Still Remembering

I just want to take a moment to remember the 2996 people who died in the World Trade Center attacks five years ago. Beth has the list of all the blogger tributes here

I wrote this last year...and it is still true for me. While I didn't know any of the WTC victims personally; the memory of one man does live on in someone close to me. One of the men on my dad's crew that went to New York with him had a son born shortly after their first trip. He named his son after a fallen firefighter from the 118th Ladder Company named Joseph Agnello. His tribute is here.

It's wonderfully written and fitting of the man it honors. It's my humble prayer that the families of the fallen know true peace and that Americans as individuals and as a nation never forget the events of September 11, 2001.
