Never Forget



In the days following 9/11/01 I created my 9/11 Angel. Tattered, tear stained and dirty -- Angel brought wings to those in need that day. She has hung in my sewing room ever since and each day I see her and feel that terrible pain -- and remember to live each day to the fullest and to remember to say I love you as often as possible -- to give extra hugs and to do all the things we sometimes think we can wait until later to do or say.

Way too true, Jackie. It was a devastating day in so many ways. How sad that our world cannot get beyond things like this.

Everytime I look at my piece, History Repeated, I remember it.

Oh How true Jackie....It is a time to remember and yet a time we would like to forget, but that will never happen.
Your "angel" is so dear....

You are a beautiful soul Jackie. I love your tattered angel. And I know I have embraced life and love differently since that fateful day.
