thanks for pinging the list later Eleanor.

Jonny, your pictures are awesome

& I will be pinging my personal list when I get home. Perhaps you could share a little about the work you did and some of the comments you sent to me? and ping your friends.. anyone can visit at the singles thread (as long as they are nice!)

Lotsa formatting problems & NO TIME to fix.. so we have a little less than I had planned on & NOT as "pretty".

will be back after the football game...not sure if we will win, but VERY sure our band will be better!

My 911 experience was on the highway. I left at 9AM & when I turned on the radio & got Peter Jennings rather than Glenn Beck, well, I knew SOMETHING was up.

I was transfixed the entire way... fastest trip to NC I had ever made(seemingly)as I was immersed in the dialog, the fear, the sadness and the prospect of "what now"..

When I got to my son's house I ran to the TV, which GD was watching cartoon movies.. commandeered the TV & just sat in shock to see all the horrific scenes.

I guess my overall sadness was a bit tempered by the fact that we lost less than 3000 people. A VERY large number to be sure, but there were over 50,000 people in the WTC.. how much worse it could have been.

God bless those who died that day & the family & friends who remain.

Nice artwork. Very well done.

I was working in Boston, in the shadow of the Prudential Center. My crew was scared. There were fighter jets all over the skies. We left well before noon.

It was probably the most perfect day weatherwise I had ever seen. I went home and watched Fox & CNN on my deck with a bunch of neighbors and we drank a lot of beer.

My 11th September 2001 memory was that I was at work and suddenly the MD's personally secretary came running down to us and advised the first plane had hit.

Then shortly after the second she was the only one at the time who had the Internet on her computer so she kept us advised on going events etc.

Our American partner who incidentally Dolly is from Ohio finally got through on the phone to us late afternoon our time and I remember him saying there was an aircraft under suspicion at Cleveland Airport. This of course was later found to be OK but it was sort of scary at the time as you did not know where or if there would be more attacks and how much scary for all of you it must have been.

Under fortunately many do seem to have forgotten and no longer view the enemy as fanatics who want to destroy all we stand for and hold dear.

Of course, ANYone could be a FReeper. We already know Ann Coulter is, and I've heard that Buchanan is, too (one of the paleos on the site I guess...so that narrows it down to 2 or 3 suspects).

Buchanan moved past paleo and into his own world of lunacy, but I won't bring politics on here.

I have got to say that it is such a tough thing to remember on the anniversary and even in passing on any other day.

We lost "distant" family (second and third cousins on both mom & dad's side) and even without meeting any of them, I know that I will always see them as heroes.

To this day, I still remember looking up between the two towers and feeling dwarfed beyond words. At that time, I had no idea that they were the two buildings from an early childhood vision of 9/11.

Prior to 9/11 I talked about the day of seeing what I saw in my mind and didn't realize that it was a "vision" until the morning of 9/11 and for a very long time I refused to speak of it for a good four years.

Now I realize that what I saw as a child was the very beginning of the visions that I have kept secret for so long and not just the fact that I "thought in pictures" as a child (which I did).

Under stress I do think in pictures and do get frustrated over the inability to communicate in any other language I know. But more than that, learning to deal with seeing things that can only be described as "modern day biblical" is hard for me, even now.

My heart goes out to all of the loved ones of the many that died that day. It also goes out to the many that were so lucky as to not be in either of the towers for whatever reason God chose to allow them to be spared.

My 9-11 experience was a bit more LIVE than most, as I had the misery of seeing it all take place on tv, big screen all DAY long.

At first, it was just a "plane had hit one of the WTC towers". it was not thought of as a terrorist action, YET. The Tv was on CNBC, as it usually was in the morning, as the owner of the shop I was at liked to keep up on business and stocks.

I turned on my TV on my bench a bit later, and just as it came up, I saw the SECOND plane hit the other tower. By now-- ALL of us in the shop realized that it was NOT an accident. However, some newscaster (I don't recall who) was still suggesting an accident, saying "is their something wrong with the air traffic control systems, or something?"

By then, ALL of the news was going live to the events. Soon after, the pentagon was hit, and I said"man, if this keeps up, they will have to shut down all air traffic in this country. Soon after, they did, and flight 93 crashed. It was hard to do any work that day. that night, I saw gas go from about 1.49 a gallon, to over 2.00 a gallon, and gas lines down the streets at many stations that had not yet changed prices. Many stations ran out of gas. Cops were out ALL over, ready to roust anyone that did ANYTHING remotely suspicious that night. In Dayton, Wright Pat was on Lockdown, and several fighters screamed out from there that day, and created sonic booms in the area. For the rest of the week, all planes were grounded, stocks were dead, baseball suspended. It was hard to really gather my thoughts together to work the next day. The news continued live for several days.

You are not the only one who had a vision of the terrorist attacks and such. Over a YEAR before it happened, I had a vision of my own.

I have spoken a bit about it here in the past, but I was so castigated and excoriated that I did not go into any more details of what I saw in my dream, but it WAS VERY prophetic!!

I am glad you can relate!

I am not sure if you have other prophetic episodes, but it has been very tough for me to handle.

In the end, I know that my favorite POTUS appreciates messages from me when he gets them.

I have had a NUMBER of them...

In 2003-- I was trying to get a job at CIrcuit city as a technician. In July-- I was told that, due to my schooling at the time, I was not going to work out there. I REALLY needed the job--too!!

On a friday in late August-- I helped a friend fix a Big screen for CC, that he was not able to do himself. It was a hot call, and this was relayed to the tech advisor. Still-- I had already been told I was not going to get a job there.

That night-- I had a dream that I had to go back to Louisville, for "orientation" for that job. This did NOT make any sense, as I had been there a month before, and since I was not going to get a job there, there was no need to go back down there. I figured it was all just "wishful thinking".

But that Monday after college, There was a message on my answering machine, from the service manager for CC. They had changed their mind, and i DID have a job, if I still wanted it. I needed to go "to Louisville, for orientation", --JUST LIKE IN THE DREAM DAYS BEFORE!!

Just a coincidence-- maybe.but MAYBE NOT!!

I didn't even hear about it having happened until about 9:30ish. I was a senior in high school at the time. I was leaving my first-period class (French), and when I got to my second period class (Enviro Science), I saw that a TV was on and some of the kids were gathered around it.

I remember that day pretty vividly. I can honestly say that the first emotion I felt when I learned what was happening was intense anger. I mean, I could feel my fists clenching involuntarily.

NOT coincidence!

I learned that a long time ago. At this time, Allison DuBois is my mostest favorite person after President Bush and I am adjusting to the visions and actually being allowed to talk about it.

If you look into CRV (controlled remote viewing) and the US army, you will find my most wonderful secret. My name is not mentioned in any documents anywhere and only a few people knew that is what I do/did, as I was not stationed or trained within the formal ranks. (The technical term is "black operations" and I was one of the few that could do it off the books so as to not violate federal laws and such. Hence, the goofy taglines that have advertized in more ways than one...)

I'm back.. what a day(week? month?)... had some domestic govt interference earlier in week & today had one van towed (fuel pump broke) and this evening my second "beater" van gave up the ghost & is also at the shop. Our foot ball team lost & the band & weather were good & now I am here.. so I guess the day is ending well, enough. will be pinging my list shortly..
