September 11th

In the rising of the sun, and its going down, we remember them
In the blowing of the wind, and in the chill of Winter, we remember them
In the opening of the buds, and in the warmth of Summer, we remember them
In the rustling of the leaves, and in the beauty of Autumn, we remember them
In the beginning of the year, and when it ends, we remember them
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them
When we have joys we yearn to share, we remember them

  1. On the September 11th, 2001, my husband was supposed to be on the meeting in the Deutsche Bank Building, that tall black building next to the WTC towers, at 2 p.m.. The Deutsche Bank Building was heavily damaged in the September 11attacks after being blasted by the avalanche of debris, ash, dust and smoke that spread from WTC. I was home alone with two little kids. I didn't know for the whole day that he didn't take a train from Philadelphia to NY that morning. He managed to find a rental car only in some small town, since all the rental places in Philadelphia were empty. He drove home to Kansas City for two days.

  2. What a horrible experience for you - not knowing. Your rose a great remembrance of 9/11. I am so glad that your husband was not there on that horrible day in our nations history.

    PS I received the seeds and thank you so much. Can't wait for them to grow so I can show them on my blog. Again thank you Tatyana.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Oh my word how nervous you must have been all day wondering if he was alright. A miracle for sure that he didn't make it to where he was suppose to be. Your rose is beautiful!
    I'm trying to visit a few posts before rushing over to my parents to see Dad again. I'm glad I got to see this one of yours. It just gives me that 'warm all over' feeling.

  4. *sighs and thanks God*
    stay safe and well...!

  5. Oh my stars!!! Never will I forget!!

  6. I wish, I wish, I wish those 3000 people could come home safely to their loved ones.

  7. Some of the strangest blessings that day came from missing a bus, having another appointment, getting a child on the bus to school, or many many other occurences that ended up saving lives. So glad your husband didn't go into the city.

  8. My mother was visiting. Listening to Fine Music Radio. Heard the news, didn't believe my ears. Put on CNN, didn't believe my eyes.

  9. I'm so glad for you that your husband was safe. But, what a heart-wrenching day you had.

    We'll never forget.


  10. What an appropriate sentiment.

    And what a close brush for you! It's uncanny how often simple things determine the course of a life. Very glad he was safe.

    I woke up to a frantic call from a friend 'wake up, turn on cnn, america is being attacked!' I think like most people I was glued to the tv/radio all day, and was drained by the end of it. That and Katrina were images I never thought I'd see from the States.

  11. Lovely rose, lovely sentiment. The deep purple on my website post is oxalis purpurea, a type of shamrock. You could grow it in a pot and take it inside where you live.

  12. Oh my, what a near miss. Whatever made your husband get that rental car, thank goodness. I still remember the shock and the tears I had on that day and in the days after, and I didn't personally know anyone there. But I deeply felt it, as did so many in the U.S. and around the world, and my heart still goes out to all the loved ones of those lost eight years ago.

  13. What a terrible day that was. You must have been a nervous wreck not knowing -- but thank goodness he was safe.

  14. Таня, благодарю тебя за этот фотокадр, ведь эта роза всё говорит - обо всём, что в сердце от 11 сентября 2001 года и в память - в любой день жизни.

  15. I'd gone out to buy a sandwich and I remember returning to the office and seeing my colleagues all standing in silence, with their mouths open, watching the television. A silent newsroom is so unusual, I thought for one mad moment the end of the world had come. I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the screen. At that time we didn't know that 67 Brits had died. We just grieved for America.

  16. i guess the thing about cleeanliness yu've put up here is a must read for all of us. 'Tis not too late for humans to realize the menace they're creating to mother earth. Good Job!!

  17. What a beautiful tribute. Thankyou.

  18. Thank you for sharing this, Tatyana. As horrendous as it was for all of us who watched the day unfold on t.v., I know I cannot imagine what the experience felt like for someone like yourself, or for those who lost someone.
    My sister and brother-in-law were working in Manhattan, but I was able to find out fairly soon that they were o.k.
    I do often think about all the people who have developed health problems after working on clearing the site.

  19. Those things area horrible! My sister in law and there youngest son where in London at the station when the bomb went there. At home in Malmoe was my brother and there other son waiting the whole day without knowing... That was a long day for us all. Later we've been told that the only reason that they wasn't down in the tunnel where that Marcus found a squarrel in the park on there way to the station. If he haden't stopped to watch that... we'll never know what had happende to them. I'm so happy that your husband came home safe to and we'll never forget 9/11 / gittan

  20. Tatyana

    I can't imagine your angst at that time.

    I'll never forget that day. The TV images still haunt today.
