"Although we can never un-see what happened here, we can also see that children who lost their parents have grown into young adults, grandchildren have been born and good works and public service have taken root to honor those we loved and lost."

- Mayor Michael Bloomberg, National September 11th Memorial ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center, Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, in New York.

The names of all 2,983 victims of the attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania have been etched in bronze into black stone surrounding two reflecting pools in the footprints of the Twin Towers.

May they never be forgotten.

    Pack of lies.

    Re: TORTEZ – Just for today, in remembrance of those who died and those who live with the pain of loss, shut up. That's all, just shut it.



  4. 4

    They all should be ashamed standing there knowing they knew what was going to happend.There all fraud……..we the citizens will remember those who were lost, not the murders who are standing there with there santan prayers.

    Re: Meggie246524 – Thank you!! Couldn't agree more.

    Re: ness11 – your spelling and your beliefs on this subject shows just how ignorant you are. Idiot.

    Here in Denmark, we remember those who died, as well those who's left in sorrow.



  9. 9

    Let's also have a minute of silence for the 107,152 civilians killed in Irak in a war built on lies. There were no WMD. None!

    Bush had NO PLACE BEING THERE!! His administration knew what was going to happen and they allowed it to boost his own political agenda and over all aproval rating. He was dying to be a war-time president and he got his wish in the most disgusting way ever… UGH Why is he not on trial for war crimes? This makes me sick..



  11. 11

    For me the feeling about this day is personal not political. It is the one day I won't judge someone's truthful reaction to death, fear and loss of innocence. I remember everyone I worked with having solid unity that day, intentions to love more, support and forgive, and appreciate family (we worked in the financial industry, in CT NY and Phila and watched together in a deserted city on a business trip). Then reality struck - real life started to kick in politics, corporate greed, spin and justification. When I hear never forget I try to remember that moment when we all saw our humanity before our agenda. Today I try to see the humanity in all of us… hopefully others can show and see it as well.

    Thank you Denmark. We welcome your prayers.

    It's a sad day for us, and watching even a few minutes, brings this nightmare all back.

    To think of people jumping out of skyscrapers, as the better alternative way to die, is just more than words can say.

    Re: luvs2tango – Loraine - that's the thought and the image that haunts me to this day…how bad it must have been up there.

    "What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. The atrocity should have been a unifying event, but instead it became a wedge issue. Fake heroes like Bernie Kerik, Rudy Giuliani, and, yes, George W. Bush raced to cash in on the horror. And then the attack was used to justify an unrelated war the neocons wanted to fight, for all the wrong reasons. A lot of other people behaved badly. How many of our professional pundits — people who should have understood very well what was happening — took the easy way out, turning a blind eye to the corruption and lending their support to the hijacking of the atrocity? The memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned; it has become an occasion for shame. And in its heart, the nation knows it." - Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman, writing for the New York Times.

    Even limiting myself to watching last night, to only 25 minutes of two men save 75 people above the 87the floor, I was struck how the divisive stuff we all do, categorizing people as Democrat - Republican, New Yorker - Texan, Liberal - Conservative, those labels were thrown away and only watched in horror and compassion for my "fellow American" dealing with this horrible event.

    Even the Poindexter's, the boston61's and AttFinch's posts, that are so inappropriate for today, don't make me want to retaliate.

    If I met any of them on a smoky stairwell, just doused in the explosion of jet fuel, I would try to help them and save them.

    We are all Americans for today and tomorrow.
    God bless us.

    Re: luvs2tango – Well, at least someone gets it. We are all Americans today and we were all Americans that day. Political parties don't exist on Sept 11th. That's how we can honor the victims of that day.

    Yes, any movie that comes on tv, and the Twin Towers comes on screen…
    In just a second, I go into a state of horror and rememberance, blink, pretend everything is fine, don't want to be a downer to what's happening.
    I brush away a tear. But, I come back to seeing Falling Man and the rest of our fellow Americans jumping for their last breath of fresh air.
    I decide to put those feelings on the back burner, otherwise, I'd be crying everyday.
    -
    It's still just as bad as it was ten years ago.
    -
    I have put up two large American flags, flanking my front door every day, since we've been in Texas, about 9 years.
    It looks like the front of an American Embassy, just w/o those two beautiful Marines standing guard to protect us.

    God bless America.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Well said. I wish more people believed that, especially today. Such a dishonor to post polticial diatribe on a day like today. May we never forget….



  24. 24

    Never forget&RIP.



  25. 25

    Republicans must apologize for the terrorist and devastating economic damage done to this country under their endlessly incompetent tenure. People DO NOT forget. And do not allow them to make it a day when we all take equal responsibility. If Gore was in office instead of Bush the Republicans would have impeached his ass. They have NO shame. They are pure evil.



  26. 26

    I can't imagine what the people of New York went through, or felt watching these towers crumble to the ground. As I look out in Toronto, I couldn't imagine the CN tower missing out of the sky, or collapsing into the subway, and stadium that lay below. We will never forget this tragedy that NYC endured.



  27. 27

    Re: boston61 – Sad, sad, sad that you can't honor the day and set aside the petty partisan crap, just for today. Shows your character and lack of respect. Say what you will…..this day is not about you and try as you might, it never will be no matter how hard you try. Go ahead……reply with more of the same, no one cares…….



  28. 28

    Re: boston61 – You poor misguided soul! Pure evil is only in the mind of those who condemn others for their beliefs, whether they be political(like yours), religious, racial, or by nationality or sexual orientation, ect. Today is for those who died at the hands of pure evil. At least be respectful!



