    Regardless of nationality, religious beliefs, or age, tragedy can and will strike anywhere. These people were cut tragically short before their time. Do whatever you wish. A few words or a prayer or two. It matters not who you are, where you come from, or what you believe in. I would humbly ask the people of GBAtemp to take a moment of silence for these poor souls and those of the brave people who died doing their best to relieve their pain.

    Thanks man. Remembering such a tragedy is the least we can do for the lost and the brave. The scars will always be there, but for any tragedy, it's respectful to remember those who sacrificed their lives or died needlessly.

    I just had to do a report on this Today at school, and I couldn't even do it because I kept thinking how they felt when they were in this situation it just made me mad thinking about it, and plus doing this, but I didn't even do it because I couldn't even pick up the pen because I was so sad and mad... R.I.P Fallen comrades My prayers go out to your family. :sad:

    I remember walking around town earlier today, when I looked at my watch and saw "TU 9-11." For the next few minutes I was just awkwardly standing there thinking about how this was the first time all day I had thought about what happened 11 years ago. Even if it's not much, the least we can do is take a moment to remember.

    Lost my uncle during 9/11, he was one of the responding officers trying to help save the poor souls trapped within.

    Michael Jackson was supposed to be in one of the Twin Towers for a meeting, but he overslept and missed the meeting. I'm not joking.

    Keep this thread respectful guys, 20% of the posts here have already been trashed for being useless. If you have nothing positive to add don't post here.

    Screw the conspiracies. They don't matter. We still lost many lives. Be respectful.
    Remember 9/11

    Sad you did not get my moment of silence post. That aside, rest in peace 9/11 victims. Have a couple of family friends who died that day. :(

    Edit: Sorry, I should've been more clear about my post.

    I took a moment of silence yesterday (11/09 Australia). It's not just America that was saddened by the events that happened on that day, it was a world-wide stopper. Truly a sad day.
