    I WILL NEVER FORGET!

    I remember that day like yesterday. The utter shock at the situation and disbelief that a group of people would stoop so low to hijack planes and do this.

    Yup. Was back in college at the time. Drew my own line in the sand. A day or so later ALF or ELF, one of those radical eco-terror groups tried to fire bomb my forestry department. Was actually happy to hear it was them and not ALQ or a retaliation against our international students. I can tell you that I cleared my college apartment block like a motherf'er when I heard about the bombs. Tried to be stealthy and discreet, but seriously freaked out this one dudey down in one of the laundry rooms I didn't expect.

    I know that this post is about September 11, 2001, but let us not forget about September 11, 2012 as well.

    Ambassador Chris Stevens.
    RET Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods.
    RET Navy SEAL Glen Doherty.
    Diplomat Sean Smith.

    Although not as many deaths as the first 9/11, still very sad.
    On the 8th day, God created Paratroopers.
    And the devil stood at attention.

    God protect the quiet professionals that went anyway when they were ordered to stand down

    May the fallen rest in peace, may the survivors learn to sleep at night, and may the greasy goat grabbing bastards that caused it burn in Hell for all eternity
    It's what a man knows about himself inside that makes him afraid.
