Remember not just the horrors, but the
heroes of 9/11

Original Article

Twenty years on, more than 7,300 days, and the images and stories can still bring you right back to that terrible day. But the 9/11 anniversary is, and always will be, a time to remember not just the horrors but the heroes. The moments of silence, starting at 8:46 a.m., are rightly when we pause and reflect on the nearly 3,000 lost to the terror attacks. The reading of names by loved ones is always a heartbreaker, perhaps even more so now that some of those who take the stage were babes in the womb when the towers fell.


Never forgive. Never forget.

A Day to Remember…Terrorists Never to Forget 1 reply

Watching the 20-year anniversary coverage of the 9-11 terrorist attacks brought back a day to remember! Just before I was beginning to speak on managing change to Verizon leaders in Niagara Falls, I was handed a note. It read simply, “A plane had just crashed into one of the Twin Towers.” The executive whispered to me, “We’re going to have to cancel. We are one of the principal carriers in New York City. We have to get our people back to the city.” By the time we had left the meeting room and entered the lobby, we saw the second plane fly into the second tower.

Say you’re sitting at a red light. You just stopped. You’re dutifully switching between podcasts on your IPHONE. Maybe answering that text from your boss. You’re minding your own damn business. Maybe the driver who is right behind you is distracted. Their dog got loose in the back. Maybe their kids are crying. Next thing you know, they are attached to your rear bumper. You are pushed past the red light into the middle of traffic. Your airbags deployed and you have that delightful little powder in your eyes. People are yelling, confusion has set in. You're reeling. How the hell did that happen?

The city of Boston honored one of its own, U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo, who was one of the 13 service members killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul days before last month’s pullout from Afghanistan, on Saturday, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Rosario Pichardo’s remains arrived at Logan International Airport where her mother, grandmother, and three siblings awaited and were overcome with grief as her casket was removed from the plane. A number of political leaders including both of Massachusetts’ U.S. senators, Democrats Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, as well as Gov. Charlie Baker, Boston Mayor Kim Janey,

Reports of voting issues are coming out of California in advance of Tuesday’s special recall election when the fate of embattled Governor Gavin Newsom will be decided, leading to confusion and suspicion among some voters. According to a local news report, residents who went to cast their votes at a Woodland Hills high school were shocked when they were told that they had already voted according to computers. The problems occurred at an early voting site at El Camino Real Charter High School where several people were informed by staffers that they wouldn’t be able to cast their ballots and were given provisional ballots instead.

On the 20th anniversary of 9/11 Saturday night, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, his NYPD commissioner of the day, Bernie Kerik, members of SEAL Team Six which killed Bin Laden, and other veterans of the war on terror gathered at Cipriani Wall Street for a night of bittersweet memories. There were tributes to the fallen and a celebration of the “largest evacuation” in US history, with 25,000 people saved from the Twin Towers, thanks to the selfless courage of the first responders. Giuliani praised the NYPD as “the best law enforcement agency in the world” and gave an entertaining speech

The oldest living World War II veteran has celebrated another trip around the sun — his 112th, to be exact. Lawrence Brooks was feted Sunday with birthday drive-by at his home in New Orleans, with video showing the bespectacled vet wearing a mask and Saints jersey and waving to the small crowd. He advised others to “serve God and be nice to people,” according to WDSU. Born on Sept. 12, 1909, Brook served in the US Army from 1940 to 1945 as part of the predominantly African-American 91st Engineer Battalion.

Photographers who shot some of the most unforgettable images on Sept. 11, 2001, and the days after remember the stories behind the pictures. Aristide Economopoulos “I had too much sake the night before. I lived in Jersey City and wasn’t supposed to start my day until 3 p.m. to shoot a local 13-year-old web designer, but my mom called at 8:22 a.m. to tell me what had happened. I took a ferry into lower Manhattan. I was 30 then and had only moved to New York less than a year earlier — I’d never even been to lower Manhattan. That day we saw the best in humanity
Texas hospital system bans ivermectin

A Texas hospital system imposed "new restriction criteria" on the use of ivermectin, excluding the anti-parasitic agent from treatment of COVID-19. St. Luke's Health will only allow its infectious disease physicians to use the drug for preventive treatment of strongyloidiasis, a roundworm infection, according to a Sept. 2 directive shared with Just the News. Its wording suggests that non-infectious disease physicians had been considering or actually prescribing ivermectin for COVID patients. The relatively cheap treatment has been promoted by an eclectic group of influencers. Evolutionary biologist and former Evergreen State College professor Bret Weinstein has regularly touted ivermectin on his DarkHorse podcast, which led YouTube to demonetize his channel.

