Lovely tribute, such a sad day this is remembering all those that lost their lives and left those that loved them behind. I will never for that horrific day.

Wow, the arrangement of those shells displays a much more than ceremonial tribute to the man. Seems like a tribute to his kind. Thanks for posting this, Lily.

It was such a sad day wasn't it? We watched the reading of the names on TV as we lost friends, neighbors and business associates.
