September 11th

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to acknowledge 9/11 today and for everyone to remember this day and how it changed our lives forever. Strangers helped strangers and regular people became heros. It was a day of shock and we never thought we could get through it. It was a day that made me proud to be an American and a New Yorker. I saw things that day I will never forget, as I am sure you all have too. I lost many people on that day and now I and proud to say I am going to spend the rest of my life married to a member; a brother of the FDNY. I am not a religious person so no matter what you are please just take one moment today and remember the pain, the tragedy, the sorrow and those who were lost that day but also remember the strength, the pride and the will of survival for those who remain. And no matter what your politics are or your personal feelings of the war remember there are real people fighting it and real families waiting for them to come home. One last thing use today as a reminder that we can not sweat the small stuff and be thankful for all we have and how lucky we are to have met our future/present husbands tell them you love them an extra time today and I am also thankful for "meeting" all of you.

ya know..I still lived in Philly when 9/11 happened and I can imagine that everyone back east is still really remembering this day...but now I'm in Phx. and this morning during our pledge AND the national anthem not a thing was said and I was really upset about it!

I think that is one reason I wrote this post. I went to work in NYC today and I didn't feel anyone remembered. This day should never be forgotten, and not to carry on the pain and anger but to remember those who were lost mothers, fathers, sisters, children, etc...not only in NYC but for everyone that was effected in the US that day

Did you guys know 9/11 is now called Patriot Day? Maybe I'm out of the loop but I just noticed it on the calendar today.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
