Reminder: This Saturday is 9/11.
For all those who perished on 9/11/01. We will never
forget. God Bless you all.

9 years...

It's hard to believe that was 9 years ago, seems so much more recent.

It is recent...

Considering the time that man has been on this earth, 9 years is not a long time.

9 years is only long enough for us, with our short term attention spans, to forget about the attack and how we felt that day. I personally felt violated that day and HAVENT forgotten...

Time flies...that was a

Time flies...that was a scary and sad day.

One of those few days

9/11/01 was one of the few days in our lives that most all of us can remember what we were doing at that fatal moment.
Like Dwaynes said: Hard to imagine that it has been that long. GOD bless those families for the loss on that day. We will never forget you.

9/11/01

Being a wife of a firefighter and watching with horror the events unfolding that day my heart ached for the brave and the innocent and the ones they left behind.
The emotional scars we all have resurface on these traumatic anniversary dates so we can remember these people in our thoughts and in our prayers.
Also remember there are still bad people out there that want to hurt us. Tolerance is one thing, trust is another.

Garmin nuvi 2455 - nuvi 350, 260 (spares) - my other toys: IMac quad-core i3, Mac Mini, MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6/Catalina 10.15.7. and introducing The Beast, a 2013 Dodge Charger Pursuit and his Garmin DriveSmart 5. The dog's name is Ginger.

Changed my life

Living in the suburbs of DC and up the street from the (at the time) Naval Surface Weapons lab.. kids away at college, wife & I at work.. lot's of phone calls that eventually connected, so everyone knew everyone else was ok.

Had to run an errand around 1pm.. just bizarre. No one on the road. An electronic sign on US50 southbound that said "Washington DC area closed- use 495 & 95 south to bypass city" or something just as crazy.

Days of strange silence outside (no jets), people that had to drive simply in an obvious daze but EVERYONE unusually polite.

Changed my life for sure. I'm shaking and tearing up as I type.

Changed my view of life, people, politics forever.

God bless all that perished and their families. I'm trying to be a better person and true patriot in their honor.

I fly my flag all the time. I am proud to be an American. I lost some friends on 9/11 and was actually in the towers 2 days before. Let us never forget.

A day never to be forgotten

A day never to be forgotten for those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who lost their lives in the attack.

pkdmslf I agree with you!
Why just September 11th, Americans should fly the flag everyday, not just patriotic holidays. Just be-sure the American flag is made here in America and not China.

One Heck of a Day !

A day I'll never forget. The whole world changed that day, in obvious and not so obvious ways. Never forget!

All of the time...

The American Flag is flown proudly year 'round at the top of our 3 story New England barn.

Recently put up a "Don't tread on me" flag, respectfully placed on another part of the property.
American flag first and foremost.

We should all remember

I know exactly where I was and what I was doing that day. I will never forget!

And my flag flies 24 hours a day. It is treated with respect and removed and disposed of with respect and honor. My Scout Troop does the honor.

God bless all!

While 911 was a very SAD day for many family members of this country that had such a great lost...

This is a Country that refuses to learn from past mistakes!

I'm retired now but I was working in Manhattan, doing an 8x4 on 9/11... I remember hearing screams from the radio I signed out earlier, screams from fellow officers and not being close enough or able to help. Some from my precinct were mobilized to the Trade Center, some were told to stand fast and continue to maintain order in our various commands.

I know we get paid to do things that most sane people run away from...we do not expect the public to fully understand all that goes on...like I said, we get paid to do what we do, but as a Police Officer, you rarely hear thank you. kch - thank you.

The biggest problem is we let political correctness take over instead of common sense. Especially in Washington.

How well I remember

I was on duty at the fire house when this happened, It was a shocker to say the least. Several of us volunteered to go there or DC to be of assistance. We were ready but at the end we were released from call to go. I would still go if it became necessary.

God bless all..

CERT

Don't know if this is fitting, or ironic - perhaps both - I had my first day of CERT training today. Have another one next Saturday. I'm hoping to put my skills to use as as volunteer when they activate the EOC.
