Never Forget

We will never forget the attacks on our nation eight years ago today.

The Twin Towers in New York City...

The Pentagon in Northern Virginia...

And the terrorists' plans for Flight 93 thwarted by some brave passengers over a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania...

We will never forget what these terrorists have done to our nation, nor will we forget what the members of our Armed Forces have done for our nation.

May God bless you all - and may God bless the United States of America.

    God Bless everyone!

  9. Every day, I walk past a plaque dedicated to the men and women who worked for my employer who were killed that day. They were simply working in the towers and trying to take care of their families.

    I happened to be in Atlanta that day across from Dobbins Air Force Base and we watched Fighter jets scramble before we even knew what was happening. We did not see them land again that day - they simply refueled in air.

    But mostly, I remember driving home that day because flying was no longer an option. And strangers were giving other stranded strangers rides that day. People were consoling each other - and they had never met.

    And our workers in one of our Manhattan mid-town offices gathered all of their water bottles and gave them to ash covered people walking home.

    For all of the horror, that's what I remember most. We simply embraced each other that day - whether we knew each or not - and helped in whatever way we could.

    And I see that same sense of sacrifice in every airport that I walk through and see service men and women in uniform.

    We will never forget.

  10. It was truly the most awful day - we never should forget. So many lives lost and so many who gave their all for others. Whilst thinking about the evil in the world you are, at the same time, overwhelmed by the goodness and the love of people. I guess that is what makes it possible for us all to go on - love and friendship.
    Like Stella we pray for peace in the world.

  29. Wow that first pic is incredible - i am a paramedic and took a leave of absence from my job to help when it happened - i was there from September 12th till mid january - I have seem thousands of pic but that is the first one that brought back everything including the smells.

    Not to mention was 6 blocks away with my dad and watched the second plane hit - ran into the buildings with him and was pulling people out -

    thanx for remembering.
