Memorial Day – Remembering 911

911 Memorial Park

911 Memorial Park

I was back in New York City this past week putting the finishing touches on the DVD documentary, “Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass” as well as performing at Battery Park.

With Memorial Day coming up I took advantage of some spare time to visit the 911 Memorial which is quite close to Battery Park. Some places just seem to take your breath away and the 911 Memorial Park is one of them. It’s hard to describe the feelings I experienced as I walked around the two reflecting pools and read the names of some of those who died in the attacks. Flowers and pebbles were scattered here and there, tokens that loved ones are not forgotten.

This coming Memorial Day weekend many will remember and honor those who have died, and especially those who died protecting others and our freedom.  Please join me in saying a prayer for those who lost their lives and for the families that lost a loved one.
