Eagle Rock Reservation Tribute to September 11th




For this week's Wordless/Wordful Wednesday I am cheating. I am re-posting something I wrote on this blog on September 11, 2009, the eight-year anniversary of September 11th. It was only my third post, and no one was reading this blog then! Read it below after the asterisks (stars).

For more Wordless Wednesday, read here.

Eight Years Ago Today

Eagle Rock Reservation sign
Today is September 11th, 2009, the eighth anniversary of that terrible day which will "live in infamy".

Sometimes that horrible day in 2001 seems like yesterday and at other times it feels like a long time ago. So much has happened since then . . .
On that day many locals went to the Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange, NJ to watch the unfolding tragedy. Eagle Rock has a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline.

Now there is a Essex County 9/11 Memorial at that place.

Here is the entrance to the memorial:
