Regardless of ideology or politics, I think we can all join together today to remember the victims, honor the heroes and reflect on the horrific events that we all survived eleven years ago today.

Never forget.

(NT) A terrible day..I'll never forget it.

For the last three days and today

I have dvr'd every cable channel that have had back to back specials and have been watching all of those shows. There are a few that are repeats from last year, but many that I never saw, including the 'truther' conspiracy ones that make you shake your head over. I didn't realize that they actually have three or four main conspiracies going so if one doesn't 'work', they think the others might...kinda like throwing the spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks...and none of it does. Most of their thinking seems to revolve around the super rich trying to take over properties/real estate...totally whacked when you think about the real estate that got destroyed in order to replace it with WHAT??? Two new buildings (only one will be there now anyhow)? Unless they believe that with the WTC gone all the real estate that surrounded it would be up for grabs....which didn't happen because NYC property owners rebuilt and stayed put. NYC residents are some of the toughest people in the world....you can't just 'scare' them away. If I remember correctly, NYC people were the first to start the "Hey Iran" Mickey Mouse logos with the middle finger in the air during the Iran hostage taking during Carter's term.

It will be a sad day today, but a way to pay tribute to the many heroes of that day...the ones who survived and the ones who fell and the ones who refused to be frightened into leaving that great city.

Only income properties

make sense to hold. Otherwise they are just money pits draining away wealth to cover property taxes and meet zoning requirements, especially in areas requiring regular mowing of lots. If it's not for living on, making a living from such as a farm or timber, or mining, or rental income or some other money producing venture, then investing in real estate, especially in a market that's not showing recovery yet, would be foolish. When property values are rising faster than tax rates, then and only then is it an investment without also producing some form of income.

What is sometimes called "senseless violence", in a way.

Several Muslims killed in the Towers.
Just like blowing up "holy Quran" whenever a mosque is destroyed by one sect or another.

Jeremiah 10:23- "I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." And especially not when venturing out to kill.
