    not something that should be treated like we treat 12/7 which happened 62 years ago. It could happen again if we forget

    I work overnights and had just started napping when a friend called me and told me to watch TV.......I asked what station and he said any station. He called shortly after the 2nd tower had been hit. We talked about what was happening and then suddenly the 1st tower collapsed. I was in no mood to talk and watched as the second tower collapsed as well. I was crying a river because I was both deeply hurt and raging mad. I had to get out of the apt and drove around for a while. I stopped at Taco Bell for lunch. It was packed but no one was talking except to give their order. I still feel guilty that I was stuffing my face so soon after this horrible tragedy.

    I was at school. I had just emailed my ex-gf, wishing her a happy birthday (what a great B-day huh). Then I logged onto DT and saw FFiB had just posted something about "an airplane has just crashed into the World Trade Center".

    I was actually training for a new job as a data center manager, and the news came in. I think that we all are still in a little shock about the whole thing.

    I will say this. Before Sept. 11th, the vocal Americans that are ashamed to be citizens of the greatest country in the world certainly seemed to be speaking for most Americans. I, even, deep down inside certainly did not feel a wellspring of patriotism. However, to see the outpouring of affection for the victims and their families; to see the rage and anger eminating from us as a united whole. That brought tears to my eyes. I truly believe that the nation is more patriotic, but I also believe that the nation was always patriotic.

    Some of us were just afraid to show it.

    Happy Patriot Day everyone.

    I was just returning home, had taken the day off for an appointment... turned on the TV just as the second plane hit the tower....
    I was glued to the TV the rest of the day... the rage, sorrow, and feelings of helplessness were overwhelming.

    Never Forget... :cry:

    I was at school, in TV class, when the Choir teacher came in and turned on the TV, we all started yelling at him, and he was like "A plane hit the World Trade Center," so we all started watching it and when the second plane hit the whole school (2200) fell silent every TV in the building was on and I don't think a single class really went on that day.

    Thanks to K-Rob for the Awesome Sig!

    At about 10:30 that morning, while everything was all chaos and disbelief, two of my co-workers decided to go ahead with their previously planned wedding cermemony, which was held at the county courthouse a few blocks away. It struck me as a beautiful symbol of how life could go on in the midst of such upheaval.

    We Remember 9/11


    This week our country will come upon the second anniversary of the tragedy of September 11th.

    We remember the days that followed and that one evening where we all lit candles by our front doors, on our front lawns, our porches, our decks.

    This year, let us join together to show that we will not forget those innocent people that lost their lives that morning. The passengers, the pilots, the
    people that were working at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Let us join together to show our appreciation for the brave firefighters, police
    officers and EMT personnel who ran to help others.

    To show our remembrance, our strength, our resolve and our love of our country, let's join together again. On the evening of September 11th, rain or shine,
    light up the front of your home, your yard, your street, your walkway, your porch, your front steps.
    Take time and reme! mber the events of 9/11, how deeply you were moved, scared, touched. Pray that our nation continues the fight on terrorism so that
    events such as this do not happen again on our soil.

    Pass this along and hopefully by 9/11 it will have reached many throughout the USA and perhaps even the world. What a statement to our nation, our
    neighbors and especially to those lost on that tragic day.

    We have not forgotten.

    Light some candles the evening of September 11th.
