    Hard to believe its been 8 years since the fall of the Twin Towers.

    I remember the moment I heard, as clear as if it was yesterday - thought I was hearing about a new "Action Film"....when the reality sank in that it was real, well, the feeling was sickening.

    My best friend lost her cousin in the second plane. Another best friend lost the father of her childrens school mates in the fields in Pennsylvania.

    My brother worked randomly in the Twin Towers when on business in NY. Thank GOD he was not there that day.

    There is almost not an American that knoew someone involved on that day. NYC is like the heartbeat of America.

    Here's to the thousands lost - their families - and may there memories out last the horrors and evil that men do. :(

    Guys - I never do this = but can I please ask that this not become a political debate/cinspiracy thread - which I think is nonsense anyway - but this is about remembering those lost, and those living who still, and always will suffer.

    Hope you understand my request - you are entitle to your opinion Ken, of course, but thats not what this was about.

    Thanks

    my thoughts go out to all who lost a loved one. My brother lives in the US and although the other side of the country my nan was so upset and worried that day, we had to show her a map to see that he was safe.

    My sister-in-law is from New York though, so upsetting.

    May we never forget x

    No worries M - I just didn't want this to turn into propaganda, as its really for people. There are some who believe the US Government organised the disaster as an excuse to go to war with Afghanistan - that they essentially killed their own people and blamed the Afghanistans, etc., etc., thats all. :rolleyes:

    I just wanted to nip it in the bud - on today of all days - it should just be about the people.

    I remember it like it was yesterday too. We kept the silence today for those lost and I have been sending out positive energy to all those affected in this time of grief for them.

    My partner is American. He's originally from LA but he happened to work in the Penthagon (he works for the US government) on 9/11. If it wasn't for all those people who stopped the 3rd plane smash into the Penthagon he could have not been here today :(
    R. I. P. everyone who lost their lives in that terrible tragedy.
