We should always remember and never forget. We are not invulnerable. Ever vigilant, we should steel ourselves to the fact that our enemies will attack again.

Yesterday I pulled down One Nation: America Remembers September 11, 2001 from the shelves. It's a Time book so full of photographs, vignettes, timelines and such. Started reading here and there. Came across this in the discussion of Flight 93:Lost it. Gut wrench. Shaking. Crying. Had to get up and go outside.Jeremy Glick was on an Airphone, and so was Todd Beamer. “I know I’m not going to get out of this,” the sales account manager for Oracle, who lived in Cranbury, N.J., told Lisa Jefferson, a GTE Airphone operator. He asked her to pray with him and told her that some passengers might make a run at the hijackers. At some point the father of two, whose wife-- now widow-- is due in January, said absently, “Lisa.”
“Yes,” said Jefferson.
“Oh, that’s my wife’s name. I would like you to call her if I don’t make it through this.”
“That’s my name, too, Todd.”
Of course, I did not have to look at this book. But I felt it my duty to pay respect to the heroes and innocents.
Just in case anyone has forgotten

It's all true, give or take a lie or two.
May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen. +++
It is evident that a large number of the population of US Patriots HAS NOT FORGOTTEN the events of 9/11/2001 when muslim/islamist jihadists attacked the USA.
It is also evident that our Federal Government and specifically Congress HAVE FORGOTTEN the events of 9/11/2001 when muslim islamists attacked the USA as they have encouraged and allowed muslim/islamist jihadists to enter the USA en masse, more than doubling the population of evil doers who want to kill most citizens of the USA.
