It is too torturous to watch those scumbags...."somebody did something".

Welcome to the Canteen, JLAGRAYFOX...God Bless America and remembering all those who died on 9/11.

I have a very emotional connection to 9/11. Although my wife and I have not personally suffered a close and personal loss, we do know many who did and still grieve. I remember the day like yesterday. Anyway, these songs give me comfort:

I was asleep...my brother in Houston called.

Said, Turn on the TV.

I asked what channel and he said it didn't matter.

I stopped on the way to work and got another flag for my car. (They were all gone by evening.) Then glued to the TV all day.

We thank you for your service to our country.

“Vapor Trail” by the group RUSH

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KiSLZJj_E0

“Stratospheric traces of our transitory flight
Trails of condensation held
in narrow paths of white
The sun is turning black
The world is turning gray
All the stars fade from the night
The oceans drain away

Horizon to Horizon
memory written on the wind
Fading away, like an hourglass, grain by grain
Swept away like voices in a hurricane”

This song always reminds me of 9-11. There is one song on the album that was written about 9-11. However, many of the songs in my mind relate to that day. Most of the album is based on the writer's (Neil Peart) experiences and recovery from the loss of his wife (cancer) and daughter (car wreck) within a year of each other.

But - to me, the lyrics of all of the songs are relatable to anyone, or a nation, trying to deal with loss and grief.

I was in Midtown on 9/11 - 4 miles north of Ground Zero. It was a truly heartbreaking and awful day. We were worried about the other show dropping; we were getting (false) reports of a van loaded with explosives being stopped on the George Washington Bridge, and a guy with an explosives vest walking through the Lincoln Tunnell. I hugged Mrs DoodleBob and the little DoodleBobs when I finally made it home; while I wasn't near the Twin Towers or in imminent danger, I considered myself lucky.

Months later, I walked down to Ground Zero...this was when it was still a pit and debris was being removed, but there wasn't as much work remaining. What struck me was two things:

1. The immense feeling of void, of emptiness. What had been an immense and bustling complex of buildings punctuated by the Twin Towers was just...nothing. I called my wife and simply said - "they're gone." It sounds stupid, but that was all I could muster.

2. As I walked toward Ground Zero from Greenwich St, the faces of people walking back from Ground Zero had one of three looks: 1-profound sorrow - not just tears but an aching, 2-stunned nothingness, like the joy in their life had been washed away, and 3-anger and resolve...people were not just pissed, but PISSED.

I don't want to get all Liberal, but it is worth noting that the aforementioned people who looked pissed on my walk to Ground Zero were from all walks of life - old, young, white, black, Hispanic, Asian. That may have been the last time America was united...but I'll take the infighting we have today vs an attack that reunites us all. Never forget 9/11.

I’m more or less in the very center of the triangle of terror:

4 hours to NYC
2 - 2 1/2 hours to the Pentagon
3 hours to Shanksville

Busy and then absolute quiet except for mil recon.

That was a very saddening and beautiful post.

You’d think it would get easier with the years.

To be honest, some years it just didn’t really affect me (probably avoided thinking about it) and other years it bothered me to different degrees but this year it hit hard.

Maybe being on the other side of 50 makes one more introspective.

That day changed a lot of us for good. Or bad, actually.

I will always remember the many, many wonderful trips home o the ferry to Staten Island, sitting outside and watching them as we made our way home.

And there’s nothing liberal about all Americans feeling the loss at such a horror. There’s nothing liberal about thinking all Americans should feel the same loss.

Because the flip side is that POS al sharpton saying back then that it didn’t matter as much to black folks.

Another 9/11 comes and goes.

And we will never get to taste justice.

Howdy, radu.

Very disturbing but necessary images. If we forget then we’re doomed for it to happen again.

"Only Time"....this song will always remind me of 9/11. Every time I hear it, that terrible time comes back.

Thanks, Marine, for posting.

We thank you for your service to our country.

Beautiful tribute Ma!
Thank you!

On that day, I had just got up right after the first tower was hit.
Mr B was at work at the time.

My brother Rob called, and said “We’re being attacked!”
I said “What do you mean?”
He told me to turn on the TV.

I saw the first tower burning, and Rob told me a plane had hit it.
Then, I saw the second plane hit.
It felt like the floor had been pulled out from under me!

I remember screaming and crying when people started jumping to their deaths, rather than burn alive.
Forget it?
Not a chance!
Never, and I mean NEVER!

Howdy, LUV.

Yeah they’re disturbing images. It makes me sick that so many have forgotten. I’m honestly surprised - though grateful - that it hasn’t happened again.
I guess what we’ve gotten instead is worse - - muzzies in every level of gov’t. *spit*

My mood is dark as pitch every 9/11 because I see how far in the wrong direction we’ve gone.
