6 Unusual Ways To Remember 9/11

  • Pin it

It’s that day again. I remember watching a movie the other day and hearing the main character say “10 minutes won’t change my life”. 9 / 11 will always mark that day when seconds changed lives. And if nothing can turn back time, at least we have to remember what we’re taking with us from that day on. What we learned.

And the most important thing is (isn’t it always?): love! The littlest things matter! Don’t let anyone go through the door in the morning without a loving kiss & embrace! But I don’t want to darken this day. I want to remember. Every way I can. Here’s some really surprising ways some people chose to remember it!

The picture above was commissioned to photographer Rodney Smith in 1995. It’s the fashionable way to remember it. Below, the impressive Man with the 9/11 Tattoo. Clearly not your ordinary ink!

A 9 / 11 manicure is always a nice way to paint what your heart tells you to. Or you can just wear a symbolic bracelet like the one below.

Whatever you do, however you paint it, just remember it! I loved this pretty simple wall art and the stuffed animals parading the national flag. And, most of all, I loved Ryan Ray‘s photo!

I still cry when I watch the towers being hit.
I think it was the saddest day of my life , and I had many of them.
My heart goes for the families of the victims.

I wrote all the above with misty eyes, literally crying towards the end. I pray for safe, peaceful days!

That was such a very sad day….I was home being ill and I drank my first coffee after a week and switching tv channels. On CNN were the Towers, one burning and I thought at first: “Oh my God these small private jets and helicopters are too dangerous in a city like New York.” I still had John Kennedy Jr’s tragic death in mind…and then….I was numb for like an hour staring in shock until I heard the telephone…..It was a horrible day for the free world. Keeping in mind people of so many nationalities did die there.

Kpriss, with this article and these people’s so very different emotions to show their feelings you brought a wonderful homage to the victims and their families.

I’m crying now…..I have to vote tomorrow for the future of my country but also Europa. Considering my vote was the hardest ever for most as for most of us to make tomorrow. I hope I have made a wise choice and yes, peace and solidarity for this world were an important issue in my choice. Especially on a day like this when we realise again how fragile peace and a peaceful life is.
