminded. Which is why reminders like ours are so very important.
