September 11

John Bergin 11/10/61--9-/11/01

“What separates us from the animals, what separates us from the chaos, is our ability to mourn people we’ve never met.”  David Levithan, Love Is the Higher Law

Sending blessings on this day of remembrance. Unspeakably huge thanks to John for his service and to him, you & yours for your sacrifice. We are free to live, to aspire, to paint, and there are far too many to thank for it. ♥

Your brother is a hero, Celeste. Thank you for remembering him and helping us all to remember.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful photograph. I hope our country never stops honoring those who gave their lives.

The quote you posted is powerful and true. September 11 is a reminder of all those people that gave the ultimate sacrifice for us. I didn't know your brother was one of those special people. Hugs to you and your family.

Thanks, Linda, Carol, Sherry, Martine and Karen..John Bergin wasn't my brother. He is a Bergin with an "i' instead of an "e" so he is related to me...but I never met him. I think we all feel "related" to the firefighters who died that day.

Crying as I write this!
Thank you John and so many, many others.
Firefighters hold such a dear and sacred place in my heart!
It is so very important to remember the many, many people who suffered
on 9/11! Thank you Celeste.
So sad.

You know, I knew that. Where does the memory go??? Still, a wonderful and powerful tribute to our fallen heroes.

This day is also embedded in the hearts of Canadians. I remember the moment I heard and the tears still come to my eyes when I think of the sadness of that time that still floods back into my thoughts when this time of the year comes around. We will never forget.
