Never Forget 9-11


Nothing in my lifetime has been such an evil assault on America, than the attack of 9-11.

2996 people were killed and over 6000 were wounded. The dead included eight children: five on American Airlines Flight 77, aged 3 to 11, and three on United Airlines Flight 175, aged 2, 3, and 4. The youngest victim was a two-and-a-half-year-old child on Flight 175 and the oldest was an 85-year-old passenger on Flight 11. As horrible as that day was the tragedy was only made bearable by the strength shown by Americans who did what they could to save the lives of others. 

40 of the people killed were on United flight 93.  When the passengers on flight 93 learned of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, they attempted to take control of the plane. During the struggle, the plane crashed into a field near a reclaimed strip mine in Stonycreek Township, near Indian Lake and Shanksville, about 65 miles (105 km) southeast of Pittsburgh.  That plane was headed toward the Capitol.  Those passengers bravely gave their lives in an effort to protect the people who work at the Capitol, and to protect the symbol of our democracy.

For a moment,let us put politics aside and listen to words of Mike Pence in Shanksville PA.  He gave a tribute to the heroes who gave their lives so others might live.

My favorite video was narrated by Tom Hanks and told the story of the boat-lift of people desperately trying to get out of Manhatten.

Tell your children.  Ask them to watch this video.  This is what makes America great!

NEVER FORGET!!!

  1. I remember well. And I don’t want to ever forget what prompted this attack. I never want to forget what lead up to this attack. I want to remember who was involved, who committed the attack and why. It is another sad day in History that Our fellow Americans suffered at the hands of bullies.

  2. One of the things that surprises me is that Trump has not gone into the real, classified 9/11 documents and blown the cover off that event. A lot of people knew it was going to happen, and when. There was a spike in put options, bets that stocks would drop, on the affected businesses. Rumsfeld and Zakheim used the day before the attack to announce that they found $2.3 trillion unaccounted for (missing) in a DoD/Pentagon audit. Thousands of people in the towers called in sick on 9/11. There was a camera crew across the Hudson filming the attack before it occurred. The Feds never interrogated them long enough to find out how they knew. And there’s the classic “My Pet Goat” response to the country under attack. He knew!
