    I think that we need to remember September 11 because it shows that no matter what happens to us we Americans can over come it. But it also shows that we also are weak but we can come over any challenge that is relevant.

    I'm from south Korea and I think it is important because those people that gone has done nothing wrong, so we need to remember because we will never have such kind of terrorist attacks.
    THANK YOU !!

    I think its important to remeber on 9/11 is when Osama Bin Laden was the blame for the terroist attacks in 2001. When he die i still didnt enjoy that people were celibrating the death of Osama Bin Laden.

    I was there to witness the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, and though I was very young at the time, I still remember it clearly. It was a very scary moment because my dad worked there and we thought he had died in the attack. Luckily, he was not in the building, but standing outside, waiting for me and my mom to pick him up. I really think we should remember this to honor those who were killed in the accident, those who survived, and those who sacrificed themselves to save the Capitol. It really brought the whole world closer together, it was a time where the countries were all friends for a moment.

    It is important to remember this because it was a time when we Americans formed a truly unbreakable bond as we came closer together to help all the families that lost one or more of their family members in the attack.

    I think we should remember these attacks because I was just a toddler when this happened. Also I'm originally from New York and my parents tried to not let me hear about the attacks. I didn't find out about them until about two years later. My parents told me about the dust covering our yard the next day and the cars at the nearby train station never being driven home by the driver again.

    Because on 9/11 it was a big tragic when they had did that in America and it is still now. And alot of people died that was probably special to other people.

    August 23, 2011 at 10:37 pm |
  8. Taylor

    it is important to remember what happened on 9/11 because if you get down to thinking about it, many people were killed. We who survived were lucky enough to actually made it through. From past years, when I have watched the specials on 9/11, i have heard so many amazing stories of survival. One of my dad's friends were in the attack of the pentagon, and he remembers it being a terrifying, and horrific, sight. He has saved many people's lives, and he continues to remeber that day clearly.

    Right after the 9/11 attacks USA was more united than ever because we had fear. and because we had gotten attacked. 2,976 died that day, leaving america to mourn. We still remember the footage caught on tape played over and over again. When we got attacked, America did not fall apart, we did the opposite the terrorists thought. We should still remember the fallen firefighters and the fallen medics who helped saved many people, But we can't fall apart This Tenth Anniversary should remind us that nothing can tear the USA apart.

    August 23, 2011 at 10:55 pm |
  10. Maddie

    I think it's important because we remember our loved ones and we also remember the ones who died for us.

  11. Jaeyeong

    It's truly crucial because many victims were died and some people died during rescuing the others. So, that day, there was a huge tragedy, but there were Americans' amazing mindships to rescue the others, so as a result, Americans' mental quality for helping the others even they have risks have grew, so it was a chance that America became more mature.

    It is crucial to us,as american citizens, to remember all those brave men and women who died that horrible day. To carry on into the future, we have to remind ourselves of the past. Good or bad, we can't pretend it never happened. All we can do is be more cautious, and hope for the best. 🙂

    I feel it is important to remember September 11th for many reasons. First, it is vital to remember all of the innocent people whose lives were taken. Another reason is for all of the people who helped rescue, recover, and save people on that devastating day in America and the painful days after. Thousands of first responders and volunteers risked their own lives to save the innocent. In addition I feel it is important to remember 9/11 because we currently have soldiers overseas fighting for our freedom. Also it is important to remember because the suffering we went through on that day and we now have a greater appreciation for life and all of the promise it holds.

    It is always important to remember tragic events, because if one remembers these events, one can help try to prevent them and honor all of those who suffered. It is normal for one to feel sad about such things, but to remember is to do those who died a great honor.

  15. Zack

    It is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attacks because it is something that affected the whole country. People often complain about the wars that we are into but you can remember what started the war. Even as unpopular as it may be there is a reason we are fighting groups like al-Qaida

    August 24, 2011 at 10:11 am |
  16. Leo

    II don't remember too much about 9/11 because I was so young, but I believe it is important to remember it because was a horrific event in our past. I believe remembering will make us stronger and make us want to show the terrorists, that no matter what they do they will never stop us from moving forward.

    Having been so young when the towers feel and the school not showing the news I don’t have much recollection of that terrible day. But after visiting NYC last year and seeing ground zero and the construction I have new connection to the event and realize how great this nation is to be able to overcome such a tragedy.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:12 am |
  18. Alex

    I was in 3rd grade when 9/11 occured. I don't remember most of it, mainly because my teachers and parents didn't want to worry me. On this upcoming anniversary of 9/11, the men and women who risked and lost their lives to save the workers of the World Trade Center, and the workers of the World Trade Center themselves, need to be remember as they were right in the thick of things when they seemed to be the worst. And after all the turmoil and sadness, we still came out on top. The 9/11 memorial being built in Ground-Zero right now is a perfect testament to the memory of those people as they now have a place to be remembered and honored.

    This date is very rememberable since my birthday is the day before 9/11, i remember watching all the faces of horror on the television. When i first heard about 9/11 i couldn't believe how someone would want to do that to so many people, i thank all the people who gave support for everyone who lost family members because of this event.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:14 am |
  20. Thomas

    I believe it's important to remember the 9/11 attacks to recognize why we're fighting a war. We went to fight the terrorist who attacked us. We need to remember that not everyone in the countries the terrorist come from are our enemies and that they shouldn't be put in the same group.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:14 am |
  21. Joseph

    I vaguely remember 9/11, being only 7 at the time, but I know that it is an important day to remember. It is important to remember those who lost their lives and their loved ones. And was also a time where our nation came together to provide support and prayers. The brave firefighters and police officers who risked their lives to save those buried under the rubble are people to think about as well and be grateful for. Though 9/11 was an awful tragedy, it brought this country together and the unity shown after the attack should be an example of how to live our lives and how great our country is.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:15 am |
  22. Jin

    It is hard to be on American perspective since i am not an american but what i think about 9/11 is that it was a warning to the attitude that U.S. had towards the other nations. I think the 9/11 attack warned the U.S. Government to stop involving in everything, However, i think impressing detest by terror is not the way to solve the problem. Terrorism is wrong in every ways because there is nothing more important and valuable than human's life.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:18 am |
  23. Akito

    The 9/11 attack should be remembered forever because it is one of the best examples showing how tragic it is that peaple hate each other. This event led US to Iraqi War and Afaghanistan War, and the latter is yet to be ended. I think we must not remember the day to prompt our hatred to those radical Islamic people. Instead, we have to look for a way to understand each other. Hatred and conflicts are already enough!

