Yesterday, on the eve of 9/11, we watched a movie reenactment of that September day in 2001 when the world as we knew it changed dramatically. Some of the survivors were depicted by actors and their comments were interspersed throughout the movie and some family members of those who were in one of the buildings but didn’t survive were also asked to comment. It really brought the whole terrible day back into focus for us. And the heroism and determination of the firemen and ordinary men and women was amazing. I marveled at the heroism shown by one man – he stopped to help a perfect stranger who was not able to keep walking down the stairs. He did manage to get him down to about the 35th floor when the building imploded and they both lost their lives. And the contracts manager who just kept on looking for others to help and in doing so forfeited his own life. And the fireman leader who wouldn’t leave the woman behind and so many other stories. I wonder how brave I would have been in those circumstances.
I have only just discovered Dana at A Serene Scribe and her post sums up the only thing in our minds today. Please click here to read her post – September Morning. I did try to reblog it but for whatever reason it went to a blog that I no longer use.
Our thoughts are with all those who were touched by that dark and evil day.
