September 11, 2015

9/11 Remembrance Day
Each generation seems to have their moment. My Mama remembers the day JFK died vividly. I remember September 11, 2001 as if it happened yesterday.
In May 2014 the 9/11 Museum opened at the site of the World Trade Center 2. Throughout the years I have watched the clean up of the area happen, the rebuilding begin, and finally in August 2014 we had the opportunity to go through the museum. It was incredible. A very special and moving tribute to not just World Trade Center, but to the plane that went down in Pennsylvania and the Pentagon. The museum is worth the money and time spent. If you have an opportunity please go and don't rush through it. It's beautifully done.

This wall inside the museum is captivating. The letters for Virgil's
quote were forged out of remnant World Trade Center steel by
New Mexico Blacksmith Tom Joyce.

This placard gives the reason for the blue
squares on the wall with Virgil's quote. 

Memorial Pool outside, the water flows eternally and every single person
who lost their life that day has their name inscribed on the wall.
It's very moving and special.

Make Your Bed Day  
As a favor to my hub I made the bed today!  He loves a made bed, I am indifferent to it.
How about you?

No News is Good News Day
Sometimes this is true, sometimes not.
It makes me think of a show I loved, Early Edition. For the show's main character, the incredibly handsome Gary Hobson (played by Kyle Chandler), no news really is good news.

Stand Up to Cancer
This is where the end of cancer begins

Hot Cross Buns Day
Of course I immediately think of the nursery rhyme. *grin*
But I can make my own hot cross buns today, and you can too!
How did hot cross buns become two a penny?
