Also the Word tells us in Psalms that Godliness exalts(lifts up) any nation, but sin is a reproach(shame and disgrace, to look down upon) to it's people. As the USA leaders have moved from Christianity to human secularism the other nations have begun hating us! That's why we where bombed. They hate Christ but they hate the Godless America even more! We must stand for righteousness(what God calls right)!

While I agree that we see through a tinted distorted lens. The new testament also says we can know all things that pertain to life...... and Godliness. We just have to seek Him.

On that day, I cried for Manhattan, a place I have never known For the people, for the destruction, and for the heroes they took away Today I am crying for a different place, for a world torn apart by war Do we stand and watch, only images to our eyes, or do we stand together, Like the men and women who walked, arm and arm, straight into The burning hell Twelve years ago I cried for Manhattan My heart is crying still ~des13~

I remember that I was at school in PS 153 - Helen Keller School, in third grade. I found out from Lucille Bruno and Margaret Matonti (my two teachers) that we would have to leave early. It made me wonder "What on earth is going on?" As it turns out, Kevin Cabe (one of my classmates at that time) only left early, leaving me with another question: "What happened to his parents?" Thank goodness my school bus was able to come quite early, and whisked me home after making some stops. When I did not see the rest of my friends which I would normally see, I did not know what to expect. When I saw my father waiting for me in front of our apartment building that we have lived in (since 94), it made me relieved my father was not working very close to the Towers. I could not go to school the next day, and I came late to school the day after that. He took me inside, pressed the elevator button, pressed the floor that we were going to, and opened the door to our apartment which we also lived in since 94. I did not look outside from my kitchen window to see what on earth was happening south of the Empire State Building. Shows like Talk Back Live (that was one show my mother used to tune in to at that time) did not air at all, while News 12 The Bronx only talked about the horrors of the World Trade Center, rather than the issues facing the Bronx. There were some other channels (like News 12 Traffic and Weather, originally on channel 15) that talked the same story. It made me realize what they were talking about on the news channels: the World Trade Center was literally gone, and I had longed to see how awesome Lower Manhattan was prior to that. I could not really grasp what the impact was from the incident until I first got on the 1 train in Utica Avenue (rather than the 3), passed by the Cortlandt Street stop on the 1 train only about a decade after it happened, saw the American flag later pasted on every train and bus, and saw the area south of Borough of Manhattan Community College (where I attend college). I later saw a plaque hooked up close to the main entrance the first day I entered (and it was on a Sunday, when I went to take an assessment test). It had slowly started to change me, and I am glad that after all the bickering over what to do about the site, they are moving forward to finish rebuilding. I recently got off the 1 train at 231st Street earlier yesterday, and I saw that the conductor of that train put her bag on the hook, covering the last area (and it was a small area) where we could see how many miles her partner is driving the train. This went to tell me that it is possible that even after what happened to the 1 train twelve years back, she is still concerned about her safety. I am also glad that I still have my family here. As Lovato says from her song: "Just go on and try to tear me down. I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper". However, I feel for the victims of the horrible tragedy that shook not only our greatest city on earth, but the world also. I hope that we may be able to love all people, in spite of what they did.

Bonnie Clark, I do not really know what to say. I hope that you may find some piece. This could be the first comment I came across that actually mentioned one of the scores of people that lost their lives that day. I hope that you will find some comfort.

Not too difficult to see why 9-11 happened. Satan worked his Evil through a Fake 'religion' that preaches Death to all non-muslums. And Stealth Jihad continues to work its Evil from muslums in the White House and throughout the USA! =(

Beautifully done..Very moving..Thank you. We must never forget...We must never stop praying for a revival for our homeland...God BLESS the USA and YOU.

