Immediately after Sept. 11, 2001 Americans came together. People were more patient, kinder, and showed more compassion and care. As time went on, our fears diminished and so do a lot of that kindness, care, and compassion towards others. I hope everyone takes a minute to remember those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. Remember how you felt when you saw the towers fall, the plane crash into the pentagon, and the one that crashed in the Pennsylvania field. Remembering those that died by showing compassion and care to those who really need it. God bless America, God bless us all.

I remember that day well, and will never forget! As I read this blog, chills went through me, as on that day, as I turned on the news, just after it had happened, I couldn't believe what I was seeing on the TV! My husband at the time, was traveling on business, as I was living in Florida and was preparing for a hurricane to hit my area. Being my husband wasn't with me at that time, I felt so alone! It took days for him to return, as they had stopped all airline flights! I had two cousins who were in the towers at that time, trying to rescue victims of the attack. One was a policeman, the other a fire fighter, and thankfully, they both came out alive! I also have a brother inlaw who is a doctor, and devoted his time in helping anyone he could! As we lost so many, there were many heros to thank, who never thought for a second not to save lives! This day will never be forgotten, and we need to stay positive, and have good things come out of it, as I heard many who have lost loved ones, have set goals to carry on the loss in honor to have them live on! I have a brother, who is a vietnam veteran, and his birthday falls on this day, to which he wishes not to celebrate, but to honor, remember, and respect this day, as so many lives were touched! We need to exterminate these terrorists, and those kinds of people, as they train their children to hate and kill! They have no use what so ever to be in this world!

i cried all day long. I know people who lost friends and family members and its all too awful. WE in America have been very lucky that we are not exposed to this kind of horror as a matter of everyday life...Just think how it must be in Iraq,,or in Isreal..or other places where violence is frequent and random. Many of the civilians are now dependant on prescriptoin drugs just to be able to function at all. someone I love very much travels in dangerous conditions to dangerous places all the time. Every time I hear of a plane crash, or bombs going off,,My guts get all twisted up. I ve waited many times to get the lists of victims of crashes and disasters..even calling/writing frantically to various foreign embasseys and newspapers. When the Australian Embassy in Jakarta was bombed,,I went totally off the deep end. This particular friend's business headquarters were directly across the street from the Embassy,,we had just texted each other and he had left the building to catch a courier. 5 minutes later I was watching the BBC news and a breaking news story of the bombing said several people on the street had died . It was the worst time in my entire life..and I will never forget those emotions. Thankfully, he was ok. He is in Afghanistan right now and I am not dealing with it very well at all. Probably part of why I had such a hard time yesterday I can only imagine what the familys of those lost in 911 and the familys of all the soldiers must go through.

Yesterday morning I was on break during the actual crash time....flashback, my daughter(17 at the time) was heading to NYC for a looksee at Pratt...she was caught up in the diversions and re-routes of the day...eventually she landed in Philly-was stuck there for 4 days till she could get home...tears and fear for our fellow persons in NYC were the topic, but a more personal fear for the daughter also.... I remember looking up in the sky that day-no planes..it was like the whole world had stopped moving..so sad and very scarry.... for those who lost their family members and loved ones...it must be a very challenging day...one i know i will never forget! e/a

God bless us all. I remember desperately trying to change my ticket from September 1 to September 11 so I can spend more time with my ex husband who was in Florida, I was unsuccessful, so I came back on the 1st. He had to stay one day longer and ended up getting a ticket for the 12th. I was an airline rep at the time and sitting at my desk when the screen went red, an accident, lives lost, terrible tragedy, few minutes later it was a chilling reality of what is happening. I never left the office for the next 72 hours. When I got home I had a card to R.S.V.P. my family friend and financial advisor was in the meeting at WTC that day, he never made it out. I hope that none of us, nor our children, grandchildren or any living creatures, centuries from now, will have to witness such horror. Let?s remember all those who departed this world so untimely in our prayers tonight. T.

The first thing I did this morning even before making coffee was to hang my American Flag in front of my home. Seven years later it's still hard to watch the replays of that awful horrible day.

I remember being at my girlfriend's place as she woke me up frantically. Her folks had gone on vacation that day, and were in the air when the planes had hit. Just seeing the chaos on the tv, and knowing that people we knew and cared about were unaccounted for was almost too much for us to bear. I can't remember just how relieved we were when her mother called the house to tell us they had landed on the east coast, where a lot of planes were being diverted. To this day, I haven't forgotten that, nor have I been able to wrap my brain around the true tragedy of it all. Borders separate us, but anyone can draw a line. The main thing to remember is that regardless if we're Canadian, American, Colombian, Japanese, Iraqi or what have you, we're a family. A messed up family, but a family nonetheless. Sometimes we Canadians get that momentary feeling of invulnerability. You know, it's almost a conceit shared through our country that everybody loves us. Who'd want to hurt a Canuck? Then we get the reports from the frontline that another 3 Canadian soldiers have died, or that a suspected terrorist party has been apprehended in my city, or that there have been plans to bomb our subways. That feeling disappears, and the fear sinks in. And then slowly it vanishes, and the whole circle starts up again. If my 35 years of existence have taught me anything, it is that nothing is a sure thing, but you do what you can to make this world at least a bit more tolerable for the people around you. Fear is a powerful thing, but not so powerful as loving one another.
