The anniversary of 9/11 is this coming Friday.
The post that follows this was written one year ago; I had only been blogging for a month.
Back then, I didn’t have Clustr Maps – I didn’t know where my readers were coming from. I’m still amazed at the far flung places my blog reaches.
When I pulled this blog up from hibernation…I remembered of one of the most touching stories surounding September 11th and the aftermath. Does anyone else remember that our planes couldn’t land on the east coast? NYC especially? That all flights were diverted elsewhere when US airspace was shut down?
Our neighbors to the North…came to our rescue. New Foundland, stepped up and welcomed our families & friends. While everyone waited out the grounding of flights, complete strangers opened their homes & their hearts to their neighbors to the south, giving them a place to stay until they could return home.
Read the attached link.
Tell me it doesn’t make you cry with joy and gratitude.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people of New Foundland, who took in my fellow Americans during the darkest days in our recent history.
People of Canada, thank you.
If you have a personal story about waiting out the restricted flights, comment here. I would love to hear from you.
