Greetings On-Line Family:  This week you will notice I have diverted from my regular format to memorialize, pay tribute and nationally mourn the thousands who died, as well as the thousands who were severely injured and is still suffering from the September 11, 2001 attacks on America.  One of the saddest incidents in American History!!!

Thursday, September 11th marks the 7th Anniversary of the devastating terrorist attacks in the United States of America at the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and in Pennsylvania (a rural area near Shanksville in Somerset County.) 

To be quite honest I believe these attacks were the worst in the nation’s history.  On that painful day many lives were lost (approximately 3,000), but by the grace of God many survived.  Many of these survivors were badly injured and/or burned severely (40% of the survivors were burned). 

After 7 years, you wonder how are things going for the victim’s families, and the survivors?  Obviously, the survivors (even though they have suffered and may still be suffering physically and mentally) are thankful to be alive.  However, there is no doubt the thought of that horrendous September morning (the 11th) will forever be lodged in their minds, as well as the victim’s families minds, and even yours and mine. 

  How could anyone ever forget the sight of the hijacked planes as the hijackers plunged them into the World Trade center buildings…the 1st in the North Tower and some minutes later the 2nd in the South Tower?  Moreover, the sight of the 3rd hijacked plane as it was driven into the Pentagon, and the 4th that crashed in a field in PA.  These attacks were horrifying for all of us, and the devastation in New York at the World Trade Center site "Ground Zero" made all of us sick and terrified.  One of the most heart-wrenching things I observed which will forever stay in my mind, was seeing the bird like figures falling from the windows of the World Trade Center and knowing in my heart that they were people – human beings.  I was in disbelief as I watched those towers in flames tumbled down, while praying and hoping that many were able to make it to safety before they collapsed.   That was very difficult to deal with, as well as the panicked and distressed faces I saw full of sorrow and eyes full of tears as they ran to safety.  The aftermath was just as humbling and completely overwhelming - the fire fighters, police, military officials, families, and just about everyone diligently and tirelessly searching for survivors.  Those images will forever stay in my mind.

As for compensation monetarily, I understand the Federal Government has distributed about $7 billion through The 9/11 Compensation fund - $6 billion went to the families of those killed at the World Trade center, the Pentagon and PA; and $1 billion has been distributed to the injured.  Keep in mind there were several other funds, but these figures I listed are what the Federal Government distributed - which was an Act created and passed by Congress, and which was signed and made into a law by President Bush a few days after the attacks.  Basically to persuade victims and  their families to abstain from filling lawsuits against the airlines, the World Trade Center’s owners and other potential defendants.

I also understand a planned Museum building for the World Trade Center’s sites is being worked on and will open in 2011.  2 surviving tridents 90 feet high from the North Tower will be incorporated in the Atrium of this Museum building.  The presence of these tridents is to bring strength fortitude, resilience, survival and hope.  A pavilion will be build and will serve as the entrance to the subterranean exhibition galleries of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center, which is set to be opened a year after the building is completed in 2012.  This pavilion will range in height from 57 to 72 feet (about a 6 story office building) and it will contain 47,499 square feet of floor area; 34,834 square feet donated to public programs and Museum functions.  Per the New York Times “...The ground floor will have ticket windows, a large security area in which visitors will undergo airport-style screening and a staircase, escalators and elevators down which they will begin a trip that will lead them nearly 70 feet below street level, ending near an exposed part of the slurry wall.  The 2nd floor will be a 180 seat auditorium, a private room in which relatives of 9/11 victims may gather, an overlook from which visitors can take in a sweeping view of the memorial and a small café.  The 4th Floor will be given over entirely to equipment and ventilation...” 

Thankfully, the survivors and the families of the victims have been taken care of, and there is progress with the rebuilding of “Ground Zero”.  Clearly, some issues surrounding 9/11 attacks have been accomplished.

However, I am still disturbed about the thousands of our service men and women whose lives have been lost due to the so-called surge on Iraq (directly resulting from the 9/11 attacks.)  You may recall the surge was expedited to (1) seize the weapons of mass destruction and (2) capture the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks Osama Ben Ladin.  Neither was accomplished – NO weapons of mass destruction was found, NEITHER was Osama Ben Ladin. 

