    I'm gonna wear one of my USA shirts to college today, I'm an American (and Canadian) citizen.

    Seems like just about everyone remembers exactly where they were and what they were doing on that day, eh?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Yup I was working LAD at the Phila. Fire Museum. Sad day for all, but like they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Just to help us not forget. Here is a story about a father who lost his two sons (firemen) in the attack. There is a link at the top to hear him tell the story in his own voice.

    the wiki site is too brief, does not tell his story. Christian site or not, my link tells his story.

    I'm sure there's a site somewhere that's a bit less religion-based that has a more complete story.

    I just realized that, for no particular reason, I'm wearing a Canadian flag shirt today.

    Let's not also forget the first responders that are still suffering from the effects of the aftermath.
    They didn't have to be there, they chose to help others.

    Iím sure the firefighters, police and others who responded that day got their sense of strength and bravery from varied sources. In my mind that some got it from their religions simply speaks to the power for good that religions can have.


    I can only hope
    to emerge from the shadows
    of towers and wars
    I have to think that the name for that source is called unconditional love, it can be wrapped in any cover, but I believe that is the name for it. Thank you KG.

    very sad. i could only imagine the scene on these planes.

The plane is making jerky movements. I don't think the pilot is flying the plane. I think we are going down. I think they intend to go to Chicago or someplace and fly into a building. Don't worry, Dad. If it happens, it'll be very fast....Oh my God... oh my God, oh my God."

    As the call abruptly ended, Hanson's father heard a woman screaming.
