No one forgets this day. It changed so much in the world in regards to the USA. Flight controls, Border controls, Immigration controls, Fear, Security. Is the world a better place with all the security we now have? Are we safer?

On that day… I was afraid… But I remember the sense of strangers coming together, community, family…. I remember strength. I remember courage. I remember love.

There are many stories of strangers coming together on 9/11. But this one about the little Canadian town of Gander, always get's me. In the wikipedia article, there's just a paragraph about it and I'm sure there's much more written elsewhere. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gander,_Newfoundland_and_Labrador

Unfortunately I don't think we are a lot safer, but we had to give up a lot of freedom.

I was in AP Psychology class in High School. They put my school on lockdown as I was only 2 hours from DC…those images will never leave my mind.

I was working sales at a popular mall in Ottawa(nations capital) at a cable company store. The entire mall came and crowded by my tvs.  I had to watch it for hours, every broadcast…. for 8 hours… It was a lot of negative ongoing depressing terrifying news.

No. We're not. And I do NOT believe it was an inside job. I do know that there are people all over the world that want nothing but to destroy America. I also noticed there is an anti-Christ – anti-God element spreading. Especially from the left. Be warned. The ego is very clever. The ego is chaos.

I was driving to the office with the radio off. When I got to the office there were TVs going and I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was like I was in a bad dream. To see the Twin Towers collapse was so surreal I still can't believe it.

I'm praying together. so don't mind.
Please let me read my article after you. I have been to NY memorial park in 2010, 2011 with white rose at 9.11. My heart is as same as you. I hope the eternal peace. In Japan, same, 3.11 Disaster happened. we'd like to recover quickly, however it is very difficult. we have lots of something to do. We continue to do, never give up. Keep in touch for each recover the mental care.

I understood why some changes were made, but are we really safer? I'm not so sure. 

I was getting ready for college class, and I saw the WTC smoking. I had hear about planes going down in D.C. and PA. I knew it was no accident. Then later, they showed clips of each aircraft hitting each tower. I had greater difficulty in concentrating on my work for at least a week.

No, you're not really safer, but the fear mongering is paying off for a lot of people who make a ton of money off it.
Between the fear and our responses (please, Government, keep me safe, I'll give up my rights and money for you), the terrorists have won by definition.
