Default Today We Stand Together
It is overwhelming for me to see the images. I lost two dear friends that day.

Yes, Dwayne, it is a very emotional day. I'm sorry you lost two friends.

We had a beautiful church service this morning. Singing "My Country Tis Of Thee" brought tears to my eyes. Before going to church we watched the beginning of the service at Ground Zero. When the choir sang the National Anthem while the men held the tattered flag, I cried. This day brings out so many emotions.

It's a day few of us with ever forget.

Thanks Nadine, I knew it would be emotional, but I didn't know it would get to me so badly. I finally had to turn the TV off and go for a walk on the beach to get the images out of my head.

Did anyone see the Budweiser commercial where the horses knelt? It was beautiful.

I noted that too. Very nice.
I could not watch for very long as tears came to me when one of the readers said he lost his daughter. My daughter was only 8 blocks away from the tower and I thank God she was not closer.

It was very touching. I thought it was the original one from back then. Of course I watched TV News for so many days straight in a row my eyes may have been glazed over.

I think the original one is below. I remember crying when it was shown. To my knowledge they only showed it the one time back then as a one time thing.

You are most welcome. Those horses are magnificent. I got to see them at Busch Gardens once up close. They keep them so well groomed. They are huge!

I don't remember ever seeing that video. Thank you for posting it. Penny, is that the same one you saw?
