This is not a post to trash other cultures or anything negative towards anyone, it is to post your memory of that day, how it affected your life, and what you were doing the day of the horrible attack on the US WTC!!


With 9-11 tomorrow, I would just like to post in memory of all the brave men and women, as well as the unsuspecting men and women, and all the families that were affected the day of September 11, 2001.


On the morning of Sep. 11 I was 11yrs old waking up getting ready for school. Watching the weather to find out the day ahead, I live on the west coast so at 6am my time the first tower was already hit. My mother was
explaining to me what they were and why this was a devastation to everyone. just 2 min into the conversation live footage showed the second tower being hit. At that time I too was scared wondering if I was in any danger.
My uncle lived just 5 miles from the towers. I was on the phone with him when he stated that 10 min before the first tower hit he was in the lobby of the north tower dropping his buddy off for work, told him that he would
meet him for lunch and drove away. On his way home he saw the tower get hit close to where his friend worked. Needless to say he'll be waiting for that lunch with his buddy forever. This was a horrible time for the US.
To this day, tears come when this date falls, its saddening but all we can do is remember!!


NEVER FORGET 9-11!!

I was in fourth grade.. a bunch of kids were being picked up from school by their parents. A lot of them were crying. My mom came to pick me up, and she was in tears as well. I didn't really understand what was going on, and all she would tell me is that "something terrible has happened."

Here's a really good short film on YouTube showing one person's account (it's a year old I think):

Vladi was one of our good friends he helped us get all our papers in order when we came to Canada of course that was back in 1995. As fate would have it he was on the 106th floor of the North tower on September 11th. My thoughts and prayers go to his and all families that lost someone dear on that day.

I was 15 and a sophomore, getting ready for school and noticing on the news that the WTC was on fire. Thought nothing of it, went to school. After 2nd period, about when the news was announcing it was no mere fire, I watched it all unfold in every class for the rest of the day...

Praise the fallen...

Senior in high school. Everyone in class was talking about it, looking up some pics of it on the net, then over the intercom, we were told to go home early. School didn't resume until Thursday.

I was at work sitting at my desk staring at a computer.

A coworker named Denny came in and said "Someone flew into a building in New York."

"Stupid pilot" I thought. and kept working.

Twenty minutes later, he peeks back in my office and says "You need to come out here and listen to the radio."

So I came out and stood by the radio with Denny (45 year old guy) and listened to the news. When they said a second plane had hit the other tower, I looked at Denny and said "We're being attacked!" and Denny shook his head up and down.

At that moment the world changed. We were at war.

I gave blood later that day, they were having a blood drive at work (previously scheduled). There was a lot of people giving blood. But it wasn't needed.

We thought tens of thousands must have died, nobody knew how bad it was or who did it.

I was in my 8th grade English class, at a tiny private school somewhere in MN. They told us that something "major was occurring on the East cost". Didn't know what was happening until later that day when I saw it on TV.
