What a beautiful picture.
On Facebook we are all telling where we were on that day when it happened. I was driving to my job in Princeton, NJ. Top down on a most perfectly clear sky and the nice warm morning air. I was listening to Howard Stern and they reported a small plane hitting the tower. They made jokes about it until the second plane hit and then we knew we were under attack. I remember everything about that day, what I did, who I spoke to, the feelings and thoughts running through my mind.
I will NEVER Forget.
God Bless America.

My wife was up getting ready for work (we live in Phoenix, AZ) and had the news on in the bedroom. She told me to wake up because something odd was happening on tv. I started watching the broadcast and both of us kept asking each other “is this a trailer for a new movie or something?”
Then I saw, live, the second plane hit and I couldn’t believe it. I remember just being stunned about the events and I went numb. That day, and the few that followed, were just so surreal. But I can remember that day as if it were yesterday – just eerie…

And don’t forget the Pentagon.
And don’t forget United Airlines Flight 93.
Flight 93 impressed me in this way: For the time being all our military and economic might was helpless against the plan of the hijackers. But the terrorists’ plan failed on that plane. The front line of defense in that hour was being held by civilians with guts, cell phones, faith and prayer. And with their sacrifice it all added up to our very first victory in this war without borders.

Yes, dullhammer, a non-frontal war.
Last night I watched, once again, “The 102 Minutes That Changed America.”
Just like the day it happened, all that could keep going through my head was, “Why the WTC?” That’s a question that has occupied me for the entire eight years.
What a damned tragedy.
