A Day That Will Be Remembered Forever...

September 11, 2001... What can be said about this day. This was the day that the United States of America faced it's first actual national devastation/terrorist attack.

The World Trade Centers in New York were hit by two planes each filled with innocent civilians.  The World Trade Centers were hit and tons of lives were lost on this day. Following the attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Washington D.C. was hit. I remember this part the most because my father was supposed to go to the Pentagon that day... He was actually driving to the pentagon when the Twin Towers were hit. Finally another plane, flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. This could have gone anywhere, maybe the White House or Senate but the passengers on flight 93 gave their lives to fight back and make a long term difference.

For me, 9/11 was a memorial day. I remember it vividly even though I was only in Kindergarten. I was at school and my mom came to pick me up early and then took me home. I remember sitting on the couch with my mom watching the T.V. and the devastating news that was streaming from it. It is a day that will stay with the us forever.

Now for those of you who know my religion, I am Jewish. I just want to take a moment to say a quick prayer for those who are not with us anymore.


Kel Maleh Rachamim - Prayer for the Soul of the Departed



For a Man:
Hebrew and Transliteration:
Translation:
G-d, full of compassion, Who dwells on high, grant true rest upon the wings of the Shechinah (Divine Presence), in the exalted spheres of the holy and pure, who shine as the resplendence of the firmament, to the soul of
(mention his Hebrew name and that of his father)
who has gone to his [supernal] world, for charity has been donated in remembrance of his soul; may his place of rest be in Gan Eden. Therefore, may the All-Merciful One shelter him with the cover of His wings forever, and bind his soul in the bond of life. The Lord is his heritage; may he rest in his resting-place in peace; and let us say: Amen.
For a Woman:
Hebrew and Transliteration:
Translation:
O G-d, full of compassion, Who dwells on high, grant true rest upon the wings of the Shechinah (Divine Presence), in the exalted spheres of the holy and pure, who shine as the resplendence of the firmament, to the soul of
(mention her Hebrew name and that of her father)
who has gone to her [supernal] world, for charity has been donated in remembrance of her soul; may her place of rest be in Gan Eden. Therefore, may the All-Merciful One shelter her with the cover of His wings forever, and bind her soul in the bond of life. The Lord is her heritage; may she rest in her resting-place in peace; and let us say: Amen.

This is the one Ethan and I saw in Assembly. Very Very Sad...





Let me end this post with

God bless all of us, God bless the fallen soldiers, God bless the victims of 9/11, and God bless the United States of America.
Thank You.
