Now, its 9 years ago that the World trade center was destroyed in a terrorist attack, im sure everybody remembers looking at the tv and going "Wat the.....?"

i was like 7 years old and i didnt fully understand what was going on, but i do remember staring at the tv,looking at the part of the Facade that was still standing and going "Wow...something bad happened there"

9 years ago, and still people are having nightmares about it,which is,ofcourse,normal, it had a major impact upon the collegues of the firefighters and policemen that went in to save thoses who were trapped and died when the towers collapsed,and it...it is just....a major event which still has its impact today,in terms of people who still cant blieve what happened that day,personally,i didnt get the whole picture until like, a few years later,when i realized and accepted what had happened

i strongly believe that violence doesn't solve anything its fighting fire with fire, more and more and more untill it's too late and when we realize what we have done wrong, it is too late to change it[editing this part along the way]




discuss about 9/11,the impact it had and the effects it had on you ,your actions, thoughs,beliefs,views and such

I've heard they're on schedule to have the memorial built for the tenth anniversary.

I heard about it nine years ago and could not comprehend, although it did no affect me personally I think it has really shocked me that people are willing to kill so many people, for whatever reason.

I'm reminded of 9/11 whenever I play Jenga.

No seriously!

Just because *looks at Location* Netherlands didn't get blown up, doesn't mean you shouldn't mourn for us. Evry1 shud mourn fr ur loses at 9-||!



Though it is interesting how no one sheds a tear for the victims of other terrorist attacks, even in Western countries, but 9-11 is srs bsnss.

(because it was all Bush' fault!11)

I'm getting sick of this too, it's a terrorist attack that killed lots of people, you all cry for that, but when it's about the people dying because of the war in afganistan, you don't shed a tear. Get over it. Also, I think more people died in that war than the number of people that died in that "terrorist attack".

I'm curious to know if anyone here on TIF believes the conspiracy theories. (Not saying believing them makes you bat [cabbage] or anything, just curious)

Noone mentions the 7/7 bombings in London anymore... It wasn't as big, but still.

Anyway all I can say is

Move.
On.

Nor the Oklahoma City bombing, or the Oakland Earthquake, or Pearl Harbor, the list goes on.

Really? That's awesome. :thumbup:

I remember exactly what I was doing, I was sitting in the kitchen with my older sister and my mother when my sister screamed and told me to look at the TV, and it was saying that the planes had hit. I didn't really understand it until later that day at school when people explained it to me. It was horrible. :cry:

Let's just say, if they're true, it wouldn't suprise me.

I was 4 at the time, so I personally didn't have any idea of what was going on when that happened.

I was like "Cool, explosion," when it happened, but in honestly, I see this thread every year, and people are still making a huge deal out of 9/11, as if Americans have never died before. I know people that lost relatives on that day because I live relatively close to NYC, and I while feel sorry for them, people need to stop pretending the terrorist attacks on that day were the most significant loss of American lives ever.

And I'm an average guy. I don't see anything wrong with anyone believing any conspiracy theory.

It was easily the biggest loss of US civilians, and on our own soil no less. I say we should get this thread, and one next year for the 10th anniversary, then start to let it go the way of Pearl Harbor.

And it led to the Afghanistan war, and the Iraq war (though less directly), two things that are still very going on. We can pass off military losses in away, it's people in the army, they were risking their lives for their country, but civilian tragedies are something much more frightening to the public. We can hear about an IED going off in Iraq, killing two soldiers, but we don't ever have to worry about that. An attack on civilian targets, there's not much anyone can do to protect themselves from something like that. I'm not the type of person to worry about this, but civilian attacks are always more dramatic than military casualties, especially on our own soil.