Kimberley Wamsley Ridgeway, Your analysis is correct. And I agree with you. I hope though, that the events of 9/11 will always remind us the truth of Psalm 127:1 " Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

I wrote this at the 10th anniversary of 911-no more unity in the country or church and regardless of what people want to say NYC is not as good as it used to be on any level especially spiritually. I was a crisis counselor for the Billy Graham association. We have heaven to look forward to. As we approach the 10th anniversary ,my thoughts turn to 911 and my memory as I was home in NYC and had some personal loss. It was a beautiful sunny day. Not a cloud in the sky. I also remember the city of NY asking me to help care for children who were spared at a Day Care Center who lost one parent ,other parents could not get into the city to get them as bridges and tunnels were all closed. Those children are all in their teens or late teens now. Sad memories. As I reflect on Sept 11th, I remember when it first happened I felt numb then I remembered my pastors voice, prophesying of these events. ( Pastor David Wilkerson) I went to TSC which he founded starting it's opening and it was not just one prophecy he closed down the church for prayer only for 2 weeks before, canceled all of the events until after 911. The church was in prayer and I was ready. I also heard friends of mine who worked in the WTC say they felt something would happen they wanted to get a new job. One of them was George Merino. He died in the WTC only 2 weeks after he had a dream of this happening. George did not attend TSC ,my point is that people involved knew on some level or were prepared. George made peace with God. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1310994/The-9-11-victims-foresaw-deaths-New-book-claims-victims-premonitions-atrocity.html As we approach the 10th anniversary of Sept 11th I remember the phones were down in NYC, the streets were empty, instead of the constant noise it was eerily silent the only planes in the sky were US fighter jets. To this day if I see a plane flying to low in NYC or if it seems too quiet it feels wrong to me reminds me too much of that day. I remember only one restaurant that we could find open one of my favorites Tatany 52 on East 52cnd street. It was filled with Japanese businessman who were stuck in NYC due to the no fly order by the President. Unfortunatley that restaurant closed. It was an authentoc Tokyo style Japanese restaurant without the Tokyo prices. Here is a video of 2 weeks after the attacks mostly Union Square but other areas in lower Manhattan too. (Lower Manhattan is what New Yorkers call it, outsiders call it down town.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAM-0OjOsKc What was scary sounding also was the fire fighters whistles going off knowing they were lost. That sound will never leave those who were here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rescue_and_recovery_effort_after_the_September_11_attacks One thing that strikes me that many did not know about is the rescue dogs were depressed because there were too many smells of death and not many rescues. So they had to simulate rescues to cheer the dogs up. Most of those dogs died due to the toxic air breathed in. I don't think there are any alive now. http://thoughtsfurpaws.com/dogs/911-rescue-dogs/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e1mlwZYbyw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvP6WwEafjA KC and I lost some loved ones (who knew ahead of time they would die) many victims of Sept 11th had dreams and knew something like this would happen.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1310994/The-9-11-victims-foresaw-deaths-New-book-claims-victims-premonitions-atrocity.html As a New Yorker who was here relfecting on 911 I remember my husband and I could not contact each other the phones were down. I don't drive and public transportation was down too. I knew my husband would be walking home in the smoke filled skies and he has asthma. I was concerned that he would not be able to breathe or make it home. Plus we did not know what the end of the attatcks would be. I knew it was an attack intuitivley and did not know if the entire city would be gone by the end of the day and if we would survive that day. I ended up being a crisis counselor during the first year until the counseling office closed. We did not get many people to counsel. The center assumed it was because many in the city have PTSD which means there is a delayed response to trauma. It was through the Billy Graham association trained by SCOPE ministries the same organization who handled the Oklahoma bombing. I personally was able to hopefully help mostly fire fighters and policemen and EMS workers. KC was a volunteer at Ground Zero and now has WTC lung. The air in NYC seems so much worse than before 911. 19 people died from the heat this summer. http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/31/summer-heat-caused-19-deaths-city-says/ Before 911 NYC air was rated some of the cleanest in the nation for big cities. http://www.examiner.com/civil-rights-in-jersey-city/feds-refuse-to-pay-cancer-costs-for-9-11-responders-after-wtc-air-cover-up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_effects_arising_from_the_September_11_attacks The toxic dust filled the air for about 6 months and also filled many apartments in NYC even those no where near the WTC. Anyone could see the smoke and dust as far away as NJ for months. Many of us had to hire professional cleaners to clean the "dust". After 911 many authentic ethnic restaurants closed and chain restaurants and stores opened up. NYC has not been the same since. In my opinion NYC has lost some of it's character since 911. Many NY and NJ residents including family and friends lost their lives on 911. Many NY and NJ families are still suffering loss of one kind or another and people are still dying due to 911 sickness 10 years later. Many policeman, fireman, EMT workers, civilian citizens flight attendants and flight crews lost their lives on 911. Here is an article on 911 statistics and how the affect New Yorkers. http://nymag.com /news/articles/wtc/1year/ numbers.htm Only 289 bodies were found in tact our of the huge number that died. During the earth quake of 2011 in August, most New Yorkers thought it was another terror attack. An earth quake would never cross the mind of a New Yorker since we don't usually get earth quakes. The West coast was making fun of us but they did not understand the reason New Yorkers were shook up. It is because New Yorkers only frame of reference for the ground shaking and City Hall being evacuated is 911. Plus the phones were also down during the earth quake. No matter how much rebuilding is done, you can never bring back the thousands who lost their lives or undo the damage that was done to untold families. Here are some historical facts about 911 that include DC. http://www.history.com/topics/9-11-attacks I have many personal momentous from 911 I am not a pack rat but I saved things from that day and papers and magazines and special T shirts from after the event as well. We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it in full. -Marcel Proust

