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.

Jeff Dowler, CRS  I will never forget what a frighting day it was 

Posted by Hannah Williams, Expertise NE Philadelphia & Bucks 215-953-8818 (Re/Max Eastern inc.) 20 days ago

Hello Jeff, Such a sad day in our history, I lost a friend that was in the tour and think of him all the time.

Hi, Jeff.

That was a day that would be impossible for me to forget.

Hi Jeff... that's it in a nutshell when it comes to catastrophic events. Another reason to never forget.

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

Good afternoon Jeff Dowler, CRS ,

What a day in history 19 years ago! I'll never forget I was driving down the road and Gene called and asked me if I'd heard. I turned around and came home. Still can't believe the horrific devastation that occurred that day.

Hannah Williams  Indeed it was

So sorry to hear Will Hamm  I know a number of people who lost friends and family on the planes and in the Twin Towers. Horrible!

Jeff like I stated on another blog I still don't understand the level of hate it takes to do something of this nature.

So very true Patricia Kennedy . A very scary and sorrowful time.

Hi Nina Hollander 

It seems there are more catastrophes than ever, large and small, that serve as reminders about life!!

Morning Jeff.

I know it's difficult to believe but I do remember that day.  Now, look at where we are today, pity

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) 19 days ago

I doubt that anyone that witnessed or was aware of what happened can ever forget about it.
