Thank you for posting your story Tibro.  It's nice to hear stories of people who live on the other side of the world.

I am going to post a few links about a guy I worked with.

He is a remarkable young man and what he went through that day you could not imagine.  One of the links has some photos of him after he made it down to the street.  He was very involved with the memorial.

9/11 is marked worldwide with reflection, prayers
By NICK PERRY - Associated Press | AP – 1 hr 38 mins ago

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A mother in Malaysia greeted her dead son. People in Manila left roses for the victim who helped give them homes. And mourners in Tokyo stood before a piece of steel from Ground Zero, remembering the 23 bank employees who never made it out alive.

A decade after 9/11, the day that changed so much for so many people, the world's leaders and citizens paused to reflect Sunday.

9/11: The 25 Most Powerful Photos
One decade after 9/11, an unsettling number of images from Ground Zero and its environs remain seared in our collective memory -- unsurprising, perhaps, given the scope and scale of the destruction. But the fact that the deadliest, most visually arresting attacks occurred in New York City also meant that many of the world's best photographers were, in effect, already on the scene when the terrorists struck. Here, to mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11, and in hopes of lending coherence to our shared, turbulent recollections, LIFE.com presents the 25 most stirring, visceral photographs from that day, featuring pictures from the likes of James Nachtwey, Joe Raedle, Spencer Platt, Mario Tama, and other celebrated photojournalists (and one intrepid amateur). These are the pictures we remember: wrenching, indelible photographs that tell the tale of a still-resonant late summer day that changed everything.

September 11, 2001 … Ten Years Later … We Remember the Terror Attacks on America & Our Heroes … WE WILL NEVER FORGET

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2011/09/11/september-11-2001-ten-years-later-we-remember-the-terror-attacks-on-america-we-will-never-forget/



It has been 10 years since that fateful September morning in 2001 when everything changed. A crystal blue September morning became a second day in American history that would live in infamy. As planes hit the towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, not once (VIDEO), but twice (VIDEO). A  third plane hit the Pentagon in Washington, DC and a fourth plane crashed into a field in Shanksville, PA … we all knew that it would never be the same

Following September 11, 2001 I can remember making business trips to NJ and just being in shock of looking out over the NYC skyline and just seeing an empty space where the Twin Towers once stood. I would make it a point to go visit friends in NY and NJ and when you drove to their communities, every where in parks and in areas along the River there was nothing but memorials for those lost and missing.

The pictures, flowers, stuffed animals were just endless.

I can't help but think back to those days and 9/11/01 today and just think how life has so changed. I think of those that were lost and the people that I knew personally. Those that escaped death by an act of God and who's lives have been so changed forever they live each day like it was the last, because it almost was.

GOD BLESS ALL WHO DIED AND ALL THOSE WHO WERE PERSONALLY TOUCHED BY THE EVENTS OF 9/11.

My husband and I were just discussing all the jet noise we're hearing over the southeastern US.  Our area is a training ground for AF out of Carolina.  We usually don't hear the jets on Sunday.  Today its been constant.  Those against the USA would be idiots to try something today.  It may've been 10 years, but the scars are still very fresh in the minds of most Americans.  God bless the USA!!!!

CBB, good video... I even cried. San, Angie, Tib...thank you for sharing. Conspiracy theories are born out of ignorance. It was all real...period. We will never forget. I watched 'Flight 93' again last night for possibly the 100th time. I had to add that.

Several years after 9-11 I went to Brooklyn to visit a friend. She asked me if I wanted to go to Manhattan. I said, no thanks...I'd rather remember it the way it was when I was there in the 70's. I spent time in both towers...I will never go back. I simply choose to remember it the way I saw it so many years ago.

Virginia: The Pentagon Memorial
September 11, 2011


The Pentagon

 ::snipping2::
 The Pentagon was the first of the three attack sites to open an official memorial. It was dedicated Sept. 11, 2008, and is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It sits at the exact spot where the attack occurred. The main feature is 184 cantilevered benches, each sitting atop a small reflecting pool. The benches are arranged by year of birth, reminding visitors that the attacks claimed lives both young and old, from 3-year-old Dana Falkenberg to 71-year-old- retired Navy Capt. John D. Yamnicky.

Lives lost remembered at Pentagon ceremony
September 11, 2011

There were 184 wreaths — one for every life lost when a plane hit the Pentagon 10 years ago — and stoically and solemnly military members laid them on benches inside the Pentagon Memorial.

The benches mark each life lost, and they served as the touching, silent focal point for the 1,600 people who watched nearby on a big-screen TV as the wreaths of white flowers were gently laid, one by one, in a patriotic ceremony at the Pentagon marking 10 years since the terrorist attacks.
With an enormous U.S. flag draped over the plane’s impact point on the Pentagon’s rock-hard wall, Vice President Joe Biden, his voice rising, remembered the attack as a “declaration of war by stateless actors bent on changing our way of life.” The goal: “To break us.”

“They did not,” he said, “know us.”

Instead, the attacks galvanized an entire “new generation of patriots — the 9/11 generation,” Biden said, noting that nearly 3 million men and women had signed up for armed-services duty since then “to finish a war begun here that day.”

George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview

Remembering 9/11 marks the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks with new perspective on the day that changed America and the world, as well as events set in motion over the last decade.

National Geographic Channel presents George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview, a world premiere documentary that reveals exclusive, first-person insight into the former president's experience following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the most in-depth on-camera interview he has ever given on the subject, President Bush recalls what he was thinking and feeling and what drove the real-time, life-or-death decisions he faced in the first minutes, hours and days after the most lethal terrorist attacks ever on U.S. soil.
