    16 years…..it’s such a burned image in my memory that it’s so difficult to grasp it has been 16 years!

    When my wife and I saw on live TV the second plane hit she screamed in horror and realization that it was not just a horrible accident but that we are under attack. I’ll never forget that moment.

    Today in Texas, beautiful sunny day, much like that day 16 years ago. My thoughts and prayers to all first responders not only on that day but for those working the fires in Montana, Houston and the yet to be seen havoc in Florida.

    God Bless

    I was there. Survived. It wasn’t my time.

    Thoughts and prayers out not only to those who died that day and their families, but those who have paid the ultimate price keeping us safe and ensuring it will never happen again.

    I will probably never forget that day, but I will also never forget the sacrifice made on our behalf, ever.

    SSD, if you could post a picture of the America’s Response Monument (De Oppresso Liber), I believe that would be appropriate.

    I remember right when it was announced that this plane crashed, I knew without a doubt it was the passengers that fought back and brought it down.
