…As it was on This Day 11 years ago. Simply gorgeous day. I went out to put up our flag this morning. I pull out a small step ladder so I could reach the clamp that holds our Flag on the front brick of our house. after I inserted the flag pole into the clamp I turned around to look over my shoulder before coming down the ladder and I see the flag, and the blue cloudless sky, and the vapor trail of a passenger jet heading south in the sky.
It was a perfect picture statement of what today is about. it made me tear up. I wish I could have grabbed a camera fast enough. the photo below was taken about 20 minuets after the event. The cloud string was not anywhere is site.
A couple nights ago one of the news channels was replaying their special, a timeline of events, with interviews of people involved in that day. My first reaction was ” I’ve seen this one, let me see what else is on” but before I changed channels, i ended up watching the whole program. – TWICE. It made me sob at times. I will probably always sob every time I see programs about this horrible, horrible day. September 11th 2001.
No silly comments today from me.
