    Default Another angle of WHY we "never forget"

    AND why it IS and WAS so emotional. And why folks still feel pain and anger so many years later. Those in the buildings. Those on the airplanes. Those who heroically ran into the buildings. Just all so much and too much.

    The majority of Americans didn't have relations in the WTC or the planes, nor did they know anyone themselves. And yet it hit ALL Americans, and we ALL feel like we lost someone that we knew that day.

    Now we get a look into what the first emergency personnel were finding out, when, and how they responded and such. This is crazy.

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
    Winston Churchill

    That brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat.

    I will NOT chronicle what I did that day, or my memories of
    when I was stationed in NYC.

    These petty 'theories' began by deniers are a slap in the face
    of those that perished, the First Responders that died, the
    families of the dead, and the courage of the ones that sought
    to save people.

    Moreover, it is an insult to get all over then Mayor Gulianti
    and Pres GWB.

    Whiners beware....I stand proudly with all of them.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    My son-in-law and his best friend were sight seeing in NYC on 9/10 and have photos of themselves in the towers. They flew home that night and heard news on way home from airport. Still gives me goose bumps thinking how close he came to dying there.
