Timeline of Terror

I watched this on Fox News last night: "Don’t miss Fox News Reporting’s 9/11: Timeline of Terror, Saturday at 3p ET, and Sunday at 9p and 12a ET." No matter how many times you have seen the footage, you still feel as traumatized, helpless, and angry as you did 11 years ago.  You see and hear about all the names and all the stories you've become familiar with over the years, heroes such as Todd Beamer, Tom Burnett, Barbara Olson, Stanley Praimnath & Brian Clark, Fire Chief Richie Picciotto, stewardess Betty Ong, Mayor Guiliani, the hijacked pilots, and all the firemen and policemen who sacrificed their lives to save others.
And when President Bush used the bullhorn to say, "I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you!", and the crowd chanted "USA! USA!", I felt extremely proud to be an American.
