Eight years later

When it comes to September 11, it never seems like words are enough.

On September 11, 2001, my husband came home from work specifically to put out our flag before we even knew who was responsible for the terrible attacks on that day.

This year, a child who is too young to remember September 11, 2001 helped my husband display our flag. We are teaching our children what the meaning of remembering September 11th is all about.

We will never forget.

As you teach your children, I remember the 3 year old daughter of one of my customers who, with her mother, lost their lives on the first plane. We will never forget.

I applaud you. I am a teacher of fifth graders and I am comforted that they know about September 11th and seem to have empathy.

Kids can be cruel without meaning it but it seems this subject is being treated properly.

It's sad how many people have forgotten what that day was about..... Don't see very many flags hanging anymore

Sweet and Savory--Appreciate your comment and input--that's good to hear.

Off Grid Survival--I didn't see as many flags as I would have hoped for. I hope people won't ever forget. Thanks for your comment.
