In Memory of September 11

Postby koimaster » September 10th 2010, 9:20pm

I was in Canada and Carol was in Ireland on 9/11. In memory of Carol and those who lost their lives and loved ones on 9/11 and later from subsequent actions. Due to 9/11 my trip was extended 5 days and it took 14 hours to cross the border back into the states.

I was in Manhattan - at FOX News (6th Ave and 48th).
You could smell the fire all the way uptown.
The attack seriously sucked.
But I have my own issues about the aftermath.

It's certainly the biggest event/happening of my lifetime. It changed the landscape of the world forever and I don't think things will ever be as they were. Bless all those that lost there lives and those that were left alone/behind.

I was in Charlotte, NC at work, remember trying to call my daughter who live in Queens and all lines were busy... pretty bad memories of that day.

My wife and I were bi-coastal at the time, we got our Herald Square apartment the first of August.
On the 11th, I was at our CA home, and didn't talk directly to my wife for almost full two days. Since the area codes we had there, and in CA also are the area codes of almost all of the major media out lets (212 and 818), we couldn't connect.
One of our best friends was almost directly underneath when the second plane hit, and was just blocks away as they fell. Then he eventually jumped on a tug boat that took him and others to NJ. It took him 12 hours to get back to his home in Astoria.

I was at the Port Authority in 93 when the cowards tried the first time. I was in CA getting ready for work in 2001. I still remember the feeling of seeing the second plane hit...the utter disbelief and then the knowlege we were at war.

Good post Koi. I was with MPD at the time and was a member of the Civil Disturbance Response Team, which consisted of a grand total of eight guys. After the Pentagon was hit, I was called in from home, we got in a van, and spent 76 hours straight marking evidence inside the structure.

As I mentioned today in another post, my thoughts today are with a gentleman named Al Abate, who lost two people close to him in the tower attacks.

I'd recant my 9/11 day, but I'm pretty sure I've written about it here before.

As a New Yorker, that day, and many months after it, were exceptionally painful. I'm pretty sure I've never gotten over the anger. All I know is that I wish everyone affected peace and happiness every day for the rest of their lives.

As I said before, T, on these anniversaries, I try to let the anger go and instead admire the heroes of 9/11; the NYPD, the passengers on flight 93, but especially the NYFD--these people set a benchmark of courage that may be equalled, but never surpassed.

I don't believe in God, but if God had to pick where the attacks were made, he choose New York, because New York could take it.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

My eyes directly on the towers as they fell. This is what's etched in my mind.

Even though I was watching on TV, that sound was so sad. Absolutely heartbreaking.

Here's what pissed me off about the response to the tragedy - the feds paying the dead folks' families. Still does.
The members here aren't gonna get any cash when they or the relatives croak. What made the 9/11 dead special? Yes, it was a tragedy. But every death is.
I have no problem - and contributed - to PRIVATE charities raising cash for victims' kin. But government dole for the dead makes it unequal - unless we ALL get the same cash.

A tragedy in every way. The 3000 innocent souls in New York and the 250,000 Iraqi's who were asked to pay the highest possible price for that atrocity.

Still, America made sure the Iraqi's won't do it again!! Oh, wait...
