Families of 9/11 victims set to gather at Ground Zero as Americans prepare to mark the 18th anniversary of the atrocity with mournful ceremonies across the country

Families of 9/11 victims set to gather at Ground Zero on 18th anniversary

Relatives of some of the dead will visit Ground Zero on Wednesday where every victim's name will be read out, and tolling bells will mark the moments when two hijacked planes crashed into the towers of the World Trade Center. President Donald Trump is due at a ceremony at the Pentagon, where the third plane exploded, while Vice President Mike Pence will speak near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where heroic passengers brought down the fourth jet before it could reach Washington. Pictured left: two columns of light replicate the Manhattan skyline where the towers once stood last night; top right: a memorial service yesterday for an FDNY firefighter who died on 9/11; bottom right: a service at the Flight 93 memorial in Pennsylvania; inset: people at the World Trade Center memorial in lower Manhattan yesterday.

Have You Forgotten?
Darryl Worley

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 right.

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 we vow to get the ones behind Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I've been there with the soldiers
Who've gone away to war
you can bet they remember just what they're fightin' for

Have you forgotten
All the people killed
Yes some went down like heroes
In that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten
About our Pentagon
All the loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don't you tell me not to worry 'bout Bin Laden

Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?


Have you forgotten?!

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “

- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

 

Lets see what Obama says on this day.
Maybe he'll fly some more airplanes followed by bombers in downtown NY.

The Pilot's Daughter

September 11 was a tragic day for the whole country. But especially for this young woman and her family

How do you tell someone that your dad was the pilot on Flight 11, the first plane that terrorists flew into the World Trade Center?

Few of us will forget when and where we were that dreadful Tuesday morning eight years ago when it became apparent the nation was under attack in a manner in which no nation has ever seen before.

                       

Many of us vowed to "never forget" those feelings or that day ---- a sentiment we share ---- but what about the future? Certainly we want our children and grandchildren to remember that day, but what about their grandchildren and the countless generations to come after them?

                       

It is easy to say they should pause (as many of us do) on this sad anniversary and pay a small, solemn homage to those lost and those still suffering from the multipronged attack on the nation and its sense of security. But will we instill in them the need to always remember?

                       

Always remember. Easy to say; harder to actually do.

                       

Americans are good at remembering some things tied to pivotal events that have shaped this country ---- the Fourth of July, for one. But with other events, especially after the passage of time, our track record isn't so good. Consider:

                       

1). March 6, 1836.

                       

2). July 3, 1863.

                       

3). Feb. 15, 1898.

                       

4). Nov. 11, 1918.

                       

5). Dec. 7, 1941.

                       

6). June 4-7, 1942.

                       

7). June 6, 1944.

                       

8). Nov. 27-Dec. 13, 1950.

                       

9). Jan. 31, 1968.

                       

Remember all of these?

                       

If not, know that someone at some time did, and hoped that the importance of these dates and the lives lost would not be forgotten by future Americans.

                       

So, as we remember this day and what it meant to us then, and still does mean; as we pay tribute to the dead and the lives shattered on this day, reflect on this simple fact: It is our duty to ensure future generations remember why this date is important.

                       

That is the best way of all for us to honor this date.

                       

* * *

                       

Answers to the dates, in order:

                       

1). "Remember the Alamo," the fall of that chapel-turned-fortress in San Antonio.

                       

2). The turning point of the Civil War, the failure of Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg.

                       

3). "Remember the Maine," the sinking of the USS Maine at Havana that triggered the Spanish-American War.

                       

4). The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the end of World War I, the "War to End All Wars" (best known today as Veterans Day).

                       

5). The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, triggering the U.S. entry into World War II.

                       

6). The turning point of the war in the Pacific, the Battle of Midway during WWII.

                       

7). The turning point of the war in Europe known as D-Day, the Allied invasion of occupied France during WWII.

                       

8). The Korean War's Chosin Reservoir Campaign, a strategic Chinese victory but a tactical U.S. victory and U.S. retreat.

                       

9). The turning point of the Vietnam War with the beginning of the Tet Offensive, which was a tactical U.S. victory but a political defeat.

       
               

Do you agree?
