    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    I will never forget the exact spot I stood in my store...the looks of the faces of my employees as well customers ....as watching the towers fall.
    This small reminder hangs on my wall so all who visit my home remembers to...
    Remember the fallen...both in the towers,and on the battle field. God grant them all eternal rest...and peace.
    And Lastly I'll never forget the day we got the devil Bin Laden and sent him to hell.

    An entire generation has grown since the September 11th tragedy. We need to teach them and the future generations about the loses to humanity that resulted. Just as we should never forget Pearl Harbor, We should never let the 9/11 incident fall by the way-side.

    An Athens, Georgia born artist named David Renka specializes in bronze castings. He studied for four years in the Italian Mint at Rome as an engraver. Works by Renka can be found in the National Board of Antiquities in Helsinki, The British Museum in London, at the United Nations, the Vatican, private collections
    and the Presidential Palace in France. His tribute to the 9/11 disaster is a medallion
    that embodies the premise that although the disaster occurred on US soil, many from other countries perished during the attack, and the whole world was a target.

    Mr. Renka entitled his medallion "Never Again, Anywhere", because terrorism should be condemned and not allowed to continue in any form. "For all the victims, everywhere" because though the viciousness of the September 11th attacks and the enormity of the destruction are unique, the suffering of those involved, is not. It is shared by an ever increasing number of "blood" relatives throughout the world." (David M. Renka).

    Never Forget

    The horrific, heinous act that took place 21 years ago today represented an attack on freedom everywhere. Never minimizing the disgusting attack perpetrated on US soil I've got to try to latch on to any positive I can from that day. For at least a brief time afterwards, all party lines disappeared. There was no left or right. We came TOGETHER as a nation. I cannot let that go. That was unity to the core.

    All gave some, and some gave all. Bless those who perished that day.

    I was watching on TV when the second tower was hit. Can't get that image out of my mind.

    I still don't want to see the footage or images. At this point, I guess they'll always trigger that reaction of horror and despair for me.

    Also not real fond of the "Ground Zero Recovery" slabs and third-party "commemorative issues". I applauded raising funds for recovery and for helping the victims, but there's an awful lot of stuff out there that's trampled the line between "respectful observance" and "cashing in".

    Yes, a sad sad day… Still wonder about the Saudi connection.
    We will never know about that…

    I was watching the events on TV with my in-laws who were visiting us. This was when we lived in a Massachusetts. The whole thing was shocking to say the least.

    I won this set as a door prize at my local club. It's one of those things the barkers sold on TV. I hate to think of how much the original buyer paid for it.

    For the newbies who might be lurking, these pieces are ordinary quarters with decals attached to them.

    It even came with a "Certificate of Authenticity!"

    More people killed on 9/11 than Pearl Harbor. I can still vividly remember those planes flying into the towers. I still remember our flying schools teaching the future pilots everything but landing, never raised any red flags.

    Truer words have never been spoken or written... and at this moment in time some 21 years later...we owe it to those who perished in the towers, the Pentagon, as well in a farm field in Pennsylvania, as well our troops who sought to bring justice for all we lost ...long before I was a Democrat, a Republican, or an Independent.....I was an AMERICAN .... a country who isn't perfect....but strives to be the best they can be to oppose those whom are evil....and defend those whom cannot defend themselves.
