Never Forgive, Never Forget

Eight years ago, cowardly terrorists killed over 3000 Americans. I fear Americans are forgetting already. I myself have become used to the sight of young American men and women in our country's uniforms, transiting the airport enroute to dangerous places to man the ramparts. I will not again, let the sight of these representatives of America's best, fail to remind me as to why they are moving through the airport.

I hope our country continues the fight in spite of the enemies within our own borders, or we shall see such sights as the one above more often.

God Bless those who left us on this day.

I still feel saddened by the thought of being trapped in that building. The events of 9-11 have affected us all

Dear Chartlie6 (Dom):

I grew up with a mile of the World Trade Center, and watched it bewing build from my high school classroom window. Leslie and I brought relatives of hers to the observatory, one month to the day before this horrible attack.

We returned to the site a couple of months after the attack. I cannot begin to describe to you the crushing sadness I felt, looking at the ruins, and at the dozens of refridgerator truck/trailers sitting on lower Manhattan streets waiting to receive fragmented human cargo.

It is only recently that I can think about that day without succumbing to irrational feelings of revenge. Regretably, this incident is far from over. The human roaches that made that day a reality are certain to surface again... And when they do, I hope we get them all this time.

Fondest regards,
