Never Forget

ground zero, 9/11, Tribute in Light

If there was a positive to the feeds being down until tonight, it’s that we can spend the day remembering the tragic events that happened on this day in 2001.  There are only a few things in life where you can easily remember where you were and what you were doing when you heard the news of something, and this is one of those times.  If you’d like to share your stories or post anything positive, feel free to do so.

This is also to remind people that Big Brother is just a game with real people inside it.  Watch this chilling video of Big Brother 2’s Monica, as she learns her cousin was inside the World Trade Center during the attack.  It was later revealed that her cousin did pass away during the towers collapsing.

I was at the gym, left my cell in a locker. Finally left and saw over 10 different missed calls. Called my brother first. He’s yelling and screaming why didn’t I pick up the phone? All of my family is in NY. 3 aunts work on wall street. Ran back into the gym to watch the News. All phone lines were jammed the entire day. Had to work that day at the hospital. They put us on high alert and lock down. One of the crudest physicians at my hospital. Walked into our unit, looked around, and just broke down. I have NEVER seen so many people cry, especially for people they do not know personally. From patients, to visitors, to staff. We were all a mess! That day made us realize how small this world really is and I’m sooooo proud of my fellow Americans for uniting the way we did to help out others less fortunate at that time. It just goes to show you that regardless of the stereotypical BS. We are ALL the same, bleed the same, cry the same, and feel the same, and remember the same!

My daughter was in second grade and my son in pre school at the time. I remember picking them up that afternoon and all the stunned looks on the parents faces. We all took our children home in total silence, not a peep. I hugged them tight that night.

Mark me down all you want. All I see is people defending the words of the HGs or acting just like them. Sometimes both. Fucking think about it!! And with that… I’m out. Free trade? Our oil and gas for what? You not to attack us?? I live near Alaska. You guys keep a LOT of shit up there. It’s terrifying thinking I’ll get bombed because of the greediness of United States Government. It’s just too bad they hit the good people. Should’ve hit the television stations. And with THAT … I’m out.

Just curious…are you for terrorist acts on our soil? Are you saying that you need a platform in which to voice your “displeasure” with United States of America? Do you vote? I don’t think a blog on the gameplay of a TV show is where you need to vent. I also believe, and this is just my opinion, that you Bree and you Me are just as nuts as those men who took over a flight to fly into a building to kill innocent people. Just saying…why the venom? Who has wronged you so much that you would make a blog on a TV show a place to vent your hate? Listen, you can go to any political page and ramble all you want, we really aren’t interested or amused or shocked by your kind of talk….hate is kind of a singular emotion that most life forms do not use in survival. It seem just the human race has that trait and it has never been an asset to moving the race forward and it surely does not make people listen to your rants.

So from this grandma to you….shut up, you don’t add anything to a conversation worth hearing…

@ Casey….WE were on high alert due to our contracts with NASA, Disney, and Universal Studios. That was the second time since WDW opened in 1971 that they closed the parks. The first time was when John F Kennedy was killed/assassinated. Luckily all the other parks followed suit.

My BAD SuzyQ. I meant to say DisneyLAND. You know…the one in California? Yeah that was open then. I should have just said Disney instead of World or Land. But there all the same, so what’s the difference? Does that make it better now? Clearly your intoxicated or maybe your just as stupid as I always thought you were. 9/11 is not my personal tragedy…it’s America’s personal tragedy you moron! For ANYONE to use this day or this blog to act like a fool who is so bent on hatred for the world is beyond me! Forgive me for trying to relate with others on here. It felt good to relate and share on this day. And if I had to do it over again….I would!

NOW, FYI….I was born and raised in NYC. I guess I was blessed to not have lost any family or friends on that day, but it still hurts. But then you wouldn’t know anything about that. Because that concept would require a soul! And please….please don’t beg. It’s just not becoming of your style! Here’s a thought…why don’t you take your MANY multiple personalities (LloydA-Z…cnoodleman….Bree…Suzy Q…ME…etc…etc…etc). Have a Coke and a smile and you STFU!

P.S. This website is all about the HISTORY of Disney. It might stimulate some the nerve endings in your brain. Clearly you need more education and time to grow!

LOL…..Wow! Such language from a person who has proclaimed to have a BS degree in psychology? Surely they taught you better words to express yourself than that? Your BS degree is like BS in my eyes! Your a joke and a poor excuse for a psychologist. You claim to hold a degree that is geared to help people. But Damn near every post/reply from you contradicts that!
Who have you helped with your BB replies on here Ms. psychologist? Hate to be a client of yours! It’s your alter egos that continue to call me out! But look back at ANY blog from Steve and realize that they (YOU) post what you want because you think you can. But they never seem to reply again after being challenged! Hhhmmmm……I smell suspect! Kudos to you for juggling so many monikers at one time and still keeping the alter egos straight! That takes talent and skill! I have to give props to you on that! But I’m scratching my head as to why you think you called me out on anything today? Did you not visit the website I posted? Because I said WDW instead of Disney get lost in that warped brain of yours? Again in case you missed it. I should have said Disney instead of placing WORLD or LAND after it. Just expected a woman (loosely) of your proclaimed education to understand and PERHAPS….Google the history before speaking out of term. IDK….working at Epcot Centers first and only parade (dare not say WORLD). I may have been privy to info not shared with the public. IJS…..IDK….why scare the masses if they don’t have to?

