It's starting to fade for me. It seems so long ago....so much has happened since then. I thought it would never fade. I remember watching it unfold with such horror. I rarely cry and I didn't cry while it was happening, but three weeks later, I just broke down at my desk at work. I was devastated for over a year. But now.... It is going away. I won't watch the ceremonies today. I don't think I'd feel much watching them. I don't know if that is sad or healthy.

We've had remembrance threads for many other tragedies and people showed enough respect not to derail those threads with a debate about the tragedy being remembered. This thread should be no different.

Please show some respect to those who wish to quietly remember the victims of September 11th and avoid turning this thread into another debate.

Thanks,
*Fizz.
Thank you

i couldn't reach my brother that day until much later in the afternoon. i was so scared. i knew he worked in the city, but i wasn't sure where. he had to walk home, across the bridge to brooklyn. he saw those buildings fall. i finally got an email from him. three words, "i am safe."

too many were not as fortunate.

Such pain.
I live in California, and that morning we where watching Toy story with my 2 year old daughter...so the news was not on. Around noon, my brother in-law came in to visit and after about an hour he asked "So what do you think about NY?"........and I said"what about NYC?"......."You haven't seen the news yet?...OMG...."

When I changed the channel to CNN, they where showing the towers on fire (I did not know that they had collapsed yet)......and then they came down.

I can not describe the feeling that morning.

I have only cried twice from watching something on TV, the attacks in NYC and the Shuttle's first shuttle explosion.

I just held my daughter on my harms....for a long time.

I'm the exact same way...I'll never forget...but I don't feel the same pain that I used to when I think about it. Maybe it's because we're in the midst of a crisis right now and so I'm focused on that, maybe I've become callous, I don't know. However, when I do see the video of those planes I feel the same anger that I've felt over the last 4 years. But not pain.

I can't agree with that... I'm from a country without memory, and it is a shame to forget the innocent people who were victims of the violence.

so, I will dedicate a minute of silence, not only for the victims of the 9/11 attacks, but for the victims of the violence in colombia and all over the world.
