    Got back from school, saw it on the news. I was only 10 but it was incredibly sad, I will never forget the footage of people jumping.
    That's what sticks out in my mind too. To choose to die that way as it was probably the better option compared to what was going on inside the building with those huge aeroplane engines whizzing around. OMG.

    I was on my way home from school, my aunt pulled my mum over to tell her when she was driving us home. *I don't remember exactly what was said but I didn't realise how bad it was until we got home and saw footage on TV. *

    I can't remember seeing it on TV

    I was in school and one of the teachers told us that something bad happened in America but that's it really, I was about 7 at the time so don't remember a lot from it.
    So you're 22:holmes:

    9/11 has been over-exaggerated.

    Everyone always comes out with crap about how they feel guilty carrying on as normal because of the innocent lives that were lost. What about the millions of lives that were lost because of it? what about the thousands of lives that are killed each day because of wars? A big deal was only made of it because it was America it happened to.

    Its true though.

    'omg omg 9/11 was the worse day in history. Forget about the millions of innocent lives america is responsible for ending. Forget about the thousands of lives destroyed in the so called fight against weapons of mass destruction. forget about much worse events that happened in the past.'

    I think that what sets it apart is the whole Downtown New York/Buildings falling down thing. You don't feel the same way about more deaths in third world countries that are spaced out over weeks or months instead of a few hours.

    Apparently I saw it happen live on TV with my mum when I was one, so I was at home, I suppose

    I admit the style of attacks was unique. Its not often that planes are used as direct targets to destroy buildings and live. However, that doesn't make it any worse than what happens everyday across the world.

    Absolutely. It's just that the dramatic impact that was covered live, and the way in which so many people died at once, that explains why people care more about it than other attacks. Besides, like it or not, an individual human life has greater perceived value in the US than in non-Western countries, due to a variety of fairly obvious reasons.

    I remember watching it on TV when I was 15 and then (either the same or next day) saying to my classmates that it was suspicious that Tamoor from science class was off that day. No one laughed .
