    I was listening to Glenn Beck this morning. He was interviewing the author of a new book, "The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11". The most chilling line in the book was from an American Airlines check in agent:

    Mr. Atta if you don't go now you will miss your flight.
    Never forget.

    I spend the day showing students a compilation of the live news coverage of the day. We're already getting kids who don't really have any idea that 9/11 happened or what it was. Even as a kid, I knew about Pearl Harbor, and that was 35 years before I was born, so "they weren't born yet" doesn't fly. Too much of society has dropped the ball, and is forgetting.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    Crap like the NY Times headline today aren't helping. Something like "planes crashed into buildings 18 years ago today" rather than Islamic terrorists is appalling.

    I remember that day. I wonder if anyone remembers that before 9/11. That they could visit relatives or such in a airport terminal? I had/have some photos of me visiting some relatives at a terminal in Honolulu airport way back in about 1998. I also remember vaguely before it happened, that people could visit the cockpit. Remember that scene in Airplane? That actually happened.

    One used to be able to actually arrive at the airport half an hour before your flight and make it.

    The real problem is we did exactly what they intended for us to do. Started living our lives in fear. And the anti 2A fear mongers are just making it worse.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Mercy!

    I should have mentioned never to forget and pray for the families of the *first responders* that ran into the burning towers to save lives and lost their own.

    Cannot agree more, the number of folks suffering and dying today as follow up to the attack now numbers over 33,000.
