In my timezone, it's September the 11th. Beat y'all to the punch, eh?

So let's all just pay our respects to the innocent civilians who lost their lives in New York, the Pentagon, and wherever United 93 went down, as well as those who died in the subsequent bloodshed across the Middle-East.

Not forgetting all their families, as well as the brave emergency service fellas who tried to save lives on that day.

9 years on.

It's kind of amazing how time moves. 9 years already. Doesn't feel like that long ago.

I think at this point it's just beating a dead horse. We've paid our respects for long enough. It's time to move on.


Do you not do the moment of silence at 11 o'clock on the 11th of November anymore?

Indeed. Next year definitely won't feel like the ten year anniversary.

the difference is that soldiers fought for our country in the two world wars, whereas innocent civilians got murdered (essentially) on september 11th.

Wow. I was in... 6th or 7th grade at that point.

Fokin' 'ell, where has all the time gone?

I do agree, paying our respects is definitely done. Those who weren't directly affected by it should have moved on 7 years ago. We already "made up for it" as some would like to believe. Let's just move on.

You don't see us still mourning Kennedy's assassination, do you?

Besides, I hate dead horses. They stink.

I remember exactly where I sat at the moment my school announced what had happened, and I remember coming home that day with my friend Christine and we watched the news for close to 4 hours as they replayed the clip of the plane hitting the towers, I will never get that image out of my head.

Yes, lets pay respect to our country, whom our own government felt the need to set off bombs in the base of the towers and the pentagon. An event which increased Americans ignorance towards foreign nations tenfold.

I mean seriously, its time to stop mourning people you never knew that died ten years ago. My cat died last month, you gonna mourn her in ten years? Thought so. Get over it.

I didn't know anyone actually did that...

But we have Holocaust Memorial Day, so it's sort of alike.

I find it funny that 9 years later, there is still no "memorial" built. Even though after the whole thing they had thousands of plans and suggestions for a memorial.
ಠ_ಠ
#17
I hate you. I didn't want to laugh at that.


I remember think it wasn't a big deal. I didn't realize how many people died, I thought they could just rebuild the towers.


Does it annoy anyone else when someone says nine one one instead of nine eleven?


EDIT: They should make the Islam center thing a memorial. Whichever side is facing the site can be a giant memorial. Maybe that will shut people up.

Have you not been watching the news, they're building a super size Mosque at ground zero with a golden statue of Osama Bin Laden.

LETS BURN THE QUR'AN! RIGHT NOW! IGNORANCE IS FUN

On the other hand, yes, it doesn't seem like it's been that long. I remember exactly where I was.. I was pretty young at the time, though, so it's hard to have strong feelings about it.

It's amazing how nineteen insane men and two airplanes can change the world.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

Its amazing how no airliner fuel in existence can burn steel and cause a skyscraper to fall 100% like a controlled demolition. Americans are more gullible than sheep. Your ignorance caused a war which was supposed to end last week, yet there are still 50,000 soldiers there, fingering eachothers assholes or whatever soldiers do.


Even if it was cause by the taliban, you celebrating it is just boosting their ego. Eh guess they got what they wanted.
#28
We definitely need to get off our pedestal but I wouldn't say mass murder is something I'd recommend.


EDIT: Look up something called compression in this context. The temperature of the actual fuel burning means nothing. The temperature inside the plane itself matters. Oh and, CAN'T ESCAPE.

If conspiracy now means, "there is more evidence to disprove it like gods existence in which thousands of people even those who where there heard bombs go off at the base". Then yes, it is a "conspiracy".
#33
It really doesnt seem that long. I was in 4th grade when it happened. Damn! Time flies.


Does anyone in here actually have family that died in the attack? Just curious. Anyways my condolences. Tragic day.

Well one could say that the americans in 9/11 had more to offer the world, as they all had proper educations and such.
