    Default Have We Forgot ?

    I remember oh to well. I was pulling into the warehouse listening to the radio. I thought it was a joke. I got out of the 18 wheeler & ran inside to see it on the TV. Till this day i still cant believe what happen that day the Twin Towers & all that happened after. Every year i light a candle & pray for the victims & loved ones involved of that terrible day. I will not forget. We as Americans must not forget. God Bless America

    Hell no, I will NEVER FORGET!!!

    Sadly, as a society, it was forgotten almost as soon as the debris was hauled away.

    43 looks at this thread and three posts... I guess the OP's question has been answered.

    I wanted revenge! Hell! Who am I kidding. I still want revenge! Sadam and Osama is not enough. I won't be satisfied until every last POS living in that sand pit experiences 10,000 degrees F! If I had access to nuclear weapons, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Libya, and North Korea would be a glass bowl! My friend was on the roof of the whitehouse performing a weld repair on the cast iron dome when the pentagon was hit. My neighbor and childhood friend lost his dad that day. I'll never forget!

    No John, we haven't forgot....yet. Give it a few decades and it will become like the Holocaust. Did it really happen ?

    The problem is, this will turn political quicker than PFB can swap out gear, given todays headlines especially. That's why I think people passed on commenting anyway.

    It's still very much a part of our permanent American conscience. My 6th-8th grade students had numerous questions and responses.

    It does bear mention that we lost 4 Americans in Benghazi just a year ago... may we never forget them either.

    We will NEVER forget. 'Nuff said.

    With that said, an audio forum is not the place to discuss this. Politics, religion and international beliefs come into play. Nothing can ever replace the lost ones.

    I beg to differ Tom. The clubhouse area is a place to discuss the day and other general non-audio topics. No singular event has had such a deep and profound impact on everyone's lives as 9/11... So long as we pause to reflect and remember, or even express the anger that still simmers within most of us, then this thread is a good thing, and no politics need to come into play.

    My late grandmother was i nurse & lived at 225 West End Ave on the 6th floor for 30 hears or more. As a kid we use to go visit her there. I think my first time going up on the roof of the north tower was in 1976 & my last time was around 1984 & if i remember correctly the roof was closed at that time due to too many people doing things they shouldnt be doing. I remember as a kid going up the elevator & my ears popping. LOL. Then when i bought my first 18 wheeler i brought seafood from Rockland & Portland Maine to the Fulton fish Market 3 times a week & Backhauled out of Jersey or the Meat Market back to Maine to Shaws or Hannaford supermarkets. I really enjoyed the NYC area. The food was awesome & people there were very friendly. Had some great experiences in NYC. Im not big into politics so the thread had nothing to do with politics or religions. Just that i havent forgot what happened to the great people of that tragic day----

    Yep! I'm hateful! Maybe even shallow! So what! This is how I feel every time I think about that day. Revenge is not for everyone, but it suits me just fine! Thanks!

    That's exactly right. I come here to give and get audio advice, buy and sell gear, and maybe get a laugh from some of you goofballs. I do NOT come here for politics, religion, social commentary, etc., and it is very frustrating that some of you insist on continually breaking the rules and taking us down these roads. That is all.

    This!

    And there is NO need to go "political" here. The country, need I remind us, was "united" in that all too short time after 9/11...and then we started crapping on each other, again!

    I agree with Randy above. Having lived in Manhattan for over a decade, I found myself atop those towers several times showing guests the "city". It's hard to believe they're no longer there! And the acts that led to their demise.

    However, war and terror have been an intrinsic part of the daily life of a great many people around the world for many generations. bin Laden welcomed the U.S. to that world. And what a horrible welcome it was!

    Bev & I were getting ready for work, had the news on like we do every morning--when the first plane hit. At that point they just asumed it was some sort of an air tragedy. When we arrived at work, we heard of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th planes. We were sent home immediately (We're Department of Defense). Surreal and anger come to mind. We were glued to the TV for days.

    DoD had us remain home in "on-call" status for the rest of that week. Only Mission Critical personnel were allowed in the building until they could get enhanced security sorted out. To this day, the building is still surrounded by concrete dividers that keep all vehicles a minimum of 50 feet away from the building. A local DoD employee died at the Pentagon crash, and a memorial in his honor resides at the city Park. (Dave Laychek)

    To this day I cannot watch that footage without tearing up. Haven't sorted out yet if it's anger or sadness.
