Not a single 9/11 retrospective? (vanity)
vanity | 9/10

Posted on 09/10/2012 6:45:47 PM PDT by Ge0ffrey

Here it is, the 11th anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow, and there's not a single documentary, retrospective or reminder about that day on TV this evening. I live in NYC so tomorrow we'll have the memorial service and it'll be broadcast locally. Will it be broadcast nationally?

Why the silence? Because 10 years of mourning is enough, and now we're in year 11? Or does its absence from the airwaves have something to do with election?

Speculation: Obama will sneak into NY for 15 minutes and hug a couple of fireman for the camera. As part of his very brief speech...he will note "the sweetest sound"

How I loathe him...Never thought I'd have such feelings...

I must share something told me some years back.........one of the military chaplains that had volunteered his time at ground zero for MONTHS, was going home to see his family for a weekend before returning to ground zero....to be of help in whatever way he could, to both grieving families and rescuers.....some B*TCH sitting next to him on the flight actually said...”When are you going to get over it already!!!!” He was a man of God, and also had the discipline of a military officer...but he told me it was all he could do, not to smack her in the mouth!

NO, we will NEVER “get over it”!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fox Cable TV has been running a series on 9/11; Discovery; BBC; and a few others and this has been before Sept. 11th. Tomorrow will see many more.

9/11 has not been forgotten except by Obama and his gutless administration. Oh, maybe they will send out a nice statement and have a few photoOps taken, but in his heart, Obama agrees with Jeremiah Wright in that “America’s chickens have come home to roost” (i.e. Obama’s anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, marxist mindset - a gift from “his father, mother, grandfather, mentors (Frank Marshall Davis, David Axelrod, Quentin Young, CPUSA, etc).

The TLC Channel has some documentaries showing tonight, and the History Channel has some tomorrow evening. The Science channel has the series “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” on tomorrow starting at 5 p.m. eastern time. DestinationAmerica channel is showing documentaries during the day tomorrow. There may be others, but I didn’t search extensively.

Yesterday morning I went to take my dog for our usual morning walk. It was cool, just like that day...and perfectly clear, just like that day.

I started crying, for those lost and for thei families, wondering how the children were doing...and all the long days since then..and offered a prayer. I never left the house for the rest of the day. I downloaded “No Easy Day” and read it cover to cover. Finished just before midnight. And thanked God for the men and women who dedicated their lives to the services that finally got that unspeakable bastard.

There’s something on TLC right now.
Over the weekend, they had two days of documentaries on some new channel I hadn’t heard of but I tuned in to see The Falling Man, The Woman Who Wasn’t There and The Secrets of 9/11. So, there’s plenty of stuff if you look.

For the last three days, the cable channels have had an almost unending string of retrospectives.

You expect the lamestream media to do that?

Liberal media have deemed it “too controversial” and insulting of “Mooslim sensibilities”. Notice how the teacher strike is right at this time (and right before election time).

FRiend, I have to tell you for almost the last week, including tonight the National Geographic Channel and The Military Channel have been running 9/11 documentaries virtually non-stop. So has Fox. Some I can watch for only a few minutes. It makes too sad and too angry. I'm not ashamed to say, in fact I'm proud to say I hate Islam and Muslims intensely.

They had specials on all day Sunday. We watched most of them. I can’t remember which station - History Channel or National Geographic, I believe. And our Quinn & Rose radio Morning Show on WPGB always has a powerful special every 9-11. I don’t imagine this year will be any different.

“Liberal media have deemed it “too controversial” and insulting of “Mooslim sensibilities”.”

We have no idea about how much Arab oil money is invested in our media but it appears that it’s more than enough to keep it under control. Also might explain the anti-Israel, anti-Christian and pro-LGBT bent of our media.

I have been watching Heroes from 9 11 and have been struck by something and it's really infuriating!! How people came together that day and the days after, helping each other through it all regardless of race, gender or religion. And it struck me how we ARE NOT a prejudiced people by large and 9 11
was such an example of that - from black helping white...poor helping rich..workers giving their lives for stockbrokers and lawyers, Arabs aiding Hasidic Jews... you name it and it happened that day. Makes me so mad that the democRats and obama are pushing the lie that we are a racist country and uncaring, etc. Not to mention how 9-11 did not bring this nation down, for sure economically..but in 3 = years obama has done more damage to this country than 9-11!! Far more than in the days right after 9-11 we thought would happen!! PRAY people!! An enemy within is so much more dangerous!!

2012 is an important year to remember 9/11 because our younger generations are the most in danger of forgetting what really happened.

Or worse, our younger generations are susceptible to getting a politically correct view of 9/11. Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a “day of national service” or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values.

Watch this moving tribute to the heroes of 9/11
composed by a man who lived through it:
(music by Enya)

http://www.frugalsites.net/911/attack/

It is the most viewed video of all,
and is now in the Smithsonian.

In addition to "BCM," Battalion Chief John Moran at the WTC, we also lost Freeper "BKO," Barbara K. Olson, author and wife of then Solicitor General of the United States Ted Olson, at the Pentagon attack.

Bump for the video.

Last year, lots of Junior High kids did history presentations on 9/11. Most did okay, but some went overboard on the “reasons” why they attacked us.

And Happy Birthday to me. Although now we celebrate on another day.

Sue,
I can tell you the story of one little boy affected by this horrific attack. His father was killed in one of the Tower collapses, and his mom who was pregnant with thier second son at the time, moved into our neighborhood to be close to her brother (ALL WONDERFUL PEOPLE).
“Joey” is friends with my son now, and a happy, well-adjusted teenager, who does VERY WELL in school, and has a great time playing with all the teen boys in the neighborhood!!
Thankfully, his mom had the means to secure all the necessary therapy and guidance to help young “Joey” adjust as best he could.
Like you I truly feel for the children, especially those without the means to get the help they desperately may need.
“Joey” is a GREAT young man and I’m certain his Dad is smiling down from Heaven, very proud that his family has been able to cope as well as they have.
Although I’m sure today is a God-Awful day for them :(

~Red
