"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

—Winston Churchill

And on NBC they are talking politics again. How quickly they have forgotten. Couldn't even get through the reading of names without talking politics.

The coverage right now on msnbc is wonderful.

They are showing the children of victims reading the names of those who died - they are so young, alot of them and so impressive and reverant. All of them read their own fathers name (or mothers too)

It's very moving to watch....

This is not self pity, it is a reminder of why our son & daughters are half a world away fighting a war. Anger does not begin to describe what I feel!

I've heard enough first-hand accounts to have a pretty good idea. My neighbor was supposed to be on the floor that first got hit. He was late so he decided to stop and smoke a cigarette across the street, then the plane hit... He was also there for the second hit (he hung around to see if he could help anyone, but all he saw were dead) after that he went home. He did a tour in Viet Nam and told me it was much worse that what he had experienced there.

might not belong here, but I feel like posting it anyway...wrote it a little while ago-

Evening in Arlington

as the last note waifs away,
and the wind dies down,
there is one solemn moment,
held forever between sorrow and hope,
surrounded by silence…

and our grief for those gone
becomes a brush-
we paint our pain onto this suspended canvas,
so we may see them once more,
before they fade forever into the evening mist…

before some sound stirs this field to eternal flight-
still we might remember-
“as we go, this we know, God is near…”

Mark E. Harden

The Dems must be more out of touch than we ever knew. People I talk to haven't forgotten and never will and are, for the most part, more angry today than two years ago.

Our shock has worn off and we've gotten more determined.

My biggest disappointment is clearing the hard drive on my satellite receiver to tape all the memorial and remembrance programs which would air today.

NOT!

Are we the only ones who remember?
Is America so wussified that 911 "never happened"?

I just got into the office here in NYC and had a voicemail message waiting for me. It was a soldier stationed at Fort Bragg who randomly dialed a NYC number wanting to connect with someone in the city to offer his thoughts and prayers. I can't tell you how touched I am right now. He just made my day.

Done! I want to watch FOXnews, but CNN is showing all the children reading the names without interrupting them to air arguments we can hear ANY day.

I have been watching my tapes of the day since last night...

I thought I was "wasting tape" those first few days.
I am so glad I have all 8 of them. 48 hours worth.

All our domestic networks seem to have lost theirs...

In W.W.II the generals made reporters walk through the death camps to prove that they were there.

They KNEW later on in history people would come and try to say the Holocaust didn't happen.

As with the Death camps 9-11 must never be forgotten, years from now I will have to explain to a young child why I have an American flag Tattooed on my arm w/ the date 9-11-01 tearing a hole through it, because I will never forget.

What's even more disgusting than that quote was Katie Couric interviewing Hillary this morning and questioning whether or not the administration should have warned NY citizens about the air quality/pollution at ground zero. She was practically begging Hillary to blame the administration. THIS on a day of rememberance...

These pictures on Fox bring it all back. They are forgiven (almost) for talking through the moments of silence. They seem to be the only people willing to show extended footage of that day.

Just came back from a koran burning ceremony I improvised.  It was a nice way to vent some of the rage I still feel.  My only regret was that I couldn't find a mosque to do it in front of.  Mitigating factor is that there aren't any mosques around here.

I'm watching Fox right now - they are showing clips entitled "Remember 9/11" - and it is all coming back. I'm sitting here at home, all by myelf - husband is out of town and 1 son is away at college (he left for his freshman year of college just a few days before 9/11 - 2 years ago) and my other 2 sons are in classes.) I am just sitting here crying my eyes out--all the emotions are coming back. ...and seeing President Bush's face - as they showed the clip of him being told - is just unbelieveable. It's all coming back again. Tears are flowing ...

Never Forget, and just as importantly,

NEVER FORGIVE

It wasn't a "tragedy" it was an ATROCITY.

Crying can be healing. I've cried this morning, too. But my primary feeling is one of anger, intense burning anger.
