 Yesterday was a very hard day to relive as we honored those we lost 20 years ago on 9/11. We all remember that day Рwhere we were Рwho we were with Рand how we coped with the days, weeks and months that followed. I coped by blogging about the smells, the sounds and the sights that I witnessed. Some of you have been following my musings, photos and rants for about 20 years. I decided to return to the Museum of the Dog this week to see their new exhibit about some of the rescue dogs of 9/11. When the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001, nearly 10,000 emergency rescue workers joined in the efforts to help. More than 300 of those heroes were dogs. This article from the Doggington Post highlights a few of them. I spent a little time going over some of my posts from that time and thought I would share one of those posts from the 10th anniversary of 9/11. If you have a lot of time on your hands and want to go back in time I share my random and oft times funny musings here. My post from 2011 on the opening of the Memorial site is here. And finally, a post from 2016 when One World Observatory opened. Stay well and keep the faith.

Without any planning we headed downtown to One World Trade Center to see the sensational views from One World Observatory. The views of the City did not disappoint. There were no crowds, no lines – just the City as far as the eye could see. It is fun to try to spy familiar landmarks from such a height. It was a heady experience followed by a visit to the beautiful remembrance space at the 9/11 Memorial at ground level. I recommend this to all.ONEWORLD
