Never Forget

Today 343 firefighters from all over Colorado and surrounding states will climb the stairs twice in the building where I work in memory of the 110 flights of the World Trade Center. There are other Memorial Climbs all over the United States. They do this in memory of the firefighters who gave their lives that fateful September 11. But they also do it to symbolically and powerfully come together. Remember the days that followed in 2001??? We came together as a country, a world, a people. We showed love and compassion for one another. We grieved together. We were brothers and sisters. We still are.

We need to be that way again.


  1. what a wonderful tribute. That video made me cry. This day is hard for so many, my city of Odessa is healing from terror at the hands of a sicko and that just makes today even more emotional. My heart goes out to all who have been hurt.

    1. Thank you, Texasnascarcowgirl. I had not realized you were in Odessa. Your Odessa Permian football team used to whip us Alamogordo Tigers every year back in the '70s. My heart goes out to you and to all in Odessa and in El Paso.

  2. Thank you for reminding us all.


Dusty words lying under carpets,
seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
You can talk to me... (Stevie Nicks)
