Let us never forget 9-11 --  I'm watching the memorial on TV right now and thinking about those I knew who lost their lives from my town that day and for everyone who was a hero.  Let us never forget.

I have also been watching it, I woke in the night and put it on, couldnt watch again for many years, but now I need to see it all ,so much footage I havent seen, I felt overwhelmed just like before. I read the story the other day, I believe its a book, of them finding this moms hand in the field   in Pennsylvania wher those brave Americans tried to take the plane back, they saved DC ,it had her beautiful ring still on her finger, so her daughter was able to have back part of her mom and the ring that probably would have gone to her anyway...I heard that body parts are still in Ground Zero, so when I say it is a sacred site I mean it ...

Same here. It's a beautiful, crystal clear day, just like 9 years ago when our world changed forever.

I wish I had cable. There was very little coverage on the local channels this morning. I was so disappointed. I've been looking up videos.

I hope people don't forget. I think too often people do, especially the really young ones. My daughter was only 9 years old when it happened but she's been looking up videos on it today. The more I look over it all again the more I'm amazed and touched at all the heros that stepped up that day.

I too have been watching on and off today.  I am a Canadian, but will still never forget that day.  Such a tragedy.

God ... I will never forget that. I was supposed to be there that day and it was by the grace of god that we were running late.

My mom, myself and my godmother were supposed to be there that morning for a college convention but we left late and that god missed it.

What happened on 9/11 affected the whole world. Even in the place where my mother lived (a town in north England) there was someone died in one of the Twin Towers....even in my area here, there are some people who died there....
It was one of the most monumental tragedies the world has ever seen. It will never be forgotten.
It certainly won't be forgotten by me.

Swampy, I just saw those photos from the link you posted here. Thank you for posting that.

I will never forget. Tonight my daughter and I watched the movie "Flight 93". I recommend that movie and "The World Trade Center" movie. They both are very sad and intense and they did an excellent job portraying the events and people in these movies. I highly recommend both of them. They may be hard to find now since they're so old. You'd probably have to order them online but they're good movies and worth having and watching.

I cannot watch the shows ... too emotionally connected for me.  But, they are good so we never forget.

Last night was the first time I could watch the last minutes of flight 11 on the History channel.  I was a flight attendant and could identify with it too closely.  I knew the galley, the boarding procedures, announcements et al.  Bringing out the cart and just think it's a normal flight.  I couldn't help but cry.

Watching it all again brought up all the anger I felt that day.  Not against all Muslims but radical jihadist.  That same anger still burns in me.  We should always remember.  And lets not forget there are 2 types of jihad.  One is violent and is the one that attacked the WTC.  The other is not violent but just as lethal.  It is patient and starts with small baby steps to Islamasize non Muslim countries.  Introducing Sharia law is one of the first steps.  And we are seeing that now in the USA.
It may not alarm you but it should.  It's just the first step of many to turn us into a Muslim nation.

Lets not let them win.  Either militarily or peacefully.  Both types must be stopped in their tracks.

Hi everyone ...

If we can keep our thoughts on 9/11 and how we coped ... it'd be best..  Appreciate everyone's input/feelings but this journal is really important to so many of us to reflect upon and don't want it deleted if things escalate with differing opinions that get heated.

I know it is hard to watch, but really, I think we should make copies of these programs for future reference.

Like everyone, I remember where I was when it  happened. It was just so surreal, and scary. I just wanted to get my kids and get home...

I felt so bad watching all those New Yorkers going down the street with all that debris and smoke everywhere, those dazed looks. It was just unbelievable, like watching a bad movie or something.

Peggy,

I cannot explain what it's like when you're talking to a friend who survived that day ... the look on my friend's face all these years later  still reveals expression I've never seen in my life ... I cannot explain it, it's hard to give support (you don't know what to say), so you just listen and be there -- and yes, I agree, keeping archives of these programs is so important or else we can easily go into denial to feel better.
