11 Years Later … September 11, 2001, Do Not Ever Forget What Happened that Fateful Day … Always Remember the Heroes



In  Memory of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the heroes that inspired a nation. It has been 11 years to the day of that fateful September morning in 2001 where in an instant our lives and world changed forever. More than 3000 people lost their lives in NYC at the World Trade Center, in Washington, DC as flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, PA where heroes aboard Flight 93 took matters into their hands and said “NO to terrorism”.  We saw pure evil and we saw the best of people. The heroism of those who responded to the terrible terrorist and cowardice acts will never be forgotten as well. Fireman, police, paramedics and first responders running into buildings to help their fellow man, perishing in their efforts.

Remember in your head the evil  that caused this day; however, always remember in your heart the heroes that rose up to show what makes America, America.  God Bless the men, women, victims and heroes who were lost on 9/11. God Bless the families that had their lives forever altered on that terrible day. As the years go by, we continue and will always we celebrate those who died far too soon. Too many children grew up without dads and moms.  So many brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and grand parents lost.

As George W. Bush stated, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot shake the foundation of America.  These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.” Today our Nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, And we responded with the best of America.”

To the the many Americans who lost loved ones, knew someone who was affected by the terrorist attacks and those who simply just rose up to support in prayers those who died that day, please do not ever forget. I will ask all … Do you Remember?

GOD BLESS YOU ALL. We remember Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham, Jeremy Glick, Sandra Bradshaw, Tom Burnett and all the heroes aboard Flight 93. Average Americans who rose up against terrorism, LETS ROLL!!!

Initial Bulletins as it transpired that September Day

Tribute to 9-11


If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

God bless the victims of 9-11, their families and loved ones. God bless the heroes who gave their lives for others. You shall never be forgot. You represent the best of America.

      It was the most horrible day here in New York but it was also an incredible day. The whole world got to see the love and caring Americans have for each other. Rescue teams and emergency workers from all over the country immediately began coming to NY. Ordinary people risking their lives to help one another. The NYPD and the FDNY were heroic, brave and simply unbelievable. The world, and especially the enemy, were shown that Americans could not be divided. Obama is trying very hard to change that. In addition to making us defenseless he is trying so hard to divide us.

      Thank you SM for posting this very important story. Two such events are embedded in my memory where the United States was attacked. Sunday, December 7, 1941 and this one.

      We put together the finest armed forces to beat the Japanese,Germans and Italians and made the Japs pay the price for attacking us.

      We need to continue our efforts to destroy the ugly muslim jihad movement and free the world from their worthless cult.

      I agree. The sting felt in the hearts of Americans on that fateful September day eleven years ago must not lessen. It would be an utter betrayal to the victims and their families. It would be risk to National security.

      The underlying truth encompassing the unspeakable horrow … the underlying truth regarding the unrelenting Islamic enemy whose ideology demands the continued call within and without of US borders for the destuction of not only Israel but all of Western civilization … must not be forgotten.

      Red … thank you for the amazing tribute honoring the fallen … honoring their families. It is so appreciated.

      Palestinians celebrating the fall of the twin towers on 911

      American Muslims celebrating 9/11

      Was watching a program “behind the scenes on 9/11″ on Smithsonian yesterday, amazing stuff.

      No matter how many years ago 9/11 was, it still evokes raw emotion seeing and listening to the personal stories of some of the survivors of that day as well as the stories of those lost and their family members.

      Never Forget!

      Thanks for posting.

      I think of this everytime this “person” crawls out from under the rock from where she dwells with a new book the neocons can’t wait to quote from:
      New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton accused commentator Ann Coulter of making a “vicious, mean-spirited attack” on outspoken 9/11 widows whom the television pundit described as “self-obsessed” and enjoying their husbands’ deaths.

      Coulter writes in a new book, “Godless: The Church of Liberalism,” that a group of New Jersey widows whose husbands perished in the World Trade Center act “as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them.”

      She also wrote, “I’ve never seen people enjoying their husbands’ deaths so much.”

      Clinton, who has felt Coulter’s criticism over the years, responded on Wednesday.

      “Perhaps her book should have been called ‘Heartless,’ ” the senator said. “I know a lot of the widows and family members who lost loved ones on 9/11. They never wanted to be a member of a group that is defined by the tragedy of what happened.”

      The New York Democrat and former first lady said she found it “unimaginable that anyone in the public eye could launch a vicious, mean-spirited attack on people whom I’ve known over the last four and a half years to be concerned deeply about the safety and security of our country.”

      New York’s Republican Gov. George Pataki also voiced anger and surprise at Coulter’s words.

