That morning I was sleeping in and the wife wakes me and says you need to see this on the TV. She tells me that it was reported a cessna had crashed into one of the WTC towers and when I seen it I said that was no cessna. I watched the 2nd plane making its turn and lining up and was screaming where in the hell were the fighters and wanted to see anything shoot that SOB out of the sky, then it happened. Will never forget. Watching that plane and then the people jumping to their death.

______________________________

Sept 11th 2009....Let's ALL remember to do THIS!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are times throughout our history we need to show unity and this is our generations Dec. 7th 1941. People must not forget the images of the WTC as the planes crashed into the buildings and exploded in a ball of fire, people jumping from the building 100 floors up to their certain death, the firefighters and police that gave their lives trying to save the as many of the 3000 innocent men, women and children who were ultimately killed. The ones who survived and suffer today. This is the best we can do to honor these people.

____________________________

We have a little less than one month and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.

If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... you get the idea.


THE PROGRAM:

On Friday, September 11th, 2009, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this eighth anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.

In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail over terrorism of all kinds

Action Plan:


So, here's what we need you to do .


(1) Forward this email to everyone you know (at least 11 people). Please don't be the one to break this chain. Take a moment to think back to how you felt on 9/11 and let those sentiments guide you.


(2) Fly an American flag of any size on 9/11. Honestly, Americans should fly the flag year-round, but if you don't, then at least make it a priority on this day.


Thank you for your participation. God Bless You and God Bless America !

I was driving to work listening to the radio when the first one hit. I got to work and was watching live on tv as the second plane came into view and crashed into the other tower. That was scary as hell. My wife was pregnant at the time which made it even worse not knowing what would happen next... I had to stop watching when I started seeing people jump to their deaths to avoid burning...

I was at work and heard over the SIPERNET we were being attacked.....since they didn't know what was happening, the Air Force did it's thing and had fighters in the air within 15 minutes.....I was running a data link from my radar to NORAD within 20 minutes...

One thing I learned is if we ever get attacked the militarys coordination for air defense is second to none.....I guess training for all those Soviet Bombers over the years honed our skills....

Eight years ago right now I was at a Social Distortion concert. It was a Monday night and the opening band was Death on Tuesday. Kinda weird. Got to work the next day listening to the radio folks talk about the crash into the first tower, sat in my truck in the parking lot listening and made myself late. After the second plane hit I went inside and found just about everyone gathered around radios listening to what was going on. It was a very surreal drive home that day. Driving on I-17 it seemed that everyone was a bit more conscious of thier fellow man, no body getting cut off and if you turned on your blinker people let you in instead of blocking you out.

Alert

I have been involved in Air Defense for the last 14 years and on that day was working in the Alert Facility located at Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson.

Anyone that thinks that there were no planes in the air around Washington DC is wrong. Every plane on alert in the US was scrambled soon after the attack started and many more were generated and made ready to fly in case of more attacks.

What people fail to understand is that this attack once started took very little time. Once it was figured out that we were getting attacked it was practically over. There were literaly hundreds of aircraft flying around that area and nobody knew which ones were targets. Once targets were identified there was no time for the fighters to do anything. I know that there were fighters very close to the plane that hit the Pentagon and also on the plane that crashed in the field.

It was a day I will never forget thats for sure.

I was watching TV and packing my stuff for an archery elk hunt that day. Still drove up to 5BN and was amazed at how quiet the skies were. No aircraft other than Franklin's crews crossing the sky every so often. Very eery.

I was on a bus headed out to the field for a Zoology lab my senior year of college. I was going to drop out and join the Marines the next day...until my coach and several area scouts heard about it. Needless to say, I didn't go, but man I wanted to wage war on those pricks so badly. I have so much respect for those serving...it almost makes me tear up even thinking about it (call me a *** but I love this country with a passion).

I went to school about 2 hours N of NYC. A ton of my friends and teammates were from Long Island, Westchester County, and the city and over 25 of those kids lost a relative, friend, or family friend in the attack. One of my teammates lost his father in the 2nd tower...he was a fireman.

Two days after the attack, we got the cloud. This cloud looked like a massive thunderhead, but we had no rain. It was then that everyone realized that this was remnants from the plumes of smoke and debris from the attack. It loomed around that little college town for 2 and a half days.

I'll never forget that terrible time in our history and will always remember.

My cousin is a Brooklyn firefighter and is one of the few from his station to survive the Trade Center collapse (was working a 2nd job that day). As soon as he heard the planes hit he ran to the site and proceeded to save approx 12 people by shoving them into a coffee shop right as the 2nd tower started falling. One of the 12 was the doc who approved to be a firefighter to begin with!!! Unbelievable! Unfortunately, he's been suspended since due to drinking (survivor's remorse).

I was sleeping and my now wife came in and turned on the TV. I couldn't believe it, I cept waiting for it to be some kind of george orwell joke like war of the worlds or something. I do remember that eerie vibe all of Denver, and like archer said everyone was very kind to there fellow americans. Too bad now most people on the road would sooner spit on you that let you cut in on traffic. It's like around christmas when everyone is nice. I think a great way to honor those lost would be to try and take care of each other every day and not just christmas or tragedies!

Prayers go out to the families of the lost and thanks to our service men and women.

At the time I was working at TIA and I was on my way in to work when the wife called and said a plane hit the tower. I thought she was talking about the one at TIA. We went back and forth on what she was talking about because it just wasn’t sinking in what had happened. I got to work and it was surreal at the airport. Everything was locked down. My office was down in the lower level of one of the concourses and I had to be escorted by the airport cops. Every body walking around with looks of shock and horror on their faces. That is a day I will never forget.
I tip my hat and bow my head to all those people that lost their lives from the people working in the towers to the police and fireman that lost their lives trying to save as many as they could.
And a big thank you to the those in the service. I served in the USCG and I hold you guys and gals in very high regard in all services.

The passengers on #97 (the plane that crashed in the field in Pennsylvania) are some of the greatest heros of all time in my book. Knowing what's coming and stepping up to save who knows how many lives while terrified of dying in a plane crash...wow! God bless them. God bless all of those innocent lives lost on that day and God bless those who are fighting (or died fighting) against terrorism.
