Harry Ong doesn’t seek attention & prefers to keep a low profile.

But… (1/5) #Respect #911Anniversary #911Memorial
…I am so grateful he opened his heart to us at the cemetery where Betty is. He told me a part of her leg bone was found 3 blocks f/the World Trade Center.

Betty was the flight attendant on American Airlines flight 11 who made the 1st call about the chaos on board. #911Memorial
For those who haven’t heard the call, you’ll hear her bravery. Her calm. Her composure.

Harry told me later he can tell there is some fear in her voice but she had the determination to keep her passengers & team safe. #911Anniversary

#911Remembered Responding @CBSNews reporting on 9/11 families still waiting for the five al Qaeda suspects to be tried at Guantanamo Bay: Full statement from the Office of Military Commissions - Convening Authority: “The 9/11 trial date is scheduled for January 2021; however,
with the filing extensions ordered by the Military Judge due to the COVID 19 pandemic, a January start date is unlikely. Currently, filing requests have been extended 180 days past the scheduled January trial date, which indicates that member selection would not begin before the
summer of 2021.” + “Amendments to the scheduling order indicate that COVID-19 circumstances have impacted the Commission schedule. Trial scheduling orders may be matters subject to litigation in the commission.  Because matters subject to litigation are committed to the presiding

I was on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, heading to a federal building for a Social Security hearing when I saw the smoke

The radio said it was an accident at first, reporting that maybe a small plane crashed

When the second plane struck, all doubt was removed

A group watched on a portable TV as the fires raged, and people leapt to escape the inferno, making an unthinkable choice-the only decision they had left-about how they would die

The first tower collapsed as we sat in horror

All those human beings, perished in an instant

But that didn’t stop firefighters and law enforcement from doing their jobs

They rushed in to help, knowing the danger
They always did

More than 400 gave their lives that day

Why doesn't the President know all of the words to the Pledge of Allegiance?

Or did he know them at one time and simply can't recount them now?

This is from this morning's 9/11 ceremony in Shanksville.

It's weird, right?

h/t @therecount
And it doesn't look like Melania knows *any* of the words.

Can you imagine Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama standing there mute during the Pledge of Allegiance?

9.11.2001: I was getting ready to go to work, at The Wall Street Journal, right by the #WTC. Saw the second tower collapse as I biked downtown from my apartment in Chelsea. Oh, the horror... #911Remembered Image
Pierre was in France, hiking. He had no idea about anything until much later that night. I had a plane ticket to Paris for Sept. 13. I never made it, of course...
And two years ago, I spoke to @rivapa about the experience. Here’s me in full Cantinflas mode.

A brief history of Trump making 9/11 about himself

#neverforget #AmericaNeedsBiden #911remembered…
A trip down memory lane, if you like: Trump justifies holding a rally in Illinois after an attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh by telling a lie about the World Trade Center, NYSE, and 9/11.

#neverforget #AmericaNeedsBiden #911remembered #911anniversary

I'll never forget this story of Canadian friendship on 9/11.

Gander, population 10k, opened their tiny airport to hundreds of grounded flights and took care of 7k Americans on 9/11.

Como otro año más, intentaro actualizar el HILO de sobre las #fotografia menos vistas del #11S.
En este caso os muestro unas fotos del fotógrafo Rob Wilson, muy cerca de la Zona Cero. La gente estaba espectante mientras veía las Torres arder. #11Septiembre
La #fotografia del hoy con la del ayer. Este conceptualismo no podía faltar en este repaso. Desde el Brooklyn Promenade las vistas de aquel #11S se juntan con las mismas diez años después. La foto es de Jason Powell. #11Septiembre…
Otra toma menos conocida de Steve McCurry (y que tuve que dejar aparcada en los anteriores años) es este desde los edificios frente a Washington Square en la que se ve las torres al fondo. ¿Sabrían de dónde venía el humo todos esos turistas? #11S #11Septiembre

This is sick and wrong and totally on brand. Don’t let Trump tell you he loves first responders.

BREAKING: Trump administration secretly withheld millions from FDNY 9/11 health program…
“Here we have sick World Trade Center-exposed firefighters and EMS workers, at a time when the city is having difficult financial circumstances due to COVID-19, and we're not getting the money we need to be able to treat these heroes."
The Treasury Department mysteriously started withholding parts of payments — nearly four years ago — meant to cover medical services for firefighters and EMTs treated by the FDNY World Trade Center Health Program.
