SEPTEMBER- 11 MEMORIAL PARK IN ETHIOPIA

In a few days, it will be eight years since September 11, 2001. It was a day that changed our lives as we know it, the greatest terrorist attack in the United States. So far it looks like the anniversary will pass without much fanfare. I thought I would share some pictures of a monument I visited in Ethiopia in memory of the victims of the greatest terrorist attack on American soil.





This monument was dedicated on September 10, 2004 in memory of all those who lost their lives in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. The US Embassy in Ethiopia, in partnership with the Ethiopian Heritage Trust, and in cooperation with the City Government of Addis Ababa and the Government of Ethiopia has planted three thousand (3000) indigenous seedlings to mark the beginning of the Ethiopia-America September 11 Memorial Park.
  Dedicated on September 10, 2004 by Ambassador Aurelia E. Brazeal and Mayor Arkebe Oqubay, in the presence of his excellency President Girma Giorgis

I must confess after hearing and seeing the pics of your recent trip to Africa I was feeling a 'little' jealous but everything is back to normal. I am sure one day we might 'all' get to visit such a wonderful, historic and mysterious place. God Bless (GB).

In HIS service,
