That makes me think about the WW11 soldiers who hardly would say a word about the horrors that befelled them.........I imagine Coart that you are like one of those soldiers.......its just too bad to even speak of.
Just too difficult.........
We all did a lot of crying that day.......it was hard to explain the whys...but, sometimes it helped to do that....... but not easy at all.

I've been there twice now. It's only ~ 30 min from home. I am still moved.

God bless all that perished, all that helped, and all that survived to tell the stories that are so needed to be told.
It is all so sad, and how easily it comes to the surface when we let it all back in. For many of us, we let it in when we select to, but for thousands of family members who live with it daily, how hard it must be every single day. God bless those that are living with just memories.

Littlebunnie, that is great your seven year old could see that. I was two years out of the World Trade Center area when this happened. I spend time in the WTC at various points of my career. I can remember the first time the PATH train pulled up to the WTC stop. You could see the sheer fear on everyone's faces and the erieness that the concrete and the destruction left behind. The sense of emptiness, sadness, anger and shock filled the subway car in a quiet voice.

I have sat with several families and listened to stories, some triumphant and others really sad. We keep praying and keep giving the survivor's and the families the support the need and most importantly: keeping everyone's memory alive.

It was also nice to see today: Cove Haven's sign: "We remember"....
