9/11. The day that changed the world forever.

Thoughts & comments. Keep the religious babble in the Religion & Philosophy thread.

edit: it's 2 PM, Friday the 11th of September here.

Also, I was at school in grade 3, and heard my friends talking about "planes flying into the Pentagon". I had no clue what they were talking about. I didn't understand the significance of the attacks for a long while.

i was in 6th grade at the time. scared sh1tless

I remember in elementary school when my 3rd grade teacher tried to get it on TV all day through these crappy rabbit ears and how when I saw a plane during recess I asked my friends if they'd be scared if that happened to us.

Yeah, random thought.

Thanks for reminding me.

I hate September 11th since then because it's always the same nostalgic cheesy sadness and people get all patriotic. I don't see why it has to be such a big deal this long after it's happened.

It was really sad, yes, but why revisit the sadness every year?

Yeah, all politics and theories aside, I think we can all agree that the death of 3,000+ human beings qualifies as a bad day.

I just could not understand what was happening

Yeah man, I didn't get it. I just wanted to watch some cartoons!
#19
How about we make a thread to remember all the other equally and most definitely even more horrendous events in history as well?
#20
i was in 6th grade. we were supposed to be watching "ben-hur", but my teacher forgot to rewind it, so we just happened to watch the news. we saw the second plane hit.

i had no idea what was going on.

i like how this even has given my friends funny and horrible new jokes. for instance, this one was used today in regards to having to take a crap

"be right back, i gotta go drop a plane on the pentagon"

yeah, it sucks that a bunch of people died... but... doesn't really effect me in anyway... (i live in delaware, just so ya know)

This.

But I realized the significance in the coming days and weeks.

I'm getting off the computer, but if this thread is still open tomorrow I'll post my 9/11 experience.

i remember after the first one hit our teacher told us that a plane crashed in one of the biggest buildings in the world or something and then when the second one hit the building went into like shutdown mode and all the students parents came and picked everyone up. also at the time i thought the last war that occurred was world war 2 so i expected the war to be huge. basically i thought i was going to die.

i was pissed that my cartoon channels were overtaken by news broadcasts. that's almost all i remember.

i really hope this thread doesn't turn into arguments about conspiracy theories.

It's remembrance; we should reflect on how we can ensure that something like that doesn't happen again.

Ditto. It was a terrible foreign attack perpetrated by extremists who brought the religion that they fought for to shame.

Sittin' in my 4th grade classroom when it happened, one of the most scary things I've ever seen, when the second plane hit and the tower came down. My teacher was at a loss for words and didn't want to talk about it.
I first saw that documentary meant to be about firefighters in 6th grade, and have seen it 3 times since. Seeing it last year was the most horrifying.

i was in first grade and i had no idea what had happened. my mom came and ate lunch with me at school (shut up it was cool at the time) and told me there was a disaster in New York City. I don't think I truly understood what happened until a few years after it happened.
#33
I still remember the day that happened. I was sitting in class in 3rd grade, when our assistant principal walks in and tells us that a plane crashed into the twin towers. I thought that it was just an accidental crash, I didn't think that it was something that huge. Next thing I know, people's parents started to pick up their kids early, and I was really confused, but was glad that my mom was going to pick me up soon. When I got outside of the school, I was able to smell the smoke in the air, and my mom said that the damage done to the towers was huge. When I got home I turned on the news and saw the whole thing, and I was getting really scared for my dad because he worked in Manhattan. We called him and I was very glad to hear that he worked on the other side of the city, so he was safe at the moment. Being an 8 year old boy at the time, I was confused and scared and thought that we might get hurt, but my mom was there giving me pep talk. Eventually, about 2-3 hours later my dad finally comes home and tells us that they had to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to get back home, and doing so he watched the 2nd tower collapse. I was really scared and was wondering why all of this happened. That was when i first learned what terrorism is.
#34
I remember that day like it was yesterday. I watched on tv in school the second plane hit, bunches of people jumping and both towers go down.

EDIT:
I was in 5th grade. Dunno why its important but everyone else is saying what grade they were in.

I was homeschooled when it happened... My parents didn't know it happened we don't watch the TV much in our house... When my neighbor came home and started playing and I asked him why he was there he said planes crashed into some towers... I really had no idea what he was talking about... then in the coming days I finally realized what happened... It's pretty sad. It seems hard to comprehend something until you are older and realize what life is somewhat. I seem to understand and have deeper feelings for it the older I get.

May this never happen again.

Well there's no real way to stop anybody from doing anything, especially muslim extremists. But I understand what you mean, I just prefer to be positive and not have my day ruined by having to think about unhappy things and seeing a bunch of overdone patriotism.

i was in grade 6 and got grounded that day for not doing my homework, it was the first week of school gimme a break
It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in
#38
I was 10 years old. We were sent home early from school because nobody knew when or what the terrorists would strike next. It was terror in every sense of the word. Damn it, I still get emotional seeing the images of those burning towers. I will never forget.
#39
I was in first grade, had no idea of the significance.

EDIT: Also, my friend for some reason thinks 20,000 people died, not 3,000

Let's try and keep the focus of the thread on the events of that day, and not turn it into a political debate.

I couldn't imagine the amount of devastation that day caused in many families lives.