  24. Lyndzie

    Now that Usma bin Laden is dead,families who lost a love one in 9/11 can have closesure now that he is dead.Not only that our brave men and women who sacirficed their lives fighting in the war to stop terrorist.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:57 am |
  25. Taylor

    September Eleventh was the biggest and deadliest terrorist attack on United States soil in history. It's extremely humbling to think of how many innocent people were killed that day, and how many brave men and women risked (and sometimes gave) their lives to try and save them. This act of tremendous courage should be remembered, and honored through the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:04 am |
  26. Ms. Cortez'sClass

    We feel 9/11 should be remembered on the 10th anniversary because so many lives were lost and families were affected by it. It was such a big tragedy to our nation that it is important to reflect on the emotions that our country felt on that day.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:34 am |
  27. Alexis

    Its important because its apart of how we got to this day. Its devastating, yes but it also shows that we have achieved in getting through it. We as a country have been through a lot but never suffered something so severe as 9/11, you could consider it apart of history because it also destroyed the Twin Towers.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:38 am |
  28. Drake

    9/11 was a big tragity when it had happened in America and it is still now. And a lot of people had lost someone special or died in the inferno and is still a sad event for most people to remember.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:49 am |
  29. Tabitha

    I feel that it is crucial to remember the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack because it is a way to honor the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country, not to mention the children who were in the daycare located in the building. It is also a time to remember the families that were deeply effected by the tragedy. Although this was a bitter tragedy, it brought us together and made us a stronger nation willing to with hold anything.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:51 am |
  30. Samantha

    I feel that it should be remembered. It is a time for people to try and heal. I remember it every day because i was there when it happened and even though I was only 4, i remember all of those inocent people that had to unexpectadly gave their lives. When we remember, we can feel like we can possibly try to piece our-selves back together again.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:51 am |
  31. Cienna

    By remebering 9/11 we have shown that as Amercians we get dealt some low blows, we arent untouchable, but in that time of chaos and need, we became a nation. Standing tall and sturdy even when the buildings were crumbling around us and we became one unstoppable force. 9/11 has become somethign that people will remeber forever, i was barely able to understand what was going on but now looking back i can still see it in my mind, When Osama Bien Laden died, i didnt feel happy, just relieved thats all, anger and hate cant going on, break the cycle

    August 24, 2011 at 11:52 am |
  32. Trenton

    I believe that it is important to remember 9/11 because the event helps the country become stronger as a whole and helps us realize that we can battle through adversity. I also believe we should remember the ones lost in the attacks and should never forget them for their bravery. On the day of 9/11, it affected all of us, and even though I don't remember the day it happened, I feel that I'm apart of it just like everyone else in America was.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:52 am |
  33. Aoiyumei

    9/11 should be remember because of all those innocent people killed or lost loved ones that we will never see again. It is one of the saddest events of our country but we are all happy because for ones who are no longer they are in a happy place

    August 24, 2011 at 11:52 am |
  34. Adrianna

    I think it is important because the people that died in that horrific attack didn't ask to die and they aren't asking us to remember them but it would be respectful to pay some type of honor or tribute to them and also the firemen and all those that tried to help out in any possible way and ended up loosing there lives trying to save others! In my opinion all of those that had a share in 9/11 are heroes and will always be heroes to me ❤

    August 24, 2011 at 12:23 pm |
  35. Jeremy

    I was only seven when it happened and I was across the country, so it didn't have a direct impact on me, but I still feel major sympathy for the victims and the families that were in the attacks. It was the deadliest attack in the United States to this date, and there's no way to forget something like that.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:38 pm |
  36. Kasay

    It is important to remember what happened on 9/11 in order to move on as a country. We have gone through many hardships but have always bounced back as strong nations always do. Also, if we don't remember our past, it could happen again.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:40 pm |
  37. Johnny

    It is important to remember 9/11 because of what happened at the World Trade Center in New York. Many people died during that attack by terrorists, giving a cause for worldwide attention towards that.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:41 pm |
  38. Caleb

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 because sometimes we get too secure in our country, feeling that we are safe and that no one would even dare. 9/11 opened our eyes, showed us how vulnerable we really were, and where we needed to improve security. Luckily since then, most terror attacks have failed such as the christmas bomber. It is also important to remember those who rose to the challenge to help those in need, and showed us that on the flipside, there are people out there who will help people and care for others. There sacrifice, the firefighters and other people who helped rebuild or rescue, shall never be forgotten.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:41 pm |
  39. Zachary

    It's important to remember the past, no matter what. Tragedies and victories alike teach us important lessons, and people remember that lives were lost, and things change. 9/11 is the most significate terrorist attack on the US, and also shows what people can do when they work together, being those brave souls who helped those poor people.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:42 pm |
  40. Leona

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because we need to remember the people who threw themselves into the burning twin towers to save as many people that they could. They are just like our everyday heoros. They looked direcly into the face of death and attacked. They sacrificed their lives for others. We should remember their courage, strength, sacrifice, and how they ran into their graves to dig other out of theirs before they were fully buried.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:43 pm |
  41. Jon

    I believe that it is important to know that an its not impossible for someone to attack America on its own soil. If you had asked someone before 9/11 if it was possible, they probably would have said that it wasn't possible for anyone to threaten America on its own turf. Being humble can help us by preventing another attack, even if it might seem paranoid. With all of the security precautions in place now, I doubt it could happen again the same way.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:43 pm |
  42. jacob

    September 11th should be remembered because it was the biggest tradegy in American History that has ever taken place. Now that Osama Bin Laden is dead, the families who lost loved ones can have closure for the anniversary and feel better rather then sorrow

    because of all the couragous deaths on that day

  44. Katie

    September 11 2001 many people lost innocent family members. We need to recognize those familes and those who we lost on that devastating day. As a united country, we need to come together to recognize the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because we need to remember the people who threw themselves into the burning twin towers to save as many people that they could. They are our everyday heoros. They looked direcly into the face of death and ran to attack. They sacrificed their lives for others. We should remember their courage, strength, sacrifice, and how they ran into their graves to dig other out of theirs before they were burried.

    The familys that have lost a friend or loved one has my full respect. I was only 6 years old in the 2nd grade when 9/11 occured, but the event is part of my childhood history. I have watched many videos of the attack over the years and i have always wanted to know how it would feel if i were to see the plane hit with my own eyes. I give 9/11 families my full respect.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:50 pm |
  47. Courtney

    The reason it is important for us to remember the date 9/11. Is for us as people to remember those who gave their lives to protect us from the dangers of the attack. I know we need to remember this date for that sole reason. We need to respect their actions with pride on that very date, and give thanks to their families.

    August 24, 2011 at 12:53 pm |
  48. Kimber

    I think it is important to remember 9-11 because of all the lives that were lost and how that effects the families that lost somebody in the attack.

    dear caral i hope the 9/11 families r okay it just hurts me when the video is played in history class. my friends gr8 gr8 gr8 grandma was a nurse in 9/11 and it has been a loooooooooong time since it happened but i hope they are coping with it all & we watch your show every day and i like to watch it

    The following are comments generated by a Current Events class:

    "It helps us to remember how vulnerable we can be to terrorist attacks."
    "We think 9/11 is important to remember because we need to honor the people that dies. Also, because it shows our country is strong and kept going."
    "I think it is important because a lot of people had family and friends in the towers and on the planes that died."
    ""To remember all the peoelp who dies and to remember how horrible terrorism is."
    "Because of all the people that were killed."
    "To remember all the people who were lost and all the people who risked their lives to save others."

    Perhaps we have to remember it so that it can never happens again.(Not to repeat history). Plus it's a memorial for those who died on that terrible day.

