September 11th 2001 remembered

On September 11th 2001 the smoke from the fallen towers could be
seen from this vantage point on Bell Island, Norwalk CT

Our visit to the Freedom Tower after John and Sarah’s wedding.
It was an emotional visit for all of us. – May 05, 2011

Towers in Spring of 2001
In Spring of 2001, my wife, daughter  and friends made a trip to New York. 
This photo was taken at their breakfast at the Twin Towers.
By late summer fanatics flew planes into the towers killing  themselves and 2753 people.
The subsequent wars led to more death and suffering.
Still others still suffer from disease caused by the dust and debris.
Some of our family members were in the city on that fateful day and I hope they 
add their comments to this posting.
Never forget.

  1. I spoke with my Coffee Pond neighbor this weekend about the coming 10th anniversary. Her husband was killed in the tower. She's one of the Somerset, NJ women featured on 20/20 after the attack. She and her oldest daughter will retreat to an inn in Maryland for the weekend where there will be NO t.v. She minds all the pictures and hype, but knows we should not forget.
