Never forget...

    I figured someone would have posted this by now, but I'll go ahead.

    As everyone here knows, six years ago today thousands of people lost their lives in the worst terrorist attack in our country's history. Mothers and fathers lost their children, and children lost parents...wives lost their husbands and vice versa...

    We said as a country we "would never forget" but it has become obvious in the last six years that many people in our country have forgotten. So I ask you guys to make our community a little different than the rest of the people out there who don't hold 9/11 close to them: take a minute and thank God for your life, for all of our lives...and remember those who are hurting today.

    We can't forget.

    I posted something in the Chit Chat section. :) I will also copy my blog from another forum that I wrote today:

    Six years since the terror attacks. And every year it's like the scab gets ripped open and fresh. You remember the exact minute and what you were doing from when you got up that day until when you returned home, if you made it home. You remember the sound the bodies made when they hit the ground. Like water balloons hitting the pavement. You remember the images of people jumping out of the towers. It was either burn to death or jump. What a choice to have to make. You remember the smell. Your throat feels like you swallowed glue. The smell of death. It's a smell you will never forget.

    I was home that day, but saw it all on TV. The first thing I thought of was my friends. Who would be alive and who would be dead. When I returned to work, I had to walk up to the site to make sure it was real. I walked through powder and papers and metal. The closer I got, the hotter it got from the intense heat coming out of the pit. The closer I got, the more the smell dripped down my throat. The pit stayed like that until December, and so did the smell. I watched a video that 2 brothers made. They showed it on HBO. That's how I know what the bodies sounded like when they hit the ground.

    Another anniversary.

    And that's when JC came along. He saved my soul. He made me realize that not all things were evil. He gives to me unconditionally. He is the reason I can move forward in a world that has become so evil and full of hate.

    yes we musn't forget.i have seen many a war and attack in my day and this is one of the worst i have ever seen.i would say pearl harbor would be worse but we just didn't have the documentation to prove it.we had a good bit but not like with the 9/11 attack.so for the sake of everyone who died because of them idiots we can not forget,the least we can do for them is not to have let them die in vain and be forgotten.

  6. I cant even imagine what this must have been like for those that witnessed this.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families of those that they lost.
    You will never be forgotten, not through the eyes of millions....

    Staff Sgt. Carnes, was a Marine in my company. He was actually one of the two Marines on the scene who was pulling bodies out from underneath the carnage.

    I can't imagine what he saw that day.

    We had a moment of silence at work today for 9/11.

    I will never forget.
