    Remembering September 11, 2001

    Post by Kyouri Kai on Fri 11 Sep 2009, 9:46 am

    Whether you are a conspiracy theorist or not, if you were old enough to remember back 8 years ago, at this very moment (the time of this post), then you know that a commercial plane, filled with passengers, dove into Tower 1 of the WTC in New York City. Exactly 17 minutes later, another plane, also filled with passengers, dove into Tower 2 of the WTC. 34 minutes have now passed of people all across the globe watching as the towers burn when a third plane dove into the Pentagon. Even those that had doubts about the first two planes and the destruction of the two tallest towers of the WTC had no doubt at 9:37am, that this was indeed an intentional terroristic attack on the United States, and on its own soil. But thanks to a few brave Americans on a forth, less known plane, at 10:03am, more lives were lost, yet more were also spared, for that plane did not reach its intended target of the White House in Washington, D.C. In the end, approximately 3000 lives were lost that day at the hands of the pilots of those planes.

    Many people do a memorial posting on this event, and in a way, this is too, with the exception that in truly honoring all the lives lost, it must be pointed out that America did not learn its lesson. No matter who is ultimately to blame for the attacks on innocent civilians on September 11, 2001, Americans have fallen asleep yet again and are in dire need of another wake-up call. If the message sent that day did not teach people a very valuable lesson, then I am afraid nothing short of a tragedy in ones own personal life will. Well, if things continue to go as they have been, particularly since January 19, 2009, then that tragedy very well may occur.

    Even if the Bush Administration had forewarning of the events of this day 8 years ago, or even if they helped plan it, who can deny that it was Muslim extremists at the helm of what turned into a day of awakening? Take a very close look at the truth that surrounds you. The truth that stares you in the face on a monthly basis on prime time television. Read the news, discern for yourselves what reality is vs. the perpetrated lies most tend to fall prey to.

    September 11...... the day that is already written in many school history books. A day that should stand out on its own is now being cast aside and shadowed by new events.

    * In Hawaii, the alleged home state of America's current President, Barrack Hussein Obama, "[a] resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote." Less than 2 full weeks after the most memorable day in America's recent history, a proclamation is set down to honor a religion that bred the extremists. (This is not argument session, please point out to me the Christian Day on the calendar. Christmas does not count any longer as it has been noted that it is actually a Pagan holiday, and let's not forget that Ramadan and Kwanzaa are also posted on the calendar.)

    *On September 2, 2009, "President Obama decided to honor the Muslim religion at a reception to mark the end of the religion’s holy month of Ramadan."
    re: President Obama wrote:“The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country,” Obama said at the iftar, the dinner that breaks the holiday’s daily fast.

    The president joined Cabinet secretaries, members of the diplomatic corps and lawmakers to pay tribute to what he called “a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress.”

    Two nights before this day of memorium, President Obama gives a speech to the nation regarding the health care plan where he stated, "anyone that can afford health care but does not have it, will be required to obtain this coverage". He spoke of how illegal immigrants, which people need to be reminded of do not only include those from Mexico, but all countries, and how they would not be covered to which Rep. Wilson from South Carolina literally spoke out during the televised speech, "You lie!".

    Our country has fallen to its knees yet again, and this time, it was at the hands of the American people, not outsiders. How quickly people tend to forget that it is the arrogance, the ignorance, the laziness of the American people that causes this country to be disliked by so many others. If we cannot stand united as one, as we did on September 11-14, 2001, then the tragedy of this day, 8 years ago, means all those lives were lost in vain.

    I was in class this day. I witnessed history. And not until later did I really have any idea what went on. People were taken out of school. Instead, I was the only one left in class. My parents said I would be fine. And I was, until I learned later that flight 93 hit PA just less than 15 minutes away from us. I guess I was lucky that day. God spared me for a reason. And you know, I really wasnt focused on that at the time. The teachers turned on the old TV's and I watched history in the making that day. Death, destruction, pain: these are what became part of my life. Everything that I ever knew was destroyed today. (except for GM, and Pontiac) I was in shock. And, I wanted to go to war. I wanted to kill those f'ng muslims, and I still do. Everyday, It feels like I could have prevented this in some way. (for history predicted it. America was just too naive to notice. But I knew it was going to happen) But, I thank everyone on flight 93 for all the lives they spared. *cries with pride* And I am with Kyo, if this keeps up, another 9/11 will happen again. And it almost did. But, Brittain caught those muslim b@$**rds that were going to try it again. Brittain sucks in a lot of ways, but I thank them also for what they do. God Bless America

    *watches the videos..* I remember this day.. I was in school.. And i had to go to the office for something.. and I walked in the office.. 4 teachers stood around the TV watching it as it happened.. I saw parts of it.. as I was on a mission.. and when i was walking out of the office I asked what had happen. And the one teacher looked at me and said.. Nothing to worry about. you better get back to class.. now looking at it from 8 years later.. I really wish that she would have been smacked for saying that. Because it was a lot more then just something to NOT worry about.. I was only in first grade.. and i don't remember much from then.. but I do remember that very well..

    i remember i was in the 5th grade and it was lunch time when i heard about it... since me and a few friends ate lunch in the classroom we were the first ones of our class to find out due to our teacher watching TV ... we were to engrossed in the TV we didnt notice the bell ring and were watching it through the whole day... checking the internet for some updates on the chaos... when i got home me and my family were watching the news and stuff... other than that i was glad we lived in the west.

    @L... dont be so dismissive and racist on muslims dude... not all of them are like that...

    I agree with Kage... not 'all' Muslims are extremists, as not 'all' Christians are crusaders. And by the way, L.... weren't you 10 at the time this happened? I mean, I know alot of very mature people at young ages, but for you to 'know' that something was going to happen.... outside of the Nostradamus quatrains, only those directly involved 'knew' what was coming. oops

    Well, I too was in school when it happened, or at least on my way and arriving when the first plane crashed into WTC 1. But as someone who has been literally fighting the system that governs us, and not just spouting off about it to my friends and anyone else that will listen, I can honestly say that as tragic event as it was, at the time I remember also feeling that it was the best thing for America. *shakes head* How short that lasted. It made no difference..... crime is crime.... terror is terror. Terrorism is 'not' merely an act against a nation as a whole or against the government that rules it. Terrorism is any act that strikes fear and terror in the heart of another. All one need do is turn on the News, read the daily paper, or even check out the current local events on the internet and see..... terror happens more at the hands of the Americans against Americans than it does at the hands of outsiders. Until we stand up against tyranny and injustice, no single country or religion can cause more mass devastation to Americans, than Americans themselves.

    Although there is a load of conspiracy theories out there. I do feel hurt for those who lost their lives that one day. And if you either believe it or not. People did die. Whether it was on the plane, in the building, or saving lives. At this time I was 11, I was having a happy day and when I walked into class my chair was right next to my teacher's and well she turned on the TV. And I was struck by the worst news possible. In all that was going on, I was absolutely terrified of airplanes and especially of being outside. The fear is still around.

    And I agree with Kyo. Amaricans do hurt themselves.
