Horrible day three years ago. Unthinkable devastation ... life and national property.

Tenative day two years ago. Do you remember wondering what, if anything, would happen that day? Its a shame the terrorists got us that day. Not gonna happen again though. Thats when we start to get pi$$ed.

Last year we feel better, most of us anyway. We watch what our neighbors and friends are doing in Afghanastan and Iraq. Its a good thing we are still pi$$ed. They deserve what is coming.

Tomorrow, we live in a country who is pretty much divided between pi$$sed and defiance. Those on the side of defiance need to remember what OUR COUNTRY has gone thru. It was not easy. It was not trivial. It was an attack on what we consider to be humanity. Take that seriously. If you don't, the next attack may be in your town.

Tomorrow I will reflect. I will look for the positive and cry for the lost lives. How can you not and still say you are an American? Any freedom loving individual should surely understand this freedom is not really free. The simple process for me to type this would get me killed in China. Durn glad I am not in China.

God Bless The USA. Support The Military. Remember All Lost Lives Like They Were Your Children.

Peanut, not to get too political at this somber time, but lets remeber that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Even tho last survey showed 45% of americans still beleive it even after Cheney and Bush came out and stated that Iraq and 9/11 were not cpnnected. Afghanastan, yes they were most definatly involved, Iraq, no.

Well Hickory if it makes you feel better, you just go on deluding yourself.

wow unbeleivable Len, just repeating what the White house said.. gues people would rather beleive what they want to beleive rather than trust a fact.

The horrors of that day tore something from my life. Only the cobwebs of senility may allow me to forget.

would you believe this is the first time I have seen the complete story of the happenings of 9/11 and seen the towers go down. Guess I missed all the anniversary dates . On Sept 11 in 2001 I was in the intensive care wing of Mary Washington hospital in Va, having had abdominal surgery late Monday. Was laying there with compression sleeves on my legs, tubes down my throat and in my privates. Ivs in my arms and in terrible pain, wondering how I got in this mess. The Tv was on, but I didn't really get what was going on. Wasn't until Friday it all came to me, but I was going home and all that was happening to me sort of took preference for quite a while. It is now all the more horrible to me, we owe them no compassion whatsoever

I remember, and still cry when I think about. Haven't watched much TV since, don't care for the news.

My prayers and thoughts for the families and friend of those involved.

how many of you remember EXACTLY where and what you were doing? I was finishing the RF tire on the 8640 when the first plane hit; I had the RR tire broke down and 1/2 way off on when the 2nd plane hit. I was on the road that day doing several service calls and what I recall is there was ABSOLUTELY NO traffic on the road that day. very errie...

Patria and me were on our Europe trip and on 9-11 we were in the tiny country of Liechtenstein ( between Switserland and Austria )We were taking a walk in the city of Vaduz and everything seemed normal. Obviously most people hadn't heard the terrible news. When we came back in our hotel a friend of mine from Germany called me on my cell( it was around 6 pm local time - around midday Eastern time ) and asked whether I heard the news about the attack in NYC. We turned on the tv and spent all evening watching CNN and couldn't believe this was for real.

We were supposed to fly to PR on the 13th or 14th but couldn't get out of Amsterdam until the 21 st.. Security was so tight. The check in and all security checks took about 5 hours. We were interviewed at least two times and stories were checked. We sure were glad with this tight security..

Was at morning meeting at work- Reception area TV on CNN showed 2nd plane hitting, most people figured it wasn't accident then. I just thought it didn't have to happen - could have had Isreali procedures in place to stop skijackers. Pentagon hit was a concern - mother said her cousin was on far side of crash site-OK word came 2 days later. RN.

I was getting one of my crews started on roofing a house when the planes hit and when they towers collapsed I was getting another one of my crews started repairing a commercial building roof. I got back to the office right when the 2nd building fell.

We hadn't started farming yet so we were still asleeping in...I heard the phone ring and a voice was sreaming from my answering was my brother...He was hollering.."KAthy...KAthy...Get up and turn on your TV"...I thought "yeah I am going to kill Joe..but I did get up and turn on the Tv...there is was..I saw the second plane hit the tower..
I will never forget the feeling I had that moment...that day...I told my husband "life as we have known it is over"...and in ways it was...
We went to try and get some gasoline and the cars were piled up waiting for the same thing...prices were climbing by the hour for the gasoline...It was a terrible day...KAtG

On the west coast, it was pretty early in the day. That day I didn't have the radio on at all on my way to work. I was making up new lyrics to fit the Herman's Hermits song "Mrs Brown you've got a lovely daughter". I got to work and heard the news. By that time both planes had hit the WTC. Since we were developing a satellite TV system for aircraft, we just happened to have a satellite TV hookup in a conference room. We all just stood and stared at the news for a couple hours. We didn't get much done that day.

I remember Mike, I had just finished my morning route and when I walked into the drivers lounge at work there musta been 500 drivers all standing there watching the t.v., gape-jawed and several were crying and praying. Folks holding onto one another. It was Very Disturbing to say the least : (

Today was one of the nicest days we've had in weeks : ) It was around 89 and *crossing fingers* it hasn't rained yet today. Thank God for the small miracles too cuz there's alot of folks with flooding already and they need a lil time to allow the water to recede before we get hit by Ivan. It also allowed the folks who are getting the power back on, cable hooked back up, and the roofers to get alot of work done today too. Still alot of debris to be seen around town and lots and lots of out of state trucks with just a simple trailer with plywood sides around town that are hauling limbs and stuff to the drop-off sites. I've lived here all my 36 years and don't ever remember having a hurricane season like this one. I'll be glad when it's finally over this year : )
