9/11: 13 Years Later—2014

CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

9/11:

2014, THIRTEEN YEARS LATER

Today we pause to remember the 9/11/2001 events that altered so many aspects of the United States. My husband Monte and I live about 20 miles from where Flight 93 crashed in Somerset County. Below is a list of articles I’ve posted through the years since the tragedy. I hope you take time to read some of them on this day of remembrance. Click on the titles to access the complete articles.

All of the following articles are posted on CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS except LMB RESIDENT’S SEPT. 11, 2001 STORY: Part 1 of 2 and The Twin Towers 

NOTE: The Westmoreland County Historical Society magazine being released later this month contains an in depth article on Flight of Valor, the music composition commissioned by the Somerset County Community Band. It ties in the roles many Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, residents took following the crash of Flight 93 in the adjacent county of Somerset.

NOTE: September 11 is also the birthday of my late nephew Todd James Jay. Keep my sister in your prayers today, too.

LMB RESIDENT’S SEPT. 11, 2001 STORY: Part 1 of 2

NOTE: This story is posted on the Laurel Mountain Borough newsletter site.

LMB resident John was working in one of the twin towers in New York City the morning of September 11, 2001. His story will be posted in the LMBoroLMPark Newsletter in three parts. To view photo illustrations taken by John, click on:

He had many clients in downtown New York, where he found most of his jobs. He also worked in Philadelphia and other places, but the New York work was most challenging.This Tuesday he was working at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter (Company), a very large financial consultant company similar to J. P. Morgan. He’s worked there a half dozen times. They had a television studio they’d just built, completed in December 2000.They had called me to (more…)

Flight 93 Temporary Site: Last (Two) Days

CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

FLIGHT 93 TEMPORARY SITE:

LAST (TWO) DAYS

     Today my husband Monte and I had an opportunity to visit the temporary Flight 93 Memorial, near where the plane crashed on that fateful day, September 11, 2001. Tomorrow, the temporary site will close and on Saturday the new, permanent, site will be dedicated.

      We knew the temporary site had been moved for a third time since its inception to make way for the national Memorial. Because we hadn’t visited the site since 2009, and because of the upcoming Tenth Anniversary, we knew the entrance would be different than it was at our last visit.  We truly didn’t know where we were going, but we followed the signs through strange territory and found a parking space. When we arrived we had to walk through a fenced in walkway to a lot with an overview where we could view the permanent Flight 93 National Memorial site, the construction machines (or are they media vehicles?), and, in the far distance, the (more…)
