  • A Moment to Remember 11 Years Ago Today

    The thousands who were murdered 11 years ago today. The tens of thousands who were and continue to be killed or wounded making sure we are kept safe from further attacks. The millions whose lives were forever changed for the worse by the event and its aftermath.

    So many hurt by so few.....

    If stupid was a criminal offense Sea Lion believers would be doing life.

    Shouting out to Half Pint for bringing back the big mugs!

            RIP to all the victims of 9/11. RIP the victims of AA 11, AA 77, UA 175 and U 93. RIP those in the Towers and Pentagon. And RIP to the brave men of the NYPD and the NYFD.

            You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

              Had things worked out just a little differently that morning, I would have been driving past the Pentagon on I-395 just about the time that American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon. I had spoken to a Civil War Roundtable in Fredericksburg, VA on the night of September 10, and I was headed back home to Ohio on the morning of the 11th.

              It was a beautiful, crystal clear morning. I got up, got my breakfast, and sat by the cannons at Hazel Grove on the Chancellorsville battlefield to eat it that morning. I then got in the car and began heading north to head home. I had a meeting in Manassas that morning, or else I would have been driving past the Pentagon almost at the same time that the plane hit it.

              Instead, I was talking to Susan on the cell phone while driving when the first plane hit. By the time I got to my destination, two more had hit, including at the Pentagon. Then Flight 93 crashed and the Pennsylvania Turnpike was closed, meaning that I had to find an alternate route home.

              As a result, it took all day for me to get home. Not long after I crossed into Ohio and stopped at a rest stop, I looked up into the sky and saw the only planes up there--one large airliner and several fighter planes escorting it. It was Air Force One, and while I was no fan of George W. Bush, at that particular moment, I was never happier to see anything than I was to see that big symbol of America, escorted by those fighter jets.

              It was a long day driving alone and listening to events unfold, not knowing whether we were at war or whether there were going to be more attacks.

              May God bless the souls of those who lost their lives that day, including the dedicated first responders who sacrificed everything to try to help. And may God bless the souls of our fighting men and women who fight to protect the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans.

              Never forget. Never forgive.

                  It wasn't a good day for me either four am that morning UK time my Dad passed away as a result of liver cancer. My brothers and I got a couple of hours sleep then got on with getting my parents house straight as mum wanted all the hospital stuff returned and her front room back.

                  We had done an hour or so and then stopped for a cuppa and turned the tv on just to check if the world had carried on, as ours seemed to have stopped.

                  We were just intime to see the news flash that the first tower had been hit and found the remote for the sky box intime to see the second go in.

                  It's still a effing aweful day for me.

                    I could be wrong, but as far as I can remember, the weather on every 9/11here in NJ since the attack has been the same as 9/11/01. Just like today. A perfect day.

                    RIP Lt Robert Cirri PAPD.

                    This is his wife, Eileen Cirri. She was in my shop, Wayne Dodge, when the attacks occurred I was there when she got the call from her husband that he was on his way to one of the towers, leading a rescue effort. She watched her husband die, I witnessed that moment.

                    Never forget, never forgive.

                      And all these years later they continue to die.
                      There was a discussion on CNN this morning about the responders and workers around The Towers that are dying from cancer caused by exposure to the debris,

                        A sad day in our house, even 11 years on. My sister is still unable to see much on the subject without breaking down, so maybe the fact that NBC, CBS & ABC seem to be all but avoiding any real depth on the subject at the times that the disasters unfolded is a small blessing for her. (I can't say the same for myself) We can only continue to pray for all lost & missing their loved ones. Of course every loss was a horror no people should have endured. We especially want to remember them that selflessly ran into the unfolding horrors to save all they could while all others that were able were running out for their lives. The disasters could very easily have been much worse without such valiant people.

                        DARKPLACE, I know it is several years on for you, but I'm sorry for your loss, too, my friend.

                          Just got back home from the 9/11 remembrance ceremony today. Eleven years later and the pain is still the same.
                          After the attack on the twin towers, we watched in engine 7 house the towers collapse. Instantly we knew that we had lost a lot of our brothers.
                          Many in the military, especially in the platoon or squad size unit feel that their mates are family. I felt this while in Vietnam.
                          However, 35 years of service in the fire/rescue service has made me feel the same way but much stronger. I worked a command center in NY after they allowed the planes to fly again. There were many who wanted to travel with us from the west coast, everyone wanting to help, to pull our fallen brothers out of the pile. We packed our gear and headed out. I had just been promoted to Battalion Chief and I organized crews working on the pile. I will never forget when remains were found or how silent it would become when we thought we found someone alive. The silence was deafening.
                          Today, the weather is beautiful, just like that day in 2001. Sun is shining but the air is crisp - fall is coming on.
                          May all those who lost a love one find peace. May everyone who witnessed that day never forget.
                          May all those who answered the call to track these murders down find peace.

                          NEVER FORGET!

                            Nah, there's been some rainy ones, but today has been especially pleasant, even nicer than in 2001. It frankly gave me the willies this morning: the terrorists navigated from Boston's Logan Airport by flying due west and then hooking left at the Hudson River and following it 'til they saw the big buildings.

                            11 Sep 2001 confirmed in my mind the old saying, "every silver lining has a cloud."

                            Naturally, our politicos wasted no chance patting themselves on the back: Bloomberg, Christie, and Cuomo congratulated themselves for agreeing on a financial arrangement that will finish the WTC museum. Presidential contenders Obama and Romney very solemnly swore off campaigning today. And the hacks at the Port Authority just had to brag about their progress. To listen to all of them, some 2,000 people died eleven years ago today so that these assholes could remind us how indispensable they are.

                            It's only one tower -- and I'd rather have the two old ones back.

                              This happened when I was only 7 whilst celebrating my sisters birthday and still remember it vividly on a emergency broadcast by the BBC. Seeing the footage still has a great effect on me today.

                              R.I.P to everyone that suffered.
