At This Moment 14 Years Ago 🇺🇸

Members Only

Another year has passed, yet the message still remains the same. Thoughts and prayers to all those lives that were lost on 9-11, their loved ones, and all the Heroes that stepped up on this tragic day that will never be forgotten. 

 

Life is short and can be taken from us in the blink of an eye.  Whether it be us, someone near and dear to our hearts, a family member, a friend, someone that we had a falling out with and never got the chance to make it right, or maybe, just maybe, a potential match for us that we never took the chance to pursue. 

 

With that being said, how many on here are searching for perfection that will never be found?  

How many of you aren't even open to an extension given to you of a chance for a potentially great friendship by an individual on here? 

 

If you knew your life might end sooner than expected, would you reconsider what's truly important to you?  Would your list begin to shorten? Would you choose to seize the opportunities that are presented to you?  Take more chances? Would you love more deeply? Be a little kinder?  Be more forgiving?  Be less judgmental?  Help a stranger or someone in need?  Hug your loved ones? Say "I'm sorry" or "I love you"?  Take the time to get to know someone that you might never get he chance to know again?

It IS horrible Roc!  The Muslims are killing people....the Christians are killing people!!!  Hmmmm...just the Atheists aren't trying to kill anyone. All they do is post scientific research papers on the Cosmos and Climate Change trying to save the planet and humanity!

 

lolo....I'm sure I'm gonna get a smack down for making a generalization. Nevertheless....I'm jus' saying. 😏

 

Can't believe that I've been away from here for awhile so just getting to read and respond to these today.  Here you were just mentioning the Muslims killing people and now I just learned a Muslim went on a shooting spree at a school asking each one their religion and shooting then if they weren't Muslim. Senseless!!!! 

Prayers to all the victims and their family and friends and the many that are wounded that they will recover fully and quickly. Prayers to an end of all terrorism and tragedies.  Prayers for world peace!! 🙏🏻👼🏻

****@ROC ****

 

Thanks ROC for that picture ...Ill pass it on and I hope nobody will have a nightmare ...

 

I had lived in this peoples country but it went smoothly and peacefully because we didn't have a close contact with them ..We followed the rules , did what their Laws asked us to do but we were careful ...One thing we know about them is they live with their heart not with their brain thats why they are easy to be dictated and intimidated ..they don't have to think , the govt .do everything for them and their strong and unwavered belief makes them untouchables and make them million miles away from us which make them succesful in killing Christian people ... but there are good Arabs we just don't know who and that is our problem ...

That would be very hard living in a country like that where you have to try to decipher the good from the bad, and live in fear from the brainwashed, crazy and evil.  Thankfully things went smooth for you Mary! Sending prayers for continued protection! 🙏🏻👼🏻

Atrocity and hypocricy at their finest!  Welcome to our world of senselessness! I rather enjoyed the generalizations, as they're good points and while sad, still a bit true. 

I've never understood how anyone who truly has God in their heart, could rationalize killing anyone...no matter how hot the virgins promised might look! Lol 

Prayers for our messed up world! 🙏🏻👼🏻

Can't say I was frantic, it's not my nature, but I did feel very helpless.  I heard from my daughter later that night, she was on the Metro going to work.  It took a couple of days before I heard from my cousins.  They live on 17th Street right off Union Square, which is a distance from the World Trade Center.  The cloud that we all saw on TV traveled beyond their location.  Many of the first responders were neighbors of cousins who live between Coney Island and Breezy Point.

Helpless indeed! I'm sure your heart felt like it was in your gut and vice versa. So hard to be in a position of worrying about loved ones. God bless all the first responders and everyone else that stepped up on that tragic day and after. Glad all your loved ones were ok! 👼🏻🙏🏻

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men".  Some of you may remember this line from a radio program.

 

Since 9/11 we have been introduced to the hatred and atrocious behavior these terrorists direct towards anyone who opposes their way of life.  They have a total disregard for the sanctity of life and are promised some number of virgins when they die.

 

Here's a picture of one of them... pass it around, it could save lives.

So much speculation as to who/what was the real cause/culprits.  All the conspiracy theories can really get your head spinning, and beyond sad. 

 

Well…let’s see.  We know Iraq didn’t do it.  Neither did Afghanistan.  Hmmm….Korea???  Nope!  Iran didn’t do it.  What about Syria???  Nope!!!  Yikes!!!   Who does that leave???

Don , do you mean Bin Ladin is the mastermind of that plot ??!!!

 

I have seen the covering of the report and have also read from the report that most of the people involve are working at the MIT as well as pursued their education as Pilots ...

 

I think that the Americans should not forget blood is thicker than anything as well as their belief ...Those guys had been promised a lot of things ...and most of all that they will go to heaven if they die after killing most of the Americans .. What a smack but effective to poisoned mind ...

I guess I took it for granted that you all would know that my work place was not one of the buildings that was struck.  Not even close by.  As I said though, no one knew the extent of the threat yet or how many forms it might take.  Thus no unauthorized folks were to be let into our workplace. 

 

 

Wise security precautions nonetheless!

I was in a training aircraft near Boston (Hanscom) with a student and asked the tower for take off permission and his response " Taxi to parking". When I asked why he said all flights canceled.. watch TV in piolts lounge.

 

I sent an email to the White House that morning with Osama's brother's address and phone number ( he was an architect at MIT/BU living in Cambridge) Dahhhhh.

 

The next day all of the Ben laden family was on a jet out of the country...the only flight in the air that day from anywhere to anywhere

Oh my goodness, this recollection will remain with you forever. I'm sure!  I can only imagine how each year at this time, it comes even more to mind. Glad to know they were sent out if the county, and I do recall hearing that some were.  Too bad they were unable to do us all a favor and get through to him for us.  

 

You really took charge that day in what you did. I read your comment to my daughter and she said you sound very intelligent and knowledgable! You have two votes going for you now, as I second the motion!

Fourteen years... seems like yesterday.  I was watching the "Today Show".... saw the second plane hit.  Tried to call my cousins who live in Lower Manhattan and my daughter who lived near the Pentagon at the time.  No cell sevice at all that day.

Oh my goodness, I bet you were frantic!!! Glad everyone was okay, or so it sounds.

Is that true Don??  You sent an email to the White House?  What was that about?

 

I had heard about the Bush Administration letting all the Arab family members out of the country.  This was a very curious response to the terrorist crime.  Usually whenever there is a crime, the police want to talk to anyone who might have some information. 

 

Yes Diana True as that day was. The student I spoke of that was in the plane with me that morning was one of the Good Arabs. Good guy with a nice family. he played hand ball with osama's brother on occasion. He was also interviewed by the FBI after 9/11.

 

Why did I esend the email?....I was pissed that I could find/know such information and they might not have

We went to work, just like every other morning. 

 

I remember that morning.  I was driving to work when the first plane hit, before I got to work the second plane hit. 

 

When I got there armed guards were at the building.  We had to show picture identification to the guards who checked us against a list of the people safe to let in.

 

Why?  No one knew the extent of the threat yet nor who was to be targeted next.  No one knew how many different ways we might be targeted nor how far down that targeting might be. 

 

Things were weird thereafter.  Guards, badges, and security procedures.  Things that had not seemed necessary before, but now we were under attack.      

 

Can’t remember now how long before things settled down. 

 

Wow Mac, were you there in the building after the planes hit? Crazy!!!
