Default 9/11

The lowest turnout ever. Pretty much only family members in attendance.

As a nation, did we forget?

As a whole I would say no. The dynamics/politics of it all has changed so much to the negative since then which I think doesn't help. Many heart felt responses on several threads on this site to show the love is still there.

Did we forget? No.

But, you can bet attendance at Pearl Harbor memorial and remembrance services on December 7, 1942 was much greater than on December 7, 1955.

It has always been thus.

I didn't, but only because it's my wedding anniversary too.

It has been 14 years and I think more than a few don't remember, but if you bring it up none of us forget.

Does anybody remember the day when color , race , religion and political affiliation didn't matter? The day when Police and Firefighters were the biggest HEROES on the planet....the day when we were all just AMERICANS ??

I remember the day. The sight, the sound, and the smell. Can't forget.

...but I also don't want to relive it every year. Every time I see it feels like it just happened and while I am not trying to forget or dismiss what happened, I don't want to go back there.

No, never will forget. The whole stadium at Friday night football had a moment of silence to recognize that horrible event. My wife and I watched some of the Fox special on it last night.

We need more glass in this world.

The two things that I will always remember is the smell and the steel beam
that impaled the train station.

It is much nicer down there now with all the new buildings under construction.
But you can still feel the energy of that day.