    August 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm |
  54. Peter

    It is especally important to remember 9/11 this year for three reasons. Reason one, it is the tenth aniversary of the tradgic "suprise attack". Reason two, this year, SEAL team 6 lauched the raid to kill Osama bin Ladin. Reason three, so many people died, and we need to remember and honor them.

    August 24, 2011 at 2:13 pm |
  55. Anna

    I think that the U.S. has come a long way since 9/11. The war on terrorism is not over, but I think you all will agree that we've had some significant things happen. I think it's still an important thing to remember because that was a very important event in world history, and one that affected the WHOLE world. That doesn't often happen, and the steps we have taken since then have made everyone feel safer.

    August 24, 2011 at 2:18 pm |

    I think we should remember 9/11 because it was a sad moment in history, and i remember it because my great grandmother died there i she was in the tower at the time ..... thank u to all the people who do charesh the moment ... thanxs

    9/11 was one of the biggest terrorists attacks ever. You should always remember an event where another country wanted to hurt Americans, especially because of the so many people that died that day.

    9/11 is probably the biggest terrorist attack in the past decade. People would like to remember not the day, but the people and the people they love who lost their lives on that terrible day

    August 24, 2011 at 3:23 pm |
  62. Brayden

    We should remember it because a lot of innocent people died that were just working in one of the towers. And because its ten years which has been a while and a lot of people on the plane died to. They just wanted to get back at us for really nothing.

    August 24, 2011 at 3:24 pm |
  63. Kristen

    I feel 9/11 should be remembered on the 10th anniversary because so many lives were lost and families were affected by it. It was such a big tragedy to our country, that's why it is important to respect the feelings that our country felt on that day. 🙂

    August 24, 2011 at 3:25 pm |
  64. Bekah

    its important to remember 9/11 because it was one of the biggest it terrorist attacks. I also think so because so many people were killed in this tragedy and it affected so many people that day.

  65. Braxton

    When I was 4 years old my uncle told me about the 911 terrorist attacks planned by Bin Laden, and how he felt about it. When he saw the twin towers fall he said that it felt like an eternity to when the towers hit the ground.After that, he said that these attacks are a major suffering in all of america, but in the our sufferings they bring us perserverance, hope and eventually stregnth!

    😥 It was a very bad tragedy. And it still is today. 😥

  67. Drew

    I think that we should be remembered because one of the planes the passengers turned the plane to not hit the white house. The other people killed by it and the sears towers. Now that those have hit we have become more ready it if they strike again.

    August 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm |
  68. Brennon

    because a lot of people died in 911 so we should honer and memorize the people who died. 🙂

    August 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm |

    because it could happen again. we do know the past but not the future. they might attack again 😦

    I think that 9/11 is important because we should remember the people that died. That we are vulnerable when terrorist attack.

  71. Ryan

    Remembering the bombing will disinfluence future terrorists from terrorizing the country anymore. They will think how the event may even affect them in a way. It will also honor those who died, and keep us prepared for future bombings.

    August 24, 2011 at 3:30 pm |
  72. Derick

    It helps us to figure out what we need to do to avoid future terrorist attacks. Also, we need to remember it to honor the people who died in the crash, the people who helped prevent the Pentagon crash, and the people who risked their own lives to save others.

    August 24, 2011 at 3:30 pm |
  73. Ellie

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because it was a very deadly event which happened in the U.S. A terrest attack. i know this isn't a good thing to remembe, but we need a chance to remember those lost one's of us or our country. Many inwhich risked their own lives to save the ones in danger. Some are still around to tell us the whole story on what happend. We thank them.

    August 24, 2011 at 3:39 pm |

    I think it is important for us to remember the terrorist attack on September 11th 2001 becuase we need to remember that we always need to know just how dangerous they can be, and that just maybe we aren't the strongest. As I am only in sixth grade i don't remember much, but now I know that is is truly important.

    I think it's important for us to remember the terrorist attack on September 11th 2001 because we as 11 years old don't really remember what happened. It's also important because it's an part of history and it was very tramatic for the people who remember it. Rembering the Twin Towers is like remembering an old friend or dog that past away they may be gone but the will always be remembered. 6th Grader

    9/11 was a very sad day when a plain crashed into a building in New York. A terrorist put a bomb on a plain causing a fire and the plain to crash. This killed many people. 9/11 was a huge day in history and will never be forgotten.

    August 24, 2011 at 4:28 pm |
  77. Patrick

    I think we should alsways remember because it was the worst tragedy in our nation's history! It's also a reminder for us to remain vigilant, as a society, in the face of terroist plots.

  78. Zane

    I think it is important to think about because it helps us remember that this world is not perfect and sometimes we forget that living in the great United States of America. Also, it reminds us of the couragous people who went in the twin towers to save others, but never made it out. That takes a lot of courage, I know I wouldn't have done it.

    When people don't like America, they try to hurt us. Sometimes we can stop them in acting, but sometimes we can't. that's what happend on 9/11. We need to remember 9/11 because of those who didn't get out of bulidings in time. Or the ones on the planes with nothing to do but die with horrable people killing them. there are families with loved ones who now wish that they gave them one last hug. 9/11 also reminds us how we are so lucky to be free.

    9/11 was a devastation and the memory will always leave behind a scaring memory. Although, it is important to remember the people we lost and how they influenced us and our times with them. They will be missed and cherished and may they Rest In Peace!

    August 24, 2011 at 5:38 pm |
  81. Taylor

    I think we should remember 9/11 because so many people died on that day. So many people died to protect the lives of innocent people those were all couragous people. I

  82. Areeb

    It is important to remember that all types of people died in the 9/11 attack not only Americans. And that alot of people's friends and family died in the attacks. And also that lots of innocent people died in the attacks. And lots of people lost their loved ones.

    August 24, 2011 at 5:52 pm |
  83. Sara

    It is important that we remember the unfortunate lives that were lost, and we need to be sure that the terrorist are not planning another attack. That would be horrible and devastating.

    August 24, 2011 at 6:31 pm |
  84. Blake

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because of all the lives the damage took. Was this to prove a point, or just because their religion told them to do it? Also I thank the heroes on that plane for stopping any more damage.

    August 24, 2011 at 6:32 pm |

    Its not something that we want to remember but we have too. We have powered through this as one united nation.

    August 24, 2011 at 6:42 pm |
  86. Carla

    It is important to remember those attacks because all the people who died there. They all had families and someone waiting for them. I think the families of those peple deserve that american people remember what happened. Innocent people died and if we remember them, maybe they become closer to us, and besides, our past defines our future after all.

    August 24, 2011 at 6:47 pm |
  87. Andy

    We must remember because it's history. It was a horrible event that happened, and many people died. We should remember the men/women who risked their life to save others, the ones who died in the attack, and we should remember that no matter what happens in America, we are here to support every family, friend, or any person who has suffered from the attack. Whether it be that the lost a loved one, or was in the attack. God Bless America.

    August 24, 2011 at 6:55 pm |
  88. Sandy

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 because millions of people died and there family members that lost a loved one.... and i am glad that my brother wasn't there..

