A Day of Remembrance

They say the candidates are laying down their political swords today. Good. Today is not the day for grandstanding.

All over the world, sad eyes are turning to the ceremonies in New York and at the Pentagon. Seven years hence, the world solemnly remembers and silent prayers for 2,751 victims are offered to the heavens. Even as we go about our business of the day, we will never forget.

* I found the above image on Graffiti.org’s collection of 9/11 murals. It features street art from NYC to China and South Africa, all expressions of the horror and devastation felt at the WTC that day. If you’re fascinated by graffiti, it’s worth checking out.

  1. Today is no day for mud slinging.

    As a New Yorker I haved such mixed emotion about 9/11. We are in a war because of it and I’m not sure if the Iraq War properly honors the memory of those who lost their lives so insensibly.

  2. I’m glad some respect is being shown for the victims. The memories are still so clear as I was 2 miles away from the Towers. It’s still so surreal and awful.

  3. Mrs.Mckinzie says:

    May we have peace today.

  4. We will NEVER forget… no matter what the aftermath of the day was. We will always remember that someone thought that Americans were so bad that they destroyed innocent lives to “prove” their strength. We will always remember that we have the ability and the heart to rally around our neighbor. I only hope that this spirit of reflection will continue and turn into the spirit of help onto those who are experiencing the hurricanes this year.
