Remembering 9/11 Lest We Never Forget!!
Eighteen years later and some of the 911 master planners are still free and in hiding, but thankfully Osama bin Laden is dead and burning in hell.
New York, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Evil men attacked the U.S.A. on September 11, 2001.
It was a day of horror for all of us — an unthinkable attack by sick, vicious, evil cowards. President Trump’s leadership has dramatically reduced the radical Muslim threat in this world, but they are still hiding in their caves, waiting for another opportunity to cause terror and kill more Americans.
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 minutes 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 minutes 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 a radical Muslim terrorist.
The town where I live in is the last stop on the train line out of NY City. The thought of parked cars covered with flowers in the train parking lot, for friends and neighbors that did not make it home to their families 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, utterly unaware of an event that would change America and not for the better.
God bless our dead friends and family. You will always be in our hearts and our prayers.
