September 11 Memories

It's difficult to fathom that 19 years ago nearly 3000 human beings were enjoying their last day of life in NYC. 9/11 Memories.

The horrible September 11 attacks were four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the

#WeThePeople of The United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. I still can not accept our government's

warm and cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia, considering this was the most devastating attack on America. How could this

happen? These attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences, in

addition to at least $10 billion in infrastructure and property damage, not to mention the destruction of our collective psyche.

This video of the burning World Trade Center towers on 9/11. It was shot from a police helicopter and was released after a

Freedom Of Information Act request by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which investigated the incident.

I was working for The Associated Press and serving as APTN New York Bureau Chief. It was a day I will never ever forget.

This was the most horrific day of my career and the saddest news event I had ever witnessed, which made me feel extremely

sad and nearly powerless when I traveled to ground zero and saw the massive destruction first hand. There, I ran into a

young journalist who I had first hired years earlier in Los Angeles. I will never forget and will always remember and carry the

Memories of the lost souls forever. Meanwhile, Trump has made remarks about 9/11 and the Saudis which should concern all

Americans. President Trump reportedly boasted about helping bin Salman get away with the whole thing, according to my

Tocayo Bob Woodward’s book. Hold them accountable and #VOTE like our future depends on it.  In the meantime, let’s try

to play down POTUS for our own collective well being.
