    I spent yesterday watching the History Channel. All day long they covered the entire event. I wanted to rewatch and examine the men and women during the tragedy and aftermath. I was looking for paper masks, oxygen masks, etc. I saw that many, many rescue workers, firemen, everyday people, had on nothing at all. Many had on paper masks, and some had oxygen masks that were hanging around their necks.

    It's truly a shame what's happening to these heroes who risked their lives to help people they didn't even know. Now, they are having to beg and fight for help.

    Here's a link to the first posts made about 9/11. It's crazy to read what some of us predicted.

    palestine is gonna be toast.

    this could be WWIII guys. pretty amazing stuff.

    Rumor is ther's a hyhjacked plane still in the air somewhere!!!!

    This is UNREAL stranger then fiction!

    There is going to be retaliation byt the US and could very well lead to war. God Bless the people of NY today and they're families OMG!!!!

    this is going to have bad repercussions. I don't think we even know what's going to happen.

    I saw this thread, and wanted to go back and read the replies b/c i wasn't on the board at the time.

    We should all look at the pics again and hear it again. We do not ever want to let this horrible thing leave our memory. We should not forget. We should remember what a price we paid.We should not go soft on terrorists and forget what they have done to our county.

    I felt like vomiting when i read what some of the other jws wee saying. JWS judgment indeed.

    Does anyone truly believe that, three years later, we have made our world a safer place by the actions we have taken to-date? that we have conquered to ANY degree the contributing factors that led us to such a heightened pitch of fanaticism? Yes we may have eliminated some of the perpetrators, punished some of the involved, wreaked some forms of vengeance ..... but have the root causes been addressed? will our children or our children's children be any safer or live in a more harmonious world as a result of learnings from this tragedy?

    I will never forget who the enemy is.

    Pity Bush did ... three years after Sep 11 and instead of persuing the perpetrators he instead started searching for Oil and some easier targets.

    Maybe they will pull Bin Laden out in time for the election though.

    Religion is such a horrible deception.

    Live life, love others. Enough of a moral code for me.

    Have to agree with JoelBear here!

    Amen to Joelbear.

    Also went back and read some of the songs we posted that week....Almost forgotten about the thread of music. Although reading my posts now about wearing red, white and blue saddens me. I'm so disillusioned now and totally hate politics.

    At 1:16am I wrote that I'd see everyone tomorrow. Eerie that the next day would be so tragic.

    stephen posted this, so true...


    In Europe and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria
    Conditioned to respond to all the threats
    In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
    Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    It would be such an ignorant thing to do
    If the Russian love their children too

    How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy
    There is no monopoly of common sense
    On either side of the political fence
    We share the same biology
    Regardless of ideology
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too

    There is no historical precedent
    To put words in the mouth of the president
    There's no such thing as a winnable war
    It's a lie we don't believe anymore
    Mr. Reagan says we will protect you
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too

    We share the same biology
    Regardless of ideology
    What might save us me and you
    Is that the Russians love their children too
