    that day in the Pentagon.  Sometimes when talking about 9-11, some forget about the Pentagon and the residents of Northern VA.

    I have a friend who was a first responder in Western PA and was called to the site of the Flight 93 crash and he said he will never forget it , it was horrific and the sights and smells he wants to forget.

      This is the first year that survivors and their families have been invited to the ceremony at the Pentagon.  I find that strange.  A friend of mine crawled out from the wreckage of his office, leading surviving co-workers to safety - I think 70% of the people in his office were killed - and their courage and sacrifice doesn't get remembered?  That puzzles me.  At least this year, they get their recognition.

      You hear about crazy, but it's rarer than you think. -Jon Stewart 1/10/2011
