Reading his first hand account of this day is very chilling. Check it out.
I’ve been following it all morning. Fantastic, gripping stuff.
Well, in fairness, the headline isn’t worded quite right. These appear to be Mr. Fleischer’s notes from thirteen years ago.
Presenting it like a historian.
Hahahahahahahaha! Hitch home, Jay, you're just extra baggage.
On this thirteenth anniversary of that terrible day, please keep us safe and bless all those innocent Americans who lost their lives on that day. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of Your Son that they may share in the joy of Your heavenly kingdom forever.
Click here for the fantastic, moving website memorial created by a survivor of 9/11, Steve Golding of New York City. It is the most viewed of all 9/11 memorials. It is now in the Smithsonian Museum. Music by Enya.
Or Try this one
There are many sites that carry this most famous of the 9/11 memorials, the Steve Golding memorial. After so many years some do not work. If neither site works, look up 'America attacked 9/11." It is well worth your time. It should be required viewing for every American. Be prepared for a good cry.
The second site carries a 'message' and a description of 'that day' in his own words from the creator of the website, Steve Golding, and reference to the Pentagon attack. Be sure to see them. Very powerful.
Steve, may God rest his soul, has since died from respiratory disease sustained on 9/11. God bless you, Steve- and thank you for leaving us this wonderful and moving memorial to the heroes of 9/11.
I was in an elevator 2 blocks away when the first plane hit. What we saw when we emerged was like a war zone. Unfathomable horror. It is still fresh, and I suppose it always will be. The only thing that kept me balanced was my newborn son.
No matter what people say about Bush and his people, they are sober adults, and handled themselves well that day. I can’t imagine the current bunch in DC dealing with something so dire.
Settling in on East Time Zone, everything okay. Keep me updated Central, Mountain and West, please.
What has America learned since then?
Here we are in the midst of the second term of a guy who hates America and all she stands for. Our own government is lawless from the NSA to the IRS from one border to the next.
We’ve learned nothing.
All quiet on the Western Front ... Praise God ... Today is Done!!! Taps.
I lost a very close friend that day, on flight 11 so yes, it’s all burned into my memory banks.
As I watched the tribute Bush said that the attack was on freedom, itself. It sure was, it gave us the patriot act and lost freedoms. Our freedoms weren’t, and aren’t defended.
He promised a jihad that was ineffective against our enemies. We have suffered many attacks since that fateful day.
I disagree that ‘’we’ve learned nothing’’. We’ve learned quite a lot, but the most important of all is that government can’t and shouldn’t be trusted. EVER.
Our founders knew that, but somewhere along the lines of our history, we the People, forgot it.
The question is, what can we, and should we do about it? And how?
We see the price of our lack of vigilance, and we are all counting the cost of freedom. None of us likes the cost.
I’m very sorry for your loss. What I meant is that a majority of voters voted in a POTUS who utterly rejected all that had happened between 9/11/01 and 2008. They did it again in 2012 with eyes open. We’ve learned nothing - bread and circuses - Obama will be gone and they’ll forget again.
Democracies as a habit drink from the Waters of Lethe.
