I remember turning on the T.V. and seeing the replay of the first plane crashing into one of the Towers. A friend was shaving and looking in the mirror while his T.V. set in back of him reflected an American Jetlilner crashing into the towers, he was so amazed at this scene that he left the shaving cream on his face and came back to watch the reports of the attacks in New York. As the attacks progressed to the other tower, and then the Pentagon, and United Flight 93 that crashed in Shankesville, many people were contacting their loved ones who had flights to make sure they were not on the designated hijacked airliners. This is a morbid, sick feeling to wonder, if your relatives are on fatal aircraft, From the cowardly and hateful attacks came heroes like we have never seen before who gave their lives to go save lives.

Remember, Islam hates free societies, they stand for Jihad and want to wipe out other religions and peoples who don't represent their views, they represent evil just as Hitler did, when he gassed 6,000,000 Jews in Auschwitz. There is no honor in killing innocent people deliberately and without provocation, just to commit Jihad. We remember two of the Battalion Chiefs with praise and honor, who climbed hundreds of stairs with heavy gear attached to their backs, both were runners and were in excellent shape, they disappeared in the fire and smoke to save lives, never to return when the towers fell....

These are Americas heroes who went above and beyond the call of duty, let them be remembered with praise and love, and to the families give peace and closure. Terrorists have no hope, no happiness, and lack the ability to live in a free society. They cannot share the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit which represents Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control, theirs is a religion of hatred and anti-semetism which destroys everything that is good about mankind.
