My guess is that the folks who flew those planes thought they were dying for Allah.

My sister and her daughter visited it and they said they could feel the energy and sadness coming from it.

9-11 was such a sad waste of life and property and should never be forgotten!

question for Headache...I see that the title of this thread is pretty similar to one that was posted earlier in the day you posted this thread.

Are you trying to draw comparisons? Are you saying that the deaths are equally senseless?

If that is the case...I could not agree more!

As a NYC'er, who's spent alot of time in that whole area {work & leisure}, and grew to love the towers when I worked there 80/81-- i thank you so much for those of you remebering and coming to visit to commemorate.

I wasn't on this site then, did any of you lose peopl?.

Between family & friends' circles we were blessed we had 3 near-missed.
But we also have 2 peole who went down then for rescue/recovery duties-- i wonder down the line if psycholical problems will emerge. As also maybe it might affect the near-misser's at some point? Hope not.

September 11, 2001, was without a doubt one of the worst days of my life. I'll never forget.

That's a very powerful graphic, Headache.

Never forget. Never. Never. Never.

We will forget, atrocities fade into the history books over the course of decades - it will be just one event in the 21st Century that will be surpassed by others. A lot of people already have forgotten what 9.11 really is. It was made into a media event, censored and repeated to confound the senses and upset the mind. The planes colliding are not the bit that sticks im my mind as much as the people leaping to their deaths, very surreal image. Anyway because the event was shaped by the mass media into a somewhat sanitized disaster the fact it was a bloody atrocity done by evil religious thugs escapes many.

All those people died because in the eyes of their murderers they were an insult to God. There is no emoticon that can capture my feelings on this or the event, just words - hollow, anger, revulsion, sickness, admiration and hope.

The last two are directed to all those that gave so much, even their lives, to save people, that spirit tells me that we shall overcome the threat and the world can be made right, if we have people like that on our side.

I think Hell will freeze over before we'll forget 9/11 in this country.

before you say that, this december 7th, ask everyone you know if they know what happened on that day and see if they remember...
