For what?... I don't see a Pearl Harbor Memorial Exhibition Tour and Walk every anniversary.
I truly sympathize for all the victims, and families... but, what's the point?... especially when the families keep saying anything that is brought up about the tragedy only bring back memories
Since: Aug 07
Somewhere over the Rainbow
While there may not be a "walk" for Pearl Harbor, there is a National Monument, in Oahu. You are welcome to go there,and take part in the 75 minute tour.
As for your statement about talking about it brings back memories. Well, isn't that true for anything that one experiences? I think it's important that we never forget what happened on that dreadful day. As many wars will never be forgotten, this day shouldn't be forgotten either. Alot of innocent people lost their lives to a mad man's plan.
Please don't add to the misery and hard emotions of this particular tragedy in U.S. history.
I am simply shocked that anything of importance is coming to Columbia. Its about time we get to be a part of history in a good way.
You know what?, because this is Sunday... I will not express my true feelings as to how I really feel about your one-side, uneducated comment.
But, I will say this...
1. I have probably visited "The Pearl" more times than you have probably thought about visiting... I was stationed there. Need I say more?;
2. If you're going to comment on my post... be human enough to comment on it's entirety, ok To To. You picked out what you thought was a negative and posted your uneducated comment;
3. If you would have read my comment in it's entirety and could understand... it was not and never wil be ME reflecting back on the past... what is done is done. I specifically said "the families"... not me;
4. Will you please explain to me what in my comment is adding to emotions, and hardship?
Again, this is a beautiful day, and consider the above post being polite. Why I say this.... because I get tired of ignorant people attacking my comments and are clueless as to what they are saying.
I speak (type in this case) simple English... what is so hard about being able to comprehend, but you knew exactly what you were doing... this is why you only pasted what "you thought" was a negative... only to make a retarded comment.
In the meanwhile... I have to go back to my "YANKEES".... "GO YANKEES/GIANTS"
The National September 11 Memorial and Museum is kicking off a grass-roots exhibition to raise awareness and funds for the remembrance museum that is to be built at the World Trade Center site.
The tour is starting in Columbia; the exhibition will be at Finlay Park, Monday and Tuesday before going on tour across the nation.
It includes interactive videos, a short film screening, photographs, artifacts and information about the new memorial in New York City.
The community will learn the story of 9/11 from the perspective of families, responders, survivors, volunteers and the everyday people who came together that tragic day.
The memorial and exhibit will also honor those lost on Feb. 26, 1993, when a car bomb was detonated in the parking garage below the World Trade Center.
Individuals have an opportunity to become part of history. People in each community the exhibition visits will be able to sign a steel beam that will be used in the construction of the National September 11 Memorial. The beam was built by Owen Steel, a local company.
The exhibition will be at Finlay Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
There will also be a freedom walk Tuesday. Walkers will leave the State House on Gervais Street and walk to the exhibition at Finlay Park. Walkers should plan to arrive at the State House between 10:15 and 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.
