  8. I was... about 2 months old when this happened. I never knew how things happened and stuff. I only kknew: 'The two twin towers got flew in by a plane and collapsed, many people die'. I was like: Oh... that is bad, that shouldnt have happened, but people die more often, so I got on pretty fast with it. Last year thoough a teacher showed footage of two guys who were making some movie about the life of a firefighter, on that exact day. They had footage of what was happening inside the building, the collapsion and everything around it. Then I realized what was that bad. It was mostly the cruel way the people had to die/or barely escape it. Thausands of people probably got a trauma, wouldnt dare leaving their homes again and I dont know what.
    Since then I always take a little time to remember this, even know I was only 2 months old.
  9. If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.
    – Sandy Dahl, wife of pilot of Flight 93 Jason Dahl

    I will always remember...

  12. I'm not sure if I can make it, but I'll definitely try. And I'd like to compliment you with your choice of words. Because honestly: no matter what you think about the 9/11 events there is no denying that it was a major disaster which ruined thousands of lives. This my friends is a matter of respect for those who didn't make it.

    My hats off to you guys, I'll definitely try to attend.

  14. I was 5 months old when this happened, and I've been told I saw it on live television although I obviously can't remember. I will try to be there but not sure if I can make it.
  15. I will be at work, but I will be thinking about all of you (them) for sure.
  16. In social studies today I could barely keep myself together watching the videos...so sad. I saw people's hair on fire and people jumping out of the world trade center. I wasn't even thought of yet when this happened.
  17. Wish I could attend but I will be at work. I was a senior in HS when the attacks happened and remember very vividly every moment of that day. Thank you for taking time to honor the fallen and the survivors who will truly #neverforget.
  18. Let's hope no more violence like that ever happens again. We learn with the mistakes of our past so we
    never repeat 'em again. May all the deaths of that day haven't been in vain, and that at least that serves for the future generations to never commit any more atrocities or violence anymore.

  19. Oh yes, that's today. Thanks for reminding us, I guess.
  20. Unfortunately I don't think that's possible. Every generation had their own tragedy that they remember... My grandparents remember the JFK assassination, my parents remember 9/11, I don't have anything yet. I was only a year and a half old when this happened. So so far, there is no major tragedy of any sort that I have to remember.

    But yes, I pray that things like this can stop happening.

    And if you want another relevant MLK Jr quote,
    "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate can not drive out hate, only love can do that."
