In August of 1996, two friends and I went to New York City. It was a dream I'd had for years . Our three days there were magical.
We saw three Broadway shows, took an Uptown-Downtown-Ellis Island-Statue of Liberty Tour and even dined at Tavern on the Green...in the Crystal Room!!
It was a time I'll always cherish. . .those great experiences with great friends.
Years later, as I revisit our pictures of the trip, my heart just hurts when I see the towers in the background as we made our way to Ellis Island/Statue of Liberty. How proudly they stood.
Mary Ann and I purchased these souvenir sweatshirts. . .I think on the last day of our stay. I used to wear mine all the time, but since the attack on our country on September 11, 2001, I can't bring myself to do that anymore.
Looking at those towers just tears a hole in my heart. . .as it does for all of us. A Face Book friend of mine said it so perfectly yesterday. . .
Blessings to all of you on this 9/11 weekend and many thanks to our military and emergency responders who work so hard to keep us safe. May we always keep the memories of this terrible event in our minds so this doesn't happen again to our country .
