I was told today by the UK news that, next to Americans, the UK lost the most people to that abominable act of wanton violence. If it happened in any other country I'd still be racked with sadness this very day.

My heart goes out to all New Yorkers.

@The Big Yin: The attack on the Twin Towers was an attack on civilization itself. People from many nations--including Muslims--died from the attack. While New Yorkers feel it personally, the whole nation does as well. As one French newspaper headline put it, "We are all Americans now."

I am certain that on that September day there were angels among us, and I would imagine that they too wept…

I’m a big strong guy, but I am not the least bit bothered to tell you, I wept, from anger, from compassion, from a feeling of total helplessness, and yes, even fear, not fear for myself, but fear for my family and their immediate safety…

I was 1,500 miles from home that day and all I could think of was getting home to my wife and making sure my children were safe, and I couldn’t do that…

None of us knew what the future held, we still don’t, but I hope with all my heart that these same angels are with us now…

I can’t speak for all Americans, but I know that I am still hurting, every day that goes by I remember 9-11, and I don’t know if a *healing* will ever take place in me, but I pray for the lives of those affected in an even more direct fashion, I pray for our firefighters, police officer and our troops… I pray that ALL of America will wake up to the dangers around us and unite in an effort to defeat the evils that threaten our lives and freedoms.

No matter where that evil comes from!

I will NEVER forgive and I will NEVER forget!
