Never Forget



I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
and to the republic for which it stands,
one nation under God,
indivisible,
with liberty,
and justice for all.

Always Remember.

Stay well everyone.

That second picture with the lights signifying where the towers once stood is a powerful shot. The Statue of Liberty in the foreground and it's significance makes it all the more powerful.

Kay said...

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone whose lives were touched by the events of 9/11 and those that followed...we will never forget. <3

PL said...

Rose,

Very appropriate for today. Time to reflect on what is important and not some stupid fan rivalry.

I hope we can achieve world peace and acceptance in my lifetime.

Sydney said...

I've never been more proud to be an American than on this day ten years ago and in the days and weeks that followed. The stories of bravery and heroism that came out of this tragedy is what stays with me the most.

I just watched a short film narrated by Tom Hanks which told the stories of all the sea captains who came to the rescue. Hundreds of boats flocked to lower Manhattan to help with the evacuation of half a million people. This is the first time I've even heard about that.

My thoughts and prayers for all who lost on this day.. And my thanks to all those who stepped up to help. God Bless.

Thanks for doing this post Rose.

Hi Rose,

My heart goes out to all who were affected by this tragedy. May all of those who lost their lives rest in peace. You will be remembered.

Love to all

Very appropriate & touching pix.

I actually flew home from NYC on 9/10/01, I was there for a concert. I almost stayed longer & would have flown home on 9/11 but decided not too. Thank God.
I have a beautiful pic I took of the WTC Towers that day though, the tops were in the clouds.

Everyone, American or not was effected that day, in many ways.

Hello to all the regulars, hope u are well & safe!

dottie said...

Thank you for this lovely tribute, Rose. It's hard to believe that it has been 10 yrs.

Love & peace to all my Roseland friends.

In Memory Of All Lost Loves

My Heart Will Go On (Titanic Theme)

Celine Dion:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHyJTpDFgc8

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on

Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never go till we're one

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

You're here, there's nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on

We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Thank you/Asuturias

Beautifully done....

One can't forget that fateful day in American history.

My thoughts go out to every single person who was has suffered because of this horrific event.

Especially to the 2,977 families that lost their entire world that day.

We stand united in remembrance no matter what area of the world we call home.

Birdie said...

Lovely tributes Rose and all you compassionate Roselanders!
Through this tragedy we all came together to mourn the senseless loss of many Americans. May this be a reminder that what makes us a great nation is our ability to unite. We could use a bit more of that these days.

Fiorels said...

Thanks Rose...
I think anyone who has a soul and a heart will never forget...
Reading, seeing images, hearing things.. would never make it so real and painful like living it...
But today, for at least one second, millions on minds were on the same thing... Hoping it won't happen again... ever.

Bless you all.

beaculen said...

Thank you Rose, absolutely perfect!

Remember When It Rained

Josh Groban:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfxqW9QwOSI

Wash away the thoughts inside
That keep my mind away from you
No more love and no more pride
And thoughts are all I have to do

Ohhh, remember when it rained
Felt the ground and looked up high
And called your name.
Ohhh, remember when it rained
In the darkness I remain

Tears of hope run down my skin
Tears for you that will not dry
They magnify the one within
And let the outside slowly die

Ohhh, remember when it rained
I felt the ground and looked up high
And called your name

Ohhhhhh, remember when it rained
In the water I remain
Running down
Running down

Thank you/Dude87Fiorenzuola

Good Evening!

Still reflecting and choosing some songs that do, too.

Have a restful night and a brand new day is coming soon.

Freedom Is Ours

Feeling Good

Muse:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv5AzMikiLE

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel

Breeze driftin' on by
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me..
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel

Blossom in the trees
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me...
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun
You know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all out having fun
You know what I mean

Sleep in peace
When, the this day is done
And this old world
Is a new world
And a bold world
For me...

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Yeah, freedom is mine

When you know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me...

Yeah, ooh
Oh, ooh...

Oooh, ooh..free, free loving you...
Oooh, oooh
Feeling good

Thank you/TaperJeanGirl95

Beautiful Flower

India Arie:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zbn7Khv8zM

This is a song for every girl who's
Ever been through something she
Thought she couldn't make it through

I sing these words because
I was that girl too
Wanting something better than this
But who do I turn to

Now we're moving from the darkness
Into the light
This is the defining moment
Of our lives

'Cause you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world
With your mind

There is nothing in the world
That you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautiful

Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

This is a song for every girl who
Feels like she is not special
'Cause she don't look like
A supermodel Coke bottle

The next time the radio tells you
To shake your moneymaker
Shake your head and tell them
Tell them you're a leader

Now we're moving from the darkness
Into the light
This is the defining moment
Of our lives

'Cause you're beautiful
Like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world
That you cannot do
When you believe in you
Who are beautiful

Yeah, you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

Yeah, you, this song is for you
Yeah, you, yeah, you

Thank you/knewways

Red On Some (Rob)= Unforgettable

Yes It Is

The Beatles:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-O-wmVqFD4w

If you wear red tonight
Remember what I said tonight
For red is the colour that my baby wore
And what is more, it's true
Yes it is

Scarlet were the clothes she wore
Everybody knows I've sure
I would remember all the things we planned
Understand, it's true
Yes it is, it's true
Yes it is

I could be happy with you by my side
If I could forget her, but it's my pride
Yes it is, yes it is
Oh, yes it is, yeah

Please don't wear red tonight
This is what I said tonight
For red is the colour that will make me blue
In spite of you, it's true

Yes it is, it's true
Yes it is
Yes it is, it's true

Thank you/liveontheclassics

What The World Needs Now

Jackie DeShannon-1965:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMS2uMUQNnQ

What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love,
It's the only thing that there's Just too little of.

