I came across a story from Minnesota that I thought I would share on this blog. It is easy to get so caught up in our day to day chores and lives that we forget about our neighbors and the country as a whole. Next month will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and all around the country there will be events to commemorate that day in our history.Thousands of public and private memorials dot the landscape of the country just like the one in the picture from an auto lot in Greenwich.
People in one town in Minnesota are busily creating a memorial park to all those who lost their lives on 9/11. The story of that effort is titled From Rubble To Remembrance (click the title to read) and includes a short video showing the work these people are putting into building this memorial park
“In this corner of southwest Minnesota a 9/11 memorial park made out of pavers andconcrete is scheduled to be unveiled on the tenth anniversary of the attacks, it’s been in the works ever since Schafer made the trip out to ground zero shortly after the twin towers came tumbling down.
“We’d never really tried to even measure or think about an incident that large and so we were concerned, are we ready? So, we wanted to do a lessons learned with the folks at ground zero,” Schafer said. ”
I’m sure we all want to thank everyone across the country that are expending effort to build memorials that commemorate 9/11. This memorial park includes a paver with a star painted on it for each of those who lost their life on that day as well as those members of the town who served in the resulting wars and did not return to their families.
