I still remember how unreal it seemed as the first pictures appeared, and how horrified I was at the simple scale of the murders.

9am UK time myself and 3 friends booked flights to the US, 5 hours later it happened. Didn't believe it at first. Will never forget. We still travelled to California that November and I took my son to the east coast the following August. A mad minority must not be allowed to defeat the majority.

I worked in the North tower from 9/16/99 until 9/11/01. I still can't believe those buildings are gone.

This is my first class of high school kids who weren't alive or were just born on September 11, 2001. They have a difficult time understanding the shock of that day. I teach a week-long unit on it every September. I will not forget that day as long as I live.

Good for you Perris.

Must be a good school system. I'm surprised the PC police allow it.

Never Forget.

People forget how crazy it was on that day – every flight grounded, people expecting another attack any minute. My wife and I were in the Black Hills that day, they shut down Mt. Rushmore that day worried about another attack. The next night we went and before the usual lighting ceremony a park ranger came out and gave a very emotional speech about how the U.S. has been thru tough times before and came thru it. You could hear people sobbing in the crowd. Something everyone needs to remember.

I just watched this very powerful PBS doc on the Pentagon strike:


I recommend it.

I feel like, to a large extent, we have slipped back into a pre-9/11 mentality. A sort of "nothing like that could ever happen again" attitude.

I want to comment at length, but would probably end up in the Dawghouse.

I'll simply say, Never Forget.

It was unbelievable when it happened. Memory will not fade of this.

RIP for the fallen and never forget.
