No Words To Describe The Horror

Remembering a day that is impossible to forget!

My habit is to start my computer first thing when I get up and check the news and email. On Tuesday, September 11th, 2001 the Drudge Report had a headline about a plane striking the World Trade Center in New York. No photo, just the headline. I thought it must be a joke and went about my day until I turned on the television.

This was no joke. And I watched live as the Towers fell. The horror of knowing what was happening to the lives of so many people will never leave me. People often talk of this as being the "Pearl Harbor" for our generation. In contrast, those alive at the time of Pearl Harbor only learned of the attack after it happened. We watched every minute of the September 11th attacks live.

In the years I spent living in the New York City area the World Trade Center Towers were the first welcoming sight as I returned to the city traveling up the New Jersey Turnpike. You saw those Towers and you knew you were home. They were the backdrop for so many scenes I witnessed as an area resident. It's still difficult to know that they are no longer there.

And today we also remember, and can never forget ,the brave men and women who died retaking United Flight 93 and crashing it in the field in Pennsylvania, thus saving our nation's capital a further assualt. We remember also our brave men and women in the Pentagon who also took a direct hit with many lives lost.

The Best 9/11 Tribute

Relive that day for a few moments with me. The best tribute is this flash presentation. A shorter You Tube version is here, but the longer tribute carries so much more imagery and depth. Play it here. Both use the music of Enya, "Only Time."

"Only Time"
Enya

Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows, only time?
And who can say if your love grows,
As your hearth chose, only time?

Who can say why your heart sights,
As your live flies, only time?
And who can say why your heart cries
when your love lies, only time?

Who can say when the roads meet,
That love might be ,in your heart?
and who can say when the day sleeps,
and the night keeps all your heart?
Night keeps all your heart.....

Who can say if your love groves,
As your heart chose, only time?
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time?

Who knows? Only time
Who knows? Only time
