People world wide were effected by 9/11 - so its natural that we are all aware of the day and take stock and address how global terrorism has changed our outlook and world.

My thoughts are with US today, and for people who lost someone in 9/11 or the related attacks on other dates around the world.

Hope, it will never be forgotten.......

The memorials are the right thing to do. It gives tribute to those who died and helps those who survived.
People are still dying, however. 7 out of 10 first responders have developed lung disease or cancer as a result of being at ground zero, unprotected, for so long. The entire country, as survivors, must continue to be vocal to our government to do more to help these people, these americans.
Yes, a day of respect for the dead, it's the right thing to do. Please remember the first responders, too. That is also the right thing to do.

Thank you for this thread. The world was changed 5 years ago. We are all survivors.

Thank you Alix, this post is very thoughtful.

People are still losing loved ones. There has been death already, since 9/11 directly related to that day. 7 out of 10 first responders have contracted lung disease or cancer as a result of being at ground zero for so long, unprotected. We must do more for them and their families.

I believe we must remember the dead and help those still living.

Thank you again for such a thoughtful post.
