A VIDEO that you Must See of September 11, 2001 … 15 Years Later (VIDEO) We All Need to Remember What Happened That Day
There are things that happen in life that we can never become complacent with. The terror attacks of 9-11 are just one of the moments in time. Don’t let people ever tell you that we should not have to see the visions, hear the sounds and feel the emotions of that day.
September 11, 2016 … 15 Years Have Passed Since the Islamic Terror Attacks on America … Have You Forgotten? Please Honor the Fallen & Please Don’t Ever Forget
15 years since September 11 …
It is just hard to believe that it has been 15 years since that beautiful, peaceful Fall September day when America was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists and the world would be changed forever. The horror and the tragedy that saw nearly 3000 people die as of both towers of the World Trade Center falling in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, DC under attack and hit by a plane and the heroes of flight 93 downing the plane in a filed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania saving countless many. Have you forgotten?
I ask you on this 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks to hot only remember the victims and heroes of 9-11, but to honor them as well. The reality is that those lost on that fateful day could have been any of us. And today, some 15 years later after America was attacked by radical Islam, we are still dealing with this menace. We can not only remember those that have fallen, the best way that we can honor all those who lost their lives that September day is rid the world once and for all of this vile evil. God Bless all who perished that day and a special prayer to the family, friends and loved ones of those lost that day.
We remember and honor those who perished on AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 11, AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 77, UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 175, UNITED AIRLINES FLIGHT 93, the World Trade Center in NYC and at the Pentagon in Washington, DC.

September 11, 2001 – As It Happened – The Initial Bulletins
We live in a world that is more dangerous than September 11, 2001 because of political correctness and cowardly leaders not willing to admit the truth and who and what we are frighting. Make no mistake, America never has declared war on Islam, however, radical Islam has declared war on the West and America.

Due to health reasons, however, Thompson — now in his 90s — has been unable to visit the ship, according to the Battleship Iowa news release.
With the help of volunteer coordinators, the chief selects from the Fleet Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center visited Thompson’s home and sang the Navy’s march song, “Anchors Aweigh” in the middle of his residential street.
While the singing went on, Thompson stood and saluted, “inspiring those around him,” the release stated.
The remarkable thing, according to a spokesman for the museum, is that Thompson had a fall earlier this year and had not been able to walk or stand since then.
After the singing concluded, the chief selects walked one-by-one up to Thompson on the veteran’s porch to shake his hand.
SOME HEROES HAVE 4 LEGS … REST IN PEACE SWEETIE.
Today is a sad day. Some posts are just harder to write than others, this is truly one of them …
Bretagne, the last known living 9/11 search dog has passed away at the age of 16. A statement from the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service says Golden Retriever Bretagne was put to sleep on Monday at a veterinary clinic in the Houston suburb of Cypress. Bretagne, (pronounced, “Brittany”), was just 2 years old when she and her handler, Denise Corliss, took part in the 9/11 search operation in New York. They spent 10 days at the scene searching rubble for human remains following the terror attack on September 11, 2001. Bretagne not only served at Ground Zero, but BarkPost explained she also helped with search and rescue in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Bretagne retired from active duty aged nine. And now we say goodbye to this precious and beautiful dog.
When it was time to say goodbye, she was given a hero’s farewell.
Firefighters and rescue workers lined the sidewalk as her body, draped in an American flag, was carried out. Tears streaked down some faces.
Bretagne, believed to be the last surviving 9/11 Ground Zero search dogs, was euthanized Monday.
The golden retriever was 16. Old age had slowed her down, and it was time to put her to sleep.
So, the firefighters at the Cy-Fair Fire Department in Harris County, Texas, lined the path up to the Fairfield Animal Hospital, as her owner, Denise Corliss, walked her in to be put to sleep.
Bretagne celebrates her 16th birthday in New York City
A doggy’s birthday for one of the brave who searched following 9/11 where Bretagne was given the “Kibble to the City”.
