I was listening to Howard Stern. There was an initial report and I think they thought it was fake then the word got in. I always remember Stern saying "We knew something like this was going to happen" I think about that sometimes.

My stepmother was in tower two and was I believe in the stairwell when the second plane hit. She had worked there in 93 and been through that so she didn't hesitate. She rounded everyone up and got them out quick. I called my Dad when it started and after that he ran over there and was one of those people outside.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Wow Lester, I didn't realize your family was that close to the scene of the attacks.  Glad they both got out OK.

My stepmom was a real hero that day. What I love is that they both went back to work the next day! She in the Brooklyn office.

It's here.  It's been 10 years.  I want tomorrow (today) to be over.  I feel sick, been dreading it.  I finally read all the posts.  I'm trying, really hard not to become crazed again.  I had many customers and friends right there, that day, but I know I'm fortunate.  Here's my thought: It's the most terrible single day in the history of man.  The insanity, the murderous cruelty, the single-minded evil, the epic destruction...  I can't stand to think about it.  I really avoid talking about this.  It decimates me.  It makes me hopeless.

As cynical as I can be somtimes, I never feel hopeless. I do hope, in my heart of hearts, that this day is really without incident. I understand people's desire for remembrance and commemoration, something I do not share entirely. I just hope that the unthinkable does not happen. If it is a quiet and eventless day, I will be happy.

Only that topic makes me feel that way, hopeless.  You don't understand.

People may have forgotten it actually took like 2 hours for the towers to fall which is why so many people did manage to get out.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to anyone who has contributed in any way these past ten years to keeping us safe from a repeat of September 11, 2001, particularly members of the armed forces and the families who love them and miss them during their absence from home. To those who have fallen in defense of democracy, let their sacrifices never be forgotten. In tribute to those who lost their lives ten years ago, let there be meaning in their deaths by having we who survive use that terrible day as a lesson in the savagery of the foe, that we may never again be unprepared and never again see the like of 9-11-01. It is my deepest hope that those who once celebrated the events of that dark day will forever have cause to replace their laughter with bitter tears.

I was in 2nd grade when the bastards killed the innocents, but that's not the end. One of my class mates, her uncle was one of the first responders and charged into the building, but didn't come out alive.  Bluesad

Best post of the entire thread.   Some karma coming your way too.

Double werd, brother!  Yamamoto said it on the deck of his battelship, and now these scumbags have found out, that they have "awakened a sleeping giant."  The ass kickings wil now continue...

God Bless America!

I'm glad the day passed without any further attacks.  I was very nervous.

However, I was hoping that my Cowboys would administer a little 9/11 butt-kicking to the Jets, but it was not meant to be! BounceGiggle  I think NY had too much cosmic karma going for it on this day!

Yesterday afternoon at about 15h00 our time, Fox News broadcasted their 'Timeline Of Terror' feature and I sat watching the horror once again. At about 15h20, everything got a bit much for me and I went out for a while: the horrific visions in my mind and I could almost hear my heart pounding, just as it did in 2001 at almost the same time. I do believe that I cried then and I know I cried yesterday.  Bluesad

I will add this:

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2036119/9-11-Anniversary-Obama-rounds-day-remembrance-Kennedy-Center.html That final picture of a new dawn breaking in New York: wow.

And this, which I also put on my FB page:
