12 years ago today, America changed forever. We lost citizens on our home soil without ever firing a shot. 2,996 lives lost. Over 400 of those were First-Responders who died trying to save their fellow citizens. Lets us not loose sight of that tragic day and the cost we paid. We lost more than just American lives, although that would be tragic enough by itself. We lost a piece of security and trust in our human race. The comfort and peace that came with living the American dream. We lost some innocence as well.
Take a moment today and reflect back to that day, a day that soon will fade much like December 7th, 1941 into the history books.
We experienced it first hand and need to keep that alive in the hearts and minds of those too young to know what America was before and has become after. Remember those who paid with their lives so that others may live.
John 15:13 says "greater love has no man than this, than to lay down his life for his brother".
Amen God Bless America!

Look at Obamamerika 2013. The War on Terror is over. Terror won.

(Same result as the War on Poverty, War on Drugs, etc.)

I remember walking into morning briefing and sitting down as someone walked in and told us to turn on the TV. We sat stunned, speechless and heart broken as we watched the 2nd tower being struck.
We were horrified as we watched the towers crumble. We left briefing in silence, much like a funeral. We wandered out to our patrol cars without speaking. That was the tone for the entire day. Numb.

Thank you Ratfink2U for your thoughtful words and remembrance.
I too recall that day ...long enough ago now but remembered as though it was yesterday. Even today the memory of those people who jumped from those towers to a certain death in order to avoid an equally certain though far more painful death haunt my memory ... and chill my blood.
We hit the Taliban and AQ hard in A'stan and drove them into either Pakistan or into Hell. But elements of the Taliban are ensconced in NW Pakistan.
And Al Qaeda has been dispersed and is popping up across North Africa and other mideast areas.
Another shoe is yet to drop.
Thank you, Barack Hussein Obama .... for your naivete and fecklessness.
Bush had the right idea. But just not enough time.



God bless America.

Ratfink2u; All,

THANKS, RF. WELL SAID.

As some of the EOF here know, I was on an 0715 Delta flight that horrible morning from SAT to BWI & got "an unscheduled stop" in Atlanta. - I was scared to death, especially after we landed and GA Troopers took an unidentified person off of our flight in irons.

Our flight's members were "stuck in Atlanta" for 3 days & what I remember best was feelings of HORROR that this could have happened and how hungry that we all were after the first day. - We weren't allowed to leave the hotel and that hotel had no café, though it had a bar with drinks & peanuts.
(In that >72 hours, we were fed twice by an "outside caterer". = Once cold scrambled eggs, toast & coffee and the other time, cold pizza & kool-aide.)

yours, sw

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the NatGeo, the History and the Learning Channels all had good presentations yesterday on 9/11. The only problem is that watching them made me quite angry. Angry that such a thing happened and angry at the state that the country is in and the direction that it seems to be heading.

I must confess that seeing that the "Million Muslim March" which was held on the anniversary of the attack was a complete dud helped since I'm convinced that the date was chosen as an in-your-face statement. The almost impromptu counter demonstration by bikers which had tremendous numbers also stirred a feeling of pride in me and gave me the hope that we might survive and even reverse the current trends. Time will tell.

TooTall,

I was SUPRIZED & PLEASED that all the press coverage (that I saw anyway) was respectful and "somewhat muted" in tone.

yours, sw

Most of what I saw was coverage on the memorial. It was very respectful I thought...with the exception of Zero. He spoke very little. Wait, maybe that was a good thing?:mrgreen:
