Immediately my mind went to all my friends who were still living downtown and taking that bridge daily. I thought of the co-workers who drive that bridge to come and go to work and home. I thought of all the hundreds of times I've driven down that same bridge, and thinking; how could it collapse? Is that supposed to happen, does that ever happen? No matter where you were or what you were doing:
Today we remember, pray and pay tribute to all the families who lost their loved one, to the 149 injured who are still dealing with that day, to the service men and women who risked their lives to save another. We Remember. At 6:05 pm today a caravan of cars will make its way to the Stone arch bridge just a few blocks from the rubble, raise a flag, bells will ring, and 13 names will be read. And a moment of silence will take place, as we remember.
Today at some point take a break, take some time to remember to pray for the families.
