We Remember 9/11

It's poignant to think about the lives of the people who died during that day.

Ordinary people who just want to get the day over with and come home after work.

Many, perhaps, planned how they are going to spend the night: Having the long awaited first date or being able to be alone with the spouse or playing with the kids or simply having a good read after a tiring day.

But…all was an echo of a plan that never happened. Deafening silence that occupied the heart of those who was left behind.

It's funny to think that the papers and documents flying and littering across the streets during the attack, which was so important or classified hours before, seemed so worthless after. How a single event can change the importance of an item. Or the obsession of climbing the proverbial corporate ladder freezes after realizing how delicate the thread of one's own existence.

Yet, we remember those fathers and mothers who weren't able to come home.

To those children who were stripped from the love of a father or a mother.

And to those friends and families who are still mourning for their loss.

Yes! We remember

laki talaga ng effect ng 9/11 na yan, tagal na rin nakalipas pero di basta basta makakalimutan. i think may kinalaman din ito hanggang ngayon sa di pagkakasundo sundo ng ibat ibang bansa.

when i was studying architecture, I dreamth of being in that majestic building on the years to come. Not only becasue of it's dominance in the manhattan skyline but becasue of its architectural value. Now, this dream won't come true anymore.

But i'd give up that dream or any other dreams of luxury i have just to take back the lives of those who perished. They died for nothing. No cause can justify that kind of cruelty towards people, and mankind in general.

And to think, not one among those victims have an inkling of what was to be when they went to work that morning.

You know what? While I was still an HS sophomore when that tragedy happened, I was so uberly unconscious of what was happening at that time. The whole class was already noisily discussing about the 5W's and 1 H of that incident while I was dumbfounded to know about it 36 hours later. Jeez... I dunno what was running inside my mind.

It's a tragedy that has not only changed the American history, but the world as well. Lucky to know our relatives were not working in Pentagon anymore.

My bro-in-law who was on specialty fellowship (nuclear medicine) in a nearby hospital, told me they were all put (all hospital staff) on emergency duty and for 36 hours no one except a few, the slightly injured came in. He told me, all the victims had no chance at all. Now together with my sister, they both work in the area and always be the part of that fateful day-9/11.

it's just not the americans who were affected with it. everyone in the world.

and you're right. classified papers are of no importance after it. it's still our lives that value much

it's an ongoing battle between the u.s. and bin laden on whose side will the muslims take... many believed it was all conspiracy theory and that the u.s. will dominate the world... at some point, the ones who are affected by all these the most are the civilians who have spent their lives... maria reesa's feature last sunday was very enlightening...
