Re: 9-11-2006

A special thanks to all those armed service men and women out there protecting our freedoms. I will never forget 9-11, and the site of 90,000+ fans at Fed-Ex on Monday waiving those American Flags and screaming there heads off for our beloved team may just bring a tear to my eye. I'm sure we lost some of Redskins Nation on 9-11 so we should all cheer extra loud for them.

LETS ROLL!!! AND HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!

Hey Artmonkhall...did you hear Tom Jackson and Mike Irvin defend Monk and said they don't understand how is it that he isn't in the Hall. They've done it in the pass, but this was like on Tuesday's show. I like the fact they are consistent about their argument.

Re: 9-11-2006

No I didn't hear that. I try not to listen to the guys on ESPN anymore all they ever do is bash us or praise everything the cowgirls do and it pisses me off. It's good to hear that about Monk though. I don't want to highjack the thread right now so I won't go on and on why he should be there. Besides you guys all know anyway.

Re: 9-11-2006

I saw the events unfold on 9/11 from the NJ Turnpike, and spent 5 months working at the WTC during the recovery. I certainly will never forget.

I went to the first Redskins game against the Chiefs after 9/11, I went to last years game on 9/11. Both had unbelievable atmosphere and made me proud to be an American. Show your pride on Monday night, and show the world that we are in fact United.

God Bless America!!! Hail To the Reskins!!!

Re: 9-11-2006

I was working at a news station, and I had to produce some brief local news segment then I was going to take a nap. I thought to myself "ok let's just get this done with real quick then I go on my break" Honestly, when I heard that suddenly breaking news was coming in from New York that a plane hit a building I don't know why but I turned to my co-worker and said "Osama" I was purely speculating. But to watch it unfold was surreal to say the least

I ended up spending 7 straight days working and sleeping in the newsroom. My mom was supposed to be at the Pentagon that day. Luckily, a last second meeting at her office kept her at the last minute. As part of her job, she was actually overseeing the identification of all the bodies at the Pentagon. It was pretty rough on her.

Me and about 20 of my friends and I had come up with kind of a cool idea. For every touchdown the Redskins scored we each chipped in a dollar, for each field goal 50 cents. At the end of the season we wrote a check out to a foundation that was helping the children of Pentagon victims, providing money for them to get a good education. Unfortunately, that was the Marty year so the check was only for like $600. But we got some outside help to bump it over $1000. Not much still, but it felt good to help.

So yeah, it's definitely a day I'll never forget. And as much as I'm looking forward to this game I feel very weird when I say or hear other people say "I can't wait for 9/11"

If no one ever thanked you for that...thanks.


I have a book called "God at Ground Zero" written by a recovery worker. You might want to check it out.

Re: 9-11-2006

I was in criminology class and the professor came in a bit late and sort of nonchalantly said that a plane had hit one of the World Trade Centers (this was still early in the AM, so there wasn't much news yet). I just assumed that a new pilot lost control of a small plane and accidently crashed into one of the towers and that it really wasn't a huge deal. Of course I was completely shocked when I got back to my dorm room and saw the news. In fact, I was watching live when the second plane hit, as I'm sure many of you were.

For some reason I still went to my next class, but we were only there for a few minutes when someone walked in and said another plane hit the Pentagon and that campus was shutting down for the day. I remember getting back to my dorm room only to hear people cheer because class was cancelled; that really pissed me off because I was still shocked from seeing the footage of the plane. In fact, there was almost a fight in the hall because of those guys, but I don't think they'd actually turned on the news yet, so they didn't really know what was up. I know they felt like huge dicks when they finally heard.

All day long we were glued to the TV and the computer and people were freaking out because there is a huge NY/northern NJ population at Salisbury and many people had family in the towers. I had a cousin working in the Pentagon at the time, but he was on the other side of the building, so he was fine.

That night the power went out on campus for a few hours and people really started freaking out, but eventually it came back on and we were right back there, glued to CNN just like before.

The next day I talked to my uncle for an hour on the phone; he retired FDNY in the 90's, but his whole former company was lost in the collapse. I also eamiled my friend in the Marines, because I thought it was pretty obvious what kind of response the US would have.

Like everyone else said, we need to all honor those men and women that lost their lives that horrible day, and we need to put aside our differences and be grateful for those trying to keep us safe everyday.

Re: 9-11-2006

I will never forget that day. I was on an NYC subway under lower Manhattan right around the time the first plane hit. We made it up town without knowing what happened, and I went straight in to teach my Introduction to Ethics class. One student said she had heard somethig about a plane hitting the WTC, but no one knew anything. At 10 am, class ended, and I foud out what happened. I went straight to Lenox Hill hospital to give blood, and found that thousands of New Yorkers had the same idea. We waited in line, quitely talked, and tried to call loved-ones on cell phones. My sister works in DC and I couldn't get through to her. At some point, a business man covered in grey dust wandered into the lobby--he had no shoes, and was still holding his briefcase. He was yelling that the even took his shoes. He had walked away from gorund zero, and a cab brought him uptown. Hospital folk took him to the ER; he was shocked, but unhurt. Later, in a hospital waitig area, we found a computer and watched the video of the planes hitting the towers in silent horror.

RIP to all who died that day and who died to protect our country. Prayers and thanks to those who serve to protect us: NYPD, FDNY, US Army, Airforce, Navy, Marines, National Guard, and everyone else.

Re: 9-11-2006

Man, what a day! The stories are endless.

When I finally got to work that day, I found out that one of my colleague's brother was trapped in one of the towers and was later pronounced dead. Seeing him go through that, just brought everything that much closer to home. After they stopped trading on the NYSE for a full day, it just further amplified the tragedy.

Re: 9-11-2006

I was flying that morning. I took off out of Dulles, two gates down from Flight 77 that hit the Pentagon, about 35 minutes before their flight took off. I'm sure I stood in line at Starbucks with people that died on that plane.

New's had just started to break when I landed in Atlanta for my transfer. Of course they shut down the airspace, so all flights were delayed, but they had also shut off the airport terminal TV's to keep people from panicking. The TV's came back on just as the first tower went down, and from there it was pure pandemonium as people bum rushed the airport exits. I was stranded for three days in Atlanta with no where to go and no way to get there, but it was okay because an amazing family of complete strangers opened their home to me. Without hesitation or reservation they invited me in, fed me, and treated me like some long lost cousin that had just been found.

I have a different view of the world today than before 9/11, but not for the worse. Today I have more faith in humanity now than I ever did before. The Secunda family of Atlanta, GA showed me more about the goodness of people than a hundred 9/11 attacks could ever erase.

That's the best antidote.

Nice.
