Always Remember

It’s 9/11. Where were you when the towers collapsed? I had just finished my morning classes in Texas and was in my office, listening to streaming audio. I remember heading home early, watching TV with my then-fiance (now wife), and then heading over to Subway later, where we had a nice long chat with the guys making our sandwhiches. Down the street, someone was selling gas for $7.00 a gallon, and other people were forming long lines, gassing up while they could.

There were no planes flying.

The nation stood still while we were attacked. A sleeping giant was awakened. And there are still those who wish us to go back to sleep.

Always remember 9/11.

    I was working in the environmental lab where I still work on September 11, 2001. I will never forget this day any more than I will forget the local Oklahoma City terror attack on April 19, 1995. One area convenience store owner decided ro raise his gasoline price to %5.00 per gallon after the 911 attack. He was forced to refund the money he extorted by his national brand headquarters, and is still boycotted by many people today, myself included.

    I will never forget 911. God Bless America
