I received a call early morning, it started with “WE ARE AT WAR!” I said, “What?” I was told to turn the TV on and saw the second plane hit. From Finland my wife’s parents told us that their news had 5 planes unaccounted for in air space and that they were headed for Los Angeles freeway system. The internet was down and we had no way to know what was rumor and what was fact. I think people are taking this day for granted.
We are lucky that at least 5 attempts in last two years have been foiled or have been limited in scope. The TX Army base, the attempted Christmas bomber, the failed car bomb fuse in time square, the foiled plan to attack a NJ military base, the NY subway plot – there are no shortage of targets and no shortage of desire to kill Americans. Remember. God bless the fallen.
I’d be interested in your own recollection comments
