Remembering 9-11, Thinking about Peace

Today, I printed the Peace Flags.

I printed the first Peace. just as President and Mrs. Obama were observing a moment of silence at 8:42 A.M.

9-11 is always a somber day.  I'm sure everyone can remember where they were that day. I remember getting a call from my husband, who works on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. He told me to turn on the T. V.--a horrible accident had just happened--a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. Still on the phone with him, I turned on the T. V. in time to see the second plane crash.

As the morning progressed, the news kept getting worse. The plane hitting the Pentagon. Another plane on its way to Capitol Hill. A second call from my husband and I was in a panic...Get out of there! He let me know that he was on his way, but it would take a while, the traffic out of D. C. was bad and he was driving a colleague home.

We have family in New York City too and in New Jersey. I was thankful as we all touched base. They were all safe.

I was even more grateful when my husband walked through the door.

I feel so lucky. I know others were not so lucky.

I will be forever thankful to those brave souls of Flight 93. If it hadn't been for them, my husband might not have walked through the door eleven years ago.

  As I work on the Flags today, I realize how important it is to continue to work towards the goal of Peace.

    1. thanks, Jennifer. I'm adding a few painted details. They will be completed by the end of the weekend. I also did a second set. How are your flags going?
