September 11, 2010

This is the first anniversary of 9/11 that I haven't been in New Jersey. I thought it might be for the good since it's never an easy day.

I was driving up the 405 near Long Beach this morning when I noticed a Prius with a Support the Troops ribbon flying an American flag on a bracket. That's different, I thought.

Then I noticed the car in front of it had two flags flying. Were they going to some sports event?

Then I saw the next car also had flags; painted on the window "9/11 We will never forget."

It was a mile-long caravan in the right lane, led by a truck decked out in the Stars & Stripes.

It's still an emotional day.

I will never forget.

Nor will I, even though I live on the other side of the country.

I'm glad you saw the caravan.

Sounds like it touched you - and joined you - in your emotion for this day.

Thanks for the post.

I was in Manhattan that day randomly. I'm always grateful when I don't remember ON the day, though I certainly can never forget.

We, the Israelis will certainly not forget this day.
unfortunately we live this kind of nightmare over and over again :-(
