We in Auburn,NY are having a weekend to remember this tragic day with a weekend of events and a Healing Field of Flags! I will be a part of the information booth for the Healing Field, relatives who have flags in memory of their loved ones will be able to visit the Flag placed in a certain row and numbered. There will be a ceremony service Saturday morning at 8:30am to remember The Fallen at the Towers, A band playing patriotic music on Saturday evening, With the Healing Field open 13 hrs on Sat and 8 hrs on Sunday. The flags may be taken home on Monday morning.

I think we all need to remember, and honor the fallen and their families. Great sacrifices were and continue to be made to keep us free and safe.

My Grandpa Andy got his US Citizen thru his older son serving in WW!, then in 3 sons in WW2. Thats Amkerica in the late 1940s! I get tears each time I tell that story of how a doiugh boy, a Seabee, a Combat enginneer, an Army aircraft mechanic gave their Dad his most valueable prize , besides his 13 children! That's my dads folks from the old Austrian-Hungrian Empire! Thank you for replying to my post,Spiritwater, God Blees, Grandpa Bill

Thanks Bill-I will never forget. I was born in NY and had been to the Towers many times. My heart broke when this happened and I still cry when I see anything about it. I don't think I can watch anything about it on TV at all. There is a ceremony here in Phoenix on Saturday to honor the Towers, NY and the Pentagon and flight 93 and all the people who lost their lives and the people who helped to save lives and tirelessly searched. I can't go there either-I just can't cope.
God Bless America and keep us all strong.

Thanks for the reminder. We need to forgive, but never, ever, forget. If you want to see a very touching tribute, go to U-tube and type in Budweiser 9-11 commercial. A top of the line commercial aired only once from a great company.

There is a group on FB trying to get them to air that commercial at each of the football games this Sunday. I think its fitting.
