"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.

Every time we watch something about this… Every time we listen to something about this…

SO. SAD.

With just a few days to go before the tenth anniversary of the tragic September 11 attacks, new tapes have been released chronicling the military's reactions to 9/11 as well as air traffic control as they track the hijacked planes.

A bit of the black box audio from one of the planes is heard as well, including an order given by one of the hijackers.

Obama Planning To Visit Ground Zero On Thursday

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

We imagine this is going to be an extremely emotional, powerful moment for most Americans.

In the wake of Osama bin Laden's death early Monday, President Barack Obama will be visiting Ground Zero in lower Manhattan this Thursday, May 5th, to meet with the families of those the terrorist killed in the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon.

Hopefully this will serve as a comfort to all of those who have been living with the weight of that man's horrific acts on their shoulders for so many years.

We sincerely hope that this victory for the country will give them some peace of mind.

12-Year-Old Jeopardy Winner Gets Major Movie Role!

jeopardy winning kid gets lead role in movie

Congratulations, kid!

Jeopardy wiz kid Thomas Horn has been cast as the lead in director Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, based on Jonathan Safran Foer's novel.

Horn will star alongside Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, who will play the kid's parents.

As we reported back in August, the story revolves around an intellectual, nine-year old tambourine playing kid who searches for a lock to match a mysterious key that his father left behind after his death in the World Trade Center on September 11.

Should be inneresting to see how the kid does. If he's half as good at acting as he is at Jeopardy, we should be in for a great performance!

Thoughts???

The Generosity Of Strangers

Filed under: Charity

world trade center 9/11 tribute

An anonymous person donated $10,000 in cash to a 9/11 donation box at the World Trade Center Tuesday night.

Joe Daniels, president of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum said the money must have been slipped in sometime between 5p.m. and 7p.m. Tuesday evening.

There were 99 $100 bills and five 20s all very crisp, looking like they were just withdrawn from a bank.

Officials would love to know who this generous person is so they can thank them.

Wow, a mysterious good deed done!

Tom And Sandra To Work Together!

We definitely would love to hang out on set during this shoot!

Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock are slated to star alongside each another in an adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

The story revolves around an intellectual, nine-year old tambourine playing kid who searches for a lock to match a mysterious key that his father left behind after his death in the World Trade Center on September 11.

The boy’s parents will be played by Hanks and Bullock. Filmmakers are currently searching an actor to play the nine-year old boy.

Should be very inneresting to see how the Hanks/Bullock chemistry plays on-screen. We'll go in optimistically.

What do U think of the Hanks/Bullock combo?
