Echoes of 9-11

Echoes of 9-11

    Sorry, the echoes must have been canceled this year, and I and my family, must have missed the memo. You see, I thought we were a country at war against the terrorist and that as a nation, we were together in our outrage. Didn't I see that on TV?

There are no more echoes. The day that was to live in infamy died, I guess. On the eleventh of September, 2001,  for the first time I stood back and asked, "What can I do to help my country?" I knew I was just a thirteen year old kid, but I sought to find a way that I could make a difference- a rare thought in the rush of today's youth.

    Only 2 years past, and again we met the day that had been the most horrific since Pearl Harbor. A young man of fifteen now, I went to my upper middle class school and looked at the scene- this is what I saw...

    Had the school flag not been flown at half staff (which nobody noticed or understood), you would not have known that it was different than any other day. On my trip to school, I noticed no flags on anyone's porch... no banners, signs, or ribbons of any kind. No overt signs of patriotism. I was only a Thursday.

    I remember there being more emotion on Homecoming day than on the anniversary of 3000 innocent neighbors being incinerated. Although the administration suggested that the students wear red, white, and blue, few people did. Only in 2 out of my 7 classes was the day even briefly mentioned, and even then only in passing.  And among the students at lunchtime, I consciously listened to the conversations around me.

    Nothing. Not a word even remotely related the the day or it's meaning.

As for myself, I was frustrated that we didn't have the day off of school. I requested that my dad record the flashbacks, memorials, etc... It has been a constant source of conversation at our home (over dinner, the news) since July.

   I can't help thinking that my peers and the public at large are waiting to be told that it is now time to feel something, almost as if we need a daily laugh-track, or in the case of 9/11, a cry-track.

 What has happened to the outrage?

Extemporaneous notes to myself, on September 11, 2001,

by Matthew

I know that forty years from now, I will be rooting through an old box and will come across this paper. I’ll brush off the dust and will immediately remember the fateful day of September 11, 2001

 What a beautiful day it was. The sun's warmth mixed with a cool breeze gave the day the sensation of life. I sat on the bus and stared out into space. I had been to the Science Place Museum on field trips many times before. I was elated and cheerful when our school bus pulled into the parking lot. I didn't see many cars in the lot, but I didn't take that into consideration at the time. We walked in a herd across the street. A car nearly hit me because I jumped out into the street so quickly. I was wearing my beige shorts and my favorite blank-white T-shirt. Over that I wore an over shirt that was blue and yellow plaid.

I made my way up the steps and got into the single file line that had been formed. A man who worked at the Science Place counted us one by one. The main lobby was empty and the gift shop closed. We were early. It was pleasantly cool inside, and the room echoed our voices playfully. After being divided into two groups, the children were given instructions. The first group went to the dissection lab and my group stayed in the lobby and waited for the Imax theater to open. I wandered around the lobby floor and decided to join the kids who were playing with the lobby camera. Just when I joined the crowd, our instructor informed us that we were not allowed in a public place. I was baffled as we all formed a line to exit the lobby. I heard someone say in the background, “The World Trade Center and Pentagon had been attacked!” I laughed and shoved it off as a joke. I thought to myself that the real reason that we had to leave was that the museum was closed that day or that they didn't have enough pig hearts.

Then I heard another voice state “ They were assaulted!” Still not believing it totally, I exited the building. When I saw the other group standing at the bottom of the steps, I had to accept it… we no longer had a World Trade Center, and the Pentagon had been attacked.
 The thought stung me, and at the time, my mind had hardly accepted it. Just before we re-entered the bus, our science teacher, Mrs. Murphy, addressed us as a group. “Our country is in a state of emergency.

The World Trade Center towers were attacked, and the Pentagon was attacked, too. I do not know anything else right now, but if you are a religious person, praying is a good idea.” “How can this happen?” I kept asking myself. The question haunted me on the drive back to Gunter. Now the day didn't seem so beautiful anymore, but rather dark and mournful. Discussion on the bus consisted of the qualifications for draft, and who might have felt inclined to attack America.

The few students who had radios kept shouting news to those of us who didn't. “They were terrorists! They hijacked and crashed planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon!” These words teased our minds for the duration of the trip. The constant bouncing of the bus and the smell of fresh laid tar enveloped us as we pondered the future, near and far......

