Hey FC'ers,

Always send this out a bit early****

Maybe we can all reflect on that day, while we watch football all weekend. Maybe we can reflect on this while we watch thousands step up to help Houston. Maybe we can reflect on this while we watch Florida be battered.

This moment in our history (9-11) brought us all together. Men and women from all religions, all races, all political parties. Bush was at 88% approval!

We are now a splintered nation, run by the media, and followed by ppeople who breathe, living and dying, by the latest story, post or tweet.

I hope we can reflect upon our country, our future, and ourselves.

The 16th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in the United States.

A lot has changed since that fateful day.

Regardless of your political beliefs or where you stand on the wars, I ask that you do the following over the next two days:

Take 1 minute out of your day to visualize and remember the events of the day.

Take 1 minute out of your day to stop and pause out of respect for those who died- whether it was hero fire fighters, police officers, or employees at work.

Take a moment to bring yourself back to that day- remember your emotions, your anger, your fear, etc.

Remember how unified the country was for the short time after the attacks.

Most of all, remember the victims and their families and those who helped that day.

As we get further away from the day it becomes easier to forget. Lets just take a few moments to stop and remember. And let's do it in a respectful way, putting aside our different beliefs for a couple of days.


God Bless
NN

Thanks NN. I always remember precisely where I was and how, just 30 minutes before the tragedy, I remarked on what a beautiful day it was.

Then I pray for the two people who I knew who were lost that day.

Peace

I was recently listening to the Howard Stern Show broadcast from that day. It is still all too surreal

My wife called me at work around 9:45 and said she was watching the Today Show and a plane had crashed into one of the Twin Towers. 15 minutes later she called again. An hour later everyone was sent home. For the first time in my life, it felt like the world had stopped turning. It did, temporarily. Prayers and thoughts go out to all those directly affected on September 11, 2001.
