Remembering 911 --- 7 Years Later





Image ……….. Image


On Thursday is the seventh Anniversary that our country was savagely attacked and the united hearts of our nation cried out in pain.. Here are a few pix that I chose out of the more than 1200 I have on file. Feel free to post your pix, your memories, where you were and what you were doing “that day” and perhaps how this has impacted your life.

WTC tribute ~ with Enya music

Anyone ever wonder what the lyrics are to Enya's "Only Time"
that is played in the background of some 9/11 memorials online,
such as in this excellent tribute(above) :


Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose, only time

Who can say why your heart sighs
As your love flies, only time
And who can say why your heart cries
When your love lies, only time

Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be in your heart
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your heart
Night keeps all your heart

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose
- Only time
And who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time

Who knows? Only time

THE STAIRWELL....

Image

You say you will never forget where you were when
you heard the news On September 11, 2001.
Neither will I.

I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room
with a man who called his wife to say 'Go od-Bye.' I
held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the
peace to say, 'Honey, I am not going to make it, but it
is OK..I am ready to go.'

I was with his wife when he called as she fed
breakfast to their children. I held her up as she
tried to understand his words and as she realized
he wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a
woman cried out to Me for help. 'I have been
knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!' I said.
'Of course I will show you the way home - only
believe in Me now.'

I was at the base of the building with the Priest
ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He
heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat,
with every prayer. I was with the crew as they
were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the
believers there, comforting and assuring them that their
faith has saved them.

I was in Texas , Virginia , California , Michigan , Afghanistan .
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew
every name - though not all know Me. Some met Me
for the first time on the 86th floor.

Some sought Me with their last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the
smoke and flames; 'Come to Me... this way... take
my hand.' Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.
But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You
may not know why, but I do. However, if you were
;there in that explosive moment in time, would you have
reached for Me?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey
for you . But someday your journey will end. And I
will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may
be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are
'ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Thank you Dolly. I have had 9/11 on my mind for days now. It truly never leaves but when its near, it seems so heart-breaking all over again. I was wondering if we were going to have a special anniversary thread tomorrow.

Loved your posts here and I give thanks that I can view these with no trouble. Guess I don’t realize how it would be to be on dial-up even though I was on it myself for a while but we soon forget how bad it can be. I wish everyone could have it as easy as I do in viewing. But wishing doesn’t make it happen.

Have a wonderful day, Dolly!

Thank you DollyCali,

We all must remember the cowardly attacks and the taking of thousands of innocent lives perpetrated on 9/11/01 by Islamic Terrorists. There is no need for an apology, as Keith Overbite suggested, for reminding the American people of who the enemy is and the danger we face; as well as reminding the rest of the world that as Americans we will fight back to protect our people and the tenets of freedom here and around the world..

Thanks DollyCali, I will go home now and put my flag out.

Yes...I had forgotten that tomorrow is the day.

Sept. 11, 2001, among other things, was one day when FreeRepublic was a big part of my memories. Stuck here in the office, there were virtually no other sites on the web available that had any information about what was happening.

The gang here was quick to understand what was going on, and how the world was changed.

Fr. Mychal F. Judge. He remains to this day the only 9/11 victim the media has shown to the American public.

And that’s only because they mistakenly thought he was gay.

Bastards.

I hear people sayin'. We Don't need this war.
I say there's some things worth fightin' for.
What about our freedom, and this piece of ground?
We didn't get to keep 'em by backin' down.
They say we don't realize the mess we're gettin' in
Before you start preachin' let me ask you this my friend.

Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire And her people blown away
Have you forgotten, when those towers fell
We had neighbors still inside goin through a livin hell
And you say we shouldn't worry bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

You took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it's too disturbin for you and me
It'll just breed anger is what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
Some say this country just out lookin' for a fight
Well after 9/11 man I'd have to say you're right.

Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away
Have you forgotten when those towers fell
We had neighbors still inside goin' through a livin' hell
And we vow to get the ones behind Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I've been there with the soldiers
Who've gone away to war
you can bet they remember just what they're fightin' for

Have you forgotten
All the people killed
Yes some went down like heroes
In that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten
About our Pentagon
All the loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don't you tell me not to worry 'bout Bin Laden

Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?!

I thought it was National Geographic Channel, but it might have been History.

The terrorists planning was painstaking, precise and yet, while viewing this, (in hindsight) one can see there were red flags that almost, but not quite, got connected.
