...Since the terrible attacks on the Twin Towers. I haven't noticed any threads on this so I thought I would create one where we can, well I suppose show a bit of respect for all of the people who were killed in 2001. And if you haven't already done so, to just have a mintute's peace:(

I was watching the memorial service earlier this afternoon. It still has the power to hit me; to the point where I had to turn it off I was getting that choked up. I remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, even what I was wearing. There are some memories that time never fades.

I watched a programme the other night called "The Falling Man" and it was horrifying to see all of the people jumping to their deaths, the were so high up. I didn't really understand the serious side of the situation as I was about 7 or 8, I remember saying to a man who was fixing something in my house at the time "It's only buildings falling down" and he replied "Yes but normally they don't have thousands of people inside them!" I think it was terrible now that I realise how bad it was:(

Has it really been that long?

I can clearly remember switching the channels & suddenly stopping. Seeing the towers in flames. Just before the second crash. :(

I pity the Americans who died, and their families who were left to carry on without them.

Yup. Awful. :(
It seems more shocking nowadays for me, as I was just a kid at the time, so I didn't fully understand what it meant.

I remember hearing about it. I was watching Blue Peter and then dad came in through the door saying theres been a terroist attack in New York and I was asking what a terroist Attack was because I didn't know at that time...

What a sad day, where were you guys during that day?

I was at home, just returned to the US after helping to set up and organize the security for the then upcoming elections in Kosovo. I was reading the paper at my mothers house when she rushed in to the front room and told me to put on the tv. I never saw anything so brutal, and I have seen lots of brutality.

One week after that, I was allowed to return to my former job in order to hopefully exact some revenge in the soon-to-come retaliation. Unfortunately our unit was not in on the first waves, but soon after they needed our particular expertise and we took down many of these sick *******s in the mountains of Afghanistan.

And yet, the head lunatic is still at large. :mad:

I was in hospital coming round from my operation when I heard that, at first I thought I was dreaming 'cos of the anaethetic and painkillers.

I'll always remember it 'cos I was told I might have cancer that day then I saw that on TV aswell, that day was full of sadness for me.

I remember I was in the third grade when it happened.
Thoughout the whole school day, I was unaware of it.
Then once my mom picked me up from school,she told me of it and turned on the tv to show me.

The media and the politicians want you to feel that way.

truely sad, makes you wonder what the terrorists on the plane were thinking, not the thoughts of the head of terrorists groups but their own personal thought, did they have any regret of what they were about to do or were they so consumed with evilness they did it and though it was right? Makes you think, but that is what is great about America would took that attack but we are growing from it so we are prepared for future attacks that hopefully never happen, I can only hope the world one day puts aside our differences and works together as one.

Exactly how I feel...:( When I first heard what happened, my heart almost jumped out of my throat. My parents and quite a few other members of my family work in Manhattan, so I was really nervous when I heard about it. I was literally sweating bullets and panicking the whole day. The teachers didn't want us to find out, so they didn't tell us what was going on, but we found out anyway. People were being sent out of class, teachers were in the hallways talking to other teachers, some were crying and having tantrums...gosh, that day was so chaotic...I couldn't wait to get out of that school, so I could call somebody to find out wth was going on. I was so relieved that my mother was alright. Her job wasn't close to the WTC, but I was still scared. Two of my aunts however, were pretty close, which is why I feared for them more. They had to literally run from the debris as the towers were collapsing. You can't imagine how relieved I was to find out they along with the rest of my family were alright.

RIP, all the victims.

It was a very unfortunate event. It was tragic that so many people died. :( God bless America.

Is it wrong that I feel nothing towards this event? While I acknowledge that there are those who died in the event, I don't feel sad for them. I believe that it is just because I am in acceptance of death, and I have my beliefs set in the eternal bliss, but I still can't help feel like I have the emotional range of a rock.. :( When I visited Ground Zero, I just looked at it as just another place... It didn't seem different to me, but like everything else.. For me, there is nothing to look back on, the past is always clearing, and the future is paving.

While I acknowledge that there are those who died in the event, I don't feel sad for them.I guess you could say that about someone dying of old age or something, but so many innocent people had their life taken from them at the hands of other people.

Most of the victims were fairly young too.