Islam *is* evil. Anything, everything, and anyone who promotes that which is contrary to whom and what the God of the Bible is, is evil. Islam worships a god named Allah. Allah is *not* the true God of the Bible, and this false god and false religion is a lie straight out of Hell. Therefore, it is, by definition, evil. Thus, those who worship false gods are doing evil in the sight of God (which is mentioned over and over and over and over again in the Bible), and doing evil equates to being evil.

Thank you for sharing your experience. For all of us whom lost someone, our lives are forever changed. No amount of time can erase our loss. I also recognize that we ALL lost "something." For myself and my family, it was my Jonathan. It was also a lost of tolerance of those who lightly use Christian cliches to ease their own discomfort in the face of an unknowable reason of "why." It was also a sense of sadness for all the times I heard of know of times when folks refer to 9/11 as a "wake up call." Other countries face this and NUMEROUS other losses regularly, and we have had a false sense of "righteousness," believing it was horrible that war came HERE. Of course, it IS. But, it is horrible for ALL countries. God HAS blessed us, but, we have treated that blessing lightly, and taken it for granted, and become a complaining country...no different than when God's people were escaping from Egypt. It seems we only REALLY see His blessing, when we feel we have lost something. THAT is the tragedy...that God must allow sin, in order for us to perceive our need for Him. We would not marry a spouse who brought us pain, in order to accept their love. Why do we do that with God? My prayer is that in ALL our losses, that we see the greatness of God, even as we struggle. (I struggle greatly to see God's love for me right now, but, I HOPE He is still holding me, even when I don't feel it).

Thank you for this simple, yet, touching video. Thank you for not forgetting those of us who live that loss every day. My daughter was not yet born, and my son was 3, when my Jonathan died. Here is a video I compiled to share with a few friends to remember that day, and to acknowledge that, even in the pain, our lives DO go on. http://youtu.be/pX8Pe7GLmhg

How does this comment have four likes? Islam itself isn't evil; jihadists are a vast minority of Muslims. Besides, we are called to love our enemies, and while I'm not saying that Muslims are our enemies, you certainly seem to be saying so. And as such, we should love them all the more.

So many died because of a inhumane greed of money and power by a bunch of richiest american folks. They dont give a shit if anybody dies- its only the profit they care of. Djihad is their's idea and invention, a fake boogie-man made up to influence and terrorize the masses, so they can grab everything even more tight. They are true terrorists of this disaster, and this video rightfully says that many are still angry, so I hope that one day american people will stop being a dumb, deceiveable sheep(no offence, many european nations are made likewise now) and will pay back those monsters what they deserve. I know that revenge is in the hands of Christ, but somethings gonna happen anyway.
