The LAFD Asks: Did You Forget?

Friday, August 11, 2006 |

Some must apparently flip pages on a calendar to bring them closer to their promise - while for others, each passing day takes them further away.

Today, we simply ask for four minutes of your time, because no one should wait a month to answer the question...

Did You Forget?

We encourage you to ask this question of your friends and family.

We must never forget about the horrible act on 9/11/06.

The people of the world must pray for the world's enemies.

Thanks for sharing the video clip with us. It was a nice reminder that we are at war with evil and we must prevail.

We have never forgot. With my husband being a firefighter, it is always on our minds. Thank you for the video. Very compelling and it made me cry to see it. We should never forget.

Please forgive my mistake on the date that I typed above. I should have typed 9/11/01, and not 9/11/06.

ashley, When I read your post, the date that I "saw" was 9/11/01. I didn't notice that you posted the wrong year until you pointed it out.

That video montage was really something. I don't think the media has done us any favors over the past five years by deciding not to replay images of those who jumped to their deaths or the moment when each of the planes crashed into the Towers. For some reason I was awake at four o'clock that morning. I will never forget seeing the images live, realizing those poor people made the ultimate choice. Jump to the ground and die now or burn to death slowly.

One thing that I hope isn't happening in L.A. Apparently after the first WTC bombing, the police were put out because of what they saw as the hot shot heroics of the fire dept., taking their rescue helicopters and plucking people off the roof. Sometime in between the first 1993 WTC bombing and 911, the access ways between the upper floors and the roof were locked. 911 operators didn't know this and directed people on the upper floors to make their way to the roof. Let's hope that our great local police and fire folks are all talking to one another.
