Posted on 05/29/2006 8:07:29 PM PDT by chris_in_nj
Well my good friends George and Laura have yet to see the movie United 93. To see it they have invited 2 people from each of the families of those that died on 9/11 aboard Flight 93. After a late lunch/early dinner with the President and First Lady but only one of us will be able to view the movie w/ them.
Since my mother has not seen it yet - but is ready to now - she will go in with them to view it...and I will get an up close and personal tour of the White House.
This, on the heels of Memorial Day, should be amazing. It's going to be heavy-duty on my mother but I think she'll handle it well....fingers crossed.
For anyone who has not seen it please do - it is amazing. You'll walk out having gone through every emotion possible in about 90 minutes...and you'll leave knowing full well why we are fighting.
Hope everyone had a safe and great weekend!
God Bless America,
Chris Proud son of Patrick 'Joe' Driscoll Flight 93
Never Forget Never Forgive
Give your Mom a hug from all of us.
"The Era of Osama lasted about an hour, from the time the first plane hit the tower to the moment the General Militia of Flight 93 reported for duty."
Bless you Chris and your Mother and most of all your Father.
I'll second that!
YOU going to the White House when? It sure is breaking news. The news just broke here FIRST.
I am so happy for you and your Mother! I know you will post a thread and give us a full report after! God bless you, and have a wonderful time.
God bless you and your family. Your dad will be with you when you meet President Bush, I have no doubt of it.
Is there an update??
God bless you, Chris. God bless your dear mother. And I am sure He is smiling upon your heroic father.
My husband and I plan to see the film tomorrow evening.
Bless you Chris. Let us all know what you have for lunch.
ask the president to make it mandatory for the congress and senate to watch it too...
bless your family and i will pray for strength in our country to see this war through to the end...
Your wish is my commnand.
'The MANSIONS of the Lord' stirring hymn from "WE WERE SOLDIERS" is now being sung at funeral services for our blessed killed in action returning fron Iraq & Afghanistan.
Despict CBS Television Network's editing it out of its "WE WERE SOLDIERS" airing last Sunday night.
so sorry for your loss,...our loss on 911
How did it all go?
See if you can get GW's FR handle.
Very disheartening, but not surprising, to read that. I taped the airing, while I watched the Memorial Day Concert in DC on another channel, delighted that CBS was showing it, but my old VCR did not cooperate and the tape got ruined.
I will never forget, and there are more Americans of our age who will never forget, than who still think fighting to save Vietnam was wrong. Unfortunately, many of those who are in media jobs are in the latter group. We are invisible to them, but we vote. And when they (the media) are surprised by the results, they "feel" that we cheated, because they believe we are not really a large number. I believe that we are a solid majority in America.
I am terribly sorry for the loss of your loved one. He is our hero. Enjoy your visit with the President and First Lady. Give your mother a hug for me. God bless you, friend.
Fill us in when you get a chance....
WOW! Lucky you.
I saw the film and I think it should be in every classroom in america from the grade of 6th on...
It is clear who hates us, not to mention the home grown terrorist we have who hate our country and president.
Tell W and Laura, West Texas misses them and we love them.
When you see President Bush, please put a bug in his ear that the little people in flyover country are mad as Hell about the porous borders. Maybe he hasn't noticed. /sarcasm
I read your post yesterday about the plans of you and your Mother dining with the President and First Lady, and I'm wondering if you've had chance to write about all that happened while you were at the White House. I'd enjoy hearing how it went.
God bless you and your family!
I agree! I am soory about the reason for the visit but I am so jealous!
I'm about to type it up now..I hope I do it justice...what an night!! A few pics to go with it w/ some guests that I was thrilled to meet....I hope I attach the pics correctly.
I can't wait to read and see your pics....if you need help posting them let me know.
Can't wait Dude!
bttt...waiting (tap, tap, tap)
Can't wait. Take your time even though we are all waiting. God Bless you and your Mom.
Hey Judy - he posted a thread....did you find it?
No, I didn't - could you point me in the right direction, please.
PS - your dogs are beauties!
Sorry- SCB, I found it - thanks for telling me about it!
Reference to all who visit this thread - chris_in_nj has posted a wonderful thread with his delightful write-up and awesome photos here:
Thanks Rte66 - that was very nice of you.
Ask him why the border wasn't sealed off by sundown on 9/11.
What your Dad and his fellow passengers did on 9-11 was the one bright moment in that horrific day. God bless you and your family.
I need to wait to see it when it comes out on dvd.
Me too. He is the only president I have ever wanted to meet in person. He just seems so real to me.
Chris, while I am so very humbled by your loss, it is my hope that the president and his wife will be able to offer you and yours some comfort. You are in my prayers.

We have the original of that CHAIN here in San Antonio.
I suppose it's OK if you're into yuppie, Austin-like food. We go for the real thing over here in God's Country. We go to Harmon's in Cibolo.
