Believe it or believe it not, it is 6 years to the day since 9/11.


It the poor families who have to get through today I feel sorry for. 1366 people died who were on the above floors at at the actually floor.

2974 died in all and 24 remain missing. Thats includes passengers on the planes that were hijacked.:(

I still think back with horror at what I saw. And then, when I saw the French TV Team's documentary on the NYFD including exclusive footage from within the towers, and the sound made by bodies hitting cars and the street, my flesh creeps. The most sickening sound I have ever heard. The voice of the cameraman "That sound you can hear ( a sort of crunchy mushy sound) is bodies landing, but I am not going to turn the camera around". It will live with me always.

i remember the day, i was cuttin the grass and a mate phoned to tell me to turn on the telly, unbelievable was my immediate thought, and physically sick when they fell, absolute horror. has anybody seen loose change? the evidence is quite astonishing but the guy who tells it does tell it in a pretty bias way, tis hard what to make of it all still. theres also a vid on youtube, its a telephone recording of a guy ot the top of one of the towers speaking to emergency services, you hear him scream 'oh my god' the second it begins to fall, then it cuts out, i wish id never heard it.

There are moments in history that people will "never forget", this is definitely one of them.

I was in school, a senior, outside at marching practice for first period. We had a good run through our shows for the game that week, and everyone was in good spirits. One of my best friend's had 2nd period English with me and I remember walking down the halls thinking everyone looked weird. Maybe some teacher had a hard quiz, or the school announced something during the morning announcements on the PA system (which we never heard being in band).

The English teacher said that class was going to be cancelled because of "what happened" and she was leaving to go home to her family. I didn't hate my class or teacher, but I didn't like the particular short story we were analyzing. I asked permission to head back to the band room, since nothing was going on, which was granted. I spent the hour practicing for some upcoming regional auditions (which I placed first in :D).

3rd period, Chemistry, rolls around which outside of band, was my favorite class. Not so much because I enjoyed chemistry (I liked it, but nothiing I wanted to persue long term), but because the teacher was so fun. He's always pulling pranks, or coming up with fun experiments/labs that always kept the class interested. Today he looks down. We were still waiting on the class to file in, there were only about 5 of us in the room out of around 32 at the time. I went to his desk and asked if he was ok, to which he just nodded. I shrugged, assuming it was something personal and walked away.

About 10 minutes later, everyone had settled in and were waiting on the teacher to move. By this time I finally realized something happened that was causing everyone to be weird, but was still clueless. Someone spoke up and asked to turn the tv on to see if anything new was reported. The teacher turned on the tv and left the room. Thats when I finally saw what happened. During this class period, school was dismissed and me and "the guys" all went to my folk's restaurant to talk about it.

It doesn't seem like 6 years for me. Time has passed so quickly. Progress has been made, but the recovery for both structures and families will still take many many years.

What you got against Americans? I wouldn't object only that it is on this very thread on a topic that is sensitive and is ment to be respectful towards a country that in a personal way I owe! All I ask is you show some respect!

Well, immediately what comes to mind is this little thing most historians have agreed to call "World War II". When England was basically ****ed due to lack of military weapons and being financially screwed still from the first World War.

I'm sure I could come up with a few more examples, but I'm at work at the moment. I might play this game later :)

<Edit>
Now, don't get me wrong, I will be the first to talk shit about America being fat, lazy, arrogant, etc. However, try using something like "Most Americans". I don't like being associated with those I'm not. Thanks.

Just because you hate them don't mean you got to show em no respect. Why don't you try for once and you might get something back like a little more respect.
