Welcome To The FR Canteen

September 11th

Never Forget

flagline

September 11th is designated as Patriot Day, in memory of the nearly three thousand people who died in the September 11th, 2001 attacks on our Country.

"After the attacks on 9/11, America resolved that we would go on the offense against our enemies, and we would not distinguish between the terrorists and those who harbor and support them. All Americans honor the selfless men and women of our Armed Forces, the dedicated members of our public safety, law enforcement, and intelligence communities, and the thousands of others who work hard each day to protect our country, secure our liberty, and prevent future attacks."

"By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), the Congress has designated September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."

"I call upon the Governors of the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as appropriate officials of all units of government, to direct that the flag be flown at half staff on Patriot Day.

I also call upon the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and remembrance services, to display the flag at half staff from their homes on that day, and to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. eastern daylight time to honor the innocent Americans and people from around the world who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. " George W. Bush

Thanks, beachy, for the reminder of the help that Canada provided
getting all those planes out of the skies and on the ground.
I remember watching the reports of the whole area turning out to
help all the stranded passengers, even taking them into their homes.

We will NEVER forget!!

I remember reading first hand accounts by FReepers in the area....I lived at FR on my computer and was glued to the tv at the same time....reading and watching.

God was watching over your FRiend. This time of year must be really rough for him.

Good afternoon, Kathy!

*HUGS*

I really miss those Twin Towers - I remember when we used to drive up the Turnpike to the City we would first see them from about thirty miles away - if I recall correctly it was from below Newark.

Thanks for sharing your day. I don’t think anyone could believe what they seeing and hearing. A lot of tears that day, and they come back every 9-11.
