I don't think I'll ever forget. Especially since my bro joined the army after it happened, and did a tour over in Iraq.

Ill never forget it...

I remember waking up to it and staying glued to the tv all day...nobody forget its...its a sore subject for alot of people...they do alot to have it known/remembered on the day...hell did anyone see the reconstruction of the skyline they did with lights in ny?

And to the people saying we need to send people over to erradicate the threat....

Whats the threat? Should they just destroy the entire middle east since terrorists come out of there? We should prob get rid of africa and south america too since lots of terror organizations are based outta there.

I fully support the war and think they arent doing enough but the enemy isnt a uniformed army its a person here and a person there and no matter what you think you cant just go around killing everyone who may be a terrorist purely based off their religion or how they look.

I think someone might have already tried that and a large war, a world war of sorts, started.

Peace,
Teddy K

Heard about it after taking a standardized test in Mr. Tron's 7th grade science class. Hard to believe it has already been 8 years.

That I can agree with wholeheartedly. Time has just seemed to pass so quickly, and yet so slowly.

A country song that is very appropriate.


I hear people sayin'. We Don't need this war.
I say there's some things worth fightin' for.
What about our freedom, and this piece of ground?
We didn't get to keep 'em by backin' down.
They say we don't realize the mess we're gettin' in
Before you start preachin' let me ask you this my friend.

(Chorus)
Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away
Have you forgotten, when those towers fell
We had neighbors still inside goin through a livin hell
And you say we shouldn't worry bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

You took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it's too disturbin for you and me
It'll just breed anger is what the experts say
If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
Some say this country just out lookin' for a fight
Well after 9/11 man I'd have to say thats right.

I've been there with the soldiers
Who've gone away to war
you can bet they remember just what they're fightin' for
Life is short, get off your couch

Honestly? I forgot. Do every year till the day they announce "please take a moment of silence...". After that? It escapes my mind.

Do I care? Not at all.

Do you? Maybe.


Does this make me a bad person? I'll leave that up to the individual.

Sad day, I was 8 years old and I was in second grade when my principal came in and whispered into my teachers ear, she ran over to the TV and turned it on. When she what was happening, she fell to her knees and started to cry. :(

I was the only one in the room who knew exactly what was going on and what was going to happen.

My Aunt was in Washington D.C. when it happened and she was taking a tour of the whitehouse and it was dead quiet.

We should never forget the brave men and women who gave their lives to save people from the building on that day and we should never forget the brave men and women who are, have, and were fighting over seas for the United States of America!!!

GOD BLESS THE USA!!!! :usa: :usa: :usa: :usa: :usa: :usa:

If someone ever said that "People die get over it" around me, I'd be picking bone fragment that aren't mine out my fist for a while.

Walking into school and seeing a plane fly into the building on the TV in the library is something that will be with me for as long as I live. Watching footage of it makes me just want to send thermonuclear weapons to the Middle East.

Last year it got me.

This year, I didn't really get to me I suppose.

The people that were in those towers and the fire fighters and police and everyone's soul involved (with the exception of the terrorists) have my unwaivering respect and sorrow. They shall forever be remembered. But still...I'll get to it in just a second.

Me, I can't remember at all what happened that day. Apparently my teacher left crieing...and that's about it. I think maybe I remember my mom watching the T.V., but other than that, I draw a blank that day. Either way, I was in 3rd grade when it happened. The reality of it all actually finally struck at around 5th or 6th grade.

Anyways, as I was saying, while the events that happened that day shall never be forgotten, some things we just have to, in a sense, let go. I know you're thinking "about 3,000 FRAGing people died that day! Don't you tell me to let go!", but we can't hold a resentment forever. Truth is, those terrorists are a small percent of the race and country they represent, and we can't blame an entire group for some of it's members crimes. To do so would be incredibly ignorant.

I support the war. I believe in finding these terrorists. But I do not believe in some of the undeserved hatered some people carry towards a race or country because of what happened.

Remember the people that died in the towers, remember those who died trying to save them, remember the men and women who have since given their lives because, and remember the day. But it's time to let go of some of the resentment, hard as it may be. Just as we can remember Pearl Harbor with respect rather than arrogance and anger now, it's getting around time to do so with 9/11.

Just because I'm not always proud of America, doesn't mean I'm not proud to be an American. Let 's never forget.

Quick little exercise I will always do when I hear the "small percentage argument":

1.2 billion Muslims in the world, which is not a race, but a religion. Anyone, of any race, or any country can be a Muslim. Arab, a common substitute for Muslim, is an actual ethnicity. Indeed, you can have Jewish Arabs, Christian Arabs, Muslim Arabs, or any other such combination.

For sake of round numbers, we'll simply use the figure 1 billion (1,200,000,000) and select a small percentage, such as 5%.

Now, 1 billion x 5% = 50,000,000 or 50 million.

For comparison, in World War II, the German infantry, or Wehrmacht, numbered no more than 18 million throughout the war. That is not taking into account Italian forces, Japanese forces, or the rest of the German military, of course.

If we extend to 1.2 billion x 5% = 60,000,000 or 60 million.

Either way, the math is not promising, as I believe 95% to be a best case scenario. However, I use it for these exercises as it is thrown around so freely, and without reservation, by so many. This is not to say that every Muslim is a jihadist (a far more accurate term than the generic 'terrorist'). Far from, as I do not pretend, nor have ever represented what each individual Muslim believes.

But...

The "small percentage argument" is of small comfort, as I have illustrated. We have our work cut out for us, and it is important that we use our resources (men, money, and war materiel) to proper effect.We haven't been doing this. Speaking in platitudes of "finding the people responsible" is all well and good, but when push comes to shove, just how far are you willing to go? How far, as a country, are we willing to go? That is a question that has not been answered, realistically answered, by enough people.

War is hell. In war, people die, be they civilians, children, jihadists, soldiers, Marines, or airmen. In war, you must decided that which you value most: the lives of tribesmen, or the lives of your own. The sooner these questions are answered, in honest fashion by all concerned, the better of we as a country will be. It will give clarity as to the tactics and the missions we will sanction.

Personally, my mind is made up. Military forces are meant to conquer and kill, breaking the will of the enemy to resist. Military forces are not meant to engage in nation building, police action, or any other type of social engineering in foreign lands. So either wage war as it is to be done, or do not fight. Failure, as we face in Afghanistan, is a waste of everyone's lives and limbs.


One final note: America has moved beyond Pearl Harbor because the affected generation's appetite for revenge was fulfilled. That is the only reason.

Becc, if you think everyone else in the world should care about something simply because you care, then you're in for a real kick in the ass. Your opinion of an event means so little to people, it's hardly worth mentioning. Never has anyone anywhere said, "Well Becc thinks this so I will too."

Tell me Becc: How many people died yesterday? The day before? The day before that?

As I said, you're a hypocrite and one of the worst kinds. If they aren't part of your fraternity, then you don't care about them.
