In honor of September 11, 2001

Today is a very important day for all us here in this country.  No matter where you were at that moment, it has left an mark on all our lives. 

For me personally .... I was working in Post Partum at the hospital as a nurse.  I remember how clearing during my morning rounds of checking on those new mothers, do assessments, checking vitals, touching new bundles of joy, teaching breast feeding and all the other busy things that morning held being stunned to complete unbelief.  I was with a new mother, while we both watched that first plane hit the tower.  It was like watching a action packed movie .... but it was real!!!!  Shock is the only word that truely describes that shift.  Our jobs as nurses because more one of emotional support for each other, and our new mothers.  It was one of the hardest days captured forever in my memory.

For many years, I have looked for and collected photographs that to me reflects the pride of being an American.  The one used in the making of this particular freebie is dedicated to the beautiful girl.  I feel so honored to share this with all of you.

You can download it at:
This day and this wordart is dedicated to an unbelievable talented photographer.  Her eye for creating some of the most beautiful artword through a lens is unbelievable.  She takes you on a trip through the world of yesterday, captured with just a click.  I often go to her site just to read.  She makes me happy and she brings me inner peace.   She makes the everyday just so special. 
The above photograph can be found on her blog under Monday, July 4 2011 and her site is:

Project 365 is where you can find her photography, which is

To all of us .... love.
Hugs, Sue

Hi Sweetie,
I want you to know, that it was(is) not just Americans that were(are) touched by the events eleven years ago. Personally, I remember every single second of that day. It was afternoon here in Denmark, but I was home sick, so I was watching TV and suddenly the world changed.... I especially remember watching the reporter on CNN telling us that we were watching a re-run of the plane hitting the tower, and I kept screaming at the TV "NO... IT'S THE OTHER TOWER, IT'S THE OTHER TOWER!", and it actually took a minute or so before "My message got through". I couldn't get myself to leave the TV screen for about 12 hours, and the next morning I went down to the American embassy, just around the corner from where I live, and let me tell you - I was NOT the only one.
I still feel sadness on this date, although not so bad as eleven years ago. And as the slogans says "I will NEVER forget". On 9/11 we are all Americans!
