Today is 9/11......

Firstly paying respects to the dead......RIP

But....Have they ever really got to the bottom of what went on?

From Al Qaeda to the Israelis......with other theories inbetween....

Anyway.....Is it more likely....or less likely.....that something will happen today?....

Surprise is usually the thing.....No surprise today though.....

Usually....places increase security for today.....

It's quite surprising how little coverage it gets now, I know it's been 19 years but few people even mention what happened.
Social media, that barometer of public opinion, has next to nothing about 911 so far today - maybe once the USA wakes up it will change...

You're right hiero, it does get little mention, don't know why.
There was a programme on tv the other night about 'The Falling Man' that was interesting, and raised other questions.

And has been said, R.I.P.

Maybe because it was 19 years ago maybe there will be a bigger commemoration next year on the 20th anniversary? Maybe America has other more pressing problems like Covid?
