This post should be sponsored by Kleenex. But it isn’t.

It’s a post that will remind you to hug your kids tight. Or even tighter. As we remember September 11, 2001.

It was one of those “I remember exactly what I was doing” moments in history.

But on a tragedy so, so large in scale, it’s the stories of the individual people that bring it all close to home.

This audio/video that I first listened to over at US fashion blog, Beautifully Invisible, is just one of those stories.

It brought me to tears as my daughter is the same age as this girl.

Yes, America we remember with you.

      Thinking of you Rhonda and yes here in Australia we have empathized with Americans every step of the way. Australians were also targeted in the Bali bombings and one of my now girlfriends and mentors is a survivor of that tragedy.

  1. Just devastating. So many families who lost loved ones. I cried my eyes out (not for the first time today). Have linked to you in my latest blog – oftentimes it is so easy to only see the big picture of tragedies like this, and forget the real human toll. The children growing up without fathers and mothers, the mothers and fathers living without their children.

  2. Lest we forget, my thoughts are with the lost their family, friends and the service men and women working to rid our world of this evil, will we humans ever learn to love our fellow man?