    August 24, 2011 at 7:05 pm |
  89. Jesus

    It is important to remember this because it was a time when we Americans formed a truly unbreakable bond as we came closer together to help all the families that lost one or more of their family members in the attack.

  90. Brian

    I remember this day very clearly. I was at my grandparents house playing on the flor I looked up and I saw the second plane hit. This is a pasionate subject for me. It was an unprovocked attack. I know many people don't care a lot now but this not over but, we are still in Iraq and Afganistan. I think about all the people who died, soldiers, victims of the towers, the people in the planes, and the familys. The assination of Bin ladin is not the end it is the begging of the end but one thing eveyone should never forget is 9/11.

    August 24, 2011 at 7:53 pm |
  91. kanga

    It's important to remember 9/11 because many people lost their lives on that specific day ten years ago. Despite the fact that many firefighters lost their lives in striving to save others lives. It's important to remember that something as devastating as 9/11 can occur again and we need to be aware.

    August 24, 2011 at 8:23 pm |
  92. Az

    It is important to remember this date because thousands of people died just for us. The people there were brave and one hijacked plane had some people fighting back just to save lives of other people. They are building a memorial to honor these people.

    August 24, 2011 at 8:28 pm |
  93. Rachel

    I think we remember 9/11 because we look back on what we lost and think about the many blessings we already have.

    August 24, 2011 at 8:49 pm |
  94. Rylee!!!!!!

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 on the 10th anniversity of the terrorist attack because it was a very important day in history. Many people died on that day trying to save other people and themselfs. Today they are considered heroes because of how brave they were. They risked their own lives to help others. Even strangers that were just walking by tried to help in some sort of way. People lost their families and friends on this tragic day that why i think it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:04 pm |
  95. Savannah

    I think its good to remember the 9/11 because if everyone didn't remember it would be as if it didn't even happen.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:05 pm |
  96. Eccence

    WE should remember because of what happened to all those people in the attack and how the family members felt when they got that news. I feel very sorry.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:15 pm |
  97. Kevin

    I think it is important to remember 9/11, because many people died and sacrificed their life. This 10th anniversary is even more special, because Osama Bin Laden died this year and he was the cause of 9/11.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:19 pm |
  98. Maddie

    I think it is important that we remember 9/11 because many people died and we should honor the people that gave up thier lives. I also think it is important that we support the family and friends of the victims because the 10th anniversary will be really hard for them. It makes me mad that Osama Bin Laden did something so bad that made so many people die and made many other people suffer. 9/11 will always be a day that we remember.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:41 pm |
  99. Jack

    I think it is good for us to remember 9/11 because there were so many people that died during it. They deserve to beremembered for their innocent deaths.

  100. albeerto

    I think this helps us to remember how are things in the world, and se how a world power can be attacked by terrorists and also make you remember how a united country can overcome from a tragedy

    August 24, 2011 at 9:54 pm |
  101. Jack

    All the innocent people that died desrve to be remembered. We should also be celebrating that Osama Bin Loden the person that lead the terrorist attack was recently killed.

    August 24, 2011 at 9:55 pm |
  102. Lina

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 becausethere were alot of people who died & alot of peoples family members died. To the family members of people who died in 9/11: You and your family will be in my prayers. God bless!

    9/11 Is a very sad day in american history. And cuse those who make fun of it. My mom's friend died in one of those attacks. It ticks me off when people make fun of others missery and death.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:36 pm |
  105. Farid

    I think we must remember this terrorist attack because this has caused several deaths, something that is horrible. In other way we also need to remember the heroes in the action to save the life of the people who was in the buildings that day, thanks to them today some people have a good life

    August 24, 2011 at 10:43 pm |
  106. Evelyn

    I think it's important to remember the September 11 it was one of the heaviest blows to the U.S.. The terrorist attack and the teaching to go forward together is what stands out.

    August 24, 2011 at 10:47 pm |
  107. Julia

    I feel 9/11 should be remembered for many things. Many people died on this horrific day, many fireman need to be honored for saving multiple lives of people, many people mourned over their lose of a friend or family member. And finally, this day needs to be remembered for our defeat of Osama bin Ladin and how our country kept on going and fighting through this very though time.

  109. Christopher

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because those who passed away on that day did nothing wrong, and I believe that the innocent fallen deserve some sort of respect or recordance for their untimely departures. Just as we would remember a deceased friend or family member on the day on the day they died, we should remember the innocent American citizens who injustly died on the day of the dreaded attacks.

    August 24, 2011 at 11:33 pm |

    I believe we should remember 9/11 because of the innocent souls that passed on that day. Many American citizens died injustly on that day, and they deserve rememberance for their untimely deaths just as we would remember the death of a friend or family member.

  113. Lola

    It is important to remember 9/11 because we remember all the lives that were lost, and all the families that we affected in this tragic event. There were so many lives lost that even today they are still finding remains. 9/11 proves to the world that no matter what happens to the U.S.A we get through it all! United we stand!!

    August 25, 2011 at 12:35 am |
  114. COLE

    American government had the sentiment of ANTI-TERRORISM, not people working in the World Trade Center. Something wrong was cause by Bush administration, though, why innocent people had to lose their lives? and how about the feeling of their families? Even though it's been 10years, we shouldn't forget about it. We should respect their honorable lives, and moreover we must try not to happen again!

    August 25, 2011 at 6:37 am |
  115. Keith

    The very things that make this country great like freedom of speech and an open mobile society are the very things that make us vulnerable. Evil abides, truth and the will to preserve freedom have and will endure. 911 is paramount to that committment.

    August 25, 2011 at 7:35 am |

    I think it's important to remember the people who died in the building & thank those who risked their lives to go and save others.

    I think it is important for us to reflect on the 9/11 attacks because it makes the country more alert and in some ways it can make us stronger.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:46 am |
  126. Hunter

    It is important because we need to show the terrorist that we will never forget that day, and to show the families of the victoms that we also will never forget them. On 9/11 i was in kindergarten i did not understand what it was about then but since then i have relized what it was about. We shall not forget you all.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:47 am |
  127. nicasia

    After 10 years, I am still have sympathy for all of the families that lost all of their loved ones. some people don't think nothing of it because they weren't there but if u sit back and think "What if my mother, father, sister or brother was in this incident?" You will understand how they really feel. I wasn't there and i started crying. my heart goes out to them.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:47 am |
  128. Kimberly

    It is important to remember this because it was a time when we Americans formed a truly unbreakable bond as we came closer together to help all the families that lost one or more of their family members in the attack.
    It was a big tragic when they had did that in America and it is still now. And alot of people died that was probably special to other people.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:49 am |
  129. Diede

    I think it's an important to remember 9/11, because we need to remember that something horrible like this can always happen. Many people were killed, so many people who risked their lives to help and we have to remember them.
    And I think it makes the U.S stronger, because we show now that nothing can stop us and we will always move forward.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:50 am |
  130. Daye

    We have to remember Sebtember 11th.
    Because a lot of innocept people were killed.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:55 am |
  132. Miguel

    The reason it is important for us to remember the date 9/11. Is for us as people to remember those who gave their lives to protect us from the dangers of the attack. I know we need to remember this date for that sole reason. We need to respect their actions with pride on that very date, and give thanks to their families

    August 25, 2011 at 9:56 am |
  133. Brittany

    WE ❤ U NAVY SEALS!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for all you have done! America is different since the 9-11 terrorist attack and i think that it will remain different

    August 25, 2011 at 12:54 pm |
  134. Joaquin

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 is because of all those people who died on that day. The people did not know that 9/11 would be there last day on earth. It is also good to rember that there is not always good in the world we still have people who are dangerous and are willing to hurt us. It helps the younger kids know that There were 2 tall towers in New York and the both crashed down killing hundreds of people and leaving behind a clound of death has it tumbled down to the ground.

