NEVER EVER FORGET!

edit; posted at 9:11 pm on September 11, 2017.

Sixteen years later. I was on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico when the radio chatter started getting real busy with stuff about planes smashing into NY...sketchy info at best. I was on my way to port (11 hours). When I got there I walked off the boat. called the office and told em I quit, payed $300 for a taxi home, and checked into a hotel to get the TV to go with my internet.

I expected us to be American's after an attack.....

I was sadly mistaken.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Who can forget.

I was at home spending the day playing Red Baron 3D. My wife was taking our young son to get his first haircut and visiting her mother.
Took a quick break to check this forum and saw some early posts about a terrorist attack in New York, but thought it was nothing, maybe a car bomb or something similar. Living in London all my life I was used to the occasional terrorist attack. Just the world being the world.

Then my wife rang me and told me to switch on the TV.

Spent the rest of the day glued to the TV in disbelief.

We are visiting New York in a few weeks. I'll be visiting the 911 memorial to pay my respects

I was driving north on the M74 just north of Moffat on the steep bank and had just come off the telephone to a friend in Canada arranging a trip over for a long weekend for a birthday party. After the call, when I turned on the radio to hear this news of the first aircraft to hit the twin towers, shocking to say the least, when I got in to the house an hour or so later and seen the horror of it all.

It was the UK's worst terrorist incident too, more Britons lost their lives on 9/11 than in any previous terrorist attack.

Rest in Peace, we shall not forget you.