What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to climb,

There are oceans and rivers enough to cross,
Enough to last 'til the end of time.

What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love,
It's the only thing that there's Just too little of.

What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone.

What the world needs now,
Is love, sweet love.

Twilight Time

The Platters-1958:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZpwRCw_wJI

Heavenly shades of night
Are falling
It's twilight time

Out of the mist
Your voice is calling
Tis twilight time

When purple-colored curtains
Mark the end of day
I'll hear you, my dear
At twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor
As day is done
Fingers of night will soon
Surrender the setting sun

I count the moments darling
Till you're here with me
Together at last
At twilight time

Here, in the afterglow of day
We keep our rendezvous
Beneath the blue

And, in the same and sweet old way
I fall in love again
As I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss
Will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love
That fills me with dreams untold

Each day I pray for evening
Just to be with you
Together at last
At twilight time

Together at last
At twilight time

Thank you/Nocaro

DreamerKind said...

Well, it's my twilight time, in more ways than one..

May be back later, or even later.

Fare thee well, all.

Have a great day Roseland!

Hi BIRDIE:)

Have a great day everybody!

DreamerKind said...

@Birdie & Super
Thanks for liking the songs!

My nest is feathered with lots of stuff, but bit by bit, I'm custom-making a new one. Old dogs can learn new tricks, tee hee.

Must say that margaritas and champagne are not the best mix, on the day after. See, living and learning.

Have a lovely Tuesday.

Regards to all!

Cheers for Smitty, Gruff & Syd, just because.

Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)

Alanis Morissette:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZQn7BWRDfY

When the little bluebird
Who has never said a word
Starts to sing Spring

When the little bluebell
At the bottom of the dell
Starts to ring
Ding dong, ding dong

When the little blue clerk
In the middle of his work
Starts a tune to the moon up above
It is nature that is all
Simply telling us to fall in love

But that’s why birds do it,
Bees do it,
Even educated fleas do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

In Spain the best upper sets do it,
Lithuanians and Letts do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it,
Not to mention the Finns,
Folks in Siam do it,
Think of Siamese twins.

Some Argentines without means do it,
People say in Boston even beans do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Romantic sponges they say do it,
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Cold Cape Cod clams ‘gainst their wish do it,
Even lazy jellyfish do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

I've heard that lizards and frogs do it
Layin' on a rock
They say that roosters do it
With a doodle and cock

Electric eels, I might add, do it,
Though it shocks ‘em I know,
Why ask if shads do it,
Waiter bring me shad roe.

In shallow shoals English soles do it,
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The dragonflies in the reeds do it,
Sentimental centipedes do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Mosquitoes, heaven forbid, do it,
So does every katydid do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The most refined ladybugs do it,
When a gentleman calls,
Moths in your rugs do it,
What’s the use of moth balls?

Locusts in trees do it,
Bees do it,
Even overeducated fleas do it,
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it,
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

I'm sure sometimes on the sly you do it
Maybe even you and I might do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Thank you/maxmanson

DreamerKind said...

Re: Let's Do It-a song by the ever witty Cole Porter; I posted the complete lyrics, but Alanis M. did not sing them all. FYI, just sayin'.

DreamerKind said...

Oh, and the "Lats" do it, but maybe even the "Letts" do, too. So silly today, way to go, you know.

Where are you, my homies?

olivia said...

Hi dear Roselanders,

Just watched it. Beautiful, emotional, sexy, suspenseful......this film will be monumental.

One can see that it was made with love, commitment and a sense of responsibility to convey as faithfully as possible a screen version of Bella and Edward's story that will be breathtaking and truly memorable.

So hard to wait, but it is getting closer.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Off to read.

Rhonda said...

Good evening, everyone!

ITA, the new trailer is an exciting glimpse of an excellent BD1, coming soon. Rob & Kristen just nail it, and everyone in the cast is stellar, as much as I can see of them right now.

Oh, happy days.

LOVE the new banner. Robert in red? How can ya go wrong?

Just watched the BD trailer and I am speechless....soooooo much to take in and absorb! Kristen really looks sick and pregnant! Rob as Edward looks so strong and husbandly.....can't wait for BD!!!

Claire said...

Now ladies, I would never try and put words into your mouths about how you yourselves are feeling.

But I've got a feeling that the gif below is how we are all feeling about Breaking Dawn.

*bit.ly/iDhd60*

Goodnight

I think I may have used the word 'feeling' one too many times in the previous post. PMSL
