Twelve years ago today, terrorist flew planes into the Twin Towers in New York, one into the Pentagon and another was crashed into a field in PA thanks to the very brave acts of the passengers on board.
As a citizen of the United States and a member of the Armed Forces, I ask that you take a moment out of your day to stop and remember those that lost their lives that day. I also ask that you be those of every branch from every nation still fighting overseas today.
343 firefighters perished. To all my brothers career or volunteer, stay safe and remember those who kept our cities safe before us.
Thank you chopper duke for posting and for serving.
i remember turning on the tv before school, and it showed the tower on fire, and i thought it was just an action flick. i slowly realized something isn't right when there was no dialogue, the camera wasn't moving, and every channel i flipped to showed it. no reporters, no commentary, no text overlay, just the tower on fire with helicopters buzzes and police/fire truck sirens in the distance.
then i went to school thinking something important is happening and i'm going to miss it. nope, the first class the teacher just turned on the tv and we just sat there and watched it.
wow it's been 12 years?
That was a vivid day for me. Sitting at school watching the news/listening it to the radio wondering what was going to happen was surreal.
I was at work. CNN.com servers were crashing because they were the only ones streaming at the time.
I left work early for lunch and sat watching the TV just not at all believing what was going on. We had family in NY and extended family in the towers. You couldn't get in touch with anyone. All circuits were busy for hours.
Surely a day that will never be forgotten
Living less then 70 miles from NYC and having family in the city made for troubling thoughts
I salute the fallen and encourage the next-generation
"Lets Roll!!!". In memory of flight 95
My family was supposed to be on a flight to France that morning....scary part is that one of their flight #s was the same as one of the planes that went down..... Took me 7 hours to find out they were fine but it was their return flight # that was the same as the plane that went down..... No way I will ever forget......
It is often said that the price of Freedom is to be ever vigilant....I also believe it has another price - to also be brave enough to never bend in the face of fear.
Thanks to all who serve and to all with the courage to stand free.
I have family in PA and at the time my aunt lived in Pittsburgh, so this struck s nerve hearing how clode it was. I was on my way into work, riding my bike, and found out while working. Needless to say, very little got done that day.
different day, same thoughts
