Always remember this day in history, where you were, what you did, and who you were with.  The September 11 terrorist attacks of the four hijacked planes resulted in widespread loss and destruction.

Today, the nation honors the victims’ families and others by gathering at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, PA., by remembering that fateful day 11 years ago.  There will be a moment of silence for each time a hijacked plane hit its target and one for when for when the flight crashed into the field in Shanksville.

Locally, the Fire Chief’s Association of Palm Beach County will hold a 9/11 remembrance ceremony at the Christ Fellowship auditorium.  Attendees are invited to visit the 9/11 Memorial at the Palm Beach Gardens Fire Station 3 at 5161

Perhaps, “Rainy days and Mondays” got the Carpenters down because they didn’t live in our area!  If the immensely popular brother and sister duo from the 1970’s had chosen South Florida, they might have found plenty of things to do on a rainy day, but they wouldn’t have had that Billboard Top 100 record and their fourth gold single!   

If you’re not familiar with the duo The Carpenters, they were in great demand in the 1970’s.  Richard and Karen created a soft musical style that made them top selling artists when most contemporary music was hard hitting rock and roll.   They recorded 11 albums and television specials.
