It’s That Day, Again

First, please pray for the innocent victims and injured, if that’s what you do…

So many people were affected by 9/11.

Not all were the first targets and responders.

Here is one story:

Debralee Scott

Ms. Scott is probably familiar to many of you, especially if you lived in the 70’s.  She was ubiquitous – on TV shows such as Mary Hartman Mary Hartman, Welcome Back Kotter, Ryan’s Hope, and movies like American Grafitti and Earthquake.  I remember her guesting on The Mike Douglas Show, wherein she shared she was the (uncredited) dead nude body of murder victim Anne Mary Deacon – as she was lifted from her shallow grave, in Dirty Harry!

Being (mostly) single, and in my 20’s during the 70’s, I always found her attractive.  So this part of her story saddens me.

Ironically, she died in Florida shortly after moving there from New York City to help an ailing sister. One day she collapsed and was in a coma for several days but awoke in the hospital and seemed to be fine for a spell. She was released two days later on her birthday. No explanation was given for the coma, but she seemed fine and in good spirits. Three days later she went to take a nap and never woke up. Cause of death uncertain despite an autopsy. She was cremated.

(…)

Her fiancé had been killed in the 9/11 attacks.

The mother of her fiancé said Scott developed a drinking disorder shortly after the the 9/11 atrocities. She says, “Debralee has cirrhosis of the liver from her drinking.” The actress’ sister Jerri Scott adds, “She never did get over Dennis’ death.”. (IMDB)

Slow suicide?

We got the bastard, and many of his crew for the terrorist attacks.  But, are still fighting wars police actions overseas contingency operations against the forces who are determined to topple Western Civilization and establish a caliphate, with all the fundamentalist Muslim trappings.  Including Sharia Law.

How does one fight a war against a radical philosophy hiding within a religion, with no geographic boundaries?

We owe it to The Republic, the 2996 people killed directly, those killed indirectly, the injured, and their loved ones to find a way to stop this poison once-and-for-all!

Not to do so dishonors their memories.

REMEMBER!

  1. Memory of 9/11 is not fading, although my husband and I were discussing yesterday that our just born grandson will probably view the horror as we thought of Pearl Harbor: history. The conversation started as we drove by Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield, where close to 3000 flags, one for each life lost, were planted by volunteers who carried them a couple of miles from a nearby church. The sight is breathtaking, and brings tears to my eyes just thinking of it. So many lives destroyed from senseless acts of hatred.

    • I’m sorry for your pain. I think it’s generational, as you suggest. People born on that day will be starting college soon. I was born during the Korean War. It and WWII aren’t memories for me, they are just history. Well, not just.
      The company where I was working had offices in the Twin Towers. But I didn’t know those folks.
      It’s real for me as the Kennedy assassination is.
