Ten years ago today America was changed forever. Our hearts were broken.
Terrorists came into our country and destroyed lives. They had no regard for the lives they took. They thought they would crush us....they thought it would make us weaker, but HATE never wins! It only made us STRONGER!
AMERICA will always stand TALL, stand PROUD......and AMERICA will always have HONOR!
Brave men and women went into those buildings to save lives.....to search for survivors. They didn't think about anything but saving others. True HEROES....Honestly, hero doesn't even begin to describe them.
There will never be a day that goes by that I don't remember what happened.
Unlike the terrorist, I will never let HATE consume my heart. I will treat others with LOVE, RESPECT, and KINDNESS.
Today let us remember those lives that were lost. Let us remember to always have LOVE , RESPECT, and KINDNESS in our hearts.
WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
They are FALLEN.....but NOT FORGOTTEN!
To make a 9-11 Remembrance cookie......
Make pentagon shaped cookies and let cool. I cut mine out by hand.
Next use a stencil to draw out the design on the cookie with a food marker. I use Wilton food writers
Then outline your cookie with black royal icing. I also outlined the white and blue parts (shown below)
Then I filled in the white areas, let dry about an hour. Then I did the red, blue and black. If your colors have bleeding issues wait until each color dries about an hour before filling in the next.
Then with a #2 tip outline around all areas with black royal icing. With a #2 tip write REMEMBER in white royal icing under the twin towers as shown below.
Hope you all enjoyed my ten days in memory of 9-11

I had a sticker on my car with this exact design for many many years. Eventually the sticker supply I had faded and ran out.ReplyDelete
It is now my profile pic on my FB page.

This is a really nice sentiment...but I have to admit, I would feel uncomfortable eating the twin towers!ReplyDelete
I only made the one and the cookie was uneaten. :)ReplyDelete
