A day to remember for as long as we live

In addition to whatever else you have planned today to remember that awful day, September 11, 2001, watch this moving powerpoint presentation that Pamela Geller posted some years ago at Atlas ShrugsClick here (it takes a few seconds to load).

God bless our great country and all those who were so brutally murdered that day.

  1. I decided that I was not going to watch the news today, nor listen to the radio, or do anything else but reflect on my personal experience of that terrible day. I remember exactly what I was doing, where I was, and the extreme emotions of the whole event. I had just driven through the cut in the mountain at Sidling Hill. The first report came over the radio: a plane had hit the World Trade Center. My initial thought was: Man, some air traffic controller’s butt is going to swing for this. Then, the news hit that the second WTC had been hit. I thought to myself, OK, this cannot be coinidence, somethings wrong here. I called my wife on the cell phone I had, it was legal to drive and call at the same time then, and told her to turn on the TV news and see what was going on, and to call me back to let me know. And as you all know, the rest is history. I never remember a time that I felt so much anger, remorse, fear, hatred, and a need to abandon my job and get home to my wife. Not that the terrorists were going to attack us personally, I just needed to know that she was safe. Suffice to say that 9/11 was a bad day for Americans, all of us “real” Americans.
    Fast forward: When George Bush (at the WTC site) said: I hear you, the American people hear you, and the people that knocked these buildings down are going to be hearing from us real soon. For some reason, I felt better. We are not going to lay down and let these people get away with this. We are not going to turn it over to the UN, so they can talk it to death, we’re going after those responsible.
    You know the rest.
