March 5, 2018 I found a new achievement on WordPress:
I’m very excited to be a blogger of 3 years this month.
Writer’s Treasure Chest has grown significantly in the past year.
over 5,500 comments
almost 80 guests
I’m so lucky to be part of the blogging world with all your help. Without guests, friends, followers, supporters and people encouraging me again and again this blogging adventure would not have been progressing at this pace and wouldn’t have been as successful as it is.
Tonight, when I opened ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ Dashboard I got wonderful news!
Twelve days before my blog’s ‘3rd Birthday’ I got my 1,000 followers which makes me very proud.
This milestone is once again an opportunity to say Thank You! Thank you to all my followers, to all people who read my posts regularly and the visitors who drop by occasionally. Thanks so much for all the re-blogs. Thank you for all your comments and thank you all for your help and your ongoing support.
Thanks to you my blogging adventure is that much fun. Thanks to you this part of my writing work is not only challenging but also a gift to me. I learned a lot, publishing all my posts. But without you, all this wouldn’t have been possible!
If I had not as many visitors and the progress on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest,’ my blogging life would not be what it is now.
September 11, 2001, the day of the worst terrorist attacks the U.S. had to face in its history. Annually we remember the victims and their families; we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
During the September 11 attacks in 2001, 2,996 people were killed and more than 6,000 others wounded. These immediate deaths included 265 on the four planes (including the 19 terrorists), 2,606 in the World Trade Center and the surrounding area, and 125 at the Pentagon. (Source: Wikipedia)
I think it’s important we don’t forget this day, the ones who suffered, the ones who had to fight with the loss, with despair, and with illness. It was a dark day – and still: ‘UNITED WE STAND.’ Americans proudly helped, supported, comforted and still remember. It is important we never forget how to STAND UNITED!
Today, September 11, 2017, I would like to remember the ones who helped, the ones who were there, risking their lives for others, and in far too many cases, paid the highest price in the line of duty!
Many more, exposed to toxic dust and other hazards, have succumbed to illnesses related to their rescue and recovery efforts over the years. On Thursday, September 7, 2017, the FDNY added 32 more names to the World Trade Center Memorial Wall.