The only major successful thing that transpired from the surge was Iraq having a surplus of $76-$79 Billion dollars due to the soaring prices of oil, and very little of that has been spent on reconstructing Iraq.  Actually, America has been paying for the reconstruction, which is intolerable and inexcusable that US taxpayers continue to "foot the bill" for projects the Iraqis are fully capable of funding themselves, while their oil revenues grow and pile up in their banks.

Meanwhile everything is falling apart in America: (1) the economy is in the “pits”; (2) a major ongoing energy crisis, (3) the American dollar loosing it’s value; (4) the highest unemployment rate ever; and (5) due to the approximately $11 Billion dollars being diverted to Iraq to finance the war - America’s infrastructure is crumbling, along with many other problems in America that have being bypassed and overlooked.

You know what...I frankly just frustrate myself by elaborating on these problematic issues, so let me get back on track with keeping our thoughts on the victims and survivors of 9/11. 

  So as you remember the victims and the survivors of his tragic day – September 11th, 2001, I ask that you keep the survivors and the many families and friends of all the victims in your thoughts and prayers, they will forever mourn the lost of their loved ones.  We must always keep this tragic incident in our minds and in our hearts, because this was a day most of us in America felt powerless, and the incident itself was unfathomable and left us grief stricken. 

   God Bless America!  God Bless all the men and women who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, and Bless their families and friends as they struggle to move on after enduring such pain, and suffering.  God Bless the survivors who will forever be suffering physically and mentally, their healing will indeed take a lifetime and their memories will be vivid for years to come!!!   

  God Bless our service men and women who were deployed to Iraq to fight the war on terrorism due to 9/11, and make sure they are returned home to their families safe and soon.  God also Bless the families who lost their loved ones in this war on terror.

These incredible Hurricanes that have been the cause of a high number of deaths, major damages, flooding and havoc across the Caribbean and the United States are very worrisome.  Our hearts go out to the residents of South Carolina as Hurricane Hanna passed through and headed up north.  She dropped tons of rain, caused quite a ruckus along her way, and certainly left lots of damages behind.  Additionally, the residents of the many cities along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana are still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Gustov, with still NO power, NO water, and an estimated $327 million loss in crops; which was destroyed be the approximately 20 inches of rain that was dumped on the area.  The crops that was lost are cotton, sweet potatoes, soybeans and sugar cane.  There were $45 million in damages to fisheries as well.  

image001.png (548979 bytes)  Indeed our hope and prayers go out to the many in Haiti who have been hit the hardest and most severely from storm after storm.  The loss of lives are sky rocketing on a daily basis, and many are suffering drastically.  Haiti is still under water, so help is absolutely needed.   May these families suffering obtain help and comfort immediately.  Click on the picture above to read about helping Haiti.

 

  In all my years I have never heard a warning such as the one that was issued by the National Weather Service about Hurricane Ike "coastal communities that the storm tide hits will cause "certain death" for those in single-family one or two-story homes who do not heed evacuation orders."

Ike has grown in size with Tropical storm-force winds which extend 275 miles from the center while hurricane-force winds extend 115 miles from the center.  It has been reported that Ike will make landfall on Texas' Gulf Coast, and is on a path directly to Houston, Texas.  Millions are in danger from winds, rain and high water (about 2 stories high) with Ike,  as well as a number of oil refineries.  Galveston Bay is expected to have major flooding, so residents have been evacuating throughout the day on Thursday 9/11/08.  Actually, folks have been evacuating all across the coastline of Texas due to mandatory evacuation warnings.

It is reported that Ike could reach Texas with winds between 111 and 155 mph. It could make landfall late Friday night-9/12 or early Saturday 9/13 with a storm surge as high as 18 feet.

Check out some news via video on Hurricane Ike as it crosses over the Caribbean and on to Cuba by clicking the below pictures!

Please on-line family with these storms approaching, I beg you to be prepared for each of them.  Please evacuate when instructed, so that you are out of harms way.  You must know how dangerous they can be, so listen to the authorities, "buckle down” and be extremely safe.
