I think it's time we take a step back today...

And remember the heroes and the innocents lost eleven years ago.

My aunt, who lost several friends and neighbors that day, sent me this:

Eleven years later, I see an airplane in a cerulean sky & feel the sting of tears.

Our fire department bugler played taps at 8:46 and 9:03.

It's a beautiful day here in CT. 

I hope that everyone enjoys today and remembers to give extra love and hugs to those around you.

And let's also remember that we are Americans all.

It is a very reflective day for me.  I am once again reminded at how short life is and how quickly ones life can change in a blink of an eye. 

Tell those that you love just how much you love them.

I remember the feeling of unity right after the tragedy and wish America would remember that unity.

It is heartbreakingly short.

It seems to be hitting me hard today.  Thankfully I will be in the office alone today so I can cry if I need to.

 It's got to be so hard, Peanut. We all have begun to think of today as day for first responders. Thinking of you and sending hug vibes your way!

Thank you.  It is a day to remember all who ran back into those buildings to rescue people.

I had to work today and honestly until now I've tried not to think about it.

I lost my dad in April after 2 of the hardest months in my life. He was a WWII veteran and had an honor guard at his burial. I did fine until they played taps, then I lost it. I know it is NOTHING compared to what others lost, but I'm having a hard time tonight.

Hugs, thoughts and prayers to everyone affected.