      “I was really stunned and I don’t think it’s at all fair or accurate,” Pataki said Wednesday in New York.

      “I have spoken with many, many grieving family members and the hurt is real, the pain is real, the suffering four and a half years later has not lessened to any appreciable degree,” he said.

      Coulter appeared Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show, and stuck by her stance, saying the women used their grief “to make a political point.”

      Her criticism was aimed at four New Jersey women whom she dubbed “The Witches of East Brunswick,” after the town where two of them live.

      They have spent the years since the 2001 terror attacks supporting an independent commission to examine government failures before the attack, and in the 2004 presidential campaign they endorsed Democrat John Kerry.

      The women are Kristen Breitweiser, Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg and Patty Casazza.

      The women, who are still pushing for changes in how the government guards against future attacks, issued a joint statement after Coulter’s television appearance.

      “We have been slandered. Contrary to Ms. Coulter’s statements, there was no joy in watching men that we loved burn alive. There was no happiness in telling our children that their fathers were never coming home again. We adored these men and miss them every day,” the women said
      SM: I write a post on 9-11 and a solemn remembrance and this is what you write? Dude, you are a sad sack. You really need help. I pray for you.

      On that day, Muslims who worked in stores on Long Island,, NY were cheering, dancing and celebrating. A friend in Brooklyn said people from the middle east who lived in her neighborhood were also celebrating in the streets [Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY]. This behavior was displayed throughout the city.

      Taliban Releases ‘Victorious’ 9/11 Message: ‘Everyone Considers It Their Right to Kill’ Americans
      Posted on September 11, 2012



      White House Stands by Biden Statement That Taliban Isn’t U.S. Enemy
      Published December 19, 2011

      The White House on Monday defended Vice President Joe Biden for saying that the Taliban isn’t an enemy of the United States despite the years spent fighting the militant Islamic group that gave a home to Al Qaeda and its leader Usama bin Laden while he plotted the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

      Biden said that the U.S. is on a dual track in Afghanistan — keep the pressure on Al Qaeda and support a government that is strong enough to “negotiate with and not be overthrown by the Taliban.”

      “Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical,” Biden said. “There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.”


    9. Klaasend on September 11th, 2012 5:12 pm

      Paula – I never heard about Muslims celebrating in NY, do you have a link to that? Surely it was in the news, that would have been big!

    10. Tamikosmom on September 11th, 2012 7:14 pm

      For the most part … I believe that American Muslims as a whole were silent regarding the horror of 911. Leaders of American Muslim organizations did issue statements condemn the attack.

      Nevertheless … one of the strategies of Islam is to peacefully work within a democratic system to gradually transform the Rupublic to an Islamic State.




    11. Scared Monkeys on September 11th, 2012 8:43 pm

      #8 Klaas, not sure about in the US, but there were reports that it was done else where.


      Actually Klaas, here is an account of Muslims in the US celebrating:

      * Remember Who Celebrated & Cheered:

      Muslims around the world–Palestinian Muslims on the streets of Ramallah, Palestinian Muslim Sunnis on the streets of Patterson, New Jersey, Shi’ite Muslims who were waiters and staff at a Middle Eastern restaurant in West Bloomfield, Michigan, Lebanese, Iraqi, and Iranian Shi’ite Muslims all over Dearbornistan. And, as I noted, the Pew Research Center notes that at least a third of these “American” (in name only) Muslims openly support Al-Qaeda and suicide bombings against Americans, which means they still celebrate.

      Thank you. I am too young to have been around for Pearl Harbor; however, I did have an uncle survive that date that will live in infamy.

      SM was actually born out of 9-11 after Tom and I contemplated what we could do to never have America put their collective heads in the sand and always speak out. Thus the name SM is actually a misnomer, it represents just the opposite to always see, speak and hear.

      God Bless,

      Agreed. I grew up, went to high school and college in the shadows of NYC. Many alumni perished that day and some I personally knew.

      I worked in Manhattan and at the time of the terrible terrorist tragedy lived in a New England town that saw the murder of several that were on the flights that crashed into the twin towers.

      A friend of mine lived only because he was late getting his daughter to day care. That is the only reason why he is alive today as he worked at CF above the impact zone.

      I can honestly saw I will remember this day like it happened yesterday until the day I die.

    14. Klaasend on September 11th, 2012 9:16 pm

      Red – yes I remember seeing them celebrate in other countries and I read your link but I still find it hard to believe that the people in NY or NJ would PUT UP with anyone celebrating. I would think there would have been a HUGE fight. I don’t remember anything like that but I could be wrong.