  29. 29

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – oh i guess i just didn't "get it" as you said. so it's o.k. to be completely vulgar, hateful, and nasty to people 364 days a year (as you are, evidenced by your comments on this blog) but on Sept. 11th you choose to be nice, caring, and inclusive. how wonderful of you to think we are all americans but only for one day.
    *
    wow, you are even more hypocritical than i thought you were.

    Re: AttFinch – It is a shame that people fight for your freedom. Today is a day for heroes so i will just leave it at you are a souless joke. You should be ashamed that you are awarded the freedom to be so unamerican. You truely do represent the worst of the worst.



  31. 31

    Re: nicky45 – LOL!!! another of Perez's most hateful commenters trying to act like they actually have a soul/conscious because it's 9/11. all anyone has to do is look at any of your past comments to see the completely f*cked up person you really are. or i guess they could just wait until tomorrow when i'm sure you will back to your normal disgusting self.

    Re: nicky45 – Free speech isn't un-American, and they fight for that too. Your issue should rather be time and place and appropriateness of comment. Finch has an amazing brain, and all sides of an issue should always be examined…good or bad, even if the timing doesn't sit well with you.



  33. 33

    Re: AttFinch – Apparently, you didn't read what I wrote. Yes, Americans can be complete assholes to eachother every day of the year except Sept 11th. Why is that so hard to understand? I can't wait for you to copy n paste your reply…



  34. 34

    Re: truthgal – Thank you for your kind words :)



  35. 35

    Re: @v@ – Well said except change amaizing brain to completely idiotic and your spot on. I do agree with your sentiment

    Re: smart cookie 1

    Pure evil is the trillions os dollars that have been taken out of circulation and funneled out of this county by the Bush tax cuts.



  37. 37

    Will not comment on the jerks who are spewing their hate and politics on here….today is for the victims of those plane crashes….on board and on ground, and in buildings….never forget…always remember……never forgotten…Oregon LOVES NY!!!!!! and PA….and DC….

    Thank you, luvs2tango, well said. Today we should all be united.

    I find it REALLY tacky that you had to put your sites tag on the memorial like that. I don't care if you took the picture or not. That memorial isn't about YOU. Putting a watermark on something built to honor HEROES and people who were SLAUGHTERED is more than shameful its fucking SICK and you're a fucking asshole for it Perez.

    As for everyone making this political, go back and watch that video of Beyonce's song. Watch that little girl in pink crying for her relative. Consider for one GODDAMN MINUTE that this politics could be set aside for the grief of the world once a while. In the name of all that is Holy, step off your high horses and realize that people are HEARTBROKEN and this day is for THEM not you and your damn politics!

    Respectfully remembering that day and all the lives lost from selfish terrorists that cared more about money and political gain than human lives and love …. and I see the biggest one of all having the audacity to stand there and show his face to the world and pretend he's on this side of it….disgusting. RIP all those lost. Just because we know the truth doesn't make it less of a tragedy, it makes it more of one. Anger is a reaction to RIGHTS being stripped away from your people in the US, and it doesn't make what happened any less, it should make what happened be more. Read a fucking book outside of the garbage your most convenient media gives you and open your eyes to what really happened that day. A terrible tragedy. Ignorance will only enable.

    911 WAS AN INSIDE JOB and these 4 liars know it.

    Re: penny1206 – Hate to destroy the fantasy paradigm you've created for yourself but I hope you know evil does exist, there are people on this planet that hate humanity and enjoy destruction and death, sooner or later you're gonna have to step out of your comfort zone and face reality.



  44. 44

    Re: nicky45 – I hear people say we're fighting for freedom? please explain how we're fighting for freedom? it's more like we're losing our freedom. we already fought for our freedom in 1776 from our GOVERNMENT at the time, the tyrannical red coats, the crown… we're in 2 declared wars to secure resources for banks , corporations and share holders and the members of the Federal Reserve, it has nothing to do with preserving freedom or whatever other line government controlled and funded mainstream media perpetuates.

    Re: boston61 – If Gore was president this would never have happened!



  46. 46

    I agree with the people that have posted asking for respect. Please, many innocent people died on this day 10 years ago. Remember those who've died instead of pointing fingers, at least on this posting. We may never know exactly went on that day. Don't fight with each other on this forum. Peace cannot come from hate or blame. The Iraq War is proof of that.

    The real heroes are those that went into those towers knowing full well they could die, the fire fighters, the police forces, the rescue teams. And Flight 93, the brave people who prevented more loss of life, even at the expense of their own. Also to the survivors who have kept going, even with their loved ones gone.

    Please keep your posts respectful.

    bush is a peice of shit he should be home with daddy counting the dollars made each day from the war .. what a hypocrital aszhole…eff off idiot..



  48. 48

    Re: SteveIsHot – Maybe you can get Gore to quit his night manager job at Dennys and run for president. He needs something more to do than watch old video of the 2000 election returns! Bush had every right to be there and was an amazing speaker compared to the tela-prompt reading Obama.



  49. 49

    Re: luvs2tango – Oh, when you said "But, I come back to seeing Falling Man and the rest of our fellow Americans jumping for their last breath of fresh air." It so sums it up, so very unbelievably sad. I watch the specials every 9/11, it is the least I can do to remember all of those who's lives were taken (including Canadians). I am a very proud Canadian and can tell you we all mourn with you. For those wanting to make political statements, please leave it for another day, keep this one sacred, just this one.



  50. 50

    You people are UNBELIEVABLE!
    1. As for Bush knowing the attacks were going to happen- This might be true, But do you know how many threats the president, including Obama, get on our country each day? How is one to know which is real and which are not? How much money and man power can be supplied to prevent EACH one of them. This tragic day isn't the first where a president has not believed in a threat… Check out December 7, 1941.

    and 2. WE ARE REMEMBERING THE INNOCENT LIVES LOST.. NOT THE POLITICS BEHIND IT.
