September 11 2001 was not the first attack on the trade towers. The first one was February 26 1993, it claimed 6 victims. It did not bring down the towers but they hoped it would. Those that would threaten our way of life have a long view so should we. Please remember.................. Where were you on September 11 2001? I took of from Boston Logan airport very early in the morning. From there I flew to Newark NJ, then to LAX. I had been in the hotel maybe 30 or 40 min. I woke up and couldn't sleep. I turned on the TV and they were talking about a light twin hitting the trade towers. They showed the replay, I know it was no light twin and it was not an accident. Then I saw the second plane hit. I knew we were under attack. Latter that morning my wife told me there were long lines for gas. Two men got in an argument in line. When a cop tried to calm them down they turned on him. I was a thousand miles from home and no way to get there to take care of my family. Several times the next 6 or so days I would be called to the airport to try to get the jet home, only to be told we could not fly. I will never forget walking on the beach and seeing a destroyer parked in line with the runways of LAX. Its job was clear. I ask tomorrow you remember the 2,996 people that lost their lives. Every day people in the towers, some jumping to their death rather then be burned alive, some trying to help. Remember the First responders, Police and Firemen That ran in, not away. Our sheep dogs. Remember our service men some that would be sent to foreign lands to fight. But on that day some were sent in to the air With orders to take out any aircraft that did not comply with orders to land. Remember the air crews of those flights. I converted my NRA membership to a life membership today, tomorrow I will be on the range. But most of all I will renew my resolve. Never Agin.
