I will not forget...
If this turns into a partisan squabble, I might throw up.
I ask, I plea
In memory of those that died
Those that lost loved ones
Children who became fatherless or motherless.
IN memory of the heroes to emerged
only to disappear again.
IN memory of what happened,
Not who or why it happened
Let us not plummet into politics in this thread. Can we please put our political beliefs aside, our conspiracy theories, our righteous anger.
And honor those that deserve honor.
You new here? :wink:
I won't forget, either. I'm just not going to remember it as I am told to.
One of the undertold stories of 9/11:
I remember reading about him in the 9/11 commission report. It was deeply unfortunate that one of the highjackers was seated right behind him, who is believed to have killed him, because he was likely the most well-trained person to foil the highjacking. Thanks for sharing that.
Lots of heroes that day. It is like the day Kennedy was shot. Everyone remembers where they were when the news broke. We closed our office and sent everyone home because none of us were going to get squat done. Scary time. easy to forget. Glad NYC makes this an annual event. Similar to Pearl Harbor.
As long as you throw up in your mouth, and keep it there, it's okay.
These kind of things seem to be burned into our minds. Guess that is why personal traumatic events are so hard to get over some times.
I think your diminishing the trauma that the even actually caused people. And you're wrongly replacing the trauma suffered by America/Americans with remembrance/memorializing of this event as the reason why people are finding it so hard to "get over" this act of cowardice. That horrific even we still be in people's minds even if we didn't gather to remember the fallen. Some people will never "get over" it.

Ironically, all things which people think the government is lying about. Ok, maybe not Elvis.
Father Mychal Judge was the Chaplain in the NYFD who died following his entering the WTC to rescue others and to give last rights. There has been a movement urging the Vatican to canonize him. That movement has been gaining momentum.
Obviously you have no clue what I said.
All but 9/11 predated me, but what particular Elvis moment will you never forget? His death? Was that really considered a momentous thing by the time he died?
It was for my wife at the time. She absolutely adored him.
Elvis is really dead? :whoa:
But I just saw him performing weddings in Vegas...
