Where I Was On September 11

    Where I Was On September 11

    Until September 11, 2001, I worked in the World Trade Center, halfway up Tower One. I wasn’t doing political blogging at the time, but was writing “the Baseball Crank” as a weekly baseball column for the online edition of the Providence (R.I.) Journal. Here’s my account of that day, written for ProJo two days later while it was all still fresh. We run this every | Read More »

    Hope Of A Tree

    Hope Of A Tree

      “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.”  Job 14:7-9 Today marks twelve years since the attacks that truly changed our country.  As we have in years past, Americans will slow down to remember September 11, 2001; and to that we have added September 11, 2012, | Read More »

    On September 11, 2001, I boarded a flight from Newark to Dallas. Although on a different airline, I left from the same terminal at around the same time as Flight 93.

    Four hours later, when we were grounded in Memphis told about the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, I knew the Twin Towers had come down via cell phone but did not fully grasp what was told to me until we got off the plane and saw the CNN footage on a television in the terminal.

    Though it’s been 12 years next month, like most Americans, September 11th is a day that I will never forget. In the months that followed September 11th, for the briefest of moments, our nation was united as one people, one party–all American.

    #NeverForget the victims

    Can the President of the United States ever truly recover from a clown wearing a mask that looked like his face?  My friends, he shouldn’t have to deal with things like that. Let us take a moment of silence to remember those who have been victimized. The NAACP is heroically pursuing the man responsible for the most recent attack and has asked the Department of | Read More »

    How soon we have forgotten

    9/11 — We all have our stories. I was caught 2300 miles away, with 5 children. We were to fly out that morning. We had to drive from San Diego to the Midwest — in a mini van. Along our way, we saw American Flags over every overpass. People would wave to us. Folks were handing out American Flag T shirts. We got to see | Read More »

    Remember And Pray

    [image via JohnDavidHead.com] Many crises have befallen this great Nation throughout her history. We have faced each one in turn, and dealt with them accordingly. So, too, did we come together as ONE Nation, under God, in the face of the hell that was unleashed on September 11, 2001. We moved on, but lost sight along the way of where 9/11 took us as a | Read More »
