Remembering 9/11

A few days ago we visited the Waterford Crystal Factory to see the various stages involved in the making special Waterford pieces.

Perhaps everyone remembers the famous ball dropped in Times Square on New Years’ Eve, and the special sports trophies made by Waterford. Another piece at the factory caught my attention. At this time I want to share this one special piece.

Waterford Crystal - Dedicated to 9-11 Rescue Workers

The plaque below this poignant piece says, “This piece was made in remembrance of Fr. Mychal Judge, who was one of the 343 FDNY, 37 PAPD & 23 NYPD Officers who lost their lives on September 11th 2001 while trying to save others.” The final line says,

This piece is dedicated to all the Rescue Workers.

The tragic events of 9/11 should never be forgotten by Americans or any other peace loving peoples. We remember all, whether rescue workers or not, who lost their lives on that day.
