I saved a short video of a woman waving on 9/11. She was peering through the tear in one of the buildings and desperately waving, trying to get help.

Sheet of glass. Sheet of glass. That will be the only solution.

Is this the same documentary that was shown on Fox (I think) yesterday? I watched it but did not start at the very beginning so I am not certain it was called The Falling Man. It was very emotional and I saw things that I didn’t remember from earlier news casts. I also watched the movie Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close (Maybe I have the title mixed up). I cried most of the way through the movie even though I had seen it before.

2012 is an important year to remember 9/11 because our younger generations are the most in danger of forgetting what really happened.

Or worse, our younger generations are susceptible to getting a politically correct view of 9/11. Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a “day of national service” or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values.

Watch this moving tribute to the heroes of 9/11
composed by a man who lived through it:
(music by Enya)

It is the most viewed video of all,
and is now in the Smithsonian.

I visited the observation deck of the WTC twice.It actually had two decks...an open one literally on the roof and the other was on the highest enclosed floor.I visited each one once...they closed down the roof section under certain weather conditions.The roof,in particular,was amazing!

It is a good one,isn't it! But fairness demands that I reveal that I didn't think of it...I borrowed it from another Freeper (can't recall which one),with his/her permission,of course!

I have seen this video tribute 20 plus times and each time the tears well up like it was yesterday. How and why have we lost our drive and determination as a nation to complete the task of exacting the revenge that was so justified by these cowardly actions? It further saddens my heart.

Nope,never did.I had certainly heard of it but both my visits to the WTC lasted no more than an hour.It must have been a pretty impressive place,daytime or nightime.sadly,it appears that "The Falling Man" was an employee of that very establishment.

That's an easy one...it's because the Rat Party,representing a substantial portion of our population, agrees with Bin Laden & Friends that "we had it coming".

If we were really serious about revenge Saudi Arabia would have been glassed over by sundown on 9/11. I hate Islam and Muslims with a fury I can’t begin to describe.

These are images the left covers up. They don't want people to remember that it was an attack. It was horrible. I hope and pray we "Never Forget".

I'm saying extra prayers for our country this 9/11. It's been 11 years since the attacks, and they originally happened on a Tuesday.

Nothing to be sad about. There really is evil in this world, true evil, like Nazism was. Unfortunately in the intervening 70 years since the end of WW2 the world hasn't been confronted with such an evil and years of political correctness and an unwillingness to name Islam for the evil it is has left many to see a blank spot, as it were, when anyone who takes even a cursory study of what Islam really is and it's history would know, SHOULD know it for the evil it is.

I just looked at the email I sent to Rush, and I said I had heard it on the radio. It was likely the Hugh Hewitt show, but I think there was a substitute host that day. I can't really remember. It doesn't matter. It's clever and true!

And by 9/12/01 all non-citizen Muslims would have been arrested under deportation orders, and all citizen Muslims put under surveillance.

Well stated My sadness is merely the realization of that evil and how it clouds my views and attitudes towards those that wish to harm me my family and my fellow Americans.
