Was Rick Rescorla a FReeper? Certainly at heart he was. He saved many, many lives on 9/11. May he Rest In Peace and our prayers are with his and all of the loved ones who lost someone that day.

Good question. We have a lot of tribute threads mentioning him with the victims, but I’ll look and see if he was a FReeper. If so, I’ll see if the mods can append the original post.

I don't care if I get banned at this point.

I pray for our troops in harms way.
I pray for our country and the assault from within that it is going through.
I pray that we as a nation find our soul, which has been lost, before it is too late.
I pray that we find everyone of the raghead son of a bitches that wish us death and kill them, their wives, their children, and burn their homes to glass.

If you want to be terrorists, we can show you what that means, from the side you wish on us.

Damn you all to hell.

I'm sorry to vent in this fashion. This day brings back horrible memories and an anger that will never subside.
My grandmother, as I found out later in life, had a prejudice against the Japanese and the Germans. One for killing her brother in the Far East, and one for killing my grandfather in Europe. I could never understand that until September 11, 2001.

Please forgive my outburst, I am seething with a renewed anger from watching past coverage of that terrible day, and reliving the memories that go along with the following days of friends who were lost in the Towers.

I never forget. Ever.

Doesn’t bother me. But then, I’m always a hot-head.

On 9/11 my 1st reaction was anger (and I didn’t know anything until an hour later+). I was scowling and cussing while the other women there at the 1st TV I could check were crying. This was no mere “act of God”.

I’m still scowling and cussing.

As I watched the images of 9/11/01 on TV this morning, all the memories of that terrible morning came flooding back. I can still remember the shock, horror, confusion and then the anger. I pray for the families of those who lost loved ones on that fateful day. This morning must have been agonizing for them. May the Lord of Peace comfort them.

And I. As I posted on another thread, there are times when I'll just be going about my daily life and suddenly will pop into my head, "They killed Barbie Olson!" And my hatred of Islam boils up in me as if it was 9/11/2001 all over again.

Poor Ted. He must miss her dreadfully.

RIP BKO!

Also seething because on my hour long drive to work today, only ONE residence and FOUR businesses had their flags flying at half-staff. Disgraceful.

Barbara Olson was "BKO" (her initials).

John Moran was "BCM" (for "Battalion Chief Moran").

I wasn’t a FReeper until 2007.

I still feel a kinship to FReepers that were murdered that day in 2001.

AND I want those responsible for that slaughter disposed of in a like or worse manner.

I was on a construction site in Buckeye, AZ on September 11, 2001. The consensus on the site was that we had to kill everyone responsible for the attacks ( I paraphrase in order to not have my post deleted ).

My opinion has not changed.

Unfortunately our “leadership” has.
