Did you see that very interesting documentary on Sat Night. I think it was on ch 1 and was about that photo with the body falling down the outside of one of the towers and the photographer's efforts to find out who it was Made us realise there is still so many stories to be told.

We had a friend there at the time, he was in one of the other buildings surrounding the towers.

He said he saw people falling all around him as they evacuated!

It must have been so bloody awful for them all.

I didn't see the show.

I'd just pick Mini-D up from school BD was home and he came out and said a friend had rang up to say the twins towers had been blown up and that our friend was there.

I wondered what he was on about, I'd never even heard of the twins towers!

At least I wasn't on the loo like I was when I heard about Diana!

Our son came and woke us up to tell us - he was in a job that had an early start and had put on the TV while getting ready - I was glued to the TV all day and have kept quite a file of newspaper clippings from the papers in the following days.

P.S also today marks the first anniversary of when we said goodbye to our beloved lab. Casey .:(:(

I was getting ready for work and my MIL rang and told me to turn on the telly. I was late for work that day and so was everyone else I worked with.

The TV coverage that has affected me the most was a documentary that was shown a while after the event with two guys who were doing a documentary on a NYFD unit and they got caught up in the rescue and also the collapse of the towers. I can't remember what it was called.

I know the one you mean, Louimay, it's just called '9/11', they were French brothers who got separated through it all, each thought the other had been killed. They were there doing a doco on the fire precinct team and just kept the cameras rolling, amazing stuff...

I am sure that tomorrow will be a day of reflection for many. (It is only September 10 for us.) I was making breakfast and packing lunches for my family when a friend told us to turn on the tv. We watched in horror as every tv station provided live coverage of the tragedy. In addition to the twin towers in flames, we were inundated with the additional images of the Pentagon attack and the crash of United Flight 93. When I thought things couldn't get any worse, the towers collapsed. Words fail me when I try to describe the horror of watching it. It was a dark time for our country.

Don't make me release the flying monkeys!

I don't sleep well and I have the ear phone thingy under my pillow. I woke up and they were talking about it. I turned on the telly and thought, well it is only a re run of The Towering Inferno, what's the big deal. THEN, I saw the second plane go in. Wow, I sat up all night and watched it for days after. I just could not believe what I had seen. It was horrible. That must have been after midnight sometime. I saw that programme the other night. It was called The Falling Man. They wanted to keep quiet about the ones that fell, jumped or were blown out and only published that photo the once.

I was working in London - my OH sent me an email saying about the first plane, didn't believe him until another friend also sent email, then went onto web to check it out, ended up on CNN watching the whole thing.... Went on all evening when I got home too, we just couldn't believe that such a huge operation had been orchestrated without the yanks knowing a thing!

My understanding was that they stopped using that footage for news etc out of respect for the families...some people were identifiable from the photos, must have been hideous for their families to see that on TV...

9/11 was my daughters 30 birthday. She was saying yesturday she feels like she lost something too. Ever 9/11 is so filled with sadness she feels guilty celebrating. Then she feels bad because losing the shine of her birthday is nothing to what so many others lost.
