    Kennedy Shot

    For years at coctail parties the question would come up, "where were you when you heard John F. Kennedy had been shot?"  I was in junior high school (middle school to some) and they announced it over the loudspeakers at lunch time.  I remember exactly where I was...

    I still can't watch the footage.

    The Budweiser tribute aired only once, and it still makes me cry. http://youtu.be/U1qEZHhJubY

    Can Never Forget

    I like so many other will never forget where I was when it happened. I will never forget what happened after. On that Tuesday morning, I was at Fort Hood, TX getting ready for work. A fellow soldier came in and said turn on the news. That when we saw the first building on fire...

    I may not remember it

    because I was only 1 years old but I've seen so many videos and documentaries. It's hard to forget that after you've watched it. I hope to visit NYC one day and see the 9/11 memorial and museum. I'm also (in a way) hesitant because just watching those videos brought out some...

    I've watched so many documentaries on September

    11th... I just watched Out of the Clear Blue Sky, on Netflix, I knew the stock market was greatly affected by 911 but this opened my eyes to so much more. It was on the Cantor Fitzgerald financial firm that lost 650+ of it's employees.. Very inspiring yet huge eye opener. If...

    Hate

    I know it is wrong to hate. I still hate Muslims. I have prayed about this. I just can't logically understand these people and their beliefs. I can't get it out of my head that they are not even human when they can justify this kind of terror.  They do more harm to each...

    I was scheduled to fly to NY to train people on

    the job. But due to a very bad ear infection, my doctor advised me not to fly and I took hid! When I turned my TV on the following morning, I saw the Twin Towers on fire; where I could have been while training other employees . Our company lost 800 employees during the 9/11...

    Thermite and Bombs

    Now i know this is a sensitive subject, but some things just have to be said, and this is one of them. A pair of airplanes are NOT what brought the World Trade Center buildings down. It's true. I don't have to tell you the story; the whole world already knows. But what you...

    This Is the Weekend

    I see 911 every time I look at my clock.

    On Thursday, September 10 of this year I had a really bad feeling about the following day, 911. Nothing happened on 9/11 but something happened on 910… I was in a car accident.

    Even though I was baby,

    I remember finding out years later. I don't think anyone will really ever forget this event. It affected everyone in some shape or form.

    Most Forgot 9/11 By 9/12

    ...And I knew they would. I knew exactly how the airwaves would be filled with the usual psychobabble: "My goodness, what did WE do to make the enemy so angry?" I knew any retaliation on our part would be criticized as human rights violations. And I knew the world would turn the...
