Destinations, Dreams and Dogs - International adventure with a fast-track family (& dogs) of Old World values, adopting the Russian-Italian-American good life on the go…!

In Memory of 9/11 Ten Years Later

Debris, death, destruction.  Hot ash, astonishment, ambulance.

Run, move, stay alive, do something.  Keep walking, shoes, no shoes, money, no money, no way home, mute masses.

We all remember where we were, what we were doing, what got stopped in the beginning of a perfectly fine day turned terrible.  Schedules cancelled, flights not caught, meetings not made, and yet, who were we to complain?  We were alive, and so many were not.  We were inconvenienced, they were incinerated.

Saved.  Still here.  Speak up.

    More thoughts from that time.. .When this horror occurred I wrote a 3 1/2 letter to the future generations of my family and to anyone who might read it. I put it away and have never looked at it until today. At that time I was thinking there would be a huge war and it was very possible we would not live much longer. It reflects the depth of what I and I would think everyone felt during the day and aftermath of 9/11. Some of what I said follows.

    On September 11,2001, The United States of America was struck by terrorist, which resulted in a tragedy unparalled in our great nation. Our nation is in shock, anger and sadder as a people than imaginable. Among the bodies our our innocent – Fathers, Mothers, Sons, Daughters, Husbands, Wives, Fiance’s, Friends, Co-Workers…everyones’s dearly beloved. Please future generaltions – DO NOT FORGET our lessons we are learning now. WE ARE penetrable- don’t ever forget it. Do not let the thousands of innocent people who died be forogotten. Honor them by protecting our nation, The United States of America; the nation they gave their lives for.

      That’s amazing, Sybil, that you had such foresight. Many of us were simply trying to think of how to get through the next days, weeks, or months. But even then, I believe that it affected each of us in deep and lasting ways. It was around then that we started thinking of adopting. I’ll have to write about it some time…. The aftermath of 9/11 had deep ramifications that I hope are not lost as time passes.