    August 25, 2011 at 1:07 pm |
  135. Karla

    I think its good that you remeber the 9/11 event because it was an important event in the history not only of u.s. but of the world but they should not make a fuzz about it just let it go.

    August 25, 2011 at 1:43 pm |
  136. Carla

    In my opinion its nice that you remember about 9/11 but i think its time for you to let go since its a painful memory to look back on. People are still not over it, and its time that they get over it, because you may go one day not remembering it and they boom the news remind you of 9/11. So let it go, it will be fine.

    August 25, 2011 at 1:45 pm |
  137. Annie

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because many inosent people died that day and and we should remember them. It also brought our country together in a time of need and we stood strong.

  138. Amy

    I think it is important for us to commemorate the terrorist attacks September 11th 2001 beacause being 11 years old I don't really remember what happened. It's also important because It's part of history and it was very tramatic for the people who remeber it.Remembering the Twin Towers is like remembering an old friend or a dog that past away they might be gone but they will always be remembered.

  139. Lauren

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 victims because even though it was ten years ago we all still remember the tradedy.

    Dear carl i think that 911 was a really sad.Story i hope the familes will be ok.It rminds me of what we can do for those familes.

    August 25, 2011 at 4:48 pm |
  141. Brooke

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because we need to honor all the people who died in The World Trade Center and who showed bravery running in there to save others. It also shows our country is strong and will not be defeated easily.

    August 25, 2011 at 5:37 pm |
  142. Joanna

    Its important to remember the 10th anniversery of 9/11 to honor those who have fallen in the panic of the 9/11 attack. Also that as americans we can overcome anything.

    August 25, 2011 at 6:27 pm |
  143. Richardy

    So that people will remember this day and honor the people who died on 9/11.I still don't feel happy even though Osama bin Laden is dead.

    August 25, 2011 at 6:38 pm |
  144. Mackenzie

    9-11 can be rembered in a great way and in a tragic way, in the unbeliveable way our nation stood up as a whole, but in the tragic way we suffered through a horrible nightmare in America. It is great to rember how we all stood up and fought for what is right!

    August 25, 2011 at 7:51 pm |
  145. Caroline

    We need to remember the 9/11 attack, because we need to remember all of the firefighters and policemen that sacrificed their lives for our safety. We also need to remember this time, because it brought everyone in the nation together. Although this was a sad time, we should remember this.

    August 25, 2011 at 8:00 pm |
  146. Layla

    Because it was a devastating day for america.

    August 25, 2011 at 8:31 pm |
  147. Yurina

    I think that it is important to remember this day because it is a day which we can think about all the people who have been killed in all terrorist attacks , not just the 9/11 attacks of 2001. By remembering these people that have died because of the attacks, I think we can make the world a better place by teaching ourselves that we should help each other in times of need.

    August 25, 2011 at 8:43 pm |
  148. Ford

    I think 9/11 should be remembered because a lot of people died and loved ones were lost that adyand that was also why we have gone to war with terrorists. Soldiers show courage and bravery as they laid down their lives in the war for the ones who died on 9/11.

    August 25, 2011 at 8:44 pm |
  149. Sophie

    I think we should remember 9/11 for the families of the victims. Their loved ones died because of some self-righteous terrorist who decided to attack us because of our beliefs. We have rights, and the victims and their families were deprived of theirs. The victims suffered, and should be remembered, but their loved ones had plenty of hardships afterwards.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:12 pm |
  150. Daniel

    i think 9/11 should be remembered on its 10th anniversary, not as such a bad thing, I value life but, that day america was devastated not as two or three or so on, but it was sad as a whole. That day was terrible but we realized we were not immune to attack. We saw through the lost what we were made of and are making it what we want it to be, even today.

    August 25, 2011 at 9:21 pm |
  151. Sheba

    It lets us remember all the people who died because of this attack and it reminds us the one act can change the world forever

    August 25, 2011 at 9:51 pm |
  152. Monique :)

    I was in 2nd grade when this tragic event happened, I remember my dad telling all the kids to sit and watch the news about it on TV. He wasn’t sure if the schools were going to close down or not. I think it’s important to have a 10 year anniversary for multiple reasons. First off it’s something that affected individuals, families, and us a country as a whole. Second thing is since that attack there hasn’t been a successful attack against the United States, it also showed how vulnerable we are to attacks on our soil from the lack of immigration enforcement policies. The third thing is, I find kind of not right is that the congress, the legislative, and the executive branch all got invites to the anniversary but the fire-fighters and the police officers that risked their lives and some lost their lives didn’t get an invite, but they didn’t get invited to the tragic event that day they went willingly, to protect and serve our country. It also reminds us that we have fought for every bit of freedom we have, and I’m a proud American and always will be.

    August 25, 2011 at 10:08 pm |
  153. Yazi

    It is important to remember 9/11 and the people who died at horrible day. We have learned from our mistakes that allowed that to happen, and we must keep learning. It is important we teach future generations about that day so they know how to prevent it from happening again. We also must keep in mind we have to let go of the pain and sadness at one point because that only fuels hate.

    August 25, 2011 at 10:14 pm |
  154. Eleanor

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 because sometimes loss and fear protects us. In this case it really opened America's eyes, encouraging us to really take action against terrorism, and realize our vulnerability.

    August 25, 2011 at 10:31 pm |
  155. DAVIS

    I think that 911 is an terrible event because it brings back the memory"s of the terror and all of the American's lost but also a good thing because we are thinking about how to get rid of terrorism. I think it should not only be an American event but also an event worldwide because people should realize that it could have happen to there country to just as easy as it did America. Also they need to think about how many lives Al Qaeda caused and to be sure that they don't support it and to be aware of it.

    August 25, 2011 at 10:41 pm |
  156. yaz

    I think it is very important to remember the 9/11 not only for every 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, but just because it was a time that the society of the United States got really affected because of the terrorist attack of the twin towers that were very important to the USA.

    August 26, 2011 at 12:33 am |

    i think it would be a great way to honor them and remember

    August 26, 2011 at 10:13 am |
  158. alisha

    i think it should be remembered because it will be exactly a decade since it has happened. It was a very important part in history and deserves to be recognized.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:19 am |

    I think it should be remembered because of all the people who died on that day. For all the firefighters who risked their lives to try and help save the people who were in the building.

