There's people graduating high school that didn't experience/grasp 9/11 realtime other than hearing their parents and teachers bring it up from time to time. The 2nd graders bush was reading to are college students.

‘2 Million Bikers’ roar into D.C. to honor 9/11, protest Muslim rally

Thousands of bikers from around the country roared into the D.C. area on Wednesday in a show of support for Sept. 11 victims and in solidarity against a controversial Muslim rally on the Mall.

The 2 Million Bikers to DC ride might have fallen short of 2 million strong, but the numbers were impressive. A line of shining chrome and steel bikes stretched about a third of a mile from the starting point at the Harley Davidson of Washington store just outside the District in Prince George’s County.

The bikers began departing from the store at about 10:30 in staggered groups of 50, stopped for traffic lights and taking an hour or so to get on the road.

The ride was complicated by the fact that federal and local authorities denied a permit that would have offered the riders a police escort through traffic — a sore spot with organizers who thought the denial was for political purposes.

“We’re here for 9-11,” said national ride coordinator Belinda Bee. “We are going to have a peaceful ride. … But there are people who are sick and tired of their rights and liberties being taken away.”

The National Park Service has denied any political motivation for refusing the permit, which ride organizers sought last month. The Park Service earlier this year granted a permit to a Muslim group planning a rally Wednesday to call attention to social justice issues.

The American Muslim Political Action Committee has scheduled a rally to draw attention to what they call unfair fear of Muslims after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Ms. Bee said the ride was originally set up to counter the rally and show respect for the victims of that day.

Dan O’Brien, 54, of Mansfield, Ohio, said he had been “looking for a ride like this” to honor the Sept. 11 victims, but the rally also spurred him to join.

“This is very disgraceful,” he said. “They picked a day precious to the United States and its citizens.”

That's rough, my condolences. 9/12 would be my dad's birthday had he not offed himself a few years ago. This is a rough week in more ways than one.

With all due respect, the fact is we have almost 3,000 dead citizens. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys hanging out in an airport one day decided to go hop on a plane and knock down our buildings. What difference, at this point, does it make?!

It is pretty weird to think that the time elapsed is the same from now as it is from 1989.

I'll always remember being in homeroom of H.S when this all started happening, watching on TV. My first class was "International Affairs", and I'll never forget the douche-bag 25 year old teacher with his corduroy blazer making us take a test, and turning off the TVs, claiming that it wasn't really that important or something like that. Or not important enough to push the test back... In an "International Affairs" class.

The next day, we had to write a 3 page paper about or response and our feelings. This was just a day after, and I repeatedly referenced it as the events that happened on September 10th. He gave me an F, claiming that an event this important, you get the date right... But, apparently you can't witness it live the day before because it "Wasn't that important"

Call me slow (YOU'RE SLOW), but I noticed a heightened tension around the Navy base I am working on. More Humvees and APC's patrolling. For a while I was wondering what was going on or if Obama had gone and done something stupid with Syria. Then I remembered......

I was camped up in the mountains. I turned on the radio to see if I could get any station and found a rock station from Sun Valley. Peter Jennings was droning on in his boring voice about a plane hitting a tower. Huh? Then he said wait wut? Another plane has hit the other tower. I knew that was terrorists and told my wife I think we are at war. Right about then the station cut in and said and now, back to music. A old classic rock song came on. I didn't get to see video of the day until Friday night.

Oh, and I was right beside the towers in 1976. It still gives me chills thinking how close I came to dying.
