In Loving Memory Tolls the Bell

In Loving Memory Tolls the Bell

---
This image, shot on the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, will forever create a lump in my throat.
---
The bell is being tolled for all the souls that were lost from Bucks County, PA on that fated day. Among them was Victor Saracini, Pilot of Flight United Flight 175.
----
This solemn and beautiful ceremony took place at Garden of Reflection, a 9/11 memorial park in Victor Saracini's home town of Yardley (also my home). The bell tolled for Captain Saracini at 9:03 a.m., the moment that Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower.
----
The creation of Garden of Reflection was lovingly conceived and made into reality by local family members of those lost on that fateful day.

Our local city also does a 9/11 ceremony, with the fireman doing a "ringing of the bell", to honor those killed on that day. Definitely a moving tribute, and I'm sure you felt the emotion too. Nicely done, Michelle!

Tells the story very well, Michelle. Great work. Interesting to see they got 25 years out of their pumper truck.
