Twin Towers

Shortly after 9-11 my brother asked me to do a Twin Towers piece.   I found this one by Mystic Stitch and really did ennjoy stitching it.   Today it hangs on his walls.

Like everyone else I remember where I was and what I was doing the moment I found out.   Tim had called me and said a plane hit the Twin Towers.  So I turned on the news and shortly after saw the second plane hit.  I knew it was an act of terrorism that second plane didn't even try to miss the tower it headed right for it.   Like everyone I was almost glued to the TV.   I called our church office told the secretary so she turned on her radio.     After the other two planes sturck I wondered  what would become of us.

A few days later we found out a man in his 30's that had gone to our church mostly in the summer and was on the softball team was  working in Windows in the Twin Towers.   He did not get out.   I had seen him and his wife and daughter a few times but did not know them personally

My nephew was shot in Kuwait training for Iraq.   He lost complete use of his left hand.   He saw the bullet coming and ducked, putting his hand above his head.   At least it hit his hand not his head.  

Anyone alive that day will never forget and it changed America forever.  

Well until next time Happy Stitching.

What a nice thing to stitch that for your brother - it looks wonderful and such a good memorial, too.
