Friday Flash 55.....



"Finally"! Sam thought.
After four years of making the Dean's List at Harvard.
The one year internship at Morgan Stanley.
The dedicated and back-breaking hours that it took him to get that MBA.
Resume's...Interviews.
"Finally, my own secretary, my own office...
The World Trade Center, New York City!
I'll NEVER Forget This Day"!!!!!!!



Let us NEVER forget September 11...The 'Pearl Harbor' of OUR generation!!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55,
Please come tell The G-Man...
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, Then BOOK!!!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick-Ass Week-End!!
Peace...!!!!!

I'll never forget that day, not one moment of it. It's ingrained on the back of my eyelids.

A day of remembrance for sure. Be sure to let those you love know it, especially on this day to come, we never know what a day will bring.

Susan at Stony River said...

Ok, Ok, I'm up, I'm up. LOL

Prayer Girl said...

I know I'll never forget that day and I'm now where near New York City. I've never even been there. Great 55 G-Man.

I'll have one up soon and this week I'll try really really really hard to comment on other 55's this week. Oh, and answer the questions from my last week's 55. :P

Vicki said...

Great tribute!!

Mine's HERE

Alice Audrey said...

I can't believe, for a minute, I did forget.

I'm still on a musical kick here.

Mom of Opiate Addict said...

Very moving 55, really touched me and caught me off guard at the end. Yes, let us never forget.

Mine is up.

Mine is UP
Thank you G-Man

Thom said...

Excellent. We can NEVER forget. Mine is up HERE. Aloha :)

CJ said...

None of us will forget 9/11. It was one of those days when it would have been wonderful if Superman could have flown around the globe and turned back time like he did in the movie.

On a lighter note, my Flash 55 for this week is a new twist on the age-old question Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?.

the walking man said...

I'll forget it when it ends. the business begun on that day is not yet over.

Dr.John said...

Such a sad 55. But 9/11 is too recent for us to forget.

What time do you people get up? It's 5:00 and 34 have commented before me.

Mine is posted

HERE.

And it's a groaner.

Paula said...

Glad to have found your blog. Sometimes I read about your "Friday Flash 55" however my English isnt good enough to particpate. Nevertheless there is NO German who doesnt remember 9/11. Regards across the pond

Hootin' Anni said...

Whoa....this was a very disturbing piece this week. I don't know whether to cry or commend you...it's still such a very vivid, emotional memory for me.

Mine's posted too. As always, scroll down beyond my show n tell for Friday!

Have a great weekend Mr. G ---oh and I love the 'have a kick ass weekend' message you left me last Friday!! Love it.

Mama Zen said...

Shadow said...

Life is a mixture of A-Ha! and Oh no! moments. You captured both well.

No-one can forget that day G-man, but it's right that you remind us. x

S E E Quine said...

Damn terr'ists.

Hey, I started a website called the Corrigendopedia. It's designed so that even you can understand what I'm talking about.

I'd keep updating it, but I'm in a swamp right now.

Patrick said...

I picked the same topic. I was out in AZ back then and we woke up to the news. A sad day.

Marjie said...

I wrote a tribute this year, and last, and will continue to do so. I will never forget, nor will I permit my children to forget.

LisaB said...

Well, this is my first attempt for the Friday 55 although it's not fiction.

Fireblossom said...

Don't hate me, Mr. Knowitall! I actually did write a Friday 55, but didn't post it cos I wasn't happy with it. Sorry!!!!

buffalodick said...

Post something about State losing to the Chips, Ohio State caving in to USC, and our beloved Wolverines beating those peckerheads from Notre Dame!!!
I can now die a happy man... you can have my collectables, as I know they will be in good hands...
