September 11, 2006

Since it seems it's a given to commemorate 9/11, as the attacks are now referenced, I thought I'd share this one - from ShaBot, a comic strip about an Orthodox Jewish man and his animatronic friend. The strip is called ShaBot6000 and the artist/writer is Ben Baruch. His strip is usually an off beat commentary on an Orthodox Jewish life. This one makes sense in its own offbeat way. Shalom.
Today marks the five year anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
A gift of wood is traditional for a fifth year wedding anniversary.
For America, the gift is freedom.
To all those who lost friends, loved ones or just mourn the loss of so many at one time, in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania, my sincere sympathies. I still cannot imagine the enormous loss on that day 5 years ago, even though we all saw it over and over again. For those of us in the metropolitan New York area, it struck us personally, even if there was no intimate connection with the victims. I could not believe it had happened until I went to the Eagle Rock Reservation, which looks directly at the WTC site. There's now a memorial there, as there was an impromptu one of sorts just several days after the attack.

  1. Pau in Catalan means peace and is a Catalan man name too.

    Did you know that Catalan national day is September 11th. too? Would you like that I explain more about it?
