Sept 11, 2001 - Sept. 11, 2011.

God bless all the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters, sons, firemen, and policemen who lost their lives.

10 years.

America remembers.

8:46 a.m., the first plane hit the World Trade Center.

9:03 a.m., the second plane hit the World Trade Center.

9:37 a.m., when the Pentagon was struck.

9:59 a.m., collapse of the south tower at the World Trade Center.

10:03 a.m., the crash in Shanksville.

10:28 a.m., collapse of the north tower at the World Trade Center.

 In Shanksville, Pa., United Flight #93 crashed, 40 crew members and passengers died, after passengers fought back against the highjackers.

At the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, 2753 people were killed when two passenger jets struck the twin towers.

At the Pentagon, 184 passengers and people inside the Defense Department's headquarters died when American Airlines Flight 77 slammed into the building.

President Obama and former President George Bush had special words and thoughts today, as well as many other people.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani reads "A Time for Everything" from Ecclesiastes.

I listened to the songs by James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes", Paul Simon's "The Song of Silence".  A Beyonce song was heard as the news station was showing clips of the Sept 11 scenes. The lyrics brought tears to my eyes.

America. We remember. God Bless.

To Every Thing There is a Season
Ecclesiastes 3. 1-8
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

That reminds me of a Byrds' song. Turn, Turn, Turn?
