As part of the Projects' Gallery, I will put out articles about Holidays, Events or Awareness. I cover as many aspects as possible in my monthly blog, but sometimes I do an additional article when merited.

Ten-years ago there was an attack in the Unites States, that did not only affect Americans, but many countries whose citizens were killed or injured that day. More than ninety countries lost citizens to the attacks, as well as in subsequent years, as related illnesses took their toll.

On September 11, 2001, the attacks resulted in 2,996 deaths, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The hijackers didn't take into consideration just whom they were killing, just that they intended to kill after being brainwashed by a very sick man. That type of hatred knows no boundaries. It staggers the imagination to think how it is possible to hate so very much.

Now it is time to concentrate on Healing and Remembrance ~ it isn't about blame but true healing. We are all citizens of the same planet. Hopefully, one day, everyone will realize that fact.

I'm glad to see that someone made the time to create this article :nod: I was afraid I was one of a very few who had done something commemorating 9/11, and that no one would see my contribution or care :(
I also loved the way you went about this article, pointing out that this was an international issue, not just one for America. It was a catastrophic event, worthy of remembrance just as any other loss of life is (wherever it may be).

Why am I seeing haters commenting on this? Guys, this is a serious article that people are clicking on because they /care/. Some of ya'll aren't American and I understand where you're coming from but this hurt everybody around the globe; even if a country didn't loose a citizen due to the attacks, terrorism has affected every country.

If you're going to just go spurt off something that goes in the opposite direction of the article, then do it on your blog or something, not here. People who care don't want to see it.

Regarding this article, it was brilliantly laid out. ;u;

We should remember it but we also need to move on, dwelling on the past too much can cause us to cease altogether I dont mean to be insensitive but...

It is never good to dwell too much on the past. I watched a special on TV, since it showcased the tenth anniversary, and it illustrated how people were coping from loss, but also from illnesses caused from the polluted air after the collapse. Many people have passed from various illnesses caused from that day, people that aren't counted in the original loss. As Projects' CV, part of what I do are remembrances and memorials, to honor those who gave their lives for the greater picture. The TV News Special, also showed the park that was built at Ground Zero, as well as how the construction is going along. Hopefully, construction will be completed in five-years.

I found the media memorial to be very tasteful. The coverage I saw actually covered the park that was created and showed how the construction is coming along. A positive point-of-view to show the city moving forward.

That was incredibly insensitive of you. Sure, it happened ten years ago, but a lot of people died or lost loved ones in the attacks. Not only that, but it's affected thousands of people around the world, and still is. Healing takes time, let us remember it how we want to. If you are sick of seeing it, don't click on things that might relate to it.

kind of hard when pretty much everything relates to it right now.

and i want you to keep one thing in mind, if you lost someone in that attack would you constantly want to see it on the news,radio and internet at this time every year? no. Besides, it happened in the past, you learn from it and you move on so excuse me for being frank but it should be left alone so that people can move on with their lives

I do hope one day spirits can heal and move on with their lives. Such tragedy :rose:

:hug: How sad people would joke about such a tragedy. The ramifications continue. People were exposed to the pollution from the collapse and many got sick. Some died from those illnesses. The reconstruction seems to be on track. I saw the parks at Ground Zero on a TV Special and a time-lapse film on the construction. Hopefully, the construction will be completely in the next five-years.

R.I.P. to the 2,976 American people that lost their lives on 9/11 and R.I.P. to the 48,644 Afghan and 1,690,903 Iraqi people that paid the ultimate price for a crime they did not commit. Oh and the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who experience this everyday. Your 9/11 is their 24/7.

I commented in return that on 9 11 nearly 3000 people died from more than 90 different countries, the loss was not America's alone. The article was meant to pay homage to every citizen of every country who lost loved ones, have loved ones injured and who had to deal with the ramifications of the attack. Any death from any conflict is a sad loss :sadangel:

The 2,976 deaths on 9/11, which I mention in the brief article, included over 90 countries who had citizens pass away that day. There were not all Americans. I did include a link to Wikipedia that lists each and every country that lost people that day.

Thank you for your comment.

Very sad indeed. The Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor when the US was not a part of the world conflict. Sadly, after many suicide planes attacked US warships, the Japanese government refused to back down. It took two bombs for the government to make peace. It was not a choice taken lightly, it was done in the time of war to avoid future conflict and loss. Today, Japan is our staunchest ally.

Whenever there is loss from conflict it is a sad day for the world. John Lennon once said "Give Peace a Chance". I fear I'll never live long enough to see a peaceful world.

We will always remember.

I was in my 4th grade classroom watching jets go by and wondering what was happening and why the teachers were all keeping us away from the TVs and computers, then the principal came on the intercom and announced what had happened (told us a plane had hit the WTC).

Proud to say I was the only kid in the class who didn't immediately freak out, start bawling like a baby, or go brain dead...I did the next day when I saw the news footage though...I'll never forget the video of the second plan slamming into the South Tower....I haven't watched it since that day and I still remember it clear as day 10 years later...

My 4th grade teacher told us "Just so you don't say I didn't tell you anything later, a plane ran into a building". Then we went back to math. I thought a plane had rolled off the runway and hit the airport :doh:
It wasn't until I got home that I say the videos. It was so surreal.

I still wonder what the principal was thinking, announcing it to a whole K-8 school when some of the kids parents or relatives COULD WELL HAVE BEEN KILLED (my friend's parents had a seriously close call...they were supposed to be on flight 77)

I really wish that the principal or our teacher had talked about it. If my mother hadn't taken the time to explain it to me, I probably wouldn't ever have understood what was happening :O_o: It was a historic moment (albeit a tragic one) and they missed making a positive impact on us kids. :shrug:

Just like I remember what I was doing and what I was wearing the day I was in school and the announcement came over the intercom that President Kennedy had been shot. That was November 22, 1963 and I remember it like it was yesterday.

I was watching the news that morning on 9/11 and when the first plane hit I called my husband to tell him there had been a terrible accident in NY. When the second plane struck, I knew then it wasn't an accident. :sadangel:

My mom remembers where she was when news of the Cuban Missile Crisis hit, I did some digging and found out that we've never been at a higher alert level in the history of the country as then. Strategic Air Command went to DEFCON 2 with everyone else at DEFCON 3.

We were at DEFCON 3 on 9/11 as well as FPCON Delta.

I did a lot of research yesterday lol

Research is good, because you find out information for yourself. My brother was on the naval carrier and was one of the four midshipmen to welcome President Kennedy aboard after the crises. It was a very frightening time indeed.
