It's hard to believe that 10 years have passed. I still remember that morning getting a call from a good friend telling me to turn on my TV. She said "We're being attacked". It was truly frightening. Even though it did not directly affect me or mine, it affected all of us. Never again will we be able to feel that naive innocence as a country. That said, I really think most of us would like to see our troops come home from a senseless war. This is my homage to our fallen -- soldiers, firefighters/rescue people and the occupants of the twin towers.
I took these images at a park near us just prior to Memorial Day this year. The flags are erected every year. A beautiful sculpture of a Marine stands there as a reminder of all our fallen who have died in service to our country. That includes fire and police.
