Hard to believe its been 11 years. R.I.P. all the victims of this horrible tragedy.
I know. crazy, isn't it?
Lest we never forget
Thank you to ALL service members that help keep us safe; Police, Fire Fighters, Military, Paramedics.
Well said -----God Bless
It does not seem that long ago.
Truly one of those times in history where people remember where they were and what they were doing when that happened.
I just finished a chilling story in the San Antonio Express-News from this morning's edition of a San Antonio family who received a "note" from the husband-father after ten years time. The note had very few words, something to the effect of "84th floor, West office, 12 people trapped". The family had believed, no, hoped that he had been killed instantly when the plane hit, but the note proved otherwise, ten years later. The only way they identified the note as being from him, was a bloody fingerprint on the note that was ID'd by DNA. If you can,go to the Express-News site and read it. It brought tears to my eyes.
Tragedy??? More like a travesty!
I will never forgive, and I will certainly never forget.
It is a stunningly beautiful day here today in DC. What a lovely day to sit outside, on the National Mall, and reflect back to 11 years ago today.
I humbly and respectfully will do just that, and remember those who were lost.
My bus ride in to DC this morning went on a detour to the Pentagon (it's on my normal daily route). I did not realize that the 9/11 memorial service was already being prepared for so early.
Yes. It's like the event is tattooed in to memory.
It's a gorgeous day here in NYC too. People were commenting that today's weather is a xerox copy of September 11th 2001.
Yesterday, I taped the voices of 9/11, where they told what happened, with peoples voices from that day. I barely got through it, without shedding a tear, and I am not one to cry.
Hard to believe it's been over a decade...crazy how fast time can go by.
It's was one of those days that everyone old enough to know what was going on will remember where they were when the planes hit and the towers fell.
As for now, I just want to pay homage to those that lost their lives and the families and friends that lost loved ones.
I truly feel for those who lost their lives. With that said, I'm out of this thread, too. It's just a touchy subject that brings up a lot of [divisive] emotions for most of us.
Classless NBC decides to skip the moment of silence.
NBC’s ‘Today’ Skips 9/11 Moment Of Silence For Kardashian Interview
At 8:46 AM, in New York City and at the White House in Washington DC, there was a moment of silence to remember when the first plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In New York, the NYPD, FDNY, Port Authority Police and the families of the victims were present, while in Washington the President and the First Lady led the moment.
The cable networks all carried it, with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning” carrying it as well. The only national general news program to not carry the moment of silence was NBC’s ‘Today,” which, in an odd bit of counter-programming, opted to air an interview with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kris Jenner, who talked about the new season of the reality show, and her breast implants.
Really NBC? You skip a moment of silence remembering one of the nation's most impactful days to have an interview with a reality show star about her breast implants? What a disgrace...
Lets keep the thread on track. Remembering the people of 9-11 and not how tasteless our media can be ..Thanks
I work for an airline & I am not sure we'll ever get over it.
Just a day that won't ever be forgotten.
Lost a few friends, and it was a tough day all around. Changed my life.
RIP. Thanks. Miss you guys.
