Ceremony on CNN Sunday. I am Irish on daddy's side and Scot on Mothers side of the family, and marching feet and beating drums and men in kilts with bag pipes made goose bumps stand up on my arms.
I stood four feet from our wide screen TV and marched in step with them while taking these photos.
In my car early today, they were taking calls from people telling what they were doing on this day.
Local Caller said I am a 26 year veteran Fire Fighter, on the day of the towers, my 9 year old son stayed home sick from school. As we watched the news, he looked up at me and said. "daddy, do we need to get our guns?"
He said his son is now 19 and is a Marine and will leave for Afghanistan in December. He said from the day the boy saw the towers go down, he wanted to protect America.
This shot of President Obama and the first lady, looks like the ghosts of the ones who died were gathered to hear the memorial service. Pray for our country and our leaders.
