September 11, 2001 Memorial

A federal Patriot Day was first observed on September 11, 2002 to remember the hijacking of civilian aircraft resulting in the death of all those onboard, the destruction and loss of life at the World Trade Center in New York City and the damage and loss of life at the Pentagon near Washington, D.C. Patriot Day is intended to honor all those individuals who lost their lives as a result of these terrorist attacks. Congress enacted House Joint Resolution 71 as Public Law 107-89 on December 18, 2001, establishing Patriot Day.

Former President George W. Bush proclaimed September 11 as "Patriot Day." Click here to read the proclamation.

President Bush & George Washington
With a year to go before it even touched the water (approx. 2007), the Navy's amphibious assault ship, USS New York, had already made history. It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center. It is the fifth in a new class of warship — designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat - ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft. Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, La., to cast the ship's bow section.

USS New York
This photo was taken at the christening of LPD 21 with the name USS New York
at Northrop Grumman's Avondale, Louisiana, shipyard on 1 March 2008.

When it was poured into the molds on Sept. 9, 2003, "those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there.

"It was a spiritual moment for everybody there." Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up."

"It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to be back."

The ship's motto? — "Never Forget."

Read a poem by Ann Sullivan, A Nation United Under God, 2001.

"When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall.

Think of this.  Always."

Mahatma Gandhi  -  (1869-1948)

Let's Roll: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage - Lisa Beamer - The book title refers to her late husband's last recorded remarks just before he and others aboard United flight 93 crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. They attempted to overcome the terrorists who had skyjacked it. ("Are you guys ready? Let's roll!") They knew what had already happened thus far on September 11th, what those aboard the other three flights did not. Huddled to the rear of their plane, several were able to call loved ones and then recited the Lord's Prayer before rushing the forward area.

Larry's Review: This book is about Lisa's abiding religious faith, coping with the loss of her husband, redefining the heroism of Todd M. Beamer and an inspirational account of her own experiences. Highly recommended.
