A Tribute

Everyone has memories of where they were on Sept 11, 2001.  Me too.  I was getting ready for work, when my daughter, Rebekah, called and said, "Mom, turn on the TV, a plane just flew into the World Trade Center!" I turned on the TV and together, on the phone, we watched live as the second one hit.... The rest is history. Children lost parents, Parents lost children, Spouses lost spouses, Uncles and aunts lost nephews and nieces.... The list goes on and on. Being a transplanted New Yorker, we were concerned for family and friends and went on the search to see how our friends and family were affected. Yes, we were hit with some of the disaster, as extended family and friends were hit with it.

So, today, as we remember 10 years ago, and needing to go to the local home builders store, Home Depot, I was able to get some photo's. Here are some pictures of what we saw in Texas, as Texans remember and honor our fallen heroes, from that day so long ago and those since.

Flags at half-mast.

Our local fire station, they will never forget.

Along Interstate 35.

The local hospital.

The orange truck is owned by a local lawn care company. They put up a lot of the flags for the businesses on every patriotic holiday.

We won't forget, will we?
Just an aside, the light brown ground, isn't desert sand.  It is our very dry grass, as Texas really is in a drought situation.
