  2. I remember it so clearly. I actually saw the second plane hit as the Today Show host was talking about the speculation of what had happened. My farrier & I had a strange bond for sometime after, as he was here. I had a TV in the barn office and I brought it to the barn aisle so we could watch. Thanks Bonnie.

  4. Thanks for these words - I was remembering an old friend who was lost that day and left behind 4 kids. I loved that novel too.

  5. The symbolism of that loss in NYC still grips me nine years later. I can only hope and pray that my country is more soulful, more self-aware, more rooted in the values that have shaped us. Considering those who bravely gave their lives on that day, and continue to do so with what has transpired sense....gives me encouragement for the soul of this country.

    Thanks for doing this, and thanks for Ernie!

  6. It will always be a, "Where were you when it happened" moment, or as Alan Jackson sings, "Where were you when the world stopped turning?"

    It's hard to believe it's been 8 years. It's still hard to watch the tapes of those planes smashing into the towers. I pray for everyone who lost someone that day.

  8. I couldn't have articulated this any better than that statement. This has been a favorite quote for me for some time and is especially fitting of today! I especially love the green and life affirming nature of the background on the canvas!
