    • @Luopio27 took me 2 hrs to write this, then spell check it. I wanted it to look good.

      Im not suprised. You wrote it well. You decorated it well with the pictures. You kept it neat.

      In all wars there are losses in all sides. I couldnt find anything more to say.

      I dont think your post needs conversation. I think ots one of those classic post where all can just take their moment of silence for all mankind, after reading your post, and then leave the condolences in the comments.

    When they reached the bottom of the tower (s) rubble and you thought you were too numb to feel anymore…. Then they found the guards yellow lab he had put in it’s crate to go do his job, thinking it would be safe in the basement. People hardly mention that dog. They brought it out on a stretcher with the flag draped over its body also. Such a beautiful tribute. I will always remember that, too. 😭

    I wish we'd also learn about how the psychopathic actions the US has taken in the middle east since this date and learn about the effects it had on our culture because the effects of 9/11 go deeper than just people grieving and military heroes serving justice.

    Unfortunately, most Americans' understanding of 9/11 isn't much more than "the dreadful day those bastards attacked"

    20 years of blood sweat and tears all lost by our Dictator and chief Biden. Again all that was won and the pure hatred of Trump caused Dictator Biden using his drug soaked brain moved the date forward with no plan. Dictator Biden even floated a plan to charged $2000 to each service person for their transportation home to be paid by the service person but that never made it to CNN , MSNBC and the rest of the lefty papers. Because of his haste and no plan , hundreds if not tens of thousands of United States citizens and helpers and translators were left behind without any hope of rescue by no plan lying Biden All this because of the pure hatred of Trump and his plan this shit head moved the date forward with no plan in place just to beat Trump at any cost in money and lives thinking of the glory he would get in beating Trump getting troops home and war ended , another of Dictator Biden never ending screwups. IMPEACH BIDEN and usless HARRIS.

      "9/11 Truth" is so 2000s... Don't you have some conspiracy more recent to worry about like Q-Anon or Stop The Steal?

    • Djaay

      Do your research. Find out why Americas contract with Britain was up on 9\11 . We may remain independent from Britain as long as we cannot afford to pay. World Trade Center. uhmmm?

    • abc3643

      I did all the research that I needed.
      I studied engineering and physics.
      They adequately explained exactly what happened.
