My Avatar : 9/11
 
The avatar I had the past few days was from the World Trade Center in 2000 .
My avatar today is from the WTC 9/11 memorial wall listing my friend who died on that day as well as others .

I am going to have this avatar there for a while .Its difficult to believe that its nearly 10 years .

My friend who died that day was a highly decorated soldier in Vietnam who saved many lives . He then became one of the most highly decorated police officers in the history of NYC .
After his retirement he took a job as head of security for a company in the WTC .This was going to be his least stressful time or so he believed .
He saved many lives on 9/11 and forever will be my personal hero .My wife and I have been to 9/11 memorials in several cities and have left messages about him as I have on every internet memorial site .
I find myself teary eyed as I post this .

When the Carnival Miracle sails from NY Harbor, on 9/11, it will make a short stop, with a moment of silence. Hard to believe some people are objecting to this, including an ex NYC policeman:( I think it's a wonderful thing to stop for a moment.

Our own DougR, shared with us all that week, his own experiences. Ten years have passed in the blink of an eye..

Yes ,10 years have passed in the blink of an eye ,I agree .Stopping for a moment of silence is great .A great many of my friends and relatives are ex NYC police officers and its difficult to understand why one would object .
