I'm just happy 9/11 is on a Saturday this year, no pointless memorial service in school. Anyways, hundreds of people die every day in various accidents. While it sucks hard that this many people died, it's what happens.

I was in highschool when it happened, my computer app 2 class, hitting on this cheerleader named crystal when we were told. I remember being angry - and scared (will i go to war? will i die?)

Needless to say, it was a tragedy that probably defined American politics for the last decade, almost half of my life. It's certainly one of those events you will never forget where you were when it happened in your lifetime.

9/11 this year? I'm working from 9-5 pulling a rare Saturday shift.

I was a very self centered kid at 11 years old. All I cared about was that I got out of school early. I remember sitting in Science class, digging into the black tabletop while my teacher was watching the news. We all went outside and played with lightsabres, I think, after we got home. It wasn't until a week later when I was listening to the radio during a car trip when the reality of what occurred started to make sense to me. My pettiness left a bad taste in my mouth, even then. It was a bad few days emotionally after that as I tried to fully grasp the situation.

9/11 was horrible but perhaps instead of dwelling on something nearing a decade past, we should all cry and pray for the hundreds of thousand of innocent civilians that we have killed in the Middle East [mainly Iraq].

At the time, I can remember being more upset by the news stations taking over every channel meaning the normal cartoons were canceled after school.
Although, one thing that has stuck with me in particular about this event is The Falling Man. I remember watching a documentary about it and it sends shivers down my back every time I see that photo. Not a pleasant way to go at all.

Its been nine years, it was horrible yes, now get over it.

Other wise i'm gonna strat posting every year a thread marking the other 9/11, the day when the US helped to install the dictator of chille and caused all the suffering in that area.

The crusades.

The famine that resulted because the church declared the potatoe the fruit of the devil.

The nukes droped on japan.

I could go on and on.

I was around 7 when it happened. The reality of it never really 'got to me' until I was at least 11. It's kind of tragic for something like that to happen, unprovoked, but it is now the past.

Trivia; Drowning Pool's "Bodies" were censored in America, due to the people who jumped off the building on that day

Twelve American soldiers face charges over a secret "kill team" that allegedly blew up and shot Afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as trophies.

Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven others are accused of covering up the killings and assaulting a recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians.

In one of the most serious accusations of war crimes to emerge from the Afghan conflict, the killings are alleged to have been carried out by members of a Stryker infantry brigade based in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan.

According to investigators and legal documents, discussion of killing Afghan civilians began after the arrival of Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs at forward operating base Ramrod last November. Other soldiers told the army's criminal investigation command that Gibbs boasted of the things he got away with while serving in Iraq and said how easy it would be to "toss a grenade at someone and kill them".

Eventhough I agree that it was a very sad event, and it should never be have really happened nor happen again. I have to say that America are kinda viewed as terrorists from other countries.. It does not justify anything though. But it is probable that the kill count of the wars that came from it have begun to become comparable to the deaths in 9/11, perhaps even surpassed.

It's a REALLY big shaft.

I didn't catch fire, I used the can of hairspray as a flamethrower and pointed it at my arm.

how are you going to ignore my posts when I'm offering to let you live as my vassal in two weeks time?

September 11 should have been the biggest wakeup call to the American administration and the western world. The consequences should have been an engagement with the Muslim world that was not predicated on control, but on mutual interests and respect. 9 years later the world is far more dangerous because it didn't serve as a wakeup call but simply as an excuse to more overtly pursue a doomed foreign policy, and one that has been operating for hundreds of years.

With so many trees in the city you could see the spring coming each day until a night of warm wind would bring it suddenly in one morning. Sometimes the heavy cold rains would beat it back so that it would seem that it would never come and that you were losing a season out of your life. But you knew that there would always be the spring as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person had died for no reason. In those days though the spring always came finally but it was frightening that it had nearly failed.

Very nicely articulated :thumbup:

I just don't get why they decide to do it 9 years later? It's randomly funny though.

Because it took them 9 years to think of it.

I agree the mourning needs to move on, but its a significant event people fail to see that. This was American History being written. And from now on it will be in every American History textbook on the shelves. Not because of the amount of people that lost their lives, but it was the first real, successful, attack on the US lower 48 by an outside source since 1775. Thats huge. That sends shockwaves. The only one in between that was Japan's attack on Hawaii. I think the most chilling thing is while watching a show on TV about it recently (Natl Geo or Discovery i don't remember), they had home video with these awful loud cracking sounds. Almost like a bullwhip crack played over a concert speaker setup. Then explained that, that was the sound of people jumping out of the WTC and hitting the concrete or glass below.

I was in biology class in the 10th grade when it happened. Joined the Marine Corps about 2-3 years later.
