In Honor of Those We Lost

May time soften the pain
Until all that remains
Is the warmth of the memories
And the love.

Sarah Stuart is an award-winning author whose books are based on her show business experience, her concern for animals, the challenges of her Christian faith, and her passions for history and travel. Sarah's hope is that readers will enjoy her novels as an escape from reality, but be left understanding that fame and fortune often comes at a high personal cost. Also, an increased perception of the threat to animals: those shot in the name of sport for trophy heads, endangered species, many poached for their fur and ivory, and tragically discarded pets.

  1. I will never forget that morning. Nor the rest of the day watching CNN, calling friends who lived in NYC, and just the surrealness of the whole attack. The next day was very strange as I resumed my work schedule and marveled how nothing had changed. I expect the sky to be orange, or the air to smell differently but… no. The world had changed but nothing about it had changed…

  2. Thank you for the “view from America”, Paul.

    We were fortunate in that my sister and her husband were working in the Pentagon that day – the part that suffered no damage. The first we knew, since we weren’t watching TV, was an urgent email to say they were safe before communications crashed. They lost friends and work colleagues.

    1. I think we all watched both over and over. I know it was on all the television stations.

      I saw the site when we were in New York. There was a balcony open that was supposed to be where you could pay a silent tribute. Needless to say, a couple of years on it was being treated as a good view of a “tourist attraction”.
