The three firefighters, William Eisengrein, George Johnson and Daniel McWilliams, had discovered a US flag on the back of a yacht inside a boat slip at the World Financial Center. They took the banner and decided to raise it as a statement of loyalty and resilience.
We shall never forget
We shall keep this day,
We shall keep the events and the tears
In our minds, our memory and our hearts
and take them with us as we carry on.
I was looking across the internet to find some pictures and tributes to the Americans that lost their lives to terrorist activity on September 11, 2001, and to the Americans that answered the call of the heart to help in any way they could. So many of our brave fire fighters and police officers also lost their lives, as they bravely tried to save others from harm.
Please click on this link to a website that will help us honor those that died on that horrible day, at the hands of murderers, and remember what we may be forgetting. It is well worth the few minutes it will take to view it.

She is a New Yorker with some wonderful words and pictures for you today.
This was the saddest day I have ever experienced in my lifetime. I pray I do not see another day like this, ever again.
Please remember to pray for our troops and their families, and pray for those families that have lost a loved one. And remember to raise your American flag.
God bless you all, and God, please protect and bless America, land that I love.
