I remember thinking, it just couldn't be - we're being attacked.
And no, no one put it up because the fact is that everyone was too busy at the time to put up a Memorial cross of any sort. Everyone there was a recovery and rescue mission to save lives and time what not to be wasted.
It's true! There simply was no time. Time became something no one wasted. The grueling task of trying to find survivors went inch by inch for days, until yes it turned into a job to identify those lost.
Many have never been accounted for. It became clear that there was simply nothing left of them. Their souls had been taken.
During the attack, millions upon millions of people around the world watched 9/11 unfold.
Like many others around the world, the Muslim World watched. And yes, even Palestinians in the Middle East watched the attacks, the destruction, the lost of American lives, the heroic efforts, and the gallant people who will never be with us again.
The difference became clear. While others around the world watched in disbelief that such an attack had taken place, the Palestinians had a different response.
But later, later it was found out that their reaction as common among Muslims.
They rejoiced! Yes, Muslims celebrated!
After seeing the broadcasts on their televisions, Palestinians in the Middle East celebrated and danced in their streets.All rejoicing, happy at what their brother Muslims had done.
The sick bastards all celebrated the deaths of Americans. Their fondest dreams had come true and their blood lust was being fulfilled.
All danced and celebrated in the name of Allah or Mohammad, or some other evil they believe in.
We found out later that Saudi Arabia was behind the funding of those Muslim Terrorists. And yes, in the Muslim World -- they were seen as Heroes for what they did.
They make Emperors and Dictators look small in comparison, as yes they rule with iron fists incampable of passion or justice.
Prophet of the Devil yes, but surely not God.
The world has billions of followers of Islam, yet they don't know the simples thing about God. They are ignorant to the fact that God loves all mankind, he does not rejoice at the slaughter of man.
Muslims use the words of their phony "Prophet," and take them as if they came from God. Zealots and fools all!
In the 16th Century, Christians went through a Reformation because there were those who objected to the Catholic Church's doctrines, rituals and ecclesiastical structure.
Why? Well, it's because they believe their violence is OK because they believe "Allah is forgiving and merciful."
They believe in killing those who they consider "non-believers."
They call them "Infidels" which means "ones without faith" - their faith.
Imagine that! Now there's someone to follow, in a pig's ear! As I see it, you have to hate live a lot to want to emulate Mohammad's thirst for blood.
Yes, that is what I've learned about Islam since 9/11.
But that's not all that I've learned since that horrible day, there's more.
I also learned a great deal about American Patriotism and Solidarity versus Anti-American Extremeist.
Murtha called U.S. Marines "Murderers," and fellow Democrat Dick Durbin compared our troops to Nazis - and he did so right there on the floor in Congress!
The exact same way as I see the Christian, Jewish, or even the Buddhist faiths.
Like most of you, I have watched Muslims commit all sorts of crimes against mankind:
