I'll take it as a TOTD.......
I was at home waiting for Bob Maab to take our new homeowners association Constitution and Bylaws to a lawyer in Galena, MO, for review. When he got to the house, the WTC towers were struck. We watched the events on the TV.
Where were you?

Today is a sober day of rememberance. I hope that the kids today learn the truth and not the PC correct pablum that some of the schools are dishing out. They need to learn to be resolute and not bow to the forces of evil.

It was hard to watch today and explaining why so many people were sad on tv to my youngest and my neice as they saw me crying over the place. I will make sure my children and my neices and nephew never forget what happened

I flew out of Newark on September 9th, moving to Sarasota. 9/11 - Just got our of shower and had news on in bedroom getting ready to call my Mom - 9/11 is her birthday - and hear Matt Laurer say something about a wild report.
Spent the rest of the day glued to the tube wondering if we were looking at WWIII

We drove by AMC Headquarters yesterday, and they had the flag at half mast. My son saw this, and he said that they needed to fix it. I told him no, it was supposed to be that way today. He said "Oh. The flag is sad today."
At three years old, he had no clue what had happened that day, and he had no clue just how right he was.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

The Casino New York in Las Vegas had a big celebration...with a memorial.
Some of the pictures are touching but it pisses me off as I know they made money. :mad:

When he moved to Las Vegas in 2004, Vehlies made a habit of visiting the tribute wall in front of the New York-New York on the Strip. He would scan the granite display, reading messages left as tribute in front of the hotel in the days after 9/11, searching for names he knew. He found several.
It was not lost on him that he -- a native New Yorker and volunteer firefighter who was across the street from the World Trade Center on the day that terrorists attacked the United States -- visited a themed casino seeking a connection to his friends and his home.
But, to him, the harbor with its tugboat, Statue of Liberty replica and permanent 9/11 display, represented a little piece of New York.
"It's good that it's there. It's something that's needed," Vehlies says. "I think New York-New York did the right thing by keeping it there."
The more I read online, it seems the the memorial has helped many during the grievng process.
