Never ever forget. A formative experience for many of us, civilian or military.

My daughter's high school. I counted 17 vics with flags flying. Hell most of these kids were babies or in my daughters case, not even born yet. Good on them, to know how much this day means and symbolizes.

There are a few more flags out today here locally (NorCal.) A lot of people these days forget just how much our lives changed in just a few morning hours.

Big thanks to all who have served, and are serving right now. And prayers & condolences to all here who have lost someone close to them.

ps - and thanks to all for letting me be a part of this community. I'm honored.

The memorial and museum are incredible. Everyone should take the time to pay a visit.

At my fire department, we always take time on this day to reflect and remember what happened. Today, we watched the documentary from the Naudet brothers, who were riding out with FDNY and captured amazing video.

There are a handful of events throughout my lifetime that I remember exactly where I was when they happened. This was definitely one of them. I reminded my crew today that even though it's been 16 years, we are still at war.

Appreciate those images. I'd never heard of or seen that monument before. Outstanding.

I'll never forget standing in the living room at age 15, as angry as I could be that someone could do this to my country.

I was at ABA nationals at Lake Texoma on that day. When we started coming back in the directors were telling the AD Marines they needed to check in with their units. Most of us were like, "What the hell is going on?".

Never forget.

Never forget. Never forgive.

I often wonder why so many have forgotten, and why so many are willing to forgive....

There were hippie shitbags outside demonstrating 2 weeks after 9/11 in the ToysRus parking lot outside our base with "Drop books not bombs" signs --- chanting all that the typical stupid sheep bleating we've heard before. A person who will not be named took one of my CD cases off the floor of the car and frisbee'd that thing out of the window and nailed a smelly shitbag right in the head. God I miss being young.

Everyone should go to the World Trade Center museum. Very sobering and sad experience.
Human sacrifice. Never forget.

Not much to say. RIP to all of ours, and rot in Hell to all theirs involved.

I was sitting in high school physics class when I heard about the second plane. Over the next few months I would read stories of men parachuting into unknown hinterlands and fighting atop places called Takur Ghar and they solidified my decision to walk into the recruiter's office that summer after graduation.

16 years later, after brothers lost, a country divided, trillions spent, I'm not sure what it was all for. America is certainly not in a better place than it was on 9/10/2001. It's like we all left to go patrol Hadrian's wall while the fools in the rear set to work setting the empire aflame.

RIP to those lost that day and in the days since.
