Remembering 9/11 A Canadian View

Today is a sad day indeed and The Canadian Cats does not talk about unhappy events…USUALLY.  However, 9/11 was devastating to so many, we can not pretend life went on as normal.  Life changed from that day forward.  Security is tight and feelings of mistrust lie just under the surface of several people.

Everyone remember’s where they were when the Trade Centers were hit by passenger planes and exploded into infamy.  A horrific and unbelievable event.  As were the other tragedies of 9/11.  The toll of those touched by this day is monumental.                                                                    aafriendsCanada  responded with Operation Yellow Ribbon.  The aim of the Canadian government was to remove potential destructive air traffic from the US airspace as quickly as possible.  There were a total of 238 planes grounded on Canadian soil due to Operation Yellow Ribbon..

It is now 15 years from that monstrous day.  Are we safer now?  Do we respect our fellow-man once again?  We’re working on it and it may take a long time to gain the trust we had before 9/11.  However, New York City is still here and where there is life there is hope.                                                                       aaashoksmemorial911NEVER AGAIN LORD, NEVER AGAIN                                                            SHOKOKALI2

      It’s up to ALL of us…together we can have peace or continue to shatter lives with hurtful thoughts and destruction. This should never happen again!
      Easy and family, your country is going through the pains of this form of terrorism. We are betting on the innate goodness of people to win.

    Going to take advantage of this opportunity and pass on a little hint. When emergencies happen, cell phone communication gets bogged down real fast.Text instead. It travels on a different frequency.

    A beautiful tribute and time of remembrance by our dear Canadian friends. I was in a staff meeting at J103 Contemporary Christian Music where I worked for 10 years. Everything stopped.

      You’re so right, everything stopped. There were no sounds from the street, no chirping of birds…no sounds anywhere, as everyone held their collective breaths.
      Shoko’s dad was a kitten and the only twinkle in his eye was his next meal.

    I think you’re right! What a sad development but true….I feel the same way. There is instant communication now and as soon as any horrible deed is done, we hear about it. Bad news has always travelled faster than good news. Here’s to our friendships in Blogville. *clink*

    OMC! Yes! We have to thank the Canadians for their hospitality to the people who were rerouted to Canada and were grounded for days. I’ve read stories about people letting Americans stay at their houses. Canada was indeed a big part of the healing.

    What an excellent post of remembrance. It doesn’t seem possible that 15 years have passed. And unfortunately the terrorism continues throughout the world. We pray that our dream of peace will someday be a reality. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
