ten years on...

saw a few minutes of the memorial service today

the memorial fountain is beautiful and brilliant
water is always a calming sound
 when the water first flows from the top it looks like the windows of the towers
every single name is etched into bronze around the edge which is back-lit at night
finally a peaceful place for reflection, contemplation and recognition

when they read out the names of every single person who died that day, it still makes me sob
like everyone else, i watched the events unfold live on tv with a baby in my belly and wondering what world was she about to enter

for my generation, we will always remember where we were when the planes hit

and that was lottie's history lesson today
