Remember the 11th of September!

Comal County remembers and will not forget what happened on the 11th of September.g

My daughter's school, Norwich University, honors the victims of September 11th by placing one flag for each victim in the Upper Parade grounds and then stands sentries and take turns doing guard walks for 24 hours.  The ceremonies end with the entire Corps of Cadets turning out last night for the shadow taps ceremony.

The picture below the piper was taken by a cadet of the field of flags.

Do not ever forget.


Meanwhile our embassies are attacked and our Ambassador is murdered and our President's response was to apologize.

Comal County joins country in remembering terrorist attacks

NEW BRAUNFELS — The years move on and sometimes so do our attention spans.

Memorials commemorating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, PA., — where hijacked jet planes crashed killing thousands of people in the worst terrorist attack in United States history — seem to be growing less numerous than in years past. The day might be becoming less and less prevalent in our minds, though no less significant in our hearts.

Local events in Comal County signaled that the day remains important.
