the topic is where where u when u heard the news

was i suppost to say woke up heard the new i was so devastated i cryed ..

ya no really someone gives there pont on 911 u hate me not everyone cares

and if i did that someone would kill me but sorry all 100% people in this world has to care about it

u will never force 911 down my throte EVER my thoughts on the subject is that u dont like it

than just walk away

Yes so say where you were, comment on the reaction.

This is NOT the thread for posting your uninformed childish pseudo-political bull****.

I suggest you walk away, because the reality is you just show what a childish little jerk you are - saying nothing that other childish little jerks haven't said before. And then most grew up to realise what childish BS they were spouting.

im one of many who go on there merry day because 9-11 doesntr mean anything to us

Any living soul in the western world who says 9/11 means nothing to them is either ignorant or lying. It was an iconic, defining point in global history.

so u get it now

I got it from day 1, seems you don't though!

And learn to spell before you even try to speak on a similar level to the adults in here!

Tending a hang over from the previous night. I was sitting in my flat at the time watching the news and was shocked. I thought WW3 was about to start and the "were next" thinking got out of control

Not at all. But to use your point against you, where in the topic does it say, "what is your opinion on what happened?"

You could have just said, "I was in bed and watched it on the news" but instead you chose to make your opinion public on an anonymous website. I'm with Nik Louch, if you want to voice your views then feel free to take it to Times Square and see if you get a better reaction from them than you do from us.

Oh, and learn to spell. Granted, it's more frustrating because I don't like your vocalising of your opinion, but really. You seem like you're about 10 years old, which kind of fits in nicely with your views on 9/11. It's hard to understand the feelings of others when you weren't even born at that time. If you're older than 10 though...yikes.

I can't wait to see the skyline restored.

I still miss the twin towers, they were inspiring and defining landmarks!

It's kind of weird watching movies and seeing the towers.

I mean, buildings get knocked down all the time, but these two are (in)famous..

Nonsense. You clearly think and act like a child starved of attention and trying to act "I don't care what you think" and "I know better"- mostly because you are terribly afraid of the world... You are quite embarrassing and pathetic.

I feel lucky to have taken some pics before I left the US the July before it all happened.

My father (who has since passed away) and I were accompanying my brother and mother to the airport. I remember arriving at my brothers house around 8 am the morning and watching ABC news about some small plane crashed into the towers. Didn't make a big deal of it, my brother loaded his luggage into my dads car and we went on our merry way. On the way to the airport, we heard a breaking news report about the US being under attack. It was just so hard to analyse, we still went on our way to the airport. When we arrived, we were informed by personnel that all flights out of Jamaica were cancelled. My mother and brother didn't get a flight until Saturday of that week. When they arrived in the US (this was vacation by the way), they said the atmosphere throughout their stay was just so tense and sad. I remember being at home and just watching the devastation CNN, it was so hard to comprehend, even to this day, its just so unbelievable that such a thing happened, persons jumping out of burning building just to save their lives and seeing both towers collapse, it was just heartbreaking. The when you think about brave fire fighters who tried to save the lives of many but ended up losing theirs in the end. A sacrifice so many of us around the world owe them. 9/11 affected every country on this earth, even here in Jamaica, it changed the way we think about ourselves and also the self awareness that it developed, from suspicion, discrimination, anguish, processes (going through airport security is not like what use to be pre 9/11) down to just plane paranoia. My heart goes out to all the men, women who lost their lives that day in New York, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon.

I've said it before and I'll do say it again: I can't spell but my opinon is in English. I'm an adult.


You are both ignorant and illiterate. Your opinion being in English doesn't make it any less nonsensical or ill informed.

Choosing to act like a jack ass is neither laudable nor acceptable. There was a time where in people like yourself would have been taken out the back and beaten for being so damned ignorant.

I've known many a person that can't spell, and sure enough they make mistakes on a regular basis. However, looking at the structure of your posts and the spelling and grammar, I would presume that you are used to have a 140 character limit on text messages and just couldn't be bothered to take the time to get yourself to write properly. But we truly are digressing now and we should stop and focus on the topic's question.

I was in college at the time. I was sleeping (skipped classes to sleep in). My roommate ran in and woke me up as soon as the news started covering the 1st plane hitting. We watched the 2nd plane hit live on the news. It was definitely rough to watch.

I'm not sure I follow. We share the same odd emotion when seeing movies with the towers in them but yet you say they weren't defining landmarks. Look at the before and after pictures of the NYC skyline. The silence is deafening. They were certainly defining both physically and symbolically.

In Oz

Came home, very early morning, and put on the NBC Today show as i always do at that obscene hour (here its on at like 3am) and had the sound off, just after the first plane hit and thought it was an accident.

Was watching with the sound on when the second one hit and thought it was maybe a movie, then saw both towers fall.

Total shock.

Went down to the American consulate in Sydney about 700m from my place and laid some flowers that day.

Thankfully no one i know was in the buildings that day, they had run late for work.

Still bothers me to see the footage of that day, and im an aussie, and a former soldier. Ive seen people die close up, but for some reason the footage of that day is harder to deal with. Maybe because its innocent people, not on a battlefield, and no terms of engagement. Its an affront to humanity that should never be forgotten.

ill leave it at this

United States of America

The Star Spangled Banner

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;

Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,

O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:

Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,

In fully glory reflected now shines in the stream:

'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh, long may it wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion

A home and a country should leave us no more?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution!

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved home and the war's desolation!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

let's all remember all the people who lost theres lifes

hope this makes everyone who live in the usa happy

Personally I don't believe they were land marks of any consequence before their demise.

I think their value was derived from their down fall.

I mean, if the planes hadn't have taken them down, we wouldn't be talking about them as examples of master architecture >.<

There is definitely an enormous gap where they were, but they weren't "special".

I hope people understand what I'm trying to say D:

I think they very much were. They were huge great obelisks to 70's design. They were part of the backdrop of NYC just as much as Empire State Building, Chrysler Tower and so on.

Like I said, I'm not trying to belittle their value or cause an argument.

I'll simply say that whilst I agree their a glaring exclusion from the skyline, architecturally I feel they weren't noteworthy.

Last thing I will say on the matter as that's not the point of this thread.

home watching it on tv. i remember hearing the jets taking off for new york from the airbase that was a few miles from my home. that night i still had to go into work "even though they closed the mall down in fear" and had to paint all of the restrooms. management did buy us dinner and we watched the events on tv in the conference room. hard to believe this happened 11 years ago, seems like yesterday to me.
