Today, 9/11, is truly a day to remember. It's a day which changed all of our lives and how we look at the world. Thanks to the Military, the leaders who have many hard decisions to make, the policemen, the firefighters and all of those responsible for trying to keep America safe. Thanks for all of the sacrifices which are made. We are truly blessed to live in America. God bless our country and the leaders. Our hearts and prayers are with all of those who have lost family members on 9/11, and the Military who fight and have given their lives to keep us free and safe. GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!

I was hoping Sploofus was going to put the RED, White and Blue up on the banner today. These colors don't run! And what Marilyn said, "GOD BLESS THE USA!"

I watched the documentary drama on BBC1 last Thursday evening. It effectively portrayed the inside story of those who worked in the Twin Towers on 9/11. Just another work day of meetings and presentations etc., and then the stuff of nightmares happened. It was both disturbing and heartbreaking to watch how colleagues tried to escape, help each other down endless flights of stairs, and the last words of love sent to relatives on mobiles. It seems like yesterday, yet five years have passed. Time will never diminish the horror of it all; the memories of the dead, and the courage of those who had to endure that day from Hell. God bless America, and the victims of 9/11.

One of my friends "signs" for the courts and investment brokers, etc. and lived on Manhattan. She had an appointment at 9 am on 9/11 in one of the towers. But she was called at 8 and was cancelled. Needless to say, the caller was a victim, along with 27 other of her friends. She has moved to Idaho and was married 9/11 two years ago, turning a wretched memorial day into one of celebration. Of course she is haunted by her survival. God bless the USA. I flew my flag today. Did you?

Todd Beamer, one of the passengers who took on the terrorists, went to our church in a Chicago suburb as a young man; he was in my brother's Sunday school class. Todd grew into a strong husband and father who died 5 years ago attempting to protect others from evil. Please remember Todd's family and the families of all who died that day in your thoughts and prayers.

This is a vent...

I, too, have been moved by the link posted by Diva…

I, too, can remember the place I stood when I learned of the horrors of the airplanes striking the Towers, the Pentagon and the thwarted attempt of the assumed attack on the White House…

But, I would be remiss if I didn’t write of my feelings on this, the anniversary of the start of the lies…

When our nation “invaded” the country of Afghanistan, there was purpose. We were there to right a wrong (an eye for an eye, so to speak), to find a “leader (and as much as we, as Americans hate to admit it, he is) who incited such hatred for our ethos, that others followed and acted.

I was as horrified (and still am) by the attack on our nation.

For our national leaders to use 9-11 as an excuse to invade a country where, yes, I will be the first to admit, there were gross human rights desecrations occurring, (but weren’t there other countries, other leaders as well?) is an abomination to the memory of those who lost their lives in the attacks.

I, as an American, am ashamed of misdirection of the facts…of the fact that we missed Bin Laden, that we evacuated his family from the US and detained innocents (and are doing so to this day), that our president used 9-11 to start a conflict that has claimed (to the date of this opinion) over 3,000 American lives (including injuries of those who will never walk again or enjoy signing their names), plus areported minimum of 10, 770 Iraqis dead (women, children, baddies, et al).

I am sorry, to those who think that I am desecrating the memory of those lost in the attacks…I, too, mourn our loss…of innocence and trust and camaraderie with our fellow people…of we as Americans losing what was unique to us: Our ability to embrace those who were seeking to find their own lives, as Americans, just as our Grand-parents (or our great-grand-parents) did…

Let me remind you all of those great words written by bunch of white, slave-owning, land-owning, disenfranchising (remember women couldn’t vote) men (but I do recognize their wisdom in the openness of the wording of this document…)

…”that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Maybe it’s time to change the regime…

I am very sad that you would turn a Memorial to all the people slaughtered on 9/11 by radical Islamic terrorists into a political rant.

I'm glad you can exercise your Freedom of Speech.

Phitzy...I'm glad to see you are using your freedom of speech here and you have your own views as does everyone else here. My nephew is a Marine as is my husband and brother-in-law. And it is because of them and other Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Coast Guard personnel (men and women) who have fought so you can have the right to your opinion and voice it here. As I do.
I do not support war but I do support our servicemen and women and to them I take off my hat and say THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICES FOR ALL OF US....
The daughter, wife, niece and aunt of veterans...
