This is a private website, and as such, not a democracy.

You want to exercise your 1st amendment rights? Go preach your conspiracy bullshit on the corner outside.

Wouldn’t have pegged you for one who would want to limit speech.

I do find it funny how in the Epstein thread you posted how 2 shootings were used to take focus off the Epstein suicide, essentially stating they were crisis actors, while simultaneously calling me a conspiracy theorist.

But hey, you do you.

My view is that if Liberty/Kitesurfer wants to do 1 thread like that, I have no problem, dumb as it was. But the blizzard of threads was inappropriate. No limitation of free speech was ever threatened by me.

Lets move on........

May they all rest in peace.
I'm not pulling your chain today. I know you were closer to the front line than myself.

That being said, are you going to let the terrorist continue to terrorize you by not taking care of business? Or is the healing still going on? I will NEVER forget, but I'm working on forgiveness.

NOW, Roberta and I will get corny: "What the world needs now"

That's Dionne, not Roberta

Ironically, I was forced to take care of business that dreadful day 18 years ago also. I'm sorry Uncle, you're better than I am. I can't use the word forgiveness here. And I fear that there are many who are looking to conveniently forget. So many died, not just that day but since due to first responder related cancers.

I find it amazing to this day that I do not know anyone personally who was killed that day. But it seems everyone I know lost someone. We all mourned, regardless of whether the loss was first hand. I had many friends and family that were in the towers but made it out. My first cousin was in the WTC when it was bombed was in 1WTC again on 9/11.

EDIT: Adding my SO worked at the area identifying remains for over a year.

I was SURE it was Roberta, but memory is the second thing to go.

I heard about the first strike from Mark and Brian. I got to the base and watched the second from the galley. I had grape jelly on the sourdough toast, and those iconic white coffee mugs. We went to high alert shortly after. I was a civil servant, so there wasn't much for me to do but stay out of the way, and try to keep my jaw from hitting the floor. THAT memory isn't going anywhere.

If you aren't at forgiveness yet, hopefully you have moved on from revenge (if it was ever an issue). The death that might result from retaliation hurts the others no less than what we felt ourselves. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. Somewhere the cycle of violence has to be broken.

Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

I wish you peace this day.

"Some people did something"..This phrase will live on after 9/11 is forgotten.
