NYC Releases More 9/11 Calls

As we approach the 5 year mark of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, NYC releases new calls made from those trapped inside the World Trade Center. Just as those heard on network news and in documentaries, the voices are chilling, especially when one asks, "I'm going to die, aren't I?"

As movies like "Flight 93" and the now playing "World Trade Center" come out, we get asked whether or not this is the right time, or if we're ready for this. Personally, I think we need these reminders. We need to remember that there are people in this world that want to kill us. Allegedly some are even willing to kill their own children in the process.

The sad part is, I think some of our own leaders and their advisors need these reminders too. On the day that he decided to invade Iraq, I wish someone would've reminded President Bush that the target was supposed to be Al-Queda and those states that aided them. Perhaps then Sec. of State Colin Powell did try. But obviously it was to no avail.
