I remember seeing this video last year. There is no healing here, but the sounds from the window and the view of how the dust and debris spread out after the collapse are incredible.

Sun Microsystems also had its metro New York offices on the 25th and 26th floors of the south tower (the second one hit). Everyone started evacuating the office after the north tower was hit.

The beginning was so surreal. The window is closed and all that can be heard is the nursery rhyme and the heartbeat, along with some of the lady’s comments, not really knowing yet the magnitude of what’s happening.

I put on the soundtrack to “Schindler’s List” while I watched it, and it brought me to tears.

Tears of sorrow. To hear the young woman sobbing as the first tower collapsed was just heartrending to hear.

Tears of anger. Every son of a bitch who ever had a single thought of support for this heinous act should be hunted down.

It made me think of this song (especially the stanza after the first chorus):

“Have You Forgotten?”

I hear people saying we don’t need this war
I say there’s some things worth fighting for
What about our freedom and this piece of ground?
We didn’t get to keep ‘em by backing down
They say we don’t realize the mess we’re getting in
Before you start preaching
Let me ask you this my friend

CHORUS 1
Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside
Going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it’s too disturbing for you and me
It’ll just breed anger that’s what the experts say
If it was up to me I’d show it every day
Some say this country’s just out looking for a fight
After 9/11 man I’d have to say that’s right

CHORUS 1
Have you forgotten how it felt that day
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside
Going through a living hell
And you say we shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

I’ve been there with the soldiers
Who’ve gone away to war
And you can bet they remember
Just what they’re fighting for

CHORUS 2
Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost
And those left to carry on
Don’t you tell me not to worry about Bin Laden
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?
Have you forgotten?

Surreal, to hear the children’s songs playing in the background as this begins to unfold...America lost her innocence that horrible Tuesday morning. :*( The woman who was filming had almost the same identical reactions I did, just watching brought back all those feelings of shock and helplessness and incredulity...

Thanks for the reminder. I will NEVER forget, and I’ll make sure others don’t either. America can’t afford to forget. If she does, EVIL wins. :*(

"WHy is the “LooseCHange” douchebag even being given air time?????? These nutters are making me ill......"

Silverstein (owner of the WTC buildings) stated that Building 7 was a controlled demolition. He's on tape saying that it was the fire department's decision to 'pull' the building. I'd guess that's what started all this conspiracy stuff.

In demolition parlance, 'pull' refers to a controlled demolition, according to the demolition experts interviewed.

I’m watching it now, 9-11, Pacific Time. I can’t tell who’s narrating it. It almost sounds like Keith Olbermann.

I'm with you doc. I knew this guy on American Flight 11:

David Kovalcin

As far as I am concerned...we owe it to those people to keep this in the forefront of our thoughts. We owe it to them. We must live every day like it is September 12th, until this scourge of terrorism is made as taboo as cannibalism.

We were in Germany when this happened and it was awful being so far from home during the next week. The military bases went immediately to “delta” and everything locked down tight as you can imagine. I had nothing to do but sit for the next few days and watch this- wall to wall, 24/7. I sat there, hunched over and sobbing and feeling the most terrible anger I had ever experienced.

I hope we NEVER forget how we felt, because if the cretins have their way we just might experience this again.

I’ve only caught part of this doc on the History channel, but so far it seems pretty good — it does show the nutters but it seems to take care to refute every one of their idiotic points, so far as I have seen. It gives good prominence to the guy from Popular Mechanics and others who have refuted the nutters.

Amazing piece of historical footage. It returns all the amazement and outrage of those early hours, when the realization of what was happening is almost surreal.

This country must never forget that it was attacked in this manner by these montrous barbarians, and the heirs to their heinous ideologies must continue to be brought to account.

Thank you, I lost but a cousin, many lost husbands, wives, brothers and beloved fellow workers. Mine is but a small lose in the scheme of things. Evan though the smallest of losses were great to someone, and he was like a brother to me.

I have in my office a photo taken from the Jersey side of the river. It has the intact Twin Towers and an American flag on the Jersey side. The shot is taken from perspective so it looks like the flag is towering over WTC.

That sounds great! Where can I get one of those photo's?

The nutters will tell you that the glass that surrounds the water is being held together by the water inside the glass...

How else could it keep from falling all over the table?

It’s a nutter thing.

Lester Holt is the narrator

Good heavens, I wish someone could beat some sense into these nutters — I am so tired of watching their smug, arrogant, complacent faces as they babble about things they know nothing about.

Thank you for your input, This should be shown to all the 535 members of congress every night before they lay their fat little heads on their pillows. Every secretary of the armed services and to all the members of the Joint Chiefs before they lay their little heads on their pillows. I want them all to wake up every morning thanking God for their freedoms and asking God Almighty what can I do today to get the cowards that caused the WTC to fall.And not let up until the are DEAD!!

Building 7 was a controlled demolition

it takes weeks to place demolitions to bring a building down not minutes...

Yes, one thing that has been nauseating has been how soon the Demagogues (and even too many of the RINOs) began to lose sight of these horrible events — we have had the horrid spectacle of opportunistic pols focusing more upon their own careers and conveniences than upon what is needed for ALL of us and for the memories of those we lost. We should continually emphasize VICTORY in the war against Islamo-fascist terrorists and their supporters; instead, we have so much garbage and nonsense going on all around us.

I couldn’t find any reference on the website either. I’m taping it. Maybe they’ll show the narrator’s name in the credits. I’ll let you know.
