9/11/01 We Will Never Forget!

  1. I found this today, and thought I would post it, as the anniversary of that day approaches. I must warn you....you will need a kleenex in hand. I tried not to cry....but I failed miserably..

    Thank you for posting this. Words are inadequate. It should simply be viewed.

    Wow Brownie!!!!!

    Even after a year, those images are still so powerful--I, too, had difficulty keeping a lid on it!

    I wonder if we know enough now to prevent another 9/11 type tragedy?

    Wow, I'm never at a loss for words over everything.

    I live so far away from NYC, but I was really affected by the incident. I remember watching CNN the whole night through and well into the 12th. We even lost a nurse from our city.

    I urge you all to read the September issue of Vanity Fair. 2 very excellently written pieces. Were very cathartic for me to read.

    One about the ongoing grief of the widows. I mean we don't even think about what they went through having to do things like claim death certificates in order to get compensation and insurance claims.

    The other a beautiful and very dignified pictorial and article on the Collapse itself.

    Wow. It seems like only yesterday that this tragedy happened. It's hard to believe it's almost a year. I can remember exactly where and who I was with. I got that sick feeling in my stomach again and the chills.

    Thank you, I will send to all my friends and family, those images are so powefull and emotional!!

    Thank you Brownie for taking the time to share that link with us. I am so inspired, more encouraged, and stronger in spirit for watching that in its entirety. I've never been to New York except to land and change planes at the John F. Kennedy Airport there, yet I feel in my spirit as if I've been there before when watching that video. Enya's song was a great choice to use for background music, too. Beautiful song....beautiful people...:kiss

    Saw this a while back-it's just as awsome now. Even though we're 3,000 miles away, could have been Long Beach's WTC.
    We will never forget

    Prayer from Fr. Mychal Judge-FDNY Chaplin EOW 9-11-01

    "Lord, take me where you want me to go
    Let me meet who you want me to meet
    Tell me what you want me to say
    And keep me out of your way."

    I cannot relive this again and again. The thought is wonderful and we should never, ever forget but if I see those towers collapse one more time, or hear the conversations on the doomed flights again, I will crack up. I will remember the day w/silence and prayer. But the TV AND RADIO WILL BE OFF IN MY home. I just can't do it over and over again.

    My son and I sat here and watched this, we both cried. Jacob is 6 years old and was asking me who died and why they died. Its hard to explain terrorism to a 6 year old boy why somebody you have never met wants to kill you just because you are being who you are, an American.
    I put him on the bus that morning not knowing what had happened. The bus driver said they world be running late because of what was happening on post (we live outside of Ft Wainwright). I just said take your time don't worry. I went back inside and turned on the tv and found out what he allready knew. I held my other son Connor close to me for the rest of the day until Jacob returned home.
    One of my co-workers lost his sister in the collapse, she was able to call her mom after the plane hit and told her family that she loved them. He flew to New York and looked for her but she was never found.
    Blessings on those who met as strangers but are now sisters and brothers to us all and will never be forgotten
