I refuse to spend the rest of my life stuck back in 2001. I honor every first responder yet I watch Congress and the Presidents deny their future health care benefits and continue to act in ways which are likely to insure future attacks if that's what 9/11 was in truth. I'll be spending the day hoping we could learn something positive from the past three weeks and move on as a better, more humble nation.
Let's get our scientist back in our departments asap This is ridiculous
For better or worse "current " news will top History
911 was planned by Americans to further the agenda of the military industrial complex. This American will never forget. God bless America. And god damn the government.
9/11 should have a much greater visibility even when hurricanes are bearing down. It is a disgrace to the memory of those lost. I am ashamed of the lack of mention by the media and even Google sports only a small black ribbon with no hyperlink.
