Yes, agreed.

Does anyone remember what they were doing that dreadful morning. I was doing training missions in the mountains of California and was actually asleep when it happened.

I personally take frequent moments to think about those affected by 9/11. Not only those who lost their lives, but those who lost loved ones. and those who lost something else. As I work in the Law Enforcement Community, I am surrounded every day by constant reminders of that day.

Has anyone ever given thought about the 911 dispatchers, most of whom talked those people through their final moments? How heart wrenching that must have been to sit there assuring these people that everything would be alright, then listen to them perish as the towers collapsed? Many of those dispatchers resigned their positions following the events of 9/11.

Yes, I pray frequently for the victims of 9/11. I pray for their families. And I pray for peace of mind for those who lived through it. Every one of them.

My thoughts are with all.
it was an awfull day,one never to be forgotten.
We were buying a new car,and watching the TV,while
we were waiting for all the paper work to go through,
a man walked in and said he needed to turn the TV over,
i thought it was a film at first,and then we realised what was going on
the silence then the gasps of horror,as we watched the
Towers go, i will never forget it.
God bless all who perished.

I'll never forget it. I was in a meeting, and somebody came in and interupted to say what had happened.

Everybody slowly left the meeting, and I put the internet news on on my pc. I couldn't believe it - it was too dreadful to comprehend.

All our our initial thoughts were that it must be a hoax of some kind, it was too much like something from a disaster movie. And then that awful feeling when it started to sink in that it was actually real.

My thoughts to all who perished in the 9/11.

Kate, I also thought it was a hoax until BBC channel reported about the attacks. I was overwhelmed by this as I never expect the two tallest buildings to be the target for hijacking but it was also pointed out that the passengers were trying to maneuver it away from the White House(the supposed target).
