    [​IMG] I don't think forgotten, just not remembered the way it should be. I still remember that day when we were at the pediatricians office and saw the news report about the planes flying into the buildings/field. It was something I'll never forget. My prayers go out to those who lived with that memory b/c they experienced it first hand
    those who lost friends and loved ones that day. [​IMG]

    I'm sitting about 10 yards from where I was sitting the morning that happened. I remember a radiology tech pushing a C-arm down the hall to the O.R. and she said to me "A plane just hit one of the world trade center towers."

    I said "No way" .. then made my way back to the break room where there were several people watching the news report .. we were discussing what could have gone wrong, etc...

    As we watched, the second plane hit.

    You could have heard a pin drop.. the room went dead silent for what seemed like minutes .. but was only seconds..

    Then someone said "We're under attack ...."

    Gives me chills to relive it ..

    Have You Forgotten?

    ♫ ô ♫ I hear people sayin'. We Don't need this war.
    I say there's some things worth fightin' for.
    What about our freedom, and this piece of ground?
    We didn't get to keep 'em by backin' down.
    They say we don't realize the mess we're gettin' in
    Before you start preachin' let me ask you this my friend.


    Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
    To see your homeland under fire
    And her people blown away
    Have you forgotten, when those towers fell
    We had neighbors still inside goin through a livin hell
    And you say we shouldn't worry bout Bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    You took all the footage off my T.V.
    Said it's too disturbin for you and me
    It'll just breed anger is what the experts say
    If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
    Some say this country just out lookin' for a fight
    Well after 9/11 man I'd have to say right.


    Have you forgotten, how it felt that day?
    To see your homeland under fire
    And her people blown away
    Have you forgotten when those towers fell
    We had neighbors still inside goin' through a livin' hell
    And we vow to get the ones behind Bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    I've been there with the soldiers
    Who've gone away to war
    you can bet they remember just what they're fightin' for

    Have you forgotten
    All the people killed
    Yes some went down like heroes
    In that Pennsylvania field
    Have you forgotten
    About our Pentagon
    All the loved ones that we lost
    And those left to carry on
    Don't you tell me not to worry 'bout Bin Laden

    Have you forgotten? ô ♫ ô

    I don't think we will ever forget. But as time passes, generations to follow will not have the first hand experiences we did. Like Pearl Harbour, my dad remembered vividly.....I only know what happened as history.

    I was working 3rd shift when this happened. My son was crying in the living room with my wife, and it woke me. I walked out there bleary eyed only being asleep for a little over an hour and held him on my lap. He seemed happy, so I turned on the news.

    It was bad, me and the wife sat all day watching the coverage. I was numb, and scared. How many soldiers were going to be recalled to active duty? Was I old enough to be exempted? I was scared because I had gotten married and had my first biological son within that past year and a half.

    We got to work that night and our boss was pretty good about it. He knew a few of us were waiting on phone calls, and when the president gave his address, every radio station in the country played it. The entire warehouse shutdown to listen to his address. There was only 1 thing we knew for sure... We were going to war, one way or another.
