Thank you very much for that, SO et. al. That was very touching and a very appropriate reminder of who should be remembered today.
I concur with everyone here when I say well done on the flash presentation.
However, why do we all just remember them on September 11th? Since when is this the only day that we feel the need to make special recognition to
those that sacrificed it all for Freedom? Shouldn't they always be getting praise from those of us that were spared from death, save for their swift
actions as a united group.
I, for one, am always, every single day, thinking of those that lost their lives doing what they usually do, and that's what makes it hit so close to
home. They were doing what you and I do everyday; they were going to work, when their lives were shattered and destroyed. I understand anniversaries
and all, but could we have one for good things, rather than evil ones? Why is it that we like to memorialize these moments of evil?
I just ask that the next time that you all are going to work, or are at work, just remember, remember
that there are a lot of people that were,
are, and will be less fortunate than you ever will be. And also be thankful that you have what you do. Take stock in knowing that you've been given
the gift of a lifetime; life.
ATS, I, TheBorg, commemorate EVERYDAY as a day of memory to those that died on September the 11th, 2001, and I hope that all of you will stand beside
me in a moment of silence everyday, if for no more than a minute. Those minutes, everyday, will add up over time. Those people, OUR people, deserve
nothing less than the best.
For Free people everywhere, I love you.
