    Before time passes too much, can you tell all that you remember about the 9/11 incident ?

    History is that which is written down..  By writing down everything that we remember, we will at least have some bearing on what happened.  Some people know much more than others and others just heard it on the news.  There were police, first responders, pilots, news crews, television cameras, fire department people, eye-witnesses, airport staff, ATF, FBI and others that saw, heard and  experienced events.  These need to be written down, before the knowledge is gone.

    I was sitting in 4th grade. ( I know I'm young). We were doing partner reading. All of a sudden it came over the intercom to turn the news on. Our teacher looked like a ghosts. After she explained what had happened a fellow student was in tears. Her aunt worked at the trade center. I came home, we spent that night watching the news. The next day we didn't do anything at school. We talked about the situation. We watched videos deticated to those who died. My fellow student wasn't at school for a week or two.

    The same year that 9/11 took place, I drove from Pittsburgh to Scranton, Pa. When I left Pittsburgh, Pa., there was not any cell phone reception almost all the way from one city to the other.  Another thing about the 9/11 that I remember was the Pittsburgh paper had an article that said the plane went down near an underground bunker called, "Site R".  Bush grounded all planes across the US, but one at Greenville/Spartanburg airport was given clearance.  The Air Force One took President Bush in the sky and Pres. Bush kept saying, "Cheney is ok,  Cheney is Ok.  He is safe in an underground bunker". 
    Some time after the 9/11 event, I met a woman who said that she helped at ground zero.  She said that she and others supplied boots for the first responders and firefighters.  I asked why.  She told me that the ground and rubble was so hot that it was melting the soles off the shoes.  She said that any paper dropped onto the concrete would blaze in fire as soon as it touch the surface.
