Plane Crashes into World Trade Center
NewYork1 | 9/11/01

Posted on 09/11/2001 5:56:49 AM PDT by hellinahandcart

Just in. I am looking at a picture of the WTC with smoke pouring out of the western tower. Looks like a huge amount of damage. Debris raining down on people in the street.

No problem. But perhaps next time you could bump it to yourself or blank out that box?

There's something to be said for leaving these historical threads be.

I say that hypocritically, having recently bumped one myself.

I lost a good friend that day. Steven Cafiero. He worked for Aon in the South Tower. He was above where the plane hit. He worked on the 92nd floor. He was the best guy.
So many wonderful people lost that day.

Do you realize in retrospect that it took you only 20 minutes to figure out the right answer...

At the time, it was only gut instinct to name bin Laden.

I've tried to go back to figure out how I was able to name bin Laden. As best as I can analyze what I was thinking, I had been reading the New York Daily News' coverage of the trials of the bombers of our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania (of the Post, NYT and the Daily News, the DN had the best coverage). One of them was due to be sentenced that week. I had thought it was a jail break because the jail/courthouse was so close to the WTC, but I don't think I posted it--it was just one of those passing silly thoughts. I had also watched "Behind the Veil" (I think that's the title), a CNN documentary about the Taliban's treatment of women in Afghanistan the previous Sunday.

It still sickens me to know I was right.

On this third anniversary, I pray for the families of the victims, for the strength of the American people to defeat this attack, and for the continued safety of America against another attack. And I also pray that our leaders shall find the courage and power to fully defeat this enemy without regard to political considerations. Amen.

goodness, i could never forget those images. I have that image of the guy falling head first (wearing the black pants) burned into my memory because i think i saw him fall on live tv. I just thought to myself, god what nameless horrors exist in the world.

whenever i spend alot of time thinking about 9.11 that image always comes back.

gosh, i thought i was immune to crying over 9/11 after 3 years but after thinking about those pictures of those people falling to their deaths i teared up.

the terrorists have allied themselves with satan and they care nothing for innocent human life. its hard to realize that those people still have some power of fear over our country. i pray osama bin laden is brought to justice in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

A lot was going on that morning. I know I had to drop off my kid and then get in to work that morning.


A lot has happened since then.

There will be more posts today in remembrance.

There were probably also duplicate threads running as well at the time . . .

As I read this post and viewed the images tears poured down my face and my heart began to break all over again. May we never forget what happened that day. May we never lose the pride of being an American. I am so thankful that we had a man who leads by convictions and seeks God in his daily life leading us at this most trying time for our nation. May God bless the victims and the families of September 11th and may God bless the United States of America.


“After the Declaration of Independence was signed, Virginia statesman John Page wrote to Thomas Jefferson: "We know the Race is not to the swift nor the Battle to the Strong. Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm?"

Much time has passed since Jefferson arrived for his inaugural. The years and changes accumulate. But the themes of this day he would know: our nation's grand story of courage, and its simple dream of dignity.


These words still ring true:

We are not this story's author, who fills time and eternity with His purpose. Yet His purpose is achieved in our duty; and our duty is fulfilled in service to one another.

Never tiring, never yielding, never finishing, we renew that purpose today: to make our country more just and generous; to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life.

This work continues. This story goes on. And an angel still rides in the whirlwind and directs this storm.”

Excerpt from George W. Bush’s Inaugural Speech 1/20/04:
