Topic: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

Seven years ago today, terrorists flew four planes into the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and a field in Shankeville, PA. I remember exactly what I did that day, and what I even had for lunch and where I ate it that day. I just wanted to say to the Americans on this board Never Forget and curious to know if anyone remembers where they were when it happened.

I will never forget that day. That was when I swore I would join the military.

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

thanks for making this thread MandoGirl415,
Its always important to reflect and remember those who where lost.  I was in a Med library at the hospital where i worked and did not even know the U.S. had been attacked until i saw all my co-workers were huddled around the tv.
A very surreal day, my brother was there but got out in time, he still is very distant when you ask him about it. His recollection of the day is quite gruesome.

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

Great thread MadoGirl.  I really felt bad when I realized what day it was.....had completely spaced on it in the days up to now.

I was in Cape Cod at the time...we were supposed to fly home the very next day.  When I woke up i heard something about a plane hitting the World Trade Center, and the first thing to pop into my mind was some tiny, single engine plane had probably bumped into one of the buildings, and the newsies were exagerating as usual.  But when I turned on the TV.....all the smoke.....and then just a minute after I turned it on the second plane hit...................just turned my world upside down

Was the day I really began to seriously consider joining the military myself...

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

Personally I can remember feeling shell shocked, it was a work day for me. Don't remember much more than that because it felt so surreal.

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

I can't belive it happened...Even after 7 years, my thoughts around it...it just couldn't be real.

Invite me, too. I would absolutely enjoy torturing that evil bastard to death......

I remember exactly what happened that day. I was in kindergarten and my mom had come downstairs crying, telling me to turn on the news. My dad had worked a block away from the WTC, so she was worried that he had died. I turned on the news and I saw the Towers fall. It was the most horrible thing I have ever seen.

I would rather cause him a slow, painful death. Taking away piece by piece of him, until he realizes that he deserves it...

I was sorta nervous about making this thread. I wasn't sure if it would be allowed. However, I am glad I did now.
I am very happy that your brother was able to get out, and please tell him that every September 11th I'll be thinking of him.
My Aunt worked 5 blocks from the Trade Center she saw everything. We were so scared for her. My dad would have been under the Trade Center in the train station when the plane hit, but he took off for my brother's first day of school. God knows what would have happened had he decided to go into work. One of my best friend's mother went into work late to take my friend to school, so she was never able to make it into the city...she worked in the second tower on the floors the plane impacted. She lost all of her friends that she worked with. By the will of God she is alive today.

Everyone pictured a small single engined plane when they first heard the news. We thought it was an accident at first, but it was obvious once the second plane hit.

I think we all would love a crack at him. I couldn't agree with you more Draco.

I am very sorry you had to experience this event at such a young age. I am very happy that your father made it out safely though. I will think of him every September 11th, it must still bother him at times. Especially when the anniversary comes around.

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

I was 5 when it happened so i don't remember but i have seen footage and heard of it.


Very sad. They should build a monument for the people who died(the inocent ones, not the terrorist)

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

I remember watching what happened and thinking that so many people died for something that they didn't understand or had no part of. But then I come here and see people, especially BFFC Draco, spewing out verbal crap, trying to be a tough guy and am lost! I know that I will most likely be banned from this site and that upsets me as I love starwars and Boba Fett. But what makes u different from them when u say stupid things like that! What happened was the most shocking thing I have witnessed in my 27 years of life. But what you say is wrong, these people don't have the lives that you lead. They believe that your religion is wrong the same way you think that they are wrong. What difference is there that they killed Americans on home soil when you send a troops over there to kill insurgents on their soil. No one is right, each side loses! I cried when I saw what happened in New York but people are still dying! No-one wins!

no doubt such a subject as this will bring the truth out of people and revenge is a kneejerk response.  No one gets banned for voicing an opinion, and yours is shared by many.  Unfortunately, this war- the conflict over oil, all this is som10 few will agree upon.
It does make me sad that few really remember the day only seven years later- it might be the defining event of our time.  it has definitely profoundly affected the face of the world today.

As much as I'd love to challenge you on nearly everything you said, I'm going to overlook this post.  This is a thread to remember the day that should live forever in our minds, and Honor the innocents who died.

If you can't see any difference between Osama Bin Laden and his murderers people like Draco, Appo, Hunter, and myself, well then I'm sorry for you and all the hundreds of thousands of Americans that I know see world and this country in the same light you do.  If you can't just pay your respects and share your thoughts on that day that is on topic with this thread, then I suggest you create your own.  You can bet I'll be one of the first to post there...

Ok...I really need to comment on this because this post bothered me a lot. God forgive me, but the religion they follow IS sick and twisted. What kind of God requires that you kill THOUSANDS of INNOCENT people to get into heaven? The leaders of this group used (and still do) their religion to brainwash people into willingly dying to kill thousands.

And Osama Bin Laden DESERVES to die after what he did to us. I can name at least 5 FAMILIES that I know personally who LOST someone. I know PERSONALLY at least 15 people who were there 1-10 blocks away from the WTC on that day. You're going to tell me that a mass murder like Bin Laden doesn't deserve to die? Especially since he is PROUD as HELL for what he did.

And you want to know the difference between killing these people on American soil and killing soldiers on a battle field? Its the fact that those people that died that day. Their jobs wweren't to die for their countries. Their jobs weren't to defend their country, their families, and their freedom. Those people that died that day were innocent, everyday people. Whereas killing soldiers on a battle field in a war (as absoluely horrible as it is) is different. Those people have decided to become soldiers and to die for what they believe in. On 9/11 those were the innocents. I know too many people who lost someone that day and I almost lost too many people to ever agree with this post.

This thread was meant to share your memories of that day, your feelings about the day, and, most importantly, to remember all those who have died. RD is right, if you want to start a thread on this topic then go ahead.

I am sorry Cujo, It had just upset me...alot.

To get back on topic, I would like to bring up something else. I don't know about anyone else, but I am VERY upset that there is no Freedom Tower yet, hell there isn't even a memorial, after SEVEN YEARS. And yet Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium are pretty much done after less than a year. It makes me so mad. The Pentagon has a permanent memorial right outside where the plane hit. Ground Zero is the victims', families' cemetary. They didn't have a body to bury. This is all they have. And this year may have been the last year for the procession into Ground Zero by the families and the last year for the WTC Memorial lights *see picture in first post*. I don't know about anyone else here, but until there is AT LEAST a permanent memorial for the victims, they can't take away the lights.

Re: September 11, 2001 Anniversery

I went to the WTC when I was 5, a year before 9-11. I remember looking out of the window at one of the highest floors, and it never would have crossed my mind that this would be the final resting place of 3000 innocent people.

I was also upset by Peter's post. Draco, Ralin, MH and I want to kill Osama. What is bad about that? He is an evil man who spreads lies to young Muslims, brainwashing them by telling them that the West is the source of all evil and that we should all be killed because we are "infidels". These people become terrorists, who then kill innocent people in the name of their god, which is as MG said, ridiculous.

All of those people in 9-11 were killed because of Osama. Does anyone deserve to die for no reason? They were just people working at their job. They didn't do a GOD DAMN THING to Osama or the terrorists but they were all murdered!

One of my dad's friends had a girlfriend who was a flight attendant on the first the plane to hit the Towers. According to phone calls made by passengers, she had bravely told the terrorists that they couldn't go into the cockpit. Guess what they did? They stabbed her with a box cutter and killed her.

Osama bin Laden deserves to die more then anyone else on this planet.
