The 9/11 anniversary to me is just another reminder of how unprepared as a country we were and probably still are if the truth be told. I just feel for all of the people who lost their lives and loved ones in the debacle. But I'm sure they'd rather not be reminded each year of it.

Yeah tell me about it...

I remember this day on 2001, I was in kindergarden and my mom came to pick me up from school early. She told me what happened. When I got home, turned to the news on TV and the rest is pretty self explanatory

Each will commemorate in his own way. I hope against hope this thread doesn't devolve into a political discussion, and wouldn't mind seeing it locked 'ere it does. Some topics don't need threads.

I was setting up a Wal Mart Super Center and I had no idea what was going on as I was using drills and other tools and the part of the store I was in was not open to the public. We all took a break where we were working and it came across the Wal Mart Television Network that was set up in the store and I was shocked, stunned and completely in disbelief. I could not wait to get home to turn on the news and hear what had fully happened. Unfortunately when I heard about it I was on hour 5 out of the 16 hour shift. When I left work the gas pumps were full all the way to the other side of the parking lot. It was truly a sad day in American history and I hope it never happens to the United States or any other country for that matter. I just wished we could all find a common ground to where we could all get along and not war with one another. But unfortunately the real world has some bad people that want to do bad things. Sorry for being so long I just wished humanity could get along and work together instead of against one another.

I've always found it very odd that Bush was reading to school children (insert Bush Joke here) But it really was a tragic day and I hope they get the new building built though!

True that. I don't think 9/11 was quite as tragic as the Great Depression, or World War II. (Even though we won WWII, many lives were lost. :()

I think I saw it last year, was it something kinda like Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield (the filming-style)? Anyway, yeah, my god, I still can't believe it all happened and already 8 years ago :(

That's true of all disasters, but the dates will always be remembered - especially when, as in this instance, it's been named after the date :(
But although it's not nice having to remember these things year-in-year-out, it at least gives us a chance to take a moment each year to remember those lost, and think of their loved ones.
These things can be painful to remember, but should not be forgotten.

Well said ROB. It will be a painful day for the friends and families of those lost, but it would be even more painful if they thought the rest of the world had forgotten. I don't think we ever will. :(

Here's to a brighter future eh, though as others have mentioned, I fear we are ill-prepared to defend ourselves in the future.

Rawr!

I was at work went it all went to heck. I left for a bit until I could get in touch with a good friend of mine, who's dad worked at the Pentagon. Once I heard he was ok, I went back to work and sent almost everyone else home. It was a very somber day. Strangely, outdoors, it was a gorgeous day. I remember it well. It was a little on the cool side, but it was clear and the sky was super blue. The sun shining down on your face was so warming and comforting.

The part that got me the most, was when they were showing the videos in the beginning where the debris was falling from the buildings. As the camera crews zoomed in, we all learned that it wasn't debris, it was people jumping from the top of the building. They seriously curbed the camera views after that. The heat from the floors below where the planes crashed were rising from the buildings and the only way out was to jump. Then the folks on the second tower had to watch in horror as the first tower collapsed. I don't really know what the words are I'm looking for but it's got to be a very "heavy" decision to choose the person you are going to die with, clasp hands, and then leap to your death. I guess it's a pretty intimate decision, ultimately.
