This is the first year of the official Sept. 11th Museum and Memorial. Located underground, on the foundation stones of the World Trade Center Towers, it contains more than 10,000 artifacts of the day, 23,000 pictures, and an archive of more than 500 hours of video.
It was 13 years ago Thursday when terrorists attacked the United States after gaining control of four commercial airplanes. Two planes struck and took down the World Trade Center in New York; the third damaged the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Passengers of that flight, United 93, fought the terrorists in an attempt to regain control of the plane.
The city of Phoenix 9/11 Memorial Ceremony was a reminder that even though 13 years have passed since the attacks, many still relive the event on this day.

Where do central Arizonans go for a quick, out-of-state escape? Families with younger kids often go west to San Diego, hedonists south to Rocky Point, Mexico, and those who like to be active in mountains and canyons can go north to Moab, Utah, a kind of Disneyland for the outdoorsy set.
There are so many unconstitutional acts used by President Obama that it is hard to chronicle all of his actions. One issue is his use of the Executive Orders that he keeps using. If he sends a bill to Congress and it doesn’t get passed, Obama issues an Executive Order to accomplish his actions. This, of course, is against the Constitution. The Constitution specifies that Congress passes bills, the president executes bills, and the Judiciary reviews them for constitutionality. By eliminating Congress from legislation he has decided to become a dictator of a Totalitarian government, and unfortunately is succeeding in his subterfuge.
