We Will Never Forget…

never_forget_wtc

Today we take a few moments from lusting after Android, wondering when our cities gets 3G and remember a fateful day. September 11th in one way or another changed all of our lives, it brought all of us together and reminded all of us just how vulnerable we are. September 11th will always be remembered as a tragedy, a day that altered the course of our nation forever. We should also remember it as a day when our nation came together and said in one voice we stand united with the workers of the World Trade Center, workers in the Pentagon and the families of Flight 93 victims. We should remember the candlelighting’s that took place in cities across the country, the American flags that were decorated trees and houses across the nation in numbers never yet seen. We should remember the heroes that ran toward the danger, willing to trade their lives to help another, we remember the members of law enforcement and fire departments across the country who drove to New York and said today our baseball rivalries and our political affiliations don’t matter, we are one. We should remember on that day that America stood with one voice, no matter the age, no matter the skin color, no matter the gender that we stood shoulder to shoulder as one and said we will never forget.

Please feel free to join our discussion and talk about where you were that day.

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, and the funerals of our children. “
- President George W. Bush, November 11, 2001

    The image I saw on TV that very day will never leave my mind when I saw the 2nd plane fly into the building. My thoughts and prays are with everyone that was affected by this tragedy.

    I live in Miami and I remember I was late to work, at around 9:30 I was trying to call work but all circuits were busy, I had no idea what was going on, people on the train were ”rumoring” that a small plane had crashed into a building in NY. when I got to work I logged on to my dial-up aol account (No DSL at that time) and finally got to find out what happened.

    The shock turned into fear that turned into anger that eventually turned into a renewed sense of patriotism.

    My life has never been the same, God bless those who died, their familes and those fighting for our freedom.

    God bless America.

    i woke up that morning and went outside i looked up all i saw was fighter jets i said what happened to my friend he said 2 planes just hit the towers. i ran to my friends building and went on the roof where there were a whold bunch of people already there. on my way to the roof only one tv station worked and i saw a guy waving a flag on top of the one of the builings. about two minutes after i got to the roof i saw one of them collapse. the one thing that came to my mind was that poor guy but when i realized how many people was there and on the ground man i started crying. i think that was the first time as an adult that i really cried cause i felt bad. all those people died in vain but thankfully god is now watching over them.

    I was and still am in NYC, lived through it, and lost people close to me, and still flinch a little when airplanes fly low over head (I live in a flight path in Brooklyn, see them at Shea Stadium, etc). And that in mind, I ask you all to LET IT GO with the annual “we will never forget” bullshit. Don’t forget about it, but Jeezus, just move on already and think about why shit like this happens and why we’re mired in a useless war and what we can do instead to make the world a better place for everyone.

    The jpgs of rippling flags and teary eyed bald eagles make me want to vomit. And no disrespect to the author, but this is the kind of statement that will lead to more tragic events like 9-11, mark my words:

    Hey guys… I know this is totally off the subject… And I’m very sorry to thoughs who lost friends or family, but since this is a cell phone blog, on a little lighter note, customer care said the engineers might be launching 3G in Los Angeles as I speak. There has been a spew of problems to which customer care usually knows what the problem is when it comes to that, and said that they are most likey flippin the switch on 3G and it’s affecting some phones. I’m going to believe what they say since we’ve already launched 3G in like 7 markets. Just thought I’d let you guys know.

    My prayers for those who lost their loved ones this day 7 years ago. One of my colleagues cousin was in one of the towers.

    Another friend of mine was still in the lobby and was seriously injured. He had to go through a series of reconstructive surgeries.

    But the question is not if we will remember or forget, question is will we (as a humanity) learn anything from this? If we learn, correct and move on then the sacrifices of many families would not have gone waste. If we learn nothing, then this cycle goes one. they bomb, we bomb, they kill, we kill………… without any resolution.

    At the end of the day, its politics. got nothing to do with the common man in any part of this world.

    I think the post was appropriate and very moving. We do need to remember what happened and more importantly, the response that came about because of it. Our nation came together as one. We saw members of Congress work together regardless of party affiliation. We were moved to remember the important things in life… family, friends, honor, loyalty.

    I hope it’s a reminder that we continue to work towards the worthwhile things in life and cut out the baggage that holds us back.
