September 11, 2011

ts been 10 years since I saw the Twin Towers fall, 9/11/01. I lost a few friends that day;

Mike McCabe – Jim Martello – Keith Heffey- Bill Bauer-Glen Wall- Mike Tucker-Greg Malone;

And a number of others from the Boat and Monmouth county commuting I did not know well, but remember their faces. What a tragedy, what a waste… and Why?

I remember our Ferry arriving at the Wall Street stop..the first to arrive after the planes hit, and there was a sea of people waiting to get off the Island (Manhattan is an island). Paper was flying through the air amongst smoke, debris, dust and a silent panic and loud fear emanating from the electricity in the air from what has just occurred that morning.

I remember holding my friend Bob Penny in my arms as he cried from the images repeating in his head of watching people jump from the towers, and others borrowing my cell phone to try to call a loved one.

And I remember passing under the Verrazano bridge on our way back home and seeing Tower one collapse like a reverse Mushroom cloud I had only seen in movies to understand.

And if I forget, I can read the Log from the Ferry of those of us who were on that first boat back from Hell, or what was once the most vibrant city we loved to visit and now a burial ground we would on day rebuild.

  1. The tragedy of September 11 few years ago was really scary and few lives are being wasted because of just no exact reason. 10 days from now will be it’s date on this year and I hope goodness to the family of the victims.

  2. The tragedy that happened last September 11, 2011 was still so fresh in the minds of many people around the world and I know the tragedy created a great impact to the people of United States including the barriers between religions.

  3. This is a sad article and I want to agree with both of the two comments above. This is a sad tragedy and this tragedy won’t be forgotten because this is really a big sad tragedy happened in the greatest and powerful nation in the world. Though this won’t be forgotten I hope that the war between religion will be forgotten so that peace will prevail in there will be no descrimination.

  4. This is true “And I remember passing under the Verrazano bridge on our way back home and seeing Tower one collapse like a reverse Mushroom cloud I had only seen in movies to understand.”, I may not have seen it from the actual view but I have seen it on tv, on the news and on youtube and it was really a heart breaking. It’s just like in movies and it’s a really very sad happening.

  5. This is what comes to my mind also after seeing the video that I searched on the internet about the incident “Tower one collapse like a reverse Mushroom cloud I had only seen in movies to understand.”, it was rally a sad incident and everyone who has seen it through internet or through seeing it in real will always be saying that it was really really really harsh and really worst incident.

  6. It’s been a many years ago since the incident and I still remember also the loneliness of the people and the sadness that you can see around the world. I feel sad of the incident and I really hope that it won’t happen again to any of the country in the world. If only world peace does exist then there could be no more sadness in our world.

  7. Who could forget that accident, may people lost there love ones because of the terrorist attack. If only there’s peace to humanity then maybe we could prevent that accident. 2013, another year from that accident, we can forget the date but the accident that happen there is unforgettable. Lets promote peace so that it wont happen again, to our generation.

  8. I know this is a sad tragedy on history and many lives have wasted because of a reason that I don’t understand. It’s been long years already and I hope it won’t happen again. I really hope for world peace and I really mean it because I think as the world is decreasing its effiency the chaosness also of the people increases.
