I appreciate the publishing of these pictures. It help us to remember vividly that tragic day. and also remind us that we are still living in a democratic society...
gstyle78, I truly and wholeheartedly agree with you. This horrible and tragic ATTACK on our nation has affected every single one of us in one way or another. I remember where I was. I was in my Health class in college, I came back to my dorm to see my roommate holding her head and looking at the television in horror. I asked her what was going on and she couldn't talk. I saw the second tower get struck and could not believe what I was seeing!!!! I ran over to my Criminal Justice class and was trying to reach my boyfriend (at the time), whom at the time was in the 414th Military Police Unit (Army). When he got to class he had this look on his face and I knew he was going to be deployed. He was, right after Christmas to GITMO to watch over these sons of bitches who aided in ATTACKING our country!! Even in Missouri we felt it. I have always been patriotic to our country and now I am a Police Officer, which makes me even more so. I feel for the people who lost someone in this ATTACK. I don't think we should just brush this under the rug and forget, because you know what happens when we forget, we become complacent and we will be attacked again! This is our country and we need to stand strong! God bless all of the lives that were lost and the lives it affected, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
gstyle78....WOW!!!! As a Marine and LEO I am happy to see that there are still people that will stand up and say what you have said. As a brother My deepest sympathies to you in the loss of your family. I was in the Marines when this happened I missed being deployed due to an injury that kept me from re-enlisting. And I lost several friends over there that were fighting to prevent this from happening again. If we forget this we spit in the faces of the men and women that have died from this event and every other event, war, or skirmish that this county has ever been in. And I have to say it too GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!
After reviewing back a number of pages, and reading some of the posts, as well as remembering where I was on that fatefull and historic day, I have to adamently, emotionally, and whole-heartedly DISAGREE with the idiotic and unpatriotic @$$e$ who say we should move on a forget what happened, or get over it and let it stay in the past. It is to these individuals that I ask, which dumpster did you put your loyalty to our country in and why? How can you have become so completely and voluntarily ignorant of where our country is headed and how bad things have become? Do you not remember our national pride we all shared back in the 1980's and 1990's? I live in the Phoenix, AZ metro valley, but when our great nation was violated in the name of Allah and Mohamed, I was in UT. I walked into the breakroom where I worked and watched the news for about five minutes, then asked what the name of the movie was that they were watching. The response I got back still chills my blood and puts my mind into a cold rage, "This isn't a movie, it really happening." We can never forget, SHOULD never forget, CAN'T EVER FORGET!!
The day we choose to forget what happened that day, the lives we lost, the friends, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandparents who were stolen from our lives in an act of cowardly fear and blind hatred are a reminder that we have a responsibility to NEVER let it happen again.
"Remember the Alamo!"
"Remember Pearl Harbor!"
As a father, I have a responsibility to teach my children the difference between right and wrong, to instill in them a sense of self-worth, self-confidence, courage to stand up for truth and right, and above all a LOVE for our country, our freedoms, and our ability to live in accordance to what we feel to be right, so long as we do NOT infringe upon the rights of another. At the same time, where do I draw the line? Where do any of us draw the line? I say that unless you are a LEGAL CITIZEN of this country and harbor desires to act against the laws and people of this country, YOU DO NOT BELONG NOR DO YOU HAVE ANY RIGHTS IN MY COUNTRY!! I WILL DEFEND THIS NATION WITH MY LIFE!!! ESPECIALLY IF IT MEANS I HAVE TO TAKE YOURS TO DO IT!!! To those who say we earned it, you are no better than the ones who committed the crimes that day. To those who say we should move on and get over it, I say you should have been on the 79th floor of the North Tower that day!
I lost two brothers that day, both were in the North Tower, one of them with his girlfriend who he was planning to propose to during a special lunch later in the day. I was on the phone with him when the tower collapsed, so anyone who feels I am out of line, bite me, I am justified. God Bless America!!!
All I have to say is you all should really do some research into 9/11. You might just wake up and be really pissed off at what you find out. DON'T listen to what the C.I.A. run media tells you, they hide the truth!!
WBscouts2...I agree! This country has become sissified. And thank you for your service!
Always remembered....I lost several Miltary and civilian friends that day....

9-11. Not just the towers but, 2 other attacks as well. Air Force One in the air with little idea if this was the end or the beginning. Not a plane in the sky for the first time in my lifetime. A hidious day in American history. But, also our finest day. The heroics on that day and the fortitude of the people attacked fills me with pride and humility. All I wanted on that day and many days to follow was a flag. Wanted to throw it on my bed and sleep beneath its safety. Show the pictures. Not so often as to become deadened to the shock but, often enough to keep the feellings alive.
Seeing this stuff makes me sad and upset all over again. I just wish that people would understand/remember that this also happened outside of New York. True, not nearly as many died, but maybe its stuck with me more because some of my dad's friends were in the Pentagon when it happened.
Biden your words make me feel safe and cozy that this is not possible again!!! BARF
Very chilling photos. The first time I watched this, as it happened, I had that feeling of "Let's do some pay back now and go kick some ass." Before, no country would mess with the U.S. Now, no one is affraid to terrorize our country. We should go back to Kissing Ass and Taking Names as we did in the Corps. USMC 1959-1963, USAF 1964-1980.
I remember watching the towers fall from my office at 32 Court Street in Brooklyn. I remember driving people home as they walked off the bridge in shock; some not even knowing where they were. I remember the incredulous look on their faces and what downtown Manhattan looked like weeks later. I remember the wretched smell of death for months after 9/11 every time I went over the Brooklyn Bridge. We will never forget.
Never Never Forget!
