Piece of the World Trade Center

As the anniversary of 9/11 quickly approaches many communities have been making plans for how they would honor the 10th year after such a tragic moment in our nations history. I know I have this thought every year, but it seems so hard to believe that another year has passed and we are now 10 years past this horrendous moment that we wish had never happened.  But the two large holes where the twin towers once stood will forever be evidence of the thousands of lives lost and impacted that terrible day.  I can't even begin to imagine what it will be like to be in New York the day the two memorial fountains are supposed to be opened on September 12th.
Now my own community is stepping up to proudly honor the price that was paid that day by so many hero's and a piece of the World Trade Center will be a part of our town center near the fire station.  I am proud to be a part of this military community, where my husband once served as a Marine in the Corp.  Our fire chief applied two years ago to have one of the steel beams and we are honored to receive it.  The 13 foot, more than 10,000 pound beam will be the centerpiece of memorial that will be constructed in time for next years anniversary but it will be unveiled this coming Sunday in honor of the 10th anniverary. 

How will you and your community honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11?
