Never forget that day.

Never forget the victims, the NYC police and firefighters, and in addition the 97 Canadian solders who have given their lives in Afghanistan as a result.

On a happier note today is also my wife's birthday.

Or the troops still there, and those going back, as my son, for his second tour of Iraq.

Thanks, Diva. We can never forget for a second. Shame on the NYC newspapers that didn't take note of this very important day in American history (Wall Street Journal, New York Times). Men and women are putting their lives on the line every day and many are giving the ultimate sacrifice of their life because of this attack on our country. It will remain one of the darkest days in our history.

Today let's all take a few moments for remembrance and reflection. May the world never see another day of such horror.

Thank you for reminding us here, Diva.

I have seen that lots of times and it always brings tears. I certainly will never forget.

I will never forget. The tragedy happened on what would have been my 30th wedding anniversary to my second husband! Maybe that's why we divorced!?!

One of my friends had an appointment that morning at 9 in World Trade Center. At 8 it was cancelled.

She lost 28 friends including the lady who phoned her.

She moved from Manhattan Island later that year. To Idaho.

I'm looking at, and I see "Complete Coverage ...9/11, 7 Years On"

I'm imagining the print edition had a lot of coverage. Did you actually see a Times, or did someone just tell you that?

In a blog in the Chicago Sun-Times today it was pointed out that in a few years, college freshman will be able to say they really don't remember much about 9/11, except what they read in school.
In 1963, I was 3 years old but I know about Kennedy's assassination because of how it affected the lives of my parents and my teachers. Their interest gave me a love of current/world events and history.
Who teaches the children of today the truth about what goes on around us? Too often we hide our heads, say it isn't our problem, or try to ignore reality.

The radio station that I listen to each morning was commenting that those two newspapers failed to make 9/11 the lead story of the day. No red, white or blue banner, etc., no mention on the front page was the conversation I heard. They specifically mentioned the NY Times and Wall Street Journal. Their point was that it belonged on the front page, not a story about a pig with lipstick or whatever. I didn't see either newspaper and didn't go online either. Their interest wasn't in the story appearing on another page. Sorry if I didn't communicate that very well.
I just looked at NY Times online as well and there's darn little attention paid to 9/11 and the banner doesn't reflect it at all though I can't recall the banner ever changing at this newspaper. The point being a litttle block on the front page referring the reader to an article inside doesn't do the day justice in my opinion.

I tend to disagree. The presidential campaign is news. The things we do to commemorate an anniversary are (tomorrow's) news. But the fact that it is the anniversary is not news, any more than on January 1, the fact that it's New Year's Day is news. The headlines should be for things we might not have known were we not paying attention.

I had Sean Hannity on earlier and he was way over the top on this as only he can be. By the time I got home I was ready to puke. What a butthead!

Ins Hannity and Faux News? Why is this not a surprise?

Shame on them for not wearing their flag pins. Obviously the New York Times and their readers care nothing about 9/11.

Maybe it's just that they don't want to
give the Taliban the satisfaction of
knowing it's still the biggest US Tragedy

The History Channel featured incredibly moving documentaries on the events of September 11th last night. I hope they'll do it again next year. Never forget!
