News, American History, Remembrance: Honor these Names

September 11, 2001 is a day – in the memory of many Americans – that is similar to the day that President John F. Kennedy was shot… your mind instantly returns to that moment in time and geography where you first heard this horrific news.

Two members of my family survived that day in New York, running away from the collapsing buildings along with thousands of others.  One of those young men stood in line later that morning at a hospital to give blood.  Finally, after hours of waiting, a nurse came out and thanked them all for waiting patiently, and gently explained there was no need for blood donations that day.

CNN has posted a list of those who died on September 11, 2001 and the link is here.