    It's very important to remember 9/11. It was a horrible day but we should never forget what the terrorists did to the trade centers, we should never let them feel as they have defeated us, were The United States of America, we stand united and proud.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:20 am |
  161. Dustin

    Without remembrance we would not be able to appreciate the sacrifice made by those on that fatal day. They lost their lives and deserve to be remembered. It would be a testament to the American Spirit, that even though you may knock us down, we will always find a way to get back up.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:22 am |
  162. Jessica

    So many innocent lives were lost that day. Thousands of people's lives will never be the same now. Out of respect for the innocent lives which were lost, I do believe it's a good idea to always remember what happened. Also it was a major historical event as well.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:22 am |
  163. Ali

    It is important to remember 9/11 not only because of the many men and women who we lost, but also the men and women who risked their lives to go into those burning buildings. It was amazing to watch America as a country to come together and take care of one another. What happened should never be forgotten. We should always honor those men and women and the way we looked after each other.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  164. Holly

    Remembering 9/11 is important because on that day a lot of people were injured and a lot of people passed away. I think we should remember this because America is strong and we have overcame this incident but we have not forgotten the ones that we lost.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  165. Brooke

    I think September 11th should be remembered for lots of reasons. Lots of people died that day it was a big tragedy for us Americans. We should also remember the fire fighters who died that trying to save other people. Also lots of people were affected by this tragedy.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  166. Sara

    I believe it is important to remember 9/11, because all of the people who lost their lives as well as the families who lost family members deserve to be remembered. Also it was an attack on our country that scared many, but we didn't surrender and we stayed strong. Although I'm sure many of us were young and do not fully remember what happened, I bet we all can remember where we were when we found out about it.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  167. Kendra

    It is important to remember the attacks on 9/11 because of the many lives that were affected. Men, women, and children throughout the entire country felt the effects of this terrible disaster. Whether one actually lost a friend or relative, or if they just were touched by this we must never forget those people.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  168. Tiffany

    It is important to remember 9/11 because many innocent people died from terrorism. We need to remember all the people who had loved ones die in the twin towers as well as on the plane.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:24 am |
  169. Finn

    I think we should remember 9/11 because it had a huge impact on how our country is now. There are lots of new things, new laws, new restrictions in our nation because of 9/11; and I think its important that if we have laws and restrictions we should remember why we have them. Otherwise people just start to think of it as just another pointless confusing law. But if they understand why that law exists, they might have a different out look on it.

  170. Jennifer

    I remember being in 2nd grade when the tragedy occurred and I didn't understand what had really happened until later on. The day should be remembered because there were a lot of lives lost because of the attack. We should remember the people who gave there their lives to save others and be proud to live in this nation.

    August 26, 2011 at 11:24 am |
  171. Cellphone

    The reason I remember 9/11 is because my uncle is a firefighter in the U.S. Air Force and he was one of the one's that helped after the attack. He had friends that died and that were badly hurt. We should all remember that day and we should be thankful that we have the men and women in the military.

  173. Vansh

    I believe that 9/11 was a very important day for Americans. It made us realize that no matter how safe we feel, or how we take this country's security for granted, we are still vulnerable to attacks by terrorist organizations. 2000 of our people died in that attack.

    August 26, 2011 at 12:30 pm |

    I was in the second grade when the attack happened. I didn't quite understand what was happening. I know there was a terrorist attack. It was very depressing because a lot of innocent people died. It is important to remember that day because there were many heroes that were killed while trying to save other lives.

    August 26, 2011 at 1:56 pm |
  179. Cierra

    We need to remember 9/11 because of the lives that were lost, and that's an important time when we came together. A huge terrorist attack like that, can not be easily forgotten.

    August 26, 2011 at 1:56 pm |
  180. Tyler

    Its good to remember because a bunch of innocent people died. Also a bunch of people trying to help out with 9/11 died. We need to remember all the people who lost loved ones in 9/11 too.

    August 26, 2011 at 1:57 pm |
  181. Savannah

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because of all of the families that were affected by it. Those family's need to be remembered and kept in our thoughts as well as the loved one's that were lost.

    August 26, 2011 at 1:57 pm |

    I would think it is to say how sorry I am to every one who lost their loved ones .

    August 26, 2011 at 1:57 pm |

    It is an important day to remember due to the fact that while attacking the U.S. they attacked much more than just Americans. They attacked people from many different countries found all through the world. Many people died for the wrong reason, and many were lost.

    August 26, 2011 at 1:57 pm |

    Its important to remember 9/11 because it was one of the first times that the nations been under a terrorist attack. Also because of the lives that were lost

  189. A.J.

    All the incident people who died that day was a big tragic to the US. All the police and fireman who died saving wounded people. We should all pray and be thankful for the people we have serving our country.

    August 26, 2011 at 2:07 pm |
  190. Jasmine

    It was an important date in history, and we should be hopeful nothing like that will ever happen again. Terrorists are hopefully be stoping because of their leaders death.

    August 26, 2011 at 6:01 pm |
  191. Clarice

    Many people lost very important or not so important people on 9/11. We should be considerate for those people and also celebrate the death of Osama Bin Ladin he was the one who started that.

    August 26, 2011 at 6:21 pm |
  192. Savannah

    "We shall never forget, We shall keep this day, We shall keep the events and the tears. In our minds, our memory, and our hearts, and take them with us as we carry on." As anyone reads this quote in reference to the 9/11 terrorist attacks their hearts will feel heavy and they'll remember all the tragic events that happened that day. I feel that it is important to remember 9/11 as the 10th anniversary approaches because it gives us a chance to honor and remember the heroic people to risked their lives, and those who lost theirs. The two huge pieces of real estate that stood at the end of Manhattan were iconic symbols of American might. They came down because a determined bunch of criminals figured out how to turn passenger planes into flying Molotov cocktails. 9/11 will always be a day never forgotten by the people who lived through it because in modern history it was the only act of terrorist attacks on American soil, and I feel that if I would have gotten a chance to visit Ground Zero after the attacks it would have looked to me like a scar from the air.

    August 26, 2011 at 6:34 pm |
  193. ivy

    My sister was befor 9/11 she was 11 months old . When you have some one born on 9/11 or befor 9/11 . So that is why we should remember 9/11.

  195. Leah

    I Think it is important to remember 9/11 because so many people lost their lives in the attack. All the families that had people in the attack are probably very heartbroken. So this is a very important day to remember those who lost their inisnt lives and to remember the family members that had to endure such a hard and sad day.

    August 26, 2011 at 8:33 pm |
  196. HANnah :)

    I think it's important to remember the 9/11 attacks because of the brave people who died drying to save others and the innocent people who died for no reason.

  197. Addison

    As Americans, it's our duty to remember those innocent lives that were lost. It's easy to forget that families are still feeling pain from what occurred years ago. We also need to reflect on history, making sure something of this nature never happens again. By studying the past, we can improve our future.

    August 26, 2011 at 10:32 pm |

    9/11 should be remembered because alot of people got killed and it was a very sad and tragic day. I think it should be honered to celebrate all the people that lost their lives.