Since our founding in 1776, the United States or her territories have been attacked 16 times before September 11, 2001. Unlike military attacks by foreign powers in 1812 (Great Britain) and 1941 (Japan), September 11, 2001 was an attack on the United States by terrorists; not a foreign country but a group of 19 radical individuals from four countries that took exception with America's free, open and inclusive society. WHY THEY ATTACKED US America stood for the promise of inalienable rights for all…for life, liberty, private property and the pursuit of happiness. 9/11 was an attack on the very reason we exist – our love of freedom,

Editor’s Note: This account was originally shared on the political message board “RightNation.Us” on September 11, 2003. It details the firsthand experience of “Tilly” — who miraculously lived through that harrowing day. “Tilly” was kind enough to let me share this on (on “Gillespie” which I co-hosted or possibly my own show, “Q With a View”) several years ago. I am excerpting it here but highly encourage you to read the entire account. I return to read it every year. And it always delivers a gut punch. This year, I made a point to take my time with it; to stop and visualize the directions

The diversity office of a Maryland county planned to commemorate 9/11 by hosting a play that it said “explores themes like Islamophobia” and “expose[s] the racial and ethnic prejudices” against Muslims — in which the main Arab-American character admits he was “proud” when the Twin Towers fell, and another says America “deserved what it got.” Howard County was set to host the play on Saturday, the twentieth anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans. “County Executive Calvin Ball will provide opening remarks,” an announcement from the county executive and the Office of Human Rights & Equity said.

Many media and political figures expressed outrage online after former President George W. Bush appeared to use his speech commemorating the 20th anniversary of 9/11 to compare January 6 Capitol protesters to the Islamic terrorists who viciously attacked America, killing nearly three thousands innocents and wounding more than double that number.Speaking at the 9/11 memorial service for Flight 93 in Pennsylvania, Bush recalled the September 11 attacks while warning of future terrorist threats to the United States.“We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within,” he said.

I held off on writing about the “F*** Joe Biden” chants that began at college football games a couple of weeks ago. I had three reasons. First, I’m not a fan of obscenities because I think they cheapen speech. Second, these chants were initially small groups at Southern colleges, which really didn’t seem like a “thing.” Third, I wasn’t going to get excited until I learned whether the chants had legs. Well, it turns out they do have legs and they’re becoming large chants at multiple games (including New York baseball games). And most importantly, Joe Biden knows about them and isn’t happy.

Lowville, New York—Lewis County General Hospital will stop delivering babies after September 24 because too many maternity unit workers have resigned over COVID vaccination mandates. That’s according to Lewis County Health System Chief Executive Officer Gerald Cayer, who held a news conference Friday in Lowville. He said 6 employees in the maternity unit resigned rather than get a COVID shot and another 7 are undecided. According to Cayer, the hospital will be unable to safely staff the unit and will pause delivering babies after September 24.(Snip)Cayer said 165 hospital employees have yet to be vaccinated against COVID-19; that’s 27 percent of the workforce.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that they did not hear President Donald Trump’s 2020 election case because it did not meet “normal criteria.” Anchor Chris Wallace said, “One of your arguments against seeing the court’s political is the fact that it refused to even hear the appeals from the Trump campaign about the 2020 election. Didn’t even hear it them.” In a video, former President Donald Trump said, “No judge has had the courage, including the Supreme Court — I am so disappointed in them...

George W. Bush appeared at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Saturday to honor those who died on 9/11. It was an interesting speech, but not necessarily in a good way. (snip) Bush said that Islamic violent extremists are the same as domestic violent extremists when it comes to their “disregard of human life.” The big question is whether Bush was referring to Antifa and BLM or to the January 6 protesters—and, interestingly, everybody assumes he was speaking about the latter. (snip) Considering that the January 6 protesters killed no one and destroyed nothing, the words are inapposite to them. They apply perfectly to BLM and Antifa

There’s a reason that the folks who plan Joe Biden’s days decided that he shouldn’t give any official remarks today as he visited the three 9/11 sites for remembrance ceremonies. I think they knew that if he opened his mouth and stuck his foot in it on such a solemn occasion, this time it would be before the world and it would be too hard for media to ignore. So as we reported earlier, they prerecorded some remarks for him where he spoke, gazing off into the distance, about “unity,” and looking like death warmed over. He did show up at the 9/11 ceremony at Ground Zero and then later

Americans are fuming and pessimistic at this time, that’s for sure.

But wait, there’s more. Another 69% of U.S. adults now say that things are going “pretty or very badly” in the country these days—that includes 91% of Republicans, 72% of independents and 49% of Democrats. And by the way, illegal immigration is still a concern for many in this nation. The CNN survey also found that 77%

The wheels of insanity in the OBiden Administration are about to fall off again. Rather than solidifying President Trump’s policy of peace in the Middle East, OBiden’s actions are likely to blow the entire region up into another OBiden mess. President Trump went to the Middle East and visited world religious leaders on his first overseas visit in an effort to bring peace to the Middle East. President Trump inherited ISIS terrorizing the Middle East as well as Iran and both these terrorist entities were backed by the OBiden gang. President Trump’s strategy was peace, not horror and destruction.
