Wish I Had Seen This Earlier!

Tomorrow morning, the officially pnuemonia-free Hubby, Maggie the Traveling Dog, and I will be leaving for Hannibal, Missouri to spend the week of Thanksgiving at my parent's house, Robards Mansion Bed and Breakfast.  Along the way, we plan to do a little sightseeing in Chattanooga and Nashville.  Today, I thought I'd post a few pictures of a 9/11 Memorial we spotted at a fire station in West Palm Beach.  I wish I had seen this before 9/11!

The Memorial was fashioned from some of the steel girders from the fallen towers.

This plaque shows exactly where the girders had been located in the tower.

We, as a nation, have a lot to be thankful for.


  1. That is an impressive memorial and I agree, we have a lot to be thankful for.

  2. That is soooo beautiful, Candy! Thank you for sharing it. It made me cry to think of all the every-day-ordinary-unsuspecting office workers who perished that terrible day. Then I cried with pride remembering those extraordinary larger-than-life heroes who gave their all helping others in the line of duty.


  3. What a wonderful memorial. Breaks my heart. And I'm so glad your hubby is all well! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Vanna
