    I would expect that seeing those things first hand is a sobering experience - heck even just the pics bring it all home. Thx Bruce for sharing your visit.

    I was greatly saddened of late to hear just how many premature deaths there have been, and I guess more will still come - among emergency type personel - much as anything it seems due to respiratory problems and complications.

    These too are folks who in a sense also gave their lives in all that.

    It still breaks my heart.

    But there's one thing that absolutely infuriates me:

    How soon people forget.



    They don't forget that it happened, or the people affected, or even the days following.




    What they forget is the feelings that they had after it happened. There wasn't a single American that didn't support President Bush's call to the War on Terrorism.

    But, just a few short years, and they all forget. Just like Vietnam. Just like Korea. They all support it until they get bored. Then they have to find something else to bide their time. So they switch sides. Now they say we shouldn't be doing anything.

    I hate the fact that something like this will one day happen again. I hate that people will have to die, but our security is still not what it could be.

    And, We'll all see, right after whatever happens next, Patriotism will blossom like springtime. Everyone will be John Q. Patriot. Then a few more years, and they'll be back at the same old thing. Whining and complaining that we shouldn't be fighting in other countries.

    I wish America had a longer-term memory. At least concerning emotions. Maybe the networks should re-air all the footage from September 11th. Then maybe they'll remember.

    I'll stop.

    Jarhead79,

    Your post is 100% correct, best I've read in a long, long time.

    Thank you, Sir!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Jarhead, I'll never forget. I lost some dear friends in WTC. I wish I was 10 years younger and 50 pounds lighter. I'd as for my commission back.

    The networks don't want to show the footage...it might remind the that we are at war, and all the "healing" and "time to move on" stuff they have been spewing might fail.

    I do know that every time I see the footage, it evokes a very strong reaction in me...

    The people behind the terrorists have an extremely long memory...that memory is at least 1,000 years long.
    Our domestic, average "American Sheeple Memory" lasts about 3 years or right up until the next "OJ" or Michael Jackson type trial pops up.

    You are, of course, correct on all points. People forget quickly. We are unable to focus as a country and it will happen again. I, too, wish I were younger and could re-enlist but since that's not realistic, I hope I won't live to see it....
