September 10, 2016

Never forget

that for the second time in history

on September 11, 2001

the United States was attacked by cowards

911-1

2749 civilians
343 fire fighters
23 policemen

were murdered that day

911-4

We vowed to ‘never forget’

911-2

but 16 years later

we are still fighting

those that incited those murders.

    I hated those towers coming down. Still can’t bear to watch.

    Here’s an open question, for Americans to ponder. What did we do to make Al Qaida so mad?

      Dwight not sure if your question is a serious one. However, I think you might want to check the US involvement in the Middle East and Africa in the 30 years leading up to 9/11. The US alone was responsible for thousands of innocent deaths and when you start counting the dollars the US invested into foreign governments regimes and fighters the numbers would easily reach into the tens of thousands.
      However, there is always that question ” did Al Queda” do it? 9/11 made was the beginning of a huge financial blossom of the Elite around the world. There are serious questions that have never been answered.
      Irregardless, it is a sad day. Any day when thousands are killed is a sad day.

    “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”! As a country we really came together right after the attacks but given our extremely short attention spans and our need to always ‘move on to the next big thing’ we, as a culture, failed to learn so many lessons from this horrific day. Regarding Michael Fritz’s comment; since when is the murder of innocent civilians ever justified?? I’ve read all the apologist’s nonsense regarding US involvement in world politics – like so many other foreign countries are not similarly involved – but where the rubber meets the road a brutal attack aimed primarily at helpless civilians is inexcusable and the acts of soulless human beings! As to whether Al-Qaeda perpetrated the attack…c’mon, time to remove your tinfoil hat and stop drinking the Kool-Aid!

    It was surreal. I remember that day so clearly. I had a day off from work and turned on the radio. It was as if I couldn’t decipher the words being broadcast; but once they sunk in, I rushed downstairs and turned on the TV and sat and cried as I saw what was happening. I knew then our world would never be the same. :(

    It is hard to understand how people can do things that cruel. :( 911 is something that should never be repeated. On this day we should remember the families of the victims in our prayers, and give thanks for the heroic policemen and firefighters who sacrificed their lives for others. But most of all, pray for the future of our country.

    I remember the day well. I didn’t know what had happened when I got into my car to go to work. The local radio station had this news going on & I thought, “What the hell happened?”
    Everyone at work was glued to the tv & for the next several days no airport traffic was coming in or going out; only the sound of patrol planes could be heard.
    Guess we haven’t learned our lesson.
