We had a blessed evening last night. Thanks to all who came and prayed for the memorial service of the 18th anniversary of 9/11, followed by patriotic concert and potluck. Music was by “Prayer Arise,” the Mon Valley Men’s choir, organized and directed by Rdr Peter Merella, Choir master at Holy Resurrection Orthodox Church in Belle Vernon.
Prayer for the dead is an important part of the communion of believers in the Orthodox faith, as well as a witness to the world of our hope in the Resurrection.
Em setembro de 1997 a Porsche revolucionou o seu modelo mais emblemático, o 911. O lançamento foi no salão de Frankfurt, e lá que o modelo completamente novo chegou, algo inédito desde 1964
Até o 993, era apenas uma evolução, baseada no 911 original, porém o 996 tinha plataforma inédita, além dos polêmicos faróis "ovos fritos", abandonando os miticos farois redondos (de volta no 997)
Os entusiastas da marca reclamaram sim -e muito- dos faróis, mas não foi 1% da quantidade de reclamação da mudança do arrefecimento do motor, o 993 foi o último arrefecido à ar, o 996 iniciou a onda 'watercooled' dos 911. Essa mudança foi necessária, os níveis de potência aumentavam e o arrefecimento a ar já não dava mais conta do recado. Além de que a Porsche precisava aterrissar no século XXI.
Essa geração só foi possível graças ao Boxster, que dividia plataforma, faróis e outras coisas com o 996, logo compartilhavam desenvolvimento, reduzindo custos. Os motores do Boxster eram 2.5, 2.7 e 3.2 e pro 911 foi modificado pra 3.4 e 3.6L. Todos flat-6, claro. Mais um motivo pra insatisfação dos clientes, os carro eram muito parecidos, quem queria ter um 911 confundido com um Boxster?
Mas aí a era das trevas da Porsche passou e em 2002 os 996 chegaram com o facelift, diferenciando-o do Boxster e sinalizando um retorno aos faróis circulares, as versões Turbo, Turbo S, GT3 foram lançadas, finalmente os Porscheists estavam gostando do carro
I love reading poetry (I write it too occasionally , will share with you guys some day). My notes section on my Facebook contains my favourite poems. However since its not public, I share my favourite poems as blog posts.
I feel poetry is easily able to express those feelings and emotions which cannot be put into normal words. A Moment of Silence by Emmanuel Ortiz is one such poem. It is based on the September 9/11 attacks and since this month marks the eighteenth anniversary of the tragedy, I feel it is an apt time to share it.
I love this poem because it raises the question that if you want to mourn and grieve the 9/11 victims, please do so. But during this grieving, do not forget all other people around the world that are also being deprived of their basic human rights. Selective mourning is no use, instead we should be mourning the loss of humanity from this world.
The twin towers attacks led to wars and invasions that continue to this day. Millions lost their lives, their loved ones and had to flee their countries. But the one thing differentatiing the war and invasion victims from the vcitims of the actual attack is that the “Twin Tower” effectees of this horrible tragedy were given complete media attention and support. However there are millions of others in several parts of the world who are also being deprived of their rights, being maimed and killed being made homeless yet there is no voice and representation for them and nothing expresses this more beautifully than this poem.
This poem was released on the first anniversary of the attacks and is a bit controversial. Read on (link in bio) and let me know how you find it.

Kind of surreal to think about it was 18 years ago! 👉🏻246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights ✈️ 2,606 people went to sleep 💤 in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters 🔥 went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police👮♀️ officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 👉🏻8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. 😟 None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept 11, 2001. 👉🏻In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for GRANTED. - Bishop Fire Department
Today, on September 11th, we honor the value of life, our country’s resilience, and the strength of the American spirit. 🇺🇸
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
~ Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.
“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.”
~ Former President Barack Obama
“My older brother John lived [his life] in Technicolor. When he walked in the door, the whole house lit up. And I’m sure heaven lit up when he got there too.”

I’ll #neverforget where I️ was and what I️ felt as I️ learned about the devastating news of the twin towers. It’s hard to believe this was already 18 years ago. Every year I’m reminded of the strength, courage, and selflessness of the EMT’s, police officers, firefighters and civilians that risked, sacrificed or lost their lives on that day as well as the men and women who risked/gave their lives after 9/11 to defend our country. Thank you for allowing me to walk this great city today. I am grateful. I️ am proud to be American. #newyork#911memorial#nineeleven#weareresilient

"Abby, a female black Labrador, arrived at Ground Zero to help.
She was born as the only girl in a litter of seven, and she only weighed one pound (453 g) at birth. But by the time she was ten months old, Abby knew all the basic skills for becoming a Search Dog.
Alongside her human partner, Debra Tosch, they attained Basic Certification for disaster search from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (@fema). Three months later, they achieved Advanced Certification and became one of the top search duos in the country.
When Debra heard the news about the September 11 attacks, she knew they would be called into action. By then, the Plan for the Security Control of Air Traffic and Air Navigation Aids, or SCATANA plan, was already implemented. All U.S. air traffic was grounded, so Debra and Abby needed to rush to San Diego and board a military aircraft. They traveled with the San Diego Task Force, on their way to New York for their deployment.
When they arrived, the area where the Twin Towers once rose above the skyline was now an overwhelming chaos of twisted metal, concrete, and dust. But Abby didn't hesitate. Along with twelve other Search Dog Foundation (@searchdogfoundation) search teams, they would work tirelessly for 12-hour shifts. Abby was ready. She had a job to do.
Thank you." - Comrade (the human)
"Thank you, Debra. 👩🏼
Thank you, Abby. 🐕
We won't forget." - Sinatra

”On this day... 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.” #nyc#nineeleven#neverforget#lestweforget#twintowers#oneworldtradecenter
