1. Listen to a rebroadcast (from 9/11/01) of the morning show I listen to.

2. Play music. I'm gonna alternate between reflective, sad, and uplifting stuff. Lotsa Bruce, U2, and Lennon.


I'm really not looking forward to it.

Well, it will be a Wednesday...I'll sleep in as late as I can, go to work for 10 to 4, go to class from 5 to 7, come home, go on Interference, and go to bed.

I don't like to think about it, really. Maybe it's insensitive in some ways, but I just don't like to.

My school is having memorial services, so I'll go to those. I'm sure there will be plenty of stuff on TV about it too.

Same. That's why I was askin.'


Sorry about the sensitivity... I just hope their are a lot of community things so people can spend the day with people closest to them. That's all.

I will be working. My company sent out a memo on Thursday informing that since an act of Congress made Sept 11 Patriot Day, we are to wear red, white and blue . My home office will also be issuing us USA Flag Pins or something like that to wear. We are also to observe a moment of silence during the time the 1st and last planes crashed. this is a requirement for all of our offices in the States and in Europe ( i believe they only want our European offices to observe a moment of silence)...it should be a very interesting and somber day.

i didn't know this either, until i read that memo..


i just found this online...

Patriot Day (September 11) is an observance, not a holiday. It remembers the hijacking of four civilian aircraft on that day in 2001, resulting in the death of all on board, the destruction with huge loss of life of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York and damage to the Pentagon outside Washington DC, with further loss of life. It is intended to honor all those individuals who lost their lives as a rusult of these terrorist attacks.

The President is requested to issue each year a proclamation calling on State and local governments and the people of the United States to observe Patriot Day with appropriate programs and activities. Flags are to be flown at half mast and the people of the United States are called upon to observe a moment of silence.

Patriot Day should not be confused with Patriots' Day, which is a holiday in Delaware (3rd Monday in April) and an observance in Wisconsin (19 April) and elsewhere and which refers to the Battle of Lexington (19 April 1775).

There has been much discussion on the web of a new "holiday". We at the Worldwide Holiday and Festival Site feel it is entirely appropriate that this remembrance has been designated as an observance rather than a holiday. It seems to us that it would be seriously unsuitable to remember so great a tragedy at the poolside or barbeque or at home with the TV. A moment of silence seems very appropriate and, though none of us are Americans, we will certainly observe this in our offices. We also hope that it will be remembered that, despite the name now given to the observance, the tragedy was International in character - not only Americans died, but people of many nationalities, and the whole world is affected by this evil.

I am scheduled to work from 5 to 9 pm. I also signed up for a seminar on Coping with Change that is somewhat mandatory; it's being held on two dates but this date is the most convenient for me.

It is a relief that I will be busy with work, because otherwise I'd be sitting in front of the TV set all day crying. As it is, I tear up when I see things on the regular news shows I watch like Tom Brokaw and "Newsnight with Aaron Brown" on CNN.

My community is holding a Candlelight service on the 12th, and I'm going to it.

Next week in general could be difficult from an emotional standpoint...so many heartbreaking memories of what happened, and how each of us personally reacted on that awful day.

No I understand! I'm just the same really!

The town that I live in is having a number of Memorial services. Churches, schools and local organizations are all having things planned. I will probably attend one of these.

I'm in school for most of the day and since I don't live in America I don't expect we'll have a moment's silence or other mark of remebrance. I'm going to watch a documentary that's being shown on tv about the firefighters who were affected by September 11th, but aside from that I don't think I'll do anything in particular to remember it. I'm sorry if it sounds insensitive but I feel awkward and slightly uncomfortable about doing anything to mark September 11th since I didn't know anyone who was personally affected by the attacks and I'm not even American. I feel as though perhaps I should just stand back and let those who were affected by the tragedy do whatever they see as appropriate in remembrance.

I'm going to work on Wednesday. I'm sure that because of my job, there will be a lot of memorials planned, but I don't plan on participating in any of them.
