    20 years ago, one of the most emotional and impressive things that I saw, was the spontaneous show of sorrow and support that I saw at the Alki Statue of LIberty…it was surrounded by people with flowers, memorials, cards, and signs, all dedicated to remembering the people killed by terrorists in New York, Arlington, and Shanksville PA.  I do hope that many West Seattleites will go to the statue today, perhaps leave some small remembrance, or flowers, and show that we have not forgotten these people, or those that have died since to protect us.  What we did as West Seattleites that day made me proud to be a West Seattleite, and even prouder to be an American.  Please, if you can, find a way to honor these people.
