Remember September 11, 2001 as documented LIVE on Free Republic
Free Republic ^ | 09/07/06 | NewLand

Posted on 09/07/2006 4:25:59 PM PDT by NewLand

As the 5th anniversary of the cowardly and tragic attack on America approaches, let us look back and remember as if we were there.

Many people were here on FR, reporting events with lightning speed, with unique insights, with analytical accuracy, with sadness, with anger.

Here are some links to the "live" threads from 9/11/01 here on FR. For those of you who have never seen them, it is like watching a piece of history unfold before you, in the familiar style of FR. For those who have seen before but not in a long time, this will be a good memory. For those who have revisited these threads many times over the years, and have continued to post on them, please continue to participate.

This can also be a great place and time for people to share their unique and special 9/11 stories...where they were, who was there, who they knew...who they lost.

We all lost 3000+ fellow Americans that day. As said many times here on FR....

NEVER FORGET! ALWAYS REMEMBER!

It's even more shocking now, knowing how the DBM/dems are trying to do everything they can to make America fail on the WOT!!

Godspeed to the USA!

It takes a lot of cash to smash two jets, don't you think? Can you say Osama bin-Laden?

I was in highschool on the west coast. My dad walked into my room and said "Steph, you need to get up now. The world has just changed." I had to go to school and the teachers were trying to pretend like nothing was happening, but there was this whole underground network among the students trying to figure out what was going on. I went home that night and sat in front of the TV for the whole night.

They probably still are...

Did you watch Fox or CNN?

This was the best place to be that horrible day that is for sure. We will never forget that day, and thanks so much for the links to the threads.

I was home in Long Beach, CA.

It was early.

We have a small World Trade Center in downtown Long Beach.

When I first heard "plane hits WTC", I thought maybe a small plane hit the one here (I hadn't had my coffee yet)

As the morning unfolded, I grabbed my guns and was ready for war. There were reports of car bombs, and I expected suicide bombers.

I thought it was Saddam, or this guy Osama bin Laden that I had heard about after the Cole bombing.

The streets were empty.

I live near the airport. No planes coming or going. Silent.

I knew the world changed that day. I expected frequent attacks.

I'm from New York. I know those towers. Saw them everyday.

I'll never forget 9/11.
