A 9/11 Tribute to those who lost their lives 9/11/01 - 15 Years and 9/11/12 - 4 Years

WE MOURN THE LOSS - WE CELEBRATE THEIR LIVES

WE WILL NEVER FORGET

WE WILL REMEMBER

"One of the worst days in America's history saw some of the bravest acts in American's history. We will always honor the heroes of 9/11. Here at this hollowed place we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice."

George W. Bush (At the Pentagon)

 A Day that it will be etched in our hearts and minds throughout our lives.

Total Deaths:

The attacks claimed the lives of 2,977 people as well as the 19 hijackers, and injured more than 6,000. Among the dead were 343 firefighters and 72 law enforcement officers, who braved the wreckage of the World Trade Center to try to rescue those trapped inside.

Radical Islamist Terrorist hit America that day

Fifteen years ago, on the early morning of Sept. 11, 2001, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger airliners and redirected the course of modern history. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were flown into the north and south towers of the World Trade Center complex in New York City; 37 minutes later, American Airlines Flight 77 smashed into the Pentagon. At 10:07 a.m., United Flight 93 went down in a field in Pennsylvania.

“Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge -- huge structures collapsing have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger. These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat. But they have failed. Our country is strong. A great people has been moved to defend a great nation.” 

  U.S. President George W. Bush.

THEN --- There was Benghazi.. Another tragedy and another 9/11

The sorrow continues

4 years later and we still are asking   "WHY?"

An Ambassador, and 3 brave fighting men

One died in a place where he believed he might be safe

3 fighting men died fighting to the end knowing in their minds and in their hearts that their brothers were not coming to help them.

AMERICA LET THEM DOWN

An update for me personally.

Babs,

Late last June, had a fall and dislocated my right shoulder. Four days later, my son kidnapped me (sic) and relocated me to North Carolina and established the followup medical requirements including Physical Therapy. I sold my home in Jacksonville and bought a home here. My son is a retired Marine. Obviously, I've been among the missing at FCTP meetings and events, but my heart is still with all. I did cast my last vote in Florida for Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis and held my…
