As we all gave our personal respects to those that perished on 9/11 whether as a victim or as a hero...everyone around the world was affected by this tragic event. It changed the course of all our lives in so many ways it is on going. But we came together in many ways and still to this day even after 10 years the effects seems to be as if it just happened yesterday.
Watching the memorial service at ground zero, in Pennsylvania, and in Washington was sobering and truly humbling. To see the many lives that has been affected and those that have been able to move on but at the same time still living the memory of that day when so much was lost and some much destruction happened..... each person that lost someone or knew someone lost has been affected in profound way. We all have had death and loss in our lives but most of us have been able to find some sort of closure, I am praying for closure for the victims and healing of their families.
A beautiful memorial of Living water flows and a border of brass frames this waterfall with each one's name cut into it whom perished within the Trade Center. This is one out of the two buildings that collapsed on September 11th, 2001.
