Not to Diminish the 911 Thread, but

My son had a homework assignment last night to interview someone who was alive when the tragedy of 9/11 happened. He interviewed me and I explained to him where I was, what happened that day that I remember and how I felt. The teacher stated that he felt it necessary not only to help teach the children but to honor those that were lost. I am glad that there are a few good teachers left out there. Also at my daughters high school yesterday morning the chorus teacher and kids decided to sing the national anthem in the common area while all the other kids and teachers watched in honor of the victims of 9/11. I am very thankful to have been raised in the little town of Franklin in Heard Co. and I am very proud of those kids. There was a video posted on fakebook from the Heard Co. high school group that my wife showed me of them singing that I wish I could've posted but I do not do fakebook.

Maybe I'm looking at this all wrong, but I took it as a day of reprieve. The silence was more out respect than out of bad intentions. Don't slay me, I guess I just want to see the best in folks.

To add to how far the tangible impact of the event reached, I was working VFD during my days off from my real job. Small rural department, light call load. When 9/11 happened many of the city departments provided personnel and equipment to the beleaguered FDNY. The call came for VFDs to supplement the local city departments while they deployed to NYC. We suddenly found ourselves working calls on commercial structures under the command of the city officers instead of residential and wildland fires we usually worked.
 
I worked with two far left liberals who cheered at the news on 911. One was escorted out of the building and told to take a couple days leave before someone beat the snot out of them.
Why didn't you beat the snot out of him when he came back to work? You're a Marine aren't you? Semper Fi Teufel Hunde! :rockon::flag:
 
It's very interesting to me who HASN'T posted in the 911 Thread -
"Do you remember what you were doing 18 years ago today."
Not posting about our whereabouts or the emotions we felt as those events unfolded should really not be interpreted in any negative way in regards to our patriotism, love for this country and its hard working citizens, or our deep hatred for the scum who perpetrated those heinous acts. Some of us are just not as vocal as others about personal feelings. Some are compelled to share; others keep emotional issues to themselves. We should allow and respect either.

Well said. You are right.
