Wordless (Almost) Wednesday ~ Windows on the World Matchbox

                       
New York World Trade Center, Windows on the World Matchbox. 
c. 1999 or earlier 

My mom (1933-2010) traveled frequently to New York for business and I recall her sharing with me that she had lunch at the World Trade Center. Mom used to collect matchbooks where ever she traveled to . . .  after she passed, I was going thru the basket of matchbooks, I found this very special treasure that I now have safely stored in an archival box.

We will forever remember that day and all those who lost their lives to the 9-11 terrorist attack and lives that have since been lost from the effects of that attack . . . never forget.
