Last year, for the 2996 Project, I remembered Brook Alexandra Jackman on this site, and Andrew H. Golkman at the American Flag League. Rather then putting together another video for this year, I would rather just repost 911Plus5. The photos never fail to bring a tear to my eye. But let us also remember the people, our neighbors, who were lost that day fondly.
We can remember them by saying "never again." We can remember them by not allowing the Muslim fanatics, who have the stated intention of destroying modern civilization, to do just that. We can remember them by rebuilding. We can remember them by resisting those who would have a 9/10 mentality. We can make their lost lives meaningful.
At 8:35, take a moment to say a prayer. At the former site of the World Trade Center, firefighters will read the names of all the victims.
You can also see an incredible video at the 9/11 Digital Archive.
For those who just do not believe, perhaps the words of one of the hijackers might change your mind
Al Qaeda traditionally issues a video every year on the anniversary, with the last testament of one of the 19 hijackers involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. This year’s video showed hijacker Waleed al-Shehri, addressing the camera and warning the U.S.: "We shall come at you from your front and back, your right and left."
There is some video of it at CNN.
Others with posts up: Are We Lumberjacks?, Blogs For Bush, the Gun Toting Liberal, Hooah Wife, The Jawa Report, Michelle Malkin, Six Meat Buffet, Wizbang, Ogre’s Politics and Views, Blue Star Chronicles (I’m thinking Bloglines is way behind. Individual visits finding lots of great posts).
Charles at Little Green Footballs has a special header up for the anniversary. Civil Truth at And Rightly So! has a haiku, and Raven has her tribute up. At MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, start with this post, then go home and read all the tributes by Beth, Beth, and Vinnie, and Merri. Also see this one by Merri on her site. Cassandra at Villainous Company has Memory. Texas Fred has his, plus lots of great links. Carol has her tribute up, as does 123 Beta.
I’d like to continue linking, but, work calls. Sigh.
Do you have an interesting post? Well, go ahead and leave a trackback, with a reciprical link back to me. God Bless the USA.
