Having stood on the top of the tower this felt very real for me...can’t even imagine the effect on those who were actually there on the day and during the aftermath.

I’ll never forget

I remember exactly where I was when this happened. I actually watched the second plane on live TV. At that time only the first plane had hit and the news was talking about how an unfortunate event this was....then when the second plane hit on the Live coverage the announcer replied...."We are under attack! The US is under attack!"

 

Never Forget it.

I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when this s*** went down I couldn't understand what the hell was even going on because I was in the car driving listen to the radio and I got in the middle of the broadcast and was going what the f*** till I turned on the TV and couldn't believe what I was seeing.

I remember exactly where I was too. I was getting ready to head to my High School and it was on tv. Couldn't believe it was real, except it was on every channel. I didn't see the planes hit but did see them collapse. I believe I missed first period, got to school and some people still didn't know or believe, while others were just devastated.

It's interesting and sad to me though that this is my Pearl Harbor... in that, while I'll never forget, my kids and younger people will actually never truly know or understand.

Maybe much how, while I understand Pearl Harbor was probably the greatest tragedy prior to this, but for me I don't understand how much it probably affected the country, or even the world. But I do with 9/11.

We in Canada watched all this unfold on the TV. I felt so bad for my US friends having to deal with it all.

I was getting ready for work while the TV was on in the background. I didn't think it was real. 

When they closed the airways they had a call for any spare rooms since thousands of people were redirected and stranded in Vancouver.

I called up and let them  know I had a room and free food for anyone until they were allowed to fly again.

 

 

The world changed that day.

Terrorists must be stopped/killed somehow or the world will not be safe.

I was at work spotting trailers when I found out. Was so worried it could happen anywhere and was worried about any of my loved ones!! Sad day indeed.

Hey guys I never saw this post I was one of the first responders To this catastrophe I went looking for friends and neighbors I knew some good people that passed away on the tragic day
I continue to struggle with this ..... but the horrible memories that I have.. and I pray that none of you will ever have to perform a job like I had to for months and years on that site..
It never goes away for me because a lot of my friends and coworkers that helped in the recovery had passed away due to their 911 illnesses
I am constantly being reminded of the events because there’s not a week or sometimes even a day that goes by that I don’t hear about someone else becoming very ill or passing away.
God bless everyone your friend Jimmy

I had just left with my fiancée for our move to Phoenix. I was Local 3 working on building #3 doing fiber optics. Just before the move, they wanted me to stick around for another week but I declined as I had wedding plans and needed to move all our stuff out west. When we got to AZ, my sister in law called frantically as I heard her voice on the machine plugged into a distant room. I got up and found the tv, plugged it in and watched Dan Rather almost in tears saying Oh My God there's another plane as my wife and I watched it going into the second tower. We thought it was some kind of joke. That day was one of the most sad days aside from the passing of my parents that I have ever endured. There were new apprentices that started as I left to take over the trade. I do not know if they made it or not. We NY'ers would have just stayed where we were in the building 'cause those things are tough and this crap would never happen to us. I know of many people who went into the basement or lower levels and just remained there not knowing the buildings were going to collapse. Needless to say, our wedding was in less than a week and we were to fly back, get married and drive back with the second car. The airports were closed until the day before our wedding. Even our special day was a somber one with overcast skies and the people still silent as to what occurred. I don't think it mattered where you lived on this planet, it was a despicable loss of life that affected every God loving soul. I still think about it from time to time. Sometimes wondering why we don't drop a nuke on that side of the world and reclaim our power against these evil people. On a happy note, my wife have been married nearly 18 years and never had we had a fight. We compromise and appreciate/love one another. Having no kids makes it easier too I suppose and this leaves a little more money for my discretionary hobbies. One such that I am a member on this forum :)

I remember this like it was yesterday...having been there so many times it felt very real for me and that’s someone who lives in the UK. I can’t know how it feels for someone who lives there or lost someone to it. I’ll never forget and thoughts go out to all affected

Be nice if they gave the news stations the fighter planes because they respond instantly to shite this military dont seem to be able to anything about.

Also it was nice of them to dispose of all of the debris before anybody could analyze it.

I often wonder how Aviation kerosene can melt a steel girder building but it can't melt the f****** Jet Plane engine not that it matters cuz they never found the f****** planes anyway. It's amazing how you can sift through 37 trillion tons of rubble and amazingly come up with passports for the f****** so-called terrorist but not produce an airplane.

Notice how they love that term jet fuel because it sounds like Rocket Fuel and everybody knows Rocket Fuel gets real f****** hot but the part they don't tell you as it gets about a thousand times hotter than jet fuel

This 911 b******* is the biggest load of f****** crap the human race has ever had to choke down I just feel sorry for the f****** Pawns in this game because they're just you know innocent people doing their thing while some other mother f***** hungry for power and control only does what's best for them.

Very interesting program on last night about how NIST were basically ignoring chemistry and the real reasons why. Seems like they want the idiocy theories to continue in order to distract people from focusing on their incompetence.

 

Anyway, level headed people will always think about all of those affected, thoughts with you.

Not to get political, but its a tough world out there. When we visited Turkey on part of a Greek Island Cruise years ago, we were welcomed. It seems today I would never set foot there due to the danger and hatred towards Americans. We've been butting into the business of middle eastern countries for years and they finally (over the last 50 years) had enough of us. Hence their cowardly methods called terrorism. I know this may offend many, But I still think stay out of their business. If they attack us again, send a nuke over there and be done with it. I feel this country has lost its balls.

Lost our balls?  We invaded Afghanistan and basically created a new government.  Despite the fact that they didn't attack NY, Al-Qaeda did.  Maybe it was justified, maybe not.  But it was certainly more balls than simply bombing a few camps.

 

And then a couple years later we made up total BS reasons to invade Iraq.  I don't call that having "no balls".  I'm tempted to call it having too MUCH balls, except that would be giving the Cheney crew too much credit.  So I would actually call it criminal arrogance and stupidity.

The Afghanistan war is/was a waste of time and money. I say that because as soon as we pull out of there, a new regime of terrorists will spring out like weeds in a well watered piece of dirt. This will never end. My comment on balls was the fact that it should have ended quickly with a Moab dropped. We lost too many people fighting a lost cause.

This still shocks me to this day! I was working up in London on the day in a very busy environment so had no idea until I returned home early evening! Too much for most of us to even comprehend & is burned into our minds those images & video of that terrible day - I still shudder when I see video of those planes slamming into the WTC!! Terrible..............
