2,977. Our differences be damned today.
12 fucking years. Wow!
I wonder what wackiness is planned for today?
this date in 2001 and 2006 means more to me than just an event in American History, five years later I buried my Mother.
theres no way I will ever forget September 11th.
1 year since American citizens were murdered in Bengazi as well. Don't for get that.
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.
Today is my 14th anniversary. Fuck you Bin Laden.
No past or present alerts from DHS...
I may have posted this last year but oh well
Here's my brother with the 9/11 memorial be designed in own hometown, and an amazing picture the photographer at the unveiling took.
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?!
sorry to hear fella....
I totally regret not going to Shanksville when I was up in Maryland a few months ago...
I regret not going before I moved.
How can we? The bullshit just goes on and on and on and on...........
If you ever forget your anniversary I suspect she will cut your head off on video.
Sorry about that!
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.
1- What was the song?
2- Thank Jeebus you're okay sir!
This picture was taken just before the eagle was killed and eaten by a larger eagle.
