I think the Pentagon definitely fits your statement, no semantics argument there!

Call me an alarmist, but I would advise people to prepare for martial law.

Is there any national news coverage from the Boston airport (if one of the jets, in fact, did originate from Boston)?

I had to evacuate. Just got home. Waiting to see if I am going to break down or not. I will commit my recollections to paper, and will make them available sometime soon, for what they are worth. I am sick and stunned. Good grief. I had a lot of are you ok messages and emails and freepmails waiting for me at home, and prayers too. I thank you all for that.

You folks are really nice. It warms my heart. I am drinking heavily. Sam Adams. We are a great nation. We'll be fine. I just feel so bad for the people who lost loved ones today. For me, it was an emotionally intense, insane day, fraught with danger, anxiety, and fear. But tonight I am home with my wife. I am so thankful for that I cannot tell you. Horrifying day. I watched the second tower crumble and fall to the sound of screams of horror. Just unbelievable. I am very thankful also for all the kind thoughts and prayers. I am truly touched by it. Thanks.

As far as I know, this is the first article on FR to note today's terrorist attacks on the USA. It gives a remarkable testimony to the events as they unfolded. One may also wish to note the other articles that appeared on FR just before and after this one.

The very least I can do is bump it a little in case someone may wish to note and save the same.

You are correct, it is the "how it unfolded" thread. These are the ones I like to show to people unfamiliar with FR so they can get a sense of how things work here.

With that, I say goodnight. May God bless the Free Republic!

Thanks, I've finally bookmarked that thread.

I came on-line that morning, looked over the threads and the World Trade Center title looked boring. Later, I noticed it was getting a lot of traffic and finally had the sense to look. Incredible. Both planes had already hit both towers and I ran to turn on Fox. Reports were that some 50,000 people worked in the towers and the pictures were such that, to me, it is a miracle that only 3,000+ were killed, particularly after watching the towers collapse. Don't think I'm callous, I have both the deepest sympathy for the families of the dead and the deepest rage for the perps.

A short time later there was the report of the attack on the Pentagon and reports of a 4th hijacked plane. What an unforgetable day, it changed everything. It was so good to have FR to hang together with and this was the lead thread.

Weird: I had the same idea, trying to find the very first threads on FR when 9-11 happened.

This stuff should be archived for posterity. Nowhere else is there this kind of running commentary from ordinary people about what happened that day.

Allow me to sing, please...

God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America! My home sweet home.
God bless America! My home sweet home.

Never again.
