    Default Towers of light

    So last night while driving home, high up in the sky...I could see the two beams of light that were shinning from where the Twin Towers once stood...a beautiful pale blue. Really beautiful. Another September 11th has past....never forget those who gave their lives, and all the wonderful men and women who protect our freedom everyday.

    I still can't get over the shock of not seeing the towers in the skyline when I go past my old neighborhood. You could see them clearly everyday from the football field of the high school and some other areas of town. Surreal that my mind (or my eyes at least) hasn't accepted the reality of them not being there yet. I was in that neighborhood last night but it was raining and we couldn't see the lights.

    Although I lost no one, nor did I know anyone who had lost someone, the entire day was still on filled with a kind of sadness for me. Saturday was a very quiet, contemplative day and my thoughts were filled with the families of those who were lost.
    I wish that I had seen the two towers of light. But, I bet that I could find a picture of it on the web somewhere.

    Peace and Blessings

    My hometown lost 25 people. I don't know if I knew any of them; I was afraid to ask. I just keep praying for all who were lost.

    My son is the fire chief of our local company for the last ten years and my son-in-law is a fireman in the same company and my grandson just got put on as a driver of our new engine and the tower. The tower we bought a few years ago from New York and when this happened it affected all fireman and policeman because it is a brotherhood. When they got to New York for anything they always stop in at the fire stations. God Bless all who gave their lives that day and all who continue to serve, many as volenters. My deepest sympathies for all the famlies who lost loved ones. It was a dark day in our country but it just made us a stronger nation. God Bless America Bonita