  202. Hayley

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because its show that anything can happen to the U.S. and we still stand strong. Also, this is a time to celebrate because the mastermind behind the attack, Osama Bin Laden, is now dead. This shows that we will not stop to anything until the terrorists that planned the attack are no longer a threat to our country.

    August 27, 2011 at 8:07 pm |
  203. Cara

    I think we should remamber 9-11 because it was and still is one of the most devisateing things that has ever happened to the US. We should also remaember it to say prayers to those who lost loved one and say thank you tho those who died to save the capitol.

    August 28, 2011 at 12:26 am |
  204. Nadia

    It is because we should not forget that violence produce another violence. I hope that cruel terrorist attack like 9/11 will not occer forever.

  205. Julia

    I think that it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attacks because there were many innocent people that lost their lives in the attack as well as many others trying to help save them. By remembering them we are honoring all of the lives lost on that tragic day.

    August 28, 2011 at 10:20 am |
  206. Sarah

    I think we should remember the 911 attack, because it brought the United States together. It shouldn't be forgotten because of all the people that were lost in the attack.

  207. Jacee

    I feel it is very important to remember September 11th. With the events that happened that day and the fact that America is still standing strong and together is a testament to how great this country really is. In those hard times America showed how well the country can really pull together. When history questions how America made it as a country, people can look back on the reactions and support during that time. Remembering September 11th is honoring all the people killed in the towers, all those who worked to save lives, and the citizens who pulled together on that day.

    August 28, 2011 at 4:03 pm |

    because 9/11 is a time where us as Americans show the world that we are a united country with great people

    I'm from N.C. and i think it is important to remember them because they died for no reason. They had family to come home to. They have people who love them. It's important to remember their deaths.

  210. Sweeley

    We need to remember it because our country has overcome such a big tragedy and were still moving forward. Also to remember those who passed and those who lost someone close and those who were involved and made it through. Its not like we should stop remembering. Remembering will only make us that much stronger.

    August 28, 2011 at 7:33 pm |
  211. Cassidy

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 and the terrorist attacks so that we can remember the brave firefighters and all of the people that risked their lives to save the people. It was a sad day and we should all think back and remember those who helped and lived / died for us.

    August 28, 2011 at 7:52 pm |
  212. Jacob

    I feel sorry for the families that had to go through the attack . I hope that we get the terrorist back some day. They should be ashamed to do something like that. Maybe one day will have peace with them.

    August 28, 2011 at 8:41 pm |
  213. Ben

    As a nation, the United States stand strong. 9/11 was a hard blow and not one person affected by it has forgotten. Ten years later, terrorist groups will look over here, and see that we're still standing tall.

    August 28, 2011 at 9:17 pm |
  214. Sam

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because no matter what good happens to this country it is important to remember the things that made us weak they just make us stronger.

    August 28, 2011 at 9:47 pm |
  215. Reed

    I think that it is very important to remember the attacks on the World Trade Center because of all of those who died. All of the brave soldiers who have died in Iraq or Afghanistan would still be alive if it wasn't for the attacks on September 11, 2001. The killing of Osama Bin Laden reminded everyone of the 3,000+ people that he killed. No matter how long ago the attack was, it should still be remembered by all americans

    August 28, 2011 at 10:12 pm |

  217. tingtong

    I feel that it is important to us Americans to rem ember all of the innocent lives that were taken on that day of 9/11. Not only were civilians killed but so were firefighters and police officers from everywhere killed trying to save the lives of those people who were trapped underneath all of the rubble. That day pretty much started the war on terror in Afghanistan. Still to this day we have soldiers fighting overseas to protect and preserve our freedom. America was brought closer together after 9/11 and was more of a nation, than we have ever been in a long time.

    August 29, 2011 at 9:20 am |
  218. Jordan

    I think that it is important to remember the events on 9/11 because many innocent people’s lives were taken in the attacks. Not only were the people in the Twin Towers lives taken, but the lives of the innocent men and women firefighters and EMTS. If it weren’t for their bravery and sacrifice we wouldn’t have had as many survivors as we did. Another reason I think that it is important to remember 9/11 is because when the attacks occurred I was 7. At that age you don’t remember much about what happens in the news even when everyone around you is talking nonstop about it. Even with all of the talk of the event a seven year old doesn’t understand much about it. I think by acknowledging the event more people will be able to look back and remember that horrific day and be thankful for the men and women who sacrificed their lives in order to help others.

    i think it will help us be where on terrorist attacks. we need to give praise to the people that died for us. This deferentially shows how great our country has been in any situation. We need to remember the people that had died in the awful terrifying terrorism that has happened on 9/11

    August 29, 2011 at 4:25 pm |

    I think that 9/11 is a date to remmember because after the attack it made us the americans stronger

  223. Valerie

    I think of the challenges we face each day as individuals and those we face as a nation. Our nation's family united despite such a huge tragedy and force against us. When I see pictures of the brave men and women who answered the call for help or even gave their life that day, I am proud to say I am an American. I wonder if I could ever be as brave as those people. I hope I can make a difference like they did.
    We must never forget that day in our history. We can draw strength, courage, and resiliance from the people, the time, and our response. God Bless America...my home sweet home.

  225. Marissa

    I think it's important to remember the 9/11 attack that happened 10 years ago because on that day us Americans came together as one. Not only did it have a major impact on the people who lost loves and the people who were in the attack and survived but it had a major impact all over the world. We came together lending out a helping hand and joined together as one. It shows that our Country is strong and together as one we can over come anything.

    August 29, 2011 at 11:42 pm |

    I think that we need to remember September 11th beacuse it shows that we are strong and able to come over all problems. I think that most of America had forgotten how strong we really are.

  227. Jarrod

    It was very sad what has happened to the people who lost their lives and what their families have had to go through. A new sense of nationalism has come out of this tradgedy and brought our country together.

  228. Savannah

    I think it is important to remember all the people that lost their lives and for their loved ones to get closure. That was a great time of need for America and we came together and bonded. It showed the rest of the world that we are strong and can make it through even terrible things.

    August 30, 2011 at 10:47 am |

  230. Chelsea

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because so many lives were taken from us. A lot of people risked their lives the save one another, and should be honored for doing such. No one asked them to help the others in need, so I think the least we all should do it thank the men and women for all that they did then, and are doing now.

    August 30, 2011 at 10:48 am |
  231. Rustin

    It is important to remember because on that day war was declared on the United States of America. It is important to remember the attacks of the terrorists on this day, the heroism of the rescuers and others involved in the consequences, and that it could all happen again. Before that day people didn't know about the strength and power that our country has. We handle our situations.

    August 30, 2011 at 10:49 am |
  232. Brandon

    It's important to remember 9/11 because it is what brought the country together. Many lives were lost for this day, those who fought for the innocent that died in the towers along with those who tried to save the innocent from the collapsing buildings. It is a day to recognize and honor all who gave their life.

    August 30, 2011 at 10:50 am |

    It is important to remember 9/11 because we cant just remember how vulnerable we can be to attacks but we also remember those affected by the tragedy. To remember those that died and those who risked their lives to save others.