Here is a tidbit for you. One Disney rule is that you can’t point directions or anything with 1 finger (a sign of disrespect to some cultures). So you must use 2 or more fingers to achieve that (SHOCKER). Ask a friend working there about that rule (that is if you have any)!

FYI: I have learned in the last 3 months to expect people to disagree. A concept that is new to me because I have NEVER responded to blogs in the past. So a thumbs down was shocking to me at first. But I am learning to agree to disagree. Clearly you missed the mark on that one!
So you say, “a lot of us think you are an idiot”? It’s cool, but I KNOW who I am and I don’t need multiple monikers to voice my opinion! It’s just me/myself/and I. It is what it is! But what about you? Call me crazy but the multiple thumbs downs and hate replies always occur when you log on. OR when one of your alter egos come on here. Give it a rest and reflect on what YOU learned during your studies in psychology! Good Luck to you and your alter egos.

What happened to that superior vocabulary of yours? You certainly went from wanting to be treated like a mature adult and no one should call names, etc. etc. to having a tantrum like a child. I guess “fuck you” is what happens when someone runs out of words.

I will never forget that day, I was actually on the phone with a collegue in our NY office when the first plane hit. She was in another highrise just down from the towers. She knew something had happened,but didn’t know what. At that time I had a TV/radio in my office and she told me to flip it on, and of course by then the news had it on and we thought it was a fluck, until the second plane hit moments later. People had no idea what to do, stay, leave, or where to go. We both knew she had to get off the phone, but I took down as many emergency numbers for her as I could just before the phones went down. We didn’t hear for 2 whole days if everyone in the office was safe. My son in law was in the Navy, returning from the Mediterainain and his ship was turned around and went back in, even though his tour was over. My daughters and I could only pray and hold onto each other over the whole ordeal. Please talk to your families and friends today and give everyone a hug today and always.

September 11, 2011 was my 50th birthday. I woke up and felt so good about my life. 50 in great health. God to the gym everyday. Just felt like a kid. a girlfriend called just after the first plane hit the WTC. I thought how sweet, calling me early in the morning (West Coast time)to wish me a happy birthday. then she told me to turn on my tv.

I didn’t celebrate my birthday on September 11 again. Just save that day to reflect. How sad and how fortunate we are to live in this country where this isn’t an everyday occurence like countries in other parts of the world. But foremost to never forget what happened and always fill our hearts with compassion and love for the survivors and the families who lost someone that day.

@ Karen, I can understand your reasoning for using that day to reflect on what happened that day. But I would like to say Happy Birthday to you anyway! Your birth on that day was a gift from GOD to the world. Don’t deprive yourself of that joy! Reflect on what happened that day, at that moment, and at that time, united a country on the heels of division and showed the US and the rest of the world that we are ONE! And each year….we reflect back on that day and pray for all the families affected by this tragedy, we get a little bit stronger! Because if we didn’t? We wouldn’t be talking about this right now.

In fact, I was in the Big Brother website chat room when the first plane hit.

Someone in the chat typed “a plane flew into the World Trade Center”. I immediately went to CNN and saw the photo, which looked like a smallish hole at first. Then the CNN site went down due to traffic…and the horror unfolded.

I was on my way to work that morning when I heard the news on the radio. When I got to work, we all shared our shock and dismay. We were glued to the TV for a while, then tried to go about our day, as we heard of more and more things happening throughout the day. My condolences to those who lost people in any way.

I was getting ready for work, at a school on a military base. Hubby worked in a newsroom. He called and told me to turn on the tv. I threw in a vhs tape and hit record. Hubby said he heard someone yell “oh my god, they’ve hit the pentagon”. I went to work and during lunch, all the parent came in, wearing cammo, hugged their kids tights and took them out of school one by one. My own kids were in high school, we just watched the news all night crying. Living next to the military base was chilling – the sky was silent from its usual sound of jets.

My younger daughter and I were watching Big Brother faithfully even then, and thought they should tell the HG’s and send them home.

My neighbor lost their son on Flight 11 that day. A lighthouse lamp has stayed lit on their window every day since. RIP Jeffrey Coombs and all the other souls.

I was working inside of a Coast Guard recruiting office (as civilian support staff) the day the towers were hit. I had just gotten to work and was getting settled when my Chief yelled from her office that a plane had hit the Tower and we all went into her office to watch it on the computer. At that point, we still thought it was an accident because it was just the one plane. Then we saw the second hit and that’s when the office realized exactly what we were looking at. There was a lot of shocked silence for a while…disbelief. The office had to go into lockdown, and for a while after that day they were not allowed to dress in their uniforms prior to getting to the office, and the door remained locked and people could only come in with ID and by appointment only.

I think the hardest part of all of that though was the family run business down the hall from us. They were all from NYC and had family that worked in and around that area. So they were back and forth with us trying to see if we had any news beyond what they had because they were all very concerned for their family. I’ll never forget that day, or where I was, or the just…chaos of emotions that swirl around it. Prior to that day, my only “where were you?” memory was when Challenger blew up, I was in 2nd grade …back when you still watched the launches on TV.

I’m so glad this post was made, so that all of us can take a breath and step back and realize for all the strong emotions Big Brother evokes in people, it really doesn’t mean anything in the scheme of the world.

I was getting ready for school when I saw the images on TV of the towers with smoke coming out of them.
I don’t think the gravity of the situation had hit us yet because we got in the car to go to school (10th grade
for me) and all the radio stations were covering it. When I got to school, people were saying that both towers
had collapsed and we were just stunned. It wasn’t until later that night that I cried. I just couldn’t believe it at first.