In September, BarkPost teamed up with 1 Hotels to give the beloved dog a day of celebration in New York City for her 16th birthday. The day was known as “Dog’s Best Day,” an on-going series from BarkPost that celebrates deserving dogs.
Bretagne was whisked throughout the city that day and given the hero treatment. It started with a limo at the airport and then a suite over looking Central Park at 1 Hotel.
Bretagne was then taken to see a personalized billboard in Times Square displaying a happy birthday message. She even received the doggie “Key to the City” presented by Hudson River Parks.
And as we say goodbye to a true American hero, Bretagne is walked, by her handler Denise Corliss, past a flank of members of the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department and given a fireman’s funeral. Goodbye Bretagne, thank you for your service and your companionship. Rest in Peace.
If this does not bring a tear to your eye and a lump in your throat, you may not have a heart.
Gainesville Police Department Officer Responds to Complaint that Kids Are Playing Basketball Too Loud in the Street – VIDEO (Update: Police Return for Rematch with
HEROES OF THE WEEK … OFFICER BOBBY WHITE AND SHAQ!!!
I BET THESE KIDS NEVER EXPECTED THIS WHEN POLICE WERE CALLED REGARDING A NOISE COMPLAINT …
On January 15, 2016 at 5 PM Gainesville Police Department officer Bobby White responds to a call about children playing basketball ‘loudly’. Caught in the officer’s dash cam, Officer Bobby White walked up to the boy and asked him sternly, “Can you believe someone’s calling to complain about kids playing basketball in the street — can you believe that?” Officer White then responded, “Obviously, I ain’t got no problem with it.” GOOD FOR HIM!!! I can guarantee you these kids thought they were going to get hassled as the ‘Black Lives Matters’ would have everyone believe. Officer White’s actions could not have been further from the truth as he began playing basketball with the kids. And shame on the individual who actually called the police for kids playing basketball at 5 PM. What would you rather have them doing?
A police officer responding to a report of kids playing basketball “loudly” in the streets parked his patrol car and spotted a tall boy holding a basketball.
Gainesville Officer Bobby White walked up to the boy and asked him sternly, “Can you believe someone’s calling to complain about kids playing basketball in the street — can you believe that?”
Before the boy could respond, White cracked a smile: “Obviously, I ain’t got no problem with it.”
The young man tossed the officer the ball and he went for two points.
The story gets better, much better. Before leaving Officer White asked the kids if they play ball there everyday. He promised to come back with reinforcements for a rematch. ENTER SHAQ!!! Interestingly enough, even officer White was surprised when Shaquille O’Neal walked through the door.
Check out the kids response below when the police showed up for their rematch and SHAQ gets out of the SUV, its priceless. These kids may never get a better and more lasting lesson in life. Shaq played ball with the kids and the Gainesville Police Department. Shaq even challenges the kids to make a shot and win $100. Little did he realize they could all shoot foul shots better them him, LOL!!! However this VIDEO gets even better at the 3:28 mark. Check out SHAQ’s message to these kids that Shaquille O’Neal provided when he huddled up with the kids. What a message. THANKS SHAQ!!!
The Rematch: GPD “Basketball Cop” returned as promised, and brought SHAQ as his backup!
The 4-time champ made a surprise stop at the Gainesville Police Department on Saturday to praise White and help the officer make good on a promise to “bring backup” for another pickup game with the kids.
Dashcam footage of White responding to the noise complaint went viral after the department posted the video to its Facebook page on Thursday, with the message: “We’re going to let kids be kids. We are going to focus on the ones that commit crimes. #HoopsNotCrime.”
The officer returned to the scene of the non-crime to challenge the kids to a rematch on Saturday.
“Told you I was gonna bring some backup, right? You guys ready?” White asks the kids.
“Look at these big guys I brought. You sure you can take them?” he taunts, pointing to a group of officers.
That’s when O’Neal emerges from an SUV to give the kids a true Shaq attack.
“These kids will never forget the day Shaq rolled up to their house to play ball,” the police department wrote on its Facebook page along with video of the game.
