9/11 Ceremony

On Saturday the United Goodyear Firefighters Local 4005, along with Goodyear's police and fire departments, conducted its annual memorial flag raising ceremony and pancake breakfast at Goodyear Fire Station No. 185, 15875 W. Clubhouse Drive, just west of Pebble Creek Parkway. The breakfast was free, but donations were accepted for firefighters’ charities.

The little girl in the red, white and blue dress reflects the solemnity of the occasion, even though she was not born when 9/11 happened and is too young to understand fully the event.

There's that sweet little girl again. Her dad's loving hand clasped around her ankle is so sweet. Even though they're in the background I think they're the focal point of this photo. What a perfect capture!

I just love how generations intertwine here. That little girl probably wasn't even born yet on the day that changed all our lives. And she's wearing tricolours (which the French and American share in their flags). Lovely shot for a terrible memory.

Great shot, with the little girl in the background. I'm so lucky to have something HAPPY to remember on 9/11-- the birth of my little girl!

Hats off to those who remember and honor those who fell to Muslim terrorism on 9/11.
