    Reading the garbage some people post is disgusting. All of the bravery and patriotism shown on that day really showed America's heart. Now people want to take away from all of those accomplishments by claiming the government was responsible for the mayhem. Ridiculous!

    Actually, I remember all of it, and crying for days, weeks....couldn't get it out of my mind. I still choke up whenever I see the footage shown again and I will NEVER forget that day and the aftermath. NO American should ever forget it!

    I was fresh out of boot camp, on barracks support waiting to class up for common core Aviation Electronics school in Pensacola, FL. That was a weird day.

    I remember thinking something that still troubles me today, As I was being driven to school that day and seeing how clear the sky was and the weather being perfect, I seriously thought, "Today's going to be a good day." - Life can come up with the cruelest ironies.

    The first few days, I was too shocked to think or remember anything of the events themselves. Shock soon gave way to anger, but anger soon gave way to curiosity and a desire to make sense out of the madness. That's when I began to question what might have led up to these events, and how much of a factor blowback might have played in the attacks. It was only then that I really began studying the U.S. and its foreign policy in the Middle East over the last fifty years, and Operation Ajax (1953), left very unsettling questions in my mind.

    All those poor people running for their lives from the destruction. It was a sad, sad day.

    But we rose out of such a horrible event and what I remember from that is the country becoming MORE UNITED.

    The images of planes crashing into buildings is permanently etched on my mind from that day! It made me wonder if the US was under attack and whether this was happening or about to happen in every major city, including this one! And if so................???????????

    Right up there with that, I`ll also never forget how the country came together as one for a relatively long time afterwards!

    How quiet the skies were after. No planes were allowed to fly anywhere in America. And mostly the sadness of the tragedy.

    I'll be honest I wasn't shocked when I heard or saw it. Being around the miltary so much we knew it was coming.
    We had been warned over that it was coming. I'm not saying we deserved it just saying I wasn't surprised by it.

    I wasn't shocked either. :-/ That felt strange since almost everyone else I knew (except my ex-military friends) were basically thrown into hysterical instant shock, I do remember thinking "well that's horrible but was bound to happen, sadly:-( eventually".

    Yeah I remember thiking how terrible how this was but I did not react the way most did. I'd say that most who we're in the Military or were close to someone in it didn't react as strongly.

    I remember being in elementary school. 5th grade to be exact. And students were being called home left and right, but they would not tell us why. It wasn't until after lunch that we found out what happened. I remember thinking that something did not seem right about it. Turns out I was right....

    Hoping my dad and brother were no where in the area... my dad lived a little ways from there, though he went there often due to his job- my brother only lives about 8 miles from there, so I was very worried about him... luckily neither one of them were in the city when it happened- unfortunately, later I was informed that one of my uncles was there, and lost his life on that tragic day... May they all Rest in Peace-

    Heard it on the radio and when I came to realize it was not a , "War of the Worlds", type broadcast but real.. wondered how I was going to get home. Was the airport closed? Was I-70 closed or anyother major highway? Is everyone OK...remember calling my best friend once my plane landed...talking to him all the way home, I was scared. And after that for a few days, and I did not live in a air pattern or close to a airport but for a few days the skys were creepy silent. I know...TMI.

    It was the first world event which was captured live on TV really, wasn't it? It was a bit surreal being able to see it unfold as if it was a film.

    For me personally, the worst images from the day were the ones showing people jumping out of the windows. That still haunts me. I can't even begin to imagine the despair and terror they must have be feeling for jumping from the 102nd floor to be an option for them. They didn't show much of that during the day (I'm assuming they either didn't have the footage or felt it was too horrific to show as in the evening as they did put out warnings of distressing images) but in the evening, it was basically on a news loop and I watched it over and over again as they showed people jumping. Absolutely awful

    I was in NJ when the towers fell. I followed the events through out the day and I was particularly outraged by the report of the 5 "middle-eastern" men caught dancing on top of a van cheering and celebrating when the towers were coming down. The news media reported on the event for just 2 weeks after 911...and the story was dropped completely!!!

    I've since tracked the story and thought it was very peculiar that these men were found to be Israelis "DRESSED-UP AS ARABS" and they were caught blowing-up a truck in NYC, while others were later caught with a vanload of explosives, $4,000 in cash, maps of major New York City targets and box-cutters??

    I've since studied the event in great detail, including the court case where these 5 men were tried in the in Federal court only to find out that 2 of those men were from the Israeli intelligence service (the Mossad), and to date there have been a total of 125 Israelis caught in the months prior to and shortly after 911, many of which were found carrying Arab clothing, "learn to fly manuals," explosives, video camers of US infrastructure (bridges, tunnels, power stations etc.) "with emphasis on structural supports" and copies of the Koran? But again, not a word from the media??

    So to answer your question, about what I remember most...

    Everything.

    From exactly what I was doing & how I felt, to my fellow Americans fighting for their lives & the lives of their fellow Americans. The terror that I felt, the terror that I knew others felt. 9/11 was probably the most terrifying day of my life. The look on Everyone's face was a look I had never seen in my life. Everyone was scared because we didn't know what to expect next.

    President Bush was OUR ROCK in those days of despair.

    Why have so many forgotten?

    I remember sitting in front of the TV for most of the day watching coverage of it. Unfortunately, 9/11 is my younger sisters' bday & I almost punched both of them because all they could do was complain about how it was ruined & this is what it will always be remembered for. To this day they know not to ever say that again.

    You're an idiot. People are good at photoshopping. I know a bunch of people in that area when 9/11 happened who all say the conspiracy theories are complete bullshit through first-hand knowledge. Quit being a tool.

    He's not being a tool. Building 7 aka The Salomen Building, did fall... This happens to be the building Enron stored its paperwork in.

    Here is the BBC's reporting on that with some of their footage from different angles.



    and here is an interview on Danish TV where a Danish chemist is talking abut has research on a species of thermite found in the WTC Towers debris:

    I was shocked and scared and sad. I checked my kids out of school. I didn't know what might be next. By the end of the day, I knew that we, as Americans, would nip that shit in the bud.

    I saw the first one and thought OMG it's true: the air traffic controllers ARE overworked after all. Then when the second one hit, my brain just went to mush. I still never even considered it was a terrorist attack.