I'm sailing in the same boat as risk.
The outrage is alive and well. I had the privelege of listening to Col. Oliver North speak at a ceremony honoring first responders from our area.

The leftist liberals took the opportunity to protest Col. North as the selected speaker. They just don't get it, do they?

My family takes the day off from school and work and makes it a day that we enjoy family and friends who care to share the day with us. My American Flag, Texas Flags both fly every day............ I'll never forget the anger , hurt and fear for our nations fragile ability to defend itself from within that day.

I believe every man and womnan today should either embrace or support the ability to defend ones self with a simple handgun. For the want of half a dozen small revolvers on board those aircraft that day we'd most likely never been exposed to the horrific atrocity that day.

Spero che i vostri giorni siano Carlo facile........... Cassaforte Di Soggiorno!!

We didn't even have a flag to fly before 9/11/2001. We don't fly the flag every day, but we do fly it on the 11th of every month. (And of course the standard flag holidays.)

We figure a monthly flag day on every 11th of the month is a tradition that can last for generations.

Carlo - How proud you must be to have raised such a thoughtful Son! It shows the character of the father!

Matthew - there are many of us who still fly the Flag, mourn the 11th of Sept and are outraged - just not enough of us though. You make me proud of the younger generation and give me hope.

The funny (dark comedy) thing about the 9/11 news coverage this year, is that if George Bush wasn't President, the media would have pushed the story to the hilt. They refused to give the story the print and air time it deserved on the theory that it would have shown Bush's presidency in a favorable light. What a pathetic myopic lot! Imagine the crocdile tears that the Media would have shed, if Slick Willy were president.

The leftists get it. They pray for the destruction of the idea that is America. Their model is the Soviet Union.

Many of our scientists work against our superiority.

Madame Albright announced to the world that it was not good that America was the only superpower.

Don't think for a moment that they don't get it!!!!

Your son is a wonderful, caring, empathetic young man of whom I know you are very proud. The following is for him:

Dear Matthew,

The outrage is still there, Matthew, but we are not "allowed" to show it any more. You see, when we were all taken by shock and let our bare emotions out in the open for all to see, it was acceptable to feel that way. No one had time to organize an attempt to squelch the raw emotion that came tumbling out. Two years later, the left-biased media and the ACLU-driven PC police have taken over our lives in an attempt to make us cookie-cutter people - all with the same beliefs and the same emotions.

They think they are succeeding, but they are not. There are still enough of us that are as enraged and as saddened and as determined as the day the terror attack took place. We will not be silenced. We will still grieve even though we are told we must put the past behind us move on. We will still express our anger and outrage against the terrorists, even though we are told we are bigots. We will still support our president as he fights against terrorism even though we are laughed at and scorned.

You see, Matthew, we are the "silent majority." We don't howl on TV, toss out epithets and lies and smugly sit back as the mindless sheeple hungrily devour everything we say. Those people are a minority, but they make the loudest noises and get the most publicity.

We, the righteous ones, choose to educate and express our views quietly and deliberately. We confer with God, not with our adoring fans, when we need guidance and security. We place our trust, silently and with faith, in those that are trying desperately to bring the US back to a God-loving and moral country.

We are the ones who have not forgotten - not for one minute of every waking hour - what happened on Sept. 11, 2001. We're here, Matthew, and our numbers and strength are legion. We just don't feel the need to stoop to the lowest depths to get our message across - just like those on the left have done.

And, you know what? We will prevail in the end. Yes, "it's the squeaky wheel that gets the most attention." It's also the one that usually ends up failing and falling off first.

God bless you, Matthew, and may you always have the wisdom and faith that you possess now. Do not let the buzzards get you down.

Hugs,
dansangel

(((((((Matthew))))))) and (((((((Carlo)))))))

My flag has not come down since 9/12/2001, I light it every night. Ours is the only one left in the area that I can see. I also am one of the few that have a flag sticker on the back window of my auto - where did they all go?

I will never forget what I saw that day, and upon my arrival in lower Manhattan that night. I'll never forget the horrible feeling, or the gray dust on my clothing from the ashes of the 2800 people incinerated in those Towers. I'll never let anyone around me forget it either. When I hear someone criticize this President the rage comes right back and they get me full blast. Thank God for the courage of the FDNY and NYPD, and Thank God for giving us a President with the gumption to fight back. Thank God for our Military, and pray for them, support them in any way possible, and remind anyone who'll listen that the USA didn't start this war, but we damn sure better finish it.

I thought we were a country at war against the terrorist and that as a nation, we were together in our outrage.

Matthew, we still are. We are a country of pride, deep feeling, and personal pain. A pain that has in some ways not gone away since Pearl Harbor. We are not always obvious and in your face but do not dispair, we as a country of patriotic people will prevail in the end. If you listen closely you will hear a slight rumbling of anger toward the politically correct outspoken left. We are close to the end of our patience they will find that they might be the outspoken but they are not the majority.

Matthew,don't ever give up your ideals. At times it will be hard and you will think that you are standing alone in what you believe but there are many more that feel as you do and they have not given up. Yes there were not as many flags as there should have been, but ther were thousands more than there have been in the past.

Here in Georgia in a public park there were 3,000! 5 foot flags flying that weekend. Didn't make that national news but they were there and thousands of people came to see them. This, Matthew is multiplied a hundredfold all over the country. We are not in your face with what not to do but we are behind you with what should be done. Just take the time to listen and you will hear us, as will the rest of the country and the world..

Where's the outrage?

I wonder.
I wondered where the outrage was in February 26, 1993 and the Islamic terrorist bombing of New York's World Trade Center which was meant to topple the city's tallest tower onto its twin, amid a cloud of cyanide gas. Had the attack gone as planned, tens of thousands of Americans would have died.

http://www.fas.org/irp/world/iraq/956-tni.htm

Clueless people.

On October 23, 1983, 243 U.S. Marines were murdered in a cowardly truck bomb attack, ending their mission to help establish peace for the people of Lebanon.

Where is the outrage?

911 was nothing new except that more people died.

On October 12, 2000, terrorist in a boat attacked the USS Cole in the harbor at Aden, Yemen. This attack killed 17 sailors and wounded over 30 others.

Where is the outrage?

The American people collectively have an attention span of a five year old.

BTW, we've been at war with Islam since at least 1968.

Where has the outrage been?

What has happened to the outrage?

It's still there and will never be forgotten.

Unforunately some have gotten to caught up in their own lives and rely on others to remember for them. Others just don't know how to honor those who gave their all because they were never taught to show proper respect.

The good news is that those that have forgotten are in the minority and we in the majority will not let them forgot what happen that awful day in September just like my parents taught me to never forget that awful day in December

We will stand proudly by our flag with our hand on our hearts and pray for all those that were lost and all those that continue to bravely defend our freedoms, our liberties and our lives.

Have faith Matthew, for without faith, what else is left?

We will never forget and We will never give up!

My frustration with the media knows no bounds. Just two years ago, the mainland of our nation was attacked by a foreign source for the first time since the War of 1812. We lost over 3,000 of our citizens, countless billions of dollars, and many thousands of children lost at least one parent. In addition, Congress AND MEDIA BIG SHOTS were attacked by the anthrax letters.

Yet here we are, just two years later, and what is the media obsessing about? A phony "who's the leaker" story, that's what. Never mind that the entire media house of cards would come tumbling down if it weren't for anonymous sources and leaks — real or invented. If they can bring down this president, they will, and what's best for the country be damned.

While what I'm about to write comes from frustration, and is not to be taken literally, I must confess there is a dark part of me that almost wishes the anthrax mailer(s) had taken out a bunch of media hot shots instead of postal workers.

Somehow, this thread and this just received email . . . seem suited for each other.

Sent: Monday, September 29, 2003 10:43 AM Subject: Re: [AP List] THREE OF HIS GENERALS HOME

Hey Meri,

That is interesting about these three brothers dieing at this time. I believe there is also a birthing going on.

My son Stephen and I just got back from Morning Star's Harvest Fest 2003 conference where we set up a ministry booth for the feast of trumpets. I sold over 35 shofars and ministered to many about the release of women in ministry. I also was able to tell a few folks
about "The wonder of 9-11."

Steve Thompson spoke about seeing 9-11 over and over, so I made sure he got a copy of my article below which I addressed to Rick Joyner and Robin McMillan as well for their discernment.

Blessings,
Paul

The Wonder of September 11th

www.pauljab.net/Sept11-Sign.html

by Paul Jablonowski 9/11/2003

"Here am I and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells in Mount Zion." Isaiah 8:18, Hebrews 2:13

Pictured to the left is my son Stephen who was born September 11th 1999. The tragic events which occurred in America two years ago today on September 11th 2001 was a sign from hell of just how desperate the kingdom of darkness is trying to keep control of the earth. On the
other hand, the events of September 11th 1999, four years ago, was a sign from heaven that God's plans to rule the earth are indeed right on schedule. You can be sure that what God has promised in destroying Satan He will certainly fulfill.

While most people are familiar with the September 11th 2001 events, not very many know about the sign from God that occurred on September 11th 1999. On this day there were signs in the stars that were very similar to the sign described in the book of Revelation chapter 12.

This passage of scripture talks about a pregnant woman who is clothed with the sun and giving birth to a male-child who will rule the earth with a rod of iron. The dragon then tries to devour her child but is unsuccessful (Rev. 12:1-5). This exact scenario was played out in the stars on September 11th 1999 when the constellation Virgo, which was just below the horizon (clothed with the sun), gave birth to the moon (male child) at the same time that the constellation Draco (dragon) stood at the feet of Virgo.

The details of this very rare celestial event and its similarities to the "star" of Jesus' birth can be seen
at the web-page

pauljab.net/Rev12-Sign.html.

Revelation 12:1-5 (with my comments in parentheses) - "A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman (constellation Virgo)clothed with the sun (just below the horizon), with the moon(male-child) under her feet and a crown of twelve stars (constellation Bernice) on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.

Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon (constellation Draco) with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.

The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child (the moon), who will rule all the nations with an iron
scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to His throne."

While these signs can always be perverted (such as in astrology), they were originally given to herald important events in the history of humankind (Gen. 1:14, Luke 21:25, PS. 19:1-6). The Jews understood this concept which is why they asked Jesus for a sign in the heavens to back up His claim of being the Messiah (Matthew 16:1).

While you may be able to fake a healing or an earthly sign, no one can manipulate or control the stars. Hence, a sign in the stars provided a fool proof way of prophetic identity. Jesus DID have the credentials in His prophetic birth and accompanying signs in the heavens, but the
religious people of His day missed those signs because they didn't come the way they were expecting. And so it is today.

While the signs in the heavens have been all over the sky in our generation proclaiming a new era is about to dawn, few people are recognizing them.

What does this sign mean? God is certainly birthing something of great significance, but what is it? The signs would seem to indicate that this birthing was foretold in the scripture similar to the birth of Jesus 2000 years ago when His life was the fulfillment of scriptures that he could not have manipulated.

I believe it has something to do with the apostolic office that God is now restoring to the body of Christ. The restoration birth pangs have been coming ever since the reformation with Martin Luther. Over the past 1500 years the ministry gifts of pastor, teacher, evangelist, prophet and now apostle are being restored to the corporate understanding of "church."

With the restoration of the apostle, we can expect not just a revival of the old order "church," but a whole new revolution of what "church" is and how we do it. Those who are desperately hungry for a genuine relationship with the living God and are weary of playing the religious games with modern day "Churchianity" are among those who
will receive and embrace this new revolution of church order.

I am certainly not degrading the labor of our forefathers who have fought valiantly by establishing the great denominations which are known throughout Christianity, but it is now the proper time in ecclesiastical history to unite under one banner and allow Christ in His body to reclaim the earth for His glory. Part of the apostolic
anointing in our generation is for the purpose of bringing together God's body according to His pattern or matrix.

The beginning of correct order involves Jesus truly becoming the chief cornerstone (Eph. 2:20) and the head of His church body. This can only happen when we start giving our lives and meetings over to Him instead of looking
to man's ability. Our natural abilities are often an affront to the finished work of Christ. We need to embrace the cross and let God be God.

One of the biggest wrong mindsets that true apostles will help to crucify is the clergy vs. laity mentality. The priesthood of ALL believers must be restored where Jesus is the only clergy and his body functions according to directions from Him. This is not an excuse for independence from others, on the contrary Jesus will most often speak to us through people in His body, and we must be able to discern His voice through whomever He decides to speak.

However, true apostles will not draw men to themselves but point them to Jesus. God is not impressed with the giftings that He gives to people and we shouldn't be either. Many of the Lord's apostles are working secular jobs and considering it a full time ministry. The marketplaces will be transformed when they witness the true life of Christ in action.

The correct pattern for church includes a restoration of a "divine culture" to house the "life" that is always a result of a true move of the Holy Spirit. This divine culture will be an integrated pattern of thought speech and action that is based on a proper balance of the Word of God and the Spirit of God.

