Locally, the Fire Departments in both Pleasanton and Livermore held a moment of silence and lowered the flag to honor those who died, so that we might never forget. A small group gathered at the flag pole of Station 1 in Pleasanton at 6:59 am.
On the 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial website, there is a beautiful story of the Survivor Tree...a pear tree that was buried in the Trade Towers rubble, nursed back to health and survives today as a testament to life on the memorial grounds. Click the link and watch the wonderful video they have created to tell the story.
May God continue to be a source of strength and comfort to those who carry on, whose lives have been changed forever.
