September 11
« on: September 11, 2011, 09:49:55 am »
Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the US Pentagon.  :'(
On the Today Show, they are having a "special" on the memorial service that is going on. Yo-yo ma played a little while ago, and James Taylor just finished singing. If you go on google, they have a tribute as well. Apparently they helped set up a memorial website.

I guess I'm just posting this to remind people, please, just take a moment, and say a prayer (to a god of your choice), for all those who are grieving still today.

There should be more posts here! I was 6 at the time the attack happened and can only just remember, in the years past well i have watched documentaries about the stuff. 9/11 was a very unique disaster, unlike any flood, earthquake, avalanche etc.

i woke up to the television blaring and my father calling people that day. it's still one of my most vivid memories.
anyone who still cares about this should read Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Very sad event. Also, today marks the 10 anniversary of the less well known WTC building 7 collapse on 9/12.

Even if the 9/11 was a disaster, it still showed something else.
It showed the dam terrorist group Al quaida (?) that the death of 3000 encouraged over 3,000,000 people to join the army.
It also showed that punching a still beehive was not a good idea, and I heard that they're building another building that's taller than the last one.  ;)

Couldn't we change the name 'ground zero' into 'ground phoenix'? (since the major said he didnt really like 'ground zero' and a phoenix rises from its own ashes)

"Nulla dies umquam memori vos eximet aevo."  -Aeneid

"No day shall erase you from the memory of time"

The motto is great, but as New York Times pointed out, it is misused.  It shouldn't matter that much though, I don't see why it's getting so much media attention.

9/11 was a day that will live in infamy, as Roosevelt said in 1941 about another fateful day in American history. This time, however, the first American blood had been shed in an attack on the soil of the continental US. We survived WWII, we should be able to live through this.
