The Day the Music Died...

Hard day.  Fuzzy and Pumpkin are back to school, and so is Hammer, here at home.

Here is the link to my journal entry last year:

9/11: The End of the Innocence

And here is a link to another tribute to the friend we lost, John M. Griffin: 

Terra Sigillata John Griffin

Yes, a tough day.  I was so lucky to have Hubby come home.  I will never forget that fact, or how horrible the feeling was, as he tried to get home, wondering if another plane would hit before he could leave NYC.

Kiss your loved ones, say 'I love you's'.

be well,
Dawn

Wonderful entry, yes it was the day the music died.
God bless them all.
Have you checked my last 2 entries in my Tag Journal? I did some tags for 9/11.
Hugs,
Sugar

:(  Sad day...  Sadly enough, a lot of people have already forgotten..  Thank you for adding the tributes in your journal--this day, victims of 9/11 should never be forgotten.  Hugs - Julie

Beautiful Tribute hon! As a resident New Yorker I can truly say having this hit so close to home, definitely made you aware of your own mortality. (Hugs) Indigo

On my first trip to NY, I went to the windows on the world. On my last trip, I visited the memorial.......... Never will NY be the same again.

I hadn't realized your husband was in NYC that day.  I'm glad he got home to you okay.  Very nice tribute.

Dawn,

I thought of you on Tuesday, while we were in NYC and I was watching the memorial coverage, hearing the reading of the names.  I almost emailed you because I couldn't remember John's last name and I wanted to listen for it.  I remembered "John" only.  I told my husband & son that I hoped that every year on 9/11 they had the memorial of the reading of the names - for the rest of time.  My husband said they probably would and I hoped he was right.  But then while in Baltimore we toured an old warship - it's the last survivor of 12/7/41 (D-day), the attack on Pearl Harbor, and I wondered, "when's the last time they read all those names out loud?"  Maybe they do it in Hawaii, or DC, but I don't think I've seen coverage of it ever.  How sad...  catching up on emails & noting what I received on 9/11 this past week I'm realizing how much it's becoming just another day...  bums me out.

I pray:  May we NEVER forget!
