Remembering and Honoring the Victims of 9/11
« on: September 11, 2016, 11:47:10 am »
Today is 15th anniversary of 9/11, the devastating terrorist attack that killed over 3000 people and injured more than 6000 when 3 planes were hijacked.

We will always remember our fallen heroes, those killed in the attack, and those who have lost loved ones.

My prayers and thoughts are for those affected by this awful attack. <3

I'm honestly surprised I haven't heard or seen more about it yet today. Americans are usually in your face about this. Of course, I haven't read any news yet or watched any TV, but still. It's a pretty serious day and I'd expect more talk :/
But anyway
Yeah 15th anniversary already and it still kinda stings to think about. Thoughts out to anyone who lost someone on that day, and a big thank you to the first response team.

I don't remember September 11th, 2001. I was only one month old on that fateful day however, I do know people who have experienced. Both my half-siblings were at school the day of the attacks. They remember everything stopping and watching something that seemed unbelievable. My mother was home that day and she actually woke up to seeing the north tower of the World Trade Center on fire when she turned on the T.V. She at first thought it was a movie of some sort, but she called my father who was working at the hospital to see what was happening. My father caught United Airlines Flight 175 crash into the other tower. My Spanish teacher was actually in Manhattan the day the attacks took place and several other people have their own nightmares of that sorrowful day. Today, we've built two new World Trade Center towers. The One World Trade Center and it's massive companion stand tall above the New York skyline, a symbol that you may harm us, but we recover fast and come back even better than we were before. We shall never forget September 11th, 2001, the people who lost their lives in the attack and the following war, and the towers which no longer stand. May God protect America, that she may never experience such events again.

Yeah it sucked. Being in a school at the time when all the light suddenly shut down and the classroom phones rang. The teachers walked over and then covered their mouths. Without telling us anything the entire school was placed on lockdown for over an hour. We sat in silence all afraid because despite not knowing what's going on, our teacher's face showed that it was something bad. The bell rang and when we came outside everyone's parents were standing there or rushing to get their kids.

We didn't find out what had happened until a few years later when my mother sat us down and explained what had happened. The school was only 20 minutes away from the Pentagon

I missed this thread yesterday, I just wanted to say how much respect I have for all the firefighters and medical workers who ran into the buildings during the attacks. On Saturday, I went to a memorial stair-climb where firefighters from all around the country climbed up a stairway in a building enough times to equal the height of the North Tower. The climbers had to climb all the way up the stairs three and a half times to equal 110 floors, the height of the tower. They had to do all of this in full firefighting gear, including a huge protective jacket and oxygen tanks. It took two and a half hours for all the climbers to finish their climb, and many of them collapsed in the middle of the climb and had trouble continuing. However, although they had the option to, not a single climber tapped out. I find it so difficult to imagine all those brave firefighters running into the towers, knowing they were not going to return, and did all they could to save people's lives, all while wearing the same heavy safety gear that these people were wearing and climbing the same amount of stairs. I just can't imagine ever doing anything like that. I have so much support and honor for people who risk their lives to do things like that. I can't even imagine what that must be like...

I'm not really sure what to say since I was only a few months old when this happened. My thoughts and prayers are to all the victims of this attack

I was 3 when the attacks happened, I have no memory of the day but it was an extremely sad tragedy. I saw the memorial in NYC while I was on vacation and it was so sad seeing the names of the people who lost their lives

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


"We will never forget."

May those souls be never forgotten. God Bless America....
