    May we always remember those who gave their lives.

    May we never forget how their lives were taken and who took them.

    I've been feeling pretty somber since I woke up...my thoughts and prayers go out to those who stand ready this morning. May you be safe and bring swift end to those who would ever threaten us in such a cowardly way again.

    I've been up since about 5 am today and watching the events on Fox News this morning.

    A very solemn day today as we remember those who lost their lives 10 years ago, which for them, was just another ordinary day. However for all of us, it is now a day which will never be forgotten.

    On a day which so many innocent people lost their lives, 10 years later, so many others continue to sacrifice their lives so that we will never forget. And so many continue to sacrifice so that those who wish to do us harm will know there is consequence in their actions.

    Today, I am sad for all those lives lost. But I am proud to be an American. Proud to be a Veteran.

    I see on TV the new memorial, the two reflecting pools/waterfalls which were once the footprints where the two towers stood and think, "that is nice." I think today, for the first time, some people are starting to heal. Yet, others will continue to struggle. The fight goes on. More will sacrifice, and more will die. The world has changed, but we grow stronger.

    I'm glad to be alive. And on the 10th anniversary, Bin Laden is finally dead. I think today will be a good day.

    For all my DC friends. Stay safe, stay armed, and remain vigilant.

    I try not to watch too much of the memorials and the actual events of 9/11/01 but somehow I am drawn and compelled to.

    It is a roller coaster of emotions of feeling sadness for the victims and anger for the enemies of our country .

    God Bless our troops who are in harms way.

    Today is a day to remember and pray for those who lost their lives and their families. May they find peace in their hearts.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    People should carry whatever they want to carry.
    And any firearm sure beats the heck out of a Bic ballpoint pen in a pinch.
    Amen, brother! May God continue to bless us and comfort the families who lost loved ones ten years ago.

    This is my 5th Sept 11th anniversary spent in an arpmpit somewhere. I do my best to do something special to remember each one.

    It is also fitting that the tenth aniversary also is the first that includes the death of Bin Laden but we all must remember he is now a Martyr in the eyes of this followers their are dozens to take his place, their resolve has been renewed, this battle is far from over. While this is a time for rememberence and healing this is also a time to prepare. Do not take your eyes from the sight nor your finger from the trigger because believe me your enemy has only sought concealment and will return with a vengence.

    I've been watching a lot of 9/11 programs this past week. Yesterday MSNBC replayed their original broadcast uneditted from 9/11. It was chilling. It brought back the memories. All of the conflicting reports, the uncertainty, everything. It was almost like reliving that day.
    64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