I believe it involves small group "house-church" meetings weekly, larger "tribal" meetings monthly, and three big region-wide meetings yearly on the three main feasts of the Lord (Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles). This order is simply the biblical "wrapper" to contain the life of Christ. If it is done without the LIFE it will just be a dead religious work. Nevertheless, the feasts of the Lord are a big key to divine worship order. See

AwarenessMinistry.org

for how this is being done.

This sign and wonder on September 11th 1999 happened on the Feast of Trumpets which is one of the seven major feast days of the Lord (Leviticus 23). Trumpets in scripture are always symbolic of messages, and I think God is certainly trying to convey a message concerning the
birth of a new age in Christendom.

The specifics of this message will take years to fully understand, but the birth of something significant in the purposes of God in the earth has certainly been trumpeted for all who have ears to hear.

Where is the outrage you asked.
I'll answer you from my point of view,
it's worn on the faces of survivors
of that dreadful day.
Written on the minds of all who
witnessed the horror of planes
aimed at buildings filled with unsuspecting
humans, who in horror realized that
they would never see the light of day again.

In the dust, in crevices and places of the heart,
acid etched in memory
of terror, panic, and the awe of heinous acts
we had not seen in our lives so serene...
as a people of freedom land
the demons danced upon our land
and crying, moaning filled the hours
as visions flashed of falling towers
and people falling through the air
oh my God, what has happened here??!!

The outrage lives in some of us
we will not forget the death and gore
let loose upon our land,
let the young remember when our
land was safe from terror's hand
and hell's unholy band
of bandits and horrible greed, unleashed
and in our face, are we so dumb
to not remember that dark day??

NOTHING is going to take away MY outrage. I WILL NOT BECOME COMPLACENT. I believe that every September 11th we should watch the pictures of the people diving out of the top floors of the WTC to their death. Not to be gruesome, but so that we can truly remember the horror. Like the Darryl Worley song says -- "I;d show 'em every day." We have every reason to be angry and that anger (read: Righteous indignation) should not diminish with the passage of time. I for one won't let it!

(thanks for the ping Carlo3b)

Jenny, your post encouraged us to go out tonight and get a permanent pole so we could fly our flag more often. My boy was thrilled. I don't know why we didn't do it sooner.. Thanks

We are not in your face with what not to do but we are behind you with what should be done. Just take the time to listen and you will hear us, as will the rest of the country and the world..

We talked about this at dinner tonight.. I told him that most folks are strong patriots that just don't wave flags until something happens.
I can't show him this thread yet.. If he knew I posted it before I told him he would be furious.. HA! I'll wait until I make the cannoli's this weekend.. then I'll spring it on him.. LOLOL

All we can do is remind our family and neighbors, and perhaps a teacher or two.. If we don't quit, it won't ever die..it lives on in our kids and those who we touch.. NEVER FORGET!

. Others just don't know how to honor those who gave their all because they were never taught to show proper respect.

That is so true, we have raised 2 generations of pampered kids that have never had to suffer a day in their lives.. sometimes I wonder if prosperity has been all that good for our country.. and then I look at my kids and their great friends and am relieved that we are indeed doing something right.. Bless you my dear friend.. :)

You must be so proud of your son Carlo! And well you should be. Proves that you have done a superb job of setting a good example.

I agree with him, where is the outrage? I still feel it every single day, and will as long as I am on this earth. My outrage has expanded to include the so called leaders of the democrat party who are using this war to attack the administration, which I feel is decidedly undermining our security and harming our troops moral and safety.

I am appalled at this, and I can't for the life of me see how they can just continue to get away with this. I would hope that as their time for elections come due, they are soundly defeated for what I feel is their reckless behavior. It is outrageous indeed.

God help us get through this with our country intact, as they are trying like the very demons in hell to destroy it. Reading your son's post does give me hope however. Please tell him how much I appreciate him!

Children often notice what others miss.
My 14 yr old son remarked to me just the other day that there were so few car flags and other commemerations anymore. He is right..whatever happened to "Never Forget"?
In my office I put some imagery on the walls in 2001 with "Remember" and "Never Forget". Anyone visits me will get a reminder :)

I just read your thread about saying goodbye(very touching), and visited your homepage. You're an energetic man :)
all the best to you and yours :)
