It is believed that “TIME HEALS WOUNDS”, but does it really? How much time will it take to heal our wounds of 9/11. It has been EIGHT years now, but it seems like only yesterday, we all lived through the worst tragedy of the history of our free nation.
So many lives were destroyed, dreams shuttered, families profoundly hurt, all from cowardly, senseless act of terrorism. Our peace and freedom was scarred deeply, and we will never forget that day of 9/11, which only made our nation stronger and even more united, to do everything in our power to prevent such tragedy from occurring on our land ever again.
My sincere sympathy and prayers pour out from my heart, to each and every person affected in anyway by the tragedy of 9/11.
Vichnaya Pamyat (Eternal Memory) to my 3rd cousin, Scott D. Bart, a young and very bright professional, who perished in the Twin Towers on that tragic day of 9/11.
This picture was taken at Flushing Cemetery in Queens, New York, on Memorial Day, by the credited photographer.
When I found this picture, I thought it would be very appropriate for this post, since my cousin’s great-grandmother, who came to this country in search of the “American Dream” in the early 1900′s, settled in Queens, New York, and also was laid to rest at the Flushing Cemetery, along with her other family members.
