Remembrance II

"Remembrance II" - Pastel Painting, Size 5 by 7
 
Today we remember the tragic events that took place on this day 11 years ago. Do you remember what you were doing when you first heard? I bet you do. I was in 2nd hour, Advanced Biology class, my senior year. We spent the rest of the day watching the news. It was this event that fueled my desire to join the military.
 
Last year I painted "Remembrance" in honor of the 10th anniversary. I think I may paint one every year.
 
Please keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers today.
