RIP FReepers, We do not forget.

For those who joined post 9/11, I would ask you to pause and reflect on the two FReepers we lost on that day.

John Moran FDNY, North Tower WTC, FReeper handle BCM

Here is his tribute thread.

Barbara K. Olson, conservative author, Flight 77 the Pentagon, FReeper Handle BKO.

Here is her tribute thread.

At least some measure of justice (cough-vengeance-cough) has been had.

We must “never” forget. It infuriates me that so many of the American people have, obviously, chosen to forget the horrific attack on 9/11 and pretend that the attack did not happen. An example, IMO, would be the lunacy surrounding building a mosque near Ground Zero. Who in their right mind would overlook such an outrageous insult against the American people??

I can close my eyes and still see people jumping from the WTC. How can anyone in this country ever forget? Apparently, some have.

Barbara was a truly wonderful person. We were regular email correspondents. At the time, I was living in Chappaqua, right next door to the Clintons, and I would regularly post threads on FR..”Report from Chappaqua” She enjoyed them, and Freepmailed me, and we became friends. In 2001, her latest ( and, sadly, last book) on Hillary had just come out, and we we working on trying to get her an “author’s night” at the Chappaqua Public Library in the fall..it would have been a sensation....the library board was opposed to the idea, but I was in there plugging away..Barbara was realling looking forward to it....we’d talked about finally meeting in person the next time she was going to be in NYC..and then sadly...that awful day.

Thanks Slim. It pains me to remember the old Free Republic, and how big the threads were. There was also a prominent air of respect from both of these great people. BKO especially, had many good discussions with her.

Rest in peace, now that this great evil has been removed.

I started reading her shortly after 9/11 but did not join until much later. I knew about Barbara but did not know of the other. I’m not sure but I did work on a quilt after 9/11 that went to a NYFD family and that photo looks an awful lot like the man who it was made for. Wouldn’t that be something if it was?

You have wonderful, bitter sweet memories. Her death was tragic, sad and horrific. Her death brought it home to a lot of us who didn't know anybody else who was murdered that day.

I'm happy that monster was killed up close and personal by our Navy Seals. Happy he knew who *got him*.

May God Bless and Keep You, my dear FRiend.

Lest we forget.

Bin Ladin’s death is no consolation to my friends wife
for the lose of her 23 year old daughter killed at
the Shanksville crash.

The account is long overdue and the vig continues
to grow.

IT is said ....the bodies of the innocent 9/11 victims fell from Towers in torrents....yet no footage was released of this ghastly atrocity so that Americans could witness what was done to us.....that is almost criminal in itself.....how sick is it that these pour souls cannot be properly mourned..
