Remembering 911

One of the things I remember about September 11, 2001 was how bright and blue the sky was that day. Maybe I'm romanticizing this, but I haven't seen a day that bright and blue in September since then. Yesterday came close, but it still didn't match up.

I've written about where I was that day. Here's the link. I also posted a photo with that post that shows some of the fear we experienced in this part of the country in the months that followed the terrorist attacks.

We also have a place here, in Bucks County, PA called The Garden of Reflection, not far from where I live. If you check out this link you'll see how many people from Bucks County are part of the memorial. We're close to New York and many around here commute to Manhattan.

Here's a link to the home page.

The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial was created to remember and honor our loved ones and all 2,973 killed on September 11, 2001. It is situated in Memorial Park amid the natural beauty of Historical Bucks County farmland in Lower Makefield Township.

The Memorial designed by Yardley architect Liuba Lashchyk AIA invites us on a walking Memorial Journey symbolizing “After Darkness…Light”. This Memorial Journey leads from sorrowful reminders of tragedy and grief towards luminous symbols of Hope, Peace and Celebration of Life.

The dedication and support of so many individuals, organizations and volunteers has made this Memorial Garden possible. We thank you. We hope the spirit and symbolism of the Garden of Reflection will endure in your hearts as it endures in ours.
