Never Forget

Eight years later, there's one memory of 9/11 that still haunts my dreams.  I can't speak of it, but Cathryn Friar does at RightPundits, and sums up my feelings more eloquently than I could have today.

Desperate people jumped from all four sides of the north tower. They jumped alone, they jumped in pairs and they jumped in groups. They jumped holding hands.Nobody survived on the floors from which people jumped. Ultimately the jumpers, often called the day’s most public victims, chose not whether to die but how they would die. I am quite certain I would not have such courage.

Good Lord, I don't know how anyone can watch that video with dry eyes. When I stared at my TV, watching in disbelief, I knew the world would never be the same again...

Forgot to mention also: I won't forget the Palestinians dancing in the streets. Nor will I forget Yasser Arafat getting that video pulled from the news feed.

I was talking to my kids about that day and being in NC with you. They couldn't believe that ALL airliners were grounded in America and that air space was closed completely. I will never forget.
