I come back to it every year. God bless you, Tilly.

 

As do I, Smoosie. And I share it with friends and family. It is important that we do not forget, and accounts like Tilly's go a long way to understand what happened. Thank you, Tilly.

I come back to it, too. It is an amazing account. Today, working in a federal building right downtown DC, I feel like I have a target on my back. I know I shouldn't - risk is only slightly higher than on any other day - but I just can't forget.

 

Nor do I want to. Never forget.

Some things grow less and less devastating as the years roll by.

 

This ISN'T one of those things.

 

NEVER forget.

Thank you for finding the strength to share this then, and God bless you and your family always. We will never forget.

Tilly I hope you and your family are still doing well. Fifteen years. I wasn't there, but reading your account brings back memories of that time. Little things like in the days after seeing no air traffic except for military, watching Major Bob on Fox News doing analysis with a look on his face that suggested he would like nothing better than to kill those responsible by himself. He also posted on this board a few times. And inexplicably, air travelers being interviewed complaining about being stranded at airports.

 

I also remember stories of Canadians providing places to stay for Americans who were stranded in that country. That's a kindness that should never be forgotten.

 

Never forget is what people say about that day and they are right. Unfortunately, far too many people have forgotten, and I'm afraid that is going to prove costly.

It is that time of year again. Wanted to be sure I read this again as I will be abroad on 9-11.

 

As ever, all the best to you and yours. And thank you for helping ensure that we never forget.

Yup.

 

I won't be abroad, and it's a week early, but now's as good a time as any:

 

NEVER FORGET!

What's really strange is how fast the years pass now between readings. I will always remember. Hope you are well, Tilly.

18 years ago. Hard to believe.

 

It is important to remember that people cheered this event, and not just radical Muslims.

 

This event was cheered by American citizens as well. We all know this. It was cheered by people who teach in our schools, and people who run for and hold political office, among others. Americans. Who cheered this.

 

That is why we can never forget. The enemy won't. And the enemy is here.

I read this every year on this date, and encourage others to read it too. It is very important to remember and to make sure those who were too young learn about it. My parents and their siblings told us kids many times about what they were doing when Pearl Harbor was hit. How they were glued to the radio, what the feeling was around their community and the country. It is important that the young people learn these things.
