Never Forget 9-11-2001

Never Forget 9-11-2001


No doubt we all remember clearly where we were and what we were doing on 9/11 19 years ago. I certainly do, and the pain, sorrow and horror are still vivid even as we look back and remember all that we heard, read, and saw on TV and elsewhere. The videos, photos and stories we read today are as haunting as ever - I still remember watching the one World Trade Tower collapse live on TV! There are no words.


And there are the painful memories of lost loved ones - on the planes, in the towers, and the many who tried to help - that linger and will never fade.


9-11 is a vivid reminder of how precious life is, and yet how quickly lives can change.


This chalk art memorial was created on 9/11/2011 by an unknown person on the concrete walkway above the beach in Carlsbad Village where no doubt hundreds saw it that day...and remembered.
