September 11

I still remember where I was when I heard the awful news that America was under attack. I was at work when I heard the news that it had happened. I immediately left work because I thought that there was an unknown chance that it may happen in Portland. Yeah, I was wrong about that, but I don't regret my actions. I spent the rest of the day watching the spectacle unfold on the television...

An understandable reaction. Nobody had any idea what was going on. For all we knew there could have been twenty or thirty hijacked planes heading for various cities. The government certainly thought it was possible, since they immediately shut down air travel.

That was not just an attack on the USA. More UK citizens died on 9/11 than in any single act of terrorism before or since.

I don't think we should ever forget the 9-11 was the result of religious indoctrination.

Well, I don't know who said this, but it's true:

"Religion flies you into buildings; science flies you to the moon."

I remember. I was just talking about this with my daughter.

NickM: I've heard that -- more than three hundred.

Lady M: Exactly. Without the jihadist mind-set it would never have happened. Bin Laden himself repeatedly made that clear.

Shaw: The perversity of it is that some extreme Islamists believe that going to the Moon was sinful, but the 9/11 attack was virtuous.

MAry K: I don't think anyone who was alive when it happened will ever forget. Truly a shock.
