The Day the World Cried...


drawing by Pamela Jo

  


    I would like to take a moment out today to remember an event that affected the world. On this day September 11th, 2001 the world lost more of its innocents. While this tragedy occurred on United States soil it happened to the world. The twin towers were called the WORLD Trade center, because they held people of all nationalities, all faiths, and all ages. This tragedy happened to people not governments.
    I would like to take this opportunity to remember all those who lost their lives and their loved ones. I would also like to take time to remember the stories of the heroes and the courage of the people in the aftermath. Not just here but around the world.

I have listed just a few of the tributes that are on the web today. Take time to visit and remember.  Just click on the names to be taken to these posts.  Each one in there own way has payed a wonderful tribute to this day. 

The Block --Kitty tells of being on an airplane overseas and what occurred to her.  This more than anything brings home the world's shock.


    I know there are others out there, but these are the ones from blogs I follow. These are the ones I have read myself today. I would like to end this with a Budweiser tribute to 9/11 from youtube that a my friend Debbie pointed out. This was aired only once so that the company would not make any money and as a tribute only.  It says it all with out a word.

Had not seen that Budweiser tribute. Probably the first and only time I've teared up at a beer commercial. Loved it.

It's an odd feeling every time this day arrives. Easy to forget the emotion every other day of the year...then the footage and stories and the whole day come rushing back.

I visit this site every year. An amazing collection of photographs. http://hereisnewyork.org/

Thank you Brooke. I will check it out.

I waited until the end of the day to do my tribute. Too many voices drown out the lyrics, and the mourned dead deserve a fitting, solumn tribute done with muted respect and grief.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. My life as a blood courier leaves me so little free time to visit my friends as I would.

Your tribute was excellent, Roland

I've been reading tributes today as well.It's so interesting to see where everyone was when the tragedy occurred....

The Words Crafter said...

I'd never seen that tribute before, it made me cry! Thanks for all the links, including mine. I really liked your tribute and especially your perspective. It was the whole world in the towers...

I remember seeing the Budweiser Tribute, but seeing it again gave me the same chills. Thank you for bringing all of the links to my attention.

Kittie Howard said...

Thank you for linking the Budweiser commercial. I'd seen it before and, like before, the tears fell. My husband came into the room and we looked at it together with the same teary sentiments.

I'm happy you found me...even happier your post involves the whole world, for 9/11 affected everyone. A reader left a comment on my blog that he watched events unfold LIVE on t.v. This blew my mind. Don't people realize CNN, Fox, and MSNBC broadcast worldwide? Live! What was seen in the States was seen all over the world. And the world cried with us. I'm beginning to think many Americans realize that.

Thank you for linking my post and others, a very heartfelt gesture, that is appreciated.

Thank you Pamela Jo for this post and the wonderful links as well. The Block was particularly insightful and beautifully written. It is interesting to hear the various stories of where people were and what they were doing when this happened and we all knew that everything had changed. Bless you...from Australia.

Hi Roland, I read your tribute and agreed with you. I started not to post. But that was not an option. This was for the individuals all over the world that were affected.
Hi Sandra, It has been very enlightening hasn't it.
Hi Word Crafter, Yours was one of the blogs that made me have to write this tribute, I needed to add my voice to yours.
Hi Laura, That commercial is very well done and emotional isn't it.
Hi Kittie, Thank you for stopping by. Your tribute brought home to me that it was a World tragedy. The commercial affected Jack and myself like it did you and your husband.
Hi Lori, I just read your tribute as well. I am so glad you were able to talk to your family back here in the states that day. I can only imagine how that must have felt being so far away from them. Bless you as well...from Texas.

Hi Blogger Girl, I just stopped by your blog. Thank you very much for the award.
Hi karuski, I know what you mean that is the way I feel every time I see the pictures and remember.
By the way, I love the pin cushions you made. They are so cute.
