Remembering 9-11

On September 11, 2011 this year Los Alamitos Bay Landing had a huge celebration in honor of the 10 year anniversary of 9-11.
They had festivities that started at 2:30 that afternoon and went well into the night.. It was the 1st time ever to have fireworks in the bay, and they just happen to be directly in front of the Hertzog's home in Naples.
We had a small group get-together and had a really fun night, drinking wine, eating pizza, and giving thanks for those spared and remembering those taken on that never to be forgotten September morning 10 years ago..
I could've lost my closest friend that day. Kim Hertzog sat on the runway in an American Airline jet waiting to take off from Boston's Logan airport when the 2 previous planes that were on the same runway hit the two World Trade Center buildings.   I had just left her on the 8th to come back to LB. Kim and I took Dieter, (Kim & Leif's oldest son) back to Harvard University to get him oriented and settled into his dorm.  She had tried to get on an earlier flight and thank God she wasn't able to. 
Where were you that morning? It's a day we shall never forget!!
