NFT: September 11, 2001 NEVER FORGET

Jints in Carolina : 9/11/2017 8:38 am
In memory to all that lost their lives on 9/11/2001

I lived only miles from The Pentagon that day.

Puts last nights loss in perspective.

RIP to all who perished, WTC, Pentagon

the planes that fell, and the first responders who fell ill.

The two common elements - 9/11 was a beautiful sunny say here in NYC, and it was after a terrible primetime showing by the Giants.
Amen

My thoughts exactly as I left home this morning
I remember  
trueblueinpw : 9/11/2017 8:55 am : link
I'll never forget how terrified my wife was as we walked from midtown where we worked to try and cross one of the bridges into Brooklyn where I lived. There were jet fighters overhead, "that's a good thing, those are our guys up there" I told my wife. She would duck into doorways, unconvinced by my words, as we hurried downtown. I'll never forget the dirt on the bottom of my wife's feet after we walked back from midtown to my apartment in Brooklyn, she left the office in her work shoes. I'll never forget the silence of everyone on the Manhattan Bridge as we crossed over to Brooklyn with the towers crashed and burning behind us. Fellow New Yorkers gave us water bottles as we came off the bridge and walked into Brooklyn.

I'll never forget that aweful smell that seemed to linger for weeks. The dust that was all over my apartment for days, I won't forget wiping that away. I'll never forget going for my morning run and hearing military aircraft overhead during the days and even weeks after that day, I never thought I'd hear those sounds over my home in NYC.

I'll never forget the heros who ran into those buildings as everyone else was running out. What bravery! I'll never forget how people jumped out of the burning towers, how awful that must have been. I'll never forget the transcripts I read of the people who called their loved ones before they died.

There is much to remember.
Maybe we can link the 9/11 thread from that day?

Crazy story of what a small world it is  
Stu11 : 9/11/2017 9:10 am : link
I'm at my son's Little League game this year and my wife and I are chatting with one of his teammate's parents and his grandmother. It turns out her brother(obviously the kid's uncle) was the man in the red bandanna. I coached the teammate's sister(who's named after him) in softball on my daughter's team and didn't even know it at the time about 5 years ago. The parent was telling us interesting stuff about the gov. paying for her and her mom to go to Guantanamo Bay for the trials. My heart goes out to all the victims, heroes and survivors from that day. Our world has changed so much in the past 16 years. A whole generation is evolving that either wasn't born yet or does not remember the events of that day. Its incredible.

Can't believe it's been 16 years already. I had 3 small children and have to say I was fearful of their safety. So much unknown at the time it happened and the fear of more attacks. The mail anthrax attacks came soon after and I remember having to stop my kids from running out to the mailman and grabbing the mail after the Hamilton nj post office was contaminated which our mail comes from.
Thinking today of all the men and women  
mfsd : 9/11/2017 9:42 am : link
who work hard every day to keep us safe...military members home and abroad, police, firemen, first responders, and the clandestine services like FBI, CIA, etc.

So much time, effort, resources dedicated - and lives sacrificed - so we can wake up today and worry about things like our jobs, our families, a lousy Giants loss to the Cowboys.

Remembering 9/11 helps me put life in proper perspective - I'm one of many who's pretty damn lucky to have the life and freedoms we get to enjoy in this country.

And taking my Cowboys fan buddy to lunch today bc I lost our bet last night doesn't seem so bad in the end

Thoughts and prayers to all of you who lost friends and loved ones that awful day
My daughter's teacher asked me to write an account of my experience

Now living in OH, they don't have much firsthand experience but are still remembering the day. Her school still has fireman and policeman visit the school today to honor them.
RIP
