    Truckers Tribute to 9/11.

    Have you heard about the trucker who has painted his cab and trailer
    with the names of all those who lost their lives on 9/11?



    The trucker's name is John Holmgren from Shafer, Minn.
    He has been 'pulled over' numerous times just so the troopers can get their picture taken with the truck.

    Seems that most everyone has moved on and forgotten 911...'yawn, oh well'...but I don't think it'll stay buried for long.

    Jesus said that in the end days that nothing would be hidden and that knowledge would increase. Personally, I'm looking forward to when the trials for the criminal elite war criminals begin.

    This Patriotic trucker hasn't forgotten!

    I have not forgot, and I never will. Amen to that trucker, that is pretty noble and I appreciate it!

    Im not from New York nor do I have anything in the way of family or friends there but 9/11 really dug in deep with me on many levels. I have been to the memorial and reflection pools and talked to people that did lose someone that day. Thousands of people were murdered today some 16yrs ago. I couldn't forget if I wanted to.

    May the Lord have mercy on their souls and rest in peace....

    No mention of 9/11 on the front page of the local paper today. Nobody showing the towers video. It is hard to watch, but younger folks NEED to see and understand.

    Awesome truck !

    God bless Mr. Holmgren for his impressive effort to keep people from sweeping it from their memory.

    Is that the original truck done up like that, if so he used to sell flags, with all the names of the victims names on them.
    I bought several of them way back when.

    I suspect that 9/11 will be like a lot of things - forgotten by many who are too caught up in "daily life" to remember, but there will ALWAYS be those who will NEVER forget! It is indeed dismaying to see so many people get so inurred, as to "forget" things like 9/11. Is there something within us that hates looking back, so we can learn from the past? There certainly seems to be in many folks today! But again, some of us will NEVER forget, and history will record it for as long as history is recorded. The "explanations" of it may vary, but the event will always be remembered by some. God bless those who still remember, and still want "justice" for what was done that day.

    Now, we have a President who seems to WANT to bring back the traditional American values and attitudes and actions. And look at how even he is stymied in his efforts, even by those within his own party! Will we ever learn???
