Remembering September 11, 2001


Can you believe it has been 10 years already? Seems hard to believe….time goes by so quickly. I even remember where I was that day when I heard the news, as well as who told me.

I wanted to share a few of my favorite video clips that I think are relevant to this anniverary. Just take a minute out of your busy day to watch them..

this first video features the song ‘Imagine,’ as it was sung on an episode of Glee . The cast of the Glee club sees one of the competiting teams, who happens to consist of deaf / hard of hearing students. Its one of my favorite videos/songs, and seeing the two teams come together to sing/sign it is beautiful. Of course, the words are amazing, especially at a time when we are all reflecting upon the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Just watch & listen….

In regards to September 11, we will never forget the victims of this tragedy, their families, and the brave men and women who lost their lives trying to rescue others. There is one other group of heroes who played a big role…. the search and rescue dogs of 9/11. (photos via NY times)

A lot of dogs served without understanding why.  Many of these dogs have long since passed due to complications from being at the various locations in which they worked. After watching these videos and reading about lives saved / people identified in this tragedy, I can’t help but be saddened by the number of strays & mistreated dogs in the world today. These dogs didn’t turn down the opportunity to rescue people on Sept. 11 and the surrounding days, yet so many times we pass up the opportunity to give a dog a home, whether we look at them through the window of pet stores & carry on with our day, change the channel during ASPCA commercials, or refrain from caring for any strays because “someone else will do it.” Just something to think about. These videos are very much worth watching…
