9/11/01 as the media doesn't want you to see it (WARNING: Very graphic; not antiseptic)

Although the above is very graphic, in my opinion, we need to stop thinking of 9/11/01 (and the anthrax attacks) in antiseptic terms. What happened was beyond horrible. Innocent people — even some children — were forced to sit on airplanes that were used as missles to attack buildings. One Washington, DC, area 11-year-old boy was on the plane that crashed into the Pentagon. He was sitting on that plane in sheer terror — knowing his daddy worked at the Pentagon. Think of that. Think! In your mind's eye, put yourself — or your children — in that boy's place. That's what 9/11/01 was about. That's what we must never forget and never let happen again.

The lives of many thousands of people were shattered. The bodies of most of those who died were shredded in that maelstrom of concrete, steel, fire, and other debris. Hundreds of bodies fell from the upper floors and smashed into the street or onto roofs — and, in some cases, onto people on the ground.

The true story of these attacks is not found in the movie-like images on TV, which carefully avert our eyes from the real horror. It is found in the gallons of blood that ran on the streets of lower Manhattan, at the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, PA.

This was not a disaster. Not a catastrophe. Not an act of God. It was a willful, deliberate act of mass murder. The blame for what happened that day, and in the days and months following, lies squarely at the feet of the radical Islamist thugs who declared war on us. It also lies at the feet of the most criminally negligent president in United States history, William Clinton. Nowhere else.

Be a witness to the truth. NEVER FORGET. Leave forgiveness to the Lord, and don't let another Democrat back in the White House for many years to come.

Thanks Wolfstar.

We need to remember that it wasn't just concrete and steel that was destroyed on 9-11.

Thank you. I turned the TV off this morning when it became clear that the 9/11 memorial ceremonies were nothing but a staged backdrop to accompany the usual network talking head monolog against the President and our country. I avoided it the rest of the day. What you've posted is far more painful, but also far more appropriate.

Why are we not allowed to stand up and say THIS is what was done to us, THESE are the people who did it, and we did NOTHING to deserve it? Nothing to deserve it! Nothing!

Well said. And the sonner we replace mournful lamentations with righteous anger, the sooner we will muster enough national outrage to do what must be done to solve this problem. Nothing short of another attack will do the trick, otherwise.

NEVER FORGET.


NEVER AGAIN.


LET'S ROLL!


"Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated."

Fellow citizens, we'll meet violence with patient justice -- assured of the rightness of our cause, and confident of the victories to come.

I will not forget this wound to our country or those who inflicted it. I will not yield; I will not rest; I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people...

President George Walker Bush
September 20, 2001



As we remember September 11, 2001, we reaffirm the vows made in the earliest hours of our grief and anger. As liberty's home and defender, America will not tire, will not falter, and will not fail in fighting for the safety and security of the American people and a world free from terrorism. We will continue to bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to them. This Patriot Day, we hold steady to this task.

President George Walker Bush
September 11, 2003

All humanity is of one Author, and is one volume; when one dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated; God employs several translators; some pieces are translated by age, some by sickness, some by war, some by justice; but God’s hand is in every translation, and his hand shall bind up all our scattered leaves again for that library where every book shall lie open to one another.

-- JOHN DONNE (1572–1631)

Guide dogs never leave their charges, under any circumstances.

I've read of isolated cases where they will burn to death in a fire rather than get to safety.

After two years I found out this morning that my nine year old son still believed it was an accident. No, he's not a product of the public school system, he just was not able to accept the true cause of what happened two years ago. There was a video online set to the background music of Have You Forgotten. I showed him this and expected to see the falling bodies. But, I was even shocked to see a photo of one of the bloody dead. As his mom I feel horrible for not having screened it, but at the same time I also feel it was necessary for him to understand.
I just hope he doesn't have nightmares tonight.

Yes, that's why I included it. As far as I know, it's the only photo of Mr. Hingson and Roselle taken shortly after they got out of the buildings. In this one, it looks like they are walking on Church Street past St. Paul's Chapel.

Be a witness to the truth. NEVER FORGET. Leave forgiveness to the Lord,....

...and vengeance too.

However, the right of JUSTICE belongs to the USA and one part of justice is punishment.
Those who do not believe in the punishment of the guilty, do not believe in justice.

This is your son's world too. He has to deal with it as it is, not as we wish it to be.

I don't know how kids can get from Winnie-the-Pooh to dealing with terrorism, but they only have a few short years to make the transition...hopefully with kindness and hope intact, but with no great illusions that everyone in the world is kind or will repay your hope.

I think the main thing we have to do is realize that exposing our kids to a lot of fictional violence and gore is unhealthy, but hiding real and historical violence from them might make them too vulnerable to greater emotional damage, if they ever have to confront a bad guy and never thought about what they'd do if and when it's their turn to say "Let's Roll."

I'm 38 and I've been a victim of crime a few times, and I've seen a few people who were out of control. I don't think anyone gets through life unscathed...you can't keep the rose-colored glasses on, and I think nine is about the age where they need to start coming off. :-( We have to teach our kids more than "Don't talk to strangers" if we want them to be able to tell us if the PE teacher's substitute is molesting kids and threatening anyone who tells.

It all stinks.

Didn't mean for children to see this, but if you believe it was necessary for him to see it, then trust your judgement. You know your son. Perhaps, one day in the future, he will do something to help prevent another 9/11.

I strongly agree.

The media did a tremendous dis-service to our populace by not showing the images of death that were caused by these ilsamist fanatics. We should have seen (as many Asian and Europeans saw) the footage of the people who had jumped from their 80th floor windows in the WTC rather than face incineration in the 2,000 degree furnace that their offices had become, and heard the dull thud as their bodies slammed into the pavement below at 100 mph.

The connection between 9-11 and radical islam should have been drawn indelibly in the mind of each and every American to steel us for the battles to come. What the leftist, hate-America media has done is unforgivable.

Thank God for the internet and conservative talk radio for getting the truth out to the few, so that we can spread the truth.

Thank You, Wolfstar.

I cannot recall any national media sources ever mentioning the deaths of children on 9-11. Guess the elites had determined that the sheeple shouldn't be made too upset. It's bad for business, and we might become "intolerant".

I for one believe that had there been a lot less "tolerance" and a lot more "disccrimination" in the 1990's, we would not be mourning our losses of 9-11.
