Well said Matt, and watching football players not standing for the National Anthem on 9/11 makes me think people just don't care about the contry anymore.
I think it was mayor GiovaniHere's also something....this blanket was signed by all the service members at Eskan Village, Saudi Arabia after 9/11 and given to Mayor Can'tspellhisname and the City of New York. It's almost wierd when deployed soldiers send a "care package" type thing back to the US.
I had a similar experience on 9/11. I was also in college at the time. I'm planning a trip to NYC next year to take the family. I've been by myself many times over the years with work and have learned my way around the city pretty well.Never forget, never forgotten!
First year at College - between classes watching on the TV in the atrium. I know exactly where i was sitting and the feeling I felt. I hope those too young to remember, or born after never have to feel that feeling.
I will say if you are in the Dallas area ever, the G.W. Bush presidential library is worth a visit. The 9/11 exhibit is touching to say the least. They have his impromptu speech running every so often and it really brings back seeing him at Ground Zero. If that doesn't get to you, i don't know what could...
An entire generation has grown up in the post 9/11 world.
