President Barack Obama lauded American unity Tuesday as the country marked a somber but low-key anniversary of the 9/11 attacks under crisp blue skies poignantly reminiscent of 11 years ago. “The true legacy of 9/11 will not be one of fear or hate or division,” Obama said at the Pentagon near Washington…

Reflecting on 9/11


By: Carla B.

Tuesday, September 11th marks the 11 year anniversary of the  9/11 terrorist attacks. People from all over the world will reflect and remember the fallen. Just as past generations still take time to remember travesties like Pearl Harbor and the JFK assassination.

September 11, 2001

It was a day where words failed us. Images of a airplane crashing into the Twin Towers and the resulting fire and black clouds of smoke will be seared into our minds for a lifetime, I am sure.

Sitting at my desk  in horror, watching ABC news via my computer screen, colleagues huddling around my monitor,  lump in my throat…wanting to scream… but nothing would come out.

Over a decade later I have a better grasp of my emotions and exactly what we lost. Not only the heart wrenching loss of over 3000 innocent civilians but ‘something‘ more…

Praying we will be able to get that ‘something’ back… in my lifetime…my children’s life time.

For the rest of my life I will forever dread the alignment of those numbers — 9 1 1, and the tears running down the ashy faces of service men and women, children, mothers and fathers…

The United States of America is a powerful nation indeed, however we still live in an “America,” whereas war can have no ending…because we have no clear purpose…no clear adversary. We are not just fighting nations; we are fighting civilians, mercenaries, religious ideologies and millionaires.

In the war against terrorism, there will never be an “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” it will always be 9/11.

And eleven years later, we haven’t forgotten.

We have progressed….spreading freedom around the world. We stood our ground…said this would not stand, that those responsible would be brought to justice—and that’s exactly what we did.

We recognize that all our service men and women and emergency responders have given something of themselves to their community and their country and some have given all — laying down their lives to defend the freedoms we hold so dear.
Cheap calls to Ghana
Today, we especially honor those who have given their lives in the defense of liberty and recognize everyone who has worn the uniform of this great nation….?

To all our veterans and emergency responders EOTM thanks you…all of your for your service! You serve as an example to inspire others who follow in your footsteps.

How will you reflect on 9/11? Where were YOU  when the news was received? Please share below in the comments.

  • Cain CawthonLiars! From the very top on down, my government does not know the meaning of the word “truth.” In light of the billions of dollars we spend on electronic communication monitoring installations at Menwith Hill, Britain, and at several sites in the continental United States, we taxpayers have been deceived. Our NSA claims to have worldwide monitoring capabilities over all electronic communications.It is inconceivable that with all the electronic communications before 9/11, some intelligence was not deciphered and passed on to the appropriate officials. When, where, by whom was the necessary intelligence intercepted, interpreted, analyzed, collated and forwarded to the responsible agencies and parties? Polygraphs everyone? —

  • Tanya BlakeSeptember 11 is a lot about the enemy from without. But the enemy from without will never, try though it may, extinguish the American experiment. We Americans, on the other hand, are armed and capable of such a result. As I fear us more than them, September 11 has little changed my life..

  • Stephan Wills‎..I honestly have come to the conclusion that our own government is the one that is deceitful. Call me a conspiracy type person, but our federal government has taken what occurred on 9-11-2001 and turned it into a opportunity to go after anyone that says a bad word.Our rights as citizens have highly been altered, with forced inspections at airports, and now railroad stations. What used to take very little time to get a passport has now required individuals to wait up to 6 months to get one.We are no longer permitted to photograph inside of Federal Buildings, or even the exterior for that matter, and while the Police have been using Gestapo type tactics for years, it has gotten much worse. We are turning into a police state where everyone is encouraged to rat others out for even minor offenses, because we all know if you commit a minor offense as spitting out your chewing gum on a sidewalk, we must be up to something bigger like building bombs or are part of a larger sleeper cell.

    Unfortunately this has led to others being persecuted by our peers. Religions such as Muslims are being perceived in a much different light. We have people at Guatanomo Bay which are being held indefinitely for the rest of their lives because we believe they hold key knowledge to someone in a terrorist organization. Our government feels that it is above the law.

    For instance, take a look at what is going on right now in Quartzsite Arizona. The crooked police chief has suspended 9 officers (with pay for the time being) because they have voted “No Confidence” in the police chief. This same police chief has had individuals escorted from the rooms of public meetings because he did not like what they had to say. This is going on as I write this.

    America needs to open up its eyes and take a look at our own country before looking at others. This is why the terrorist people hate us so much. Our government (Republicans and Democrats alike) have their own agenda and its slowly trying to rip the rights we were given when the Constitution and Declaration Independence were written. The interpretations the government has given is becoming much more ludicrious as everyday has passed.

    As a Veteran of the Armed Forces, a law abiding citizen, and a proud family man I disgress it to say that it has changed me to dislike our government. It comes as no shock to me anymore if someone were to try this again.
