Remembering 9/11 Lest We Never Forget!!
8 years later and the 911 planners are still free and in hiding and our current government talks of reasoning with terrorists.
New York, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Evil men attacked the U.S.A. on September 11, 2001.
It was a day in hell for all of us. An unthinkable attack by sick, satanic, evil cowards.
I had off that day and was sleeping late when my wife called and told me to turn on the TV. I turned on my television, and saw the 1st twin tower on fire. Just a few minuets later I watched as the second plane flew into the tower. It was horrifying. I was shocked, numb, in disbelief, deeply saddened, and greatly angered. I had been in the towers many times.
I only live 45 minuets just outside New York City, down the jersey shore. I had friends and family working in Manhattan that day. My brother was working in a law office in Manhattan at the time, luckily for all of us he did not go into work that day. Many people who live in my town were killed by these twisted terrorist.
The town where I live is the last stop on the train line out of NY City. The thought of cars covered with flowers in the train parking lot for friends and neighbors that did not make it home to their family’s still makes me choke up and feel emotional.
As I stood on the beach that evening with my then six year old daughter I can still remember seeing the vast plumes of smoke drifting out across the ocean to the north of us and the hushed, shocked, talk of adults while children laughed and played in the warm September surf completely unaware of an event that would change America and not for the better.
God bless our missing friends and family. You are in our hearts and prayers.
