9 11 Hero READ DESCRIPTION

See this man right here? His name is Rick Rescorla, He was in charge of 22 floors in the south tower of the WTC. He would never stop thinking about the weaknesses and the vulnerability of the building. After the company merger in 1997, Rick would do emergency drills twice a year and although people said there was no need for them, Rick would not listen. One day when they saw the north tower hit, he imediatley started the emergency drill and sent down 2 people at a time in an orderly fashion. That day he saved 2500 people and 13 lost their lives, including him. Now I'm not here trying to be a thumb whore at all, but it would be amazing if this got more recognized and got to the front page so more guys could know about this man, There ARE heroes out there. R.i.p to Rick Rescorla and all those who lost their lives on 9/11.

I'm pretty certain I will get thumbed down for this comment but to be honest, I don't really care about the events of 9/11. I mean yeah, it was really horrible to watch but people get so butthurt when people make jokes about it. But lets be real, people in are dying due to poverty, wars, diseases and murders all over the world every day and no one gives them a second thought when they're taking the piss or making a joke. The only reason people seem to think it's acceptable to make an obnoxious argument is because it affected them in some way. I mean, things like cancer have affected my family - you don't see me balling over the floor whenever someone has a joke about it. On the other hand! This guy is a true hero despite what I've said. He risked his life and saved however many people and it all came down to the fact that he knew what he was doing because over the years he took his job seriously - and it paid off. /rant.
TL;DR - Don't care. If you want to know what it says, read it.

this is what the american shouldve done instead of wasting trillions on war. apparently precision building ballistic tech is way more kick ass.

Before any of you sick, twisted cunts post any jokes leading up to the anniversary of 9/11. Just remember some of us lost family on that fateful day. The only comfort I can take from my brother losing his life, is that he was doing the thing he loved most doing... Flying a plane. Rest In Peace Muhammad.