    I think it is important to remember those people that died on that terrible day. A lot of people lost beloveds family members and friends, and i think that it is important to remember those who died during the 9/11 attack. The attack also shows how strong of a nation we are becuase we overcame the attack that day, and we were united. My hear goes out to the families and friends who lost someone during the attack. I thank those who risked their lives for us.

    When 9/11 happened, I didn't even know about it! Only being 3 years old, you don't really know much. But after 5 years, and people talking about the anniversery of 9/11 every year on the 11th of September, I decided to look it up. I was terrified, horrified, and cried histerically. Seeing all those people risk their lives to jump out of the 80th floor, and the plane crashing and killing all those innocent people made me realize why 9/11 was such an event to be known. I pray for all the beloved friends and family lost by the cold hearted terrorists. And soon hope, that nothing like that will ever happen again.

    When 9/11 happend 10 years ago I was only three so I dont really remeber anything, but thorugh school my teacher have been talking about how beautiful the twin towers were but how terrifying that day was!!! My reading teachers husband was actually on a plane back to Arkansas when this happend and as she told us this story she started to cry because she was scared that her husband was on one of the planes that the terrorists were on!!! It makes me want to cry just thinking about how many young children and families lost loves ones in the attack of 9/11, but I thanks the ones who put their lives on the line saving others!!!

    i think its awful that the W.T.C. went down because of the attacks and i think its a great idea to remember 911 and celebrate that the U.S.A. had found and killed Osama

    first we need to remember all the people that died that day. also we dont need to kill people because of there religion.

    i think that we should think of 911 on its 10th anniversiry because we remember those who died and those who those who live so that stuff dosent happen again. also so we remember the kinds of people that did that and that is something we can not forgive them for doing. i belive in forgiveness but for the people who kill for fun or for purpose will never be forgivin in my heart. what they did was very wrong and stupid so we remember this for one main reason though so it dosent happen again.

    i think we need to remember it because it was one of the most memorable days in american history. it shows the coniquences of our actions. we are invading other contries for no reason other than the fact they attacked us because we attacked them first. we need to remember all the people that died because of our governments actions and remember that even though the terorists attacked us all the responsibilities fall back onto our government and our actions.

    We should remember that day because it was u.s'.s one of the mistakes in history. We should remember the moment and feel sorry for the deads and reflect on ourselves. We should also remember the brave heroes who helped people to survive.

    If the pain and suffering that grieving family members felt towards lost loved ones in 9/11 is in ten years' time forgotten, we failed their memory. Remembering who they were and how they died is crucial to keeping their memory alive.

  248. Sarah

    It's important to remember those who have lost their lives or those who have lost loved ones. Some of the bodies have'nt been rocovered and we need to let those familys know that we care. We need to remember the heros and those who've survived and how important that was.

    August 30, 2011 at 12:53 pm |

    I think that we should remember the 9/11 attack for it was a terrible attack that happen to the U.S. and we shouldn't forget about it.

    Also many people lost many lives! And family's lost loved ones.

    And if we don't have a memoiral for the people who lost there lives, its like we will forget about about them. And we shouldn't dp that....

    Being in kindergarten I really don't remember that much but I remember going home and seeing a red circle on the tv which was showing where the plane hit the Twin Towers. Just remember the familys that lost a son our a daughter that may have been on vacation and that son or daughter never returned home. Everyone who was in the attack just wanted to let you know that everyone is in my Prayers.

    this was very sad. we need to remember this and learn from it. but do not blame it on the muslims. not all are bad! my father is a muslim of the islam religion. most are really peaceful, loving, and caring but there are a few extremests. like there are in the US its like saying all amreicans are like brittney spears (shaving our heads loosing our kids and all the bad things in the spot light)

    ❤ please never forget this!

    August 30, 2011 at 12:58 pm |

    I think that we should remember 911 but not make such a big deal about it. Like these earths quakes and hurricanes destroying towns citys in our America but its only on the news for a day and then they are forgot.

    August 30, 2011 at 1:00 pm |

    911 was a tragic event but it helped pull americans together to show nationlism or love for country we would not be the country we are today if 911 never happened

    It is important to remember the victims of 9/11 because many of them were heroes.

    It is important to remember the victims of 9/11 so that they are never forgotten, even ten years after this tragedy.

    I remember on 9/11 walking into the livingroom. My father was watching the news. He kept saying a he couldn't believe it but it was real it happened. Even the people who were not at the attack site were affected. It was a direct blow given to the United States that would not be forgotten. We promised to find the man responsible for the attack, and almost a decade later we did. However it will not change what happened to the United States, but it sends a message to other countries and that message is DON'T MESS WITH AMERICA! The memorimal being built at ground zero and the 9/11 flag being put back together by Americans is a wonderful way to remember 9/11. However these are big things that not everyone can be involved in. How can everyone be involved with remembering 9/11? By giving respect to the military, veterans, and the Amerian Flag. Everyday people are fighting for your freedom. Sometimes at a large cost. So when you see military personel let them know how much you appreciate them, and everything they do and have done. Another way to remember 9/11 is everday at my school the Pledge of Allegience is said, but only two people in the class actually say the words. TWO! out of about twenty people. Which is not right. Think about all the flag represents, how many people have sc araficed so much just for that flat, and for you. So when its time to say the pledge stand tall and let the whole world know the I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!!!

    I think that it is important to remember the attack on 9/11, because it helps remind us of all the amazing people that were heroes that day. To remember what they did for lots of children, saving their parent's, grandparent's and relative's life but, in the end dying for others sake. It shows that we can all work together to perform miracles.

    At the time of this disaster, I was not yet alive. But when I was in first grade, my teacher told me all about it. I just couldn't believe that people would do that to our country. I think that we need to remember all of the people that were killed and injured in this event. I also think we need to thank the people that risked and sacraficed their lives in order to save us and the country that we live in.
    This tradgic event should never be forgotten.

    August 31, 2011 at 7:04 am |
  259. Alice

    It is important because we need to remember our history and the many lives that were lost, including children's, when the twin towers cashed. Now that Osama bin Laden has been killed it is good to know that the mastermind of the plan isn't walking around while our friends and family are dead.

    I'm a history teacher in Texas, but my roots are in the NJ//NY area. When the WTC was attacked by the first plane I was walking into my school cafeteria. My AP told me what had happened...my response was "had to be a terrorist attack." The town where I grew up lost many people in the tower attacks. Very sad day for our country.

    I think it is a good idea to have the artificial sweeteners because people will buy more items, but it also is a bad idea because their food doesn't really smell like that so they are sort of cheating.

    I think that it is very important to remember the 9/11 terroist attacks because it was one day that brought our nation together. Also everybody that was involed in 9/11 is a hero to our country and deserve to be recognized and remembered. As sad as Ground Zero is it is a moument that marks a disaster in our country and should always be remembered.

    I think that it is inportant to remember the day because it was the day that alot of things changed about the world. Also that was he day when a big war started. We also need to remember it because our nation took a big hit and alot of people passed away on that day.

    I think we should remember 9/11, because a lot of policemen and firemen gave their lives for our protection. We should also remember this day, because it brought us together as a nation.

    i think we should remember 9/11 every year because many, many people died that day, and we should remember them, and we should be happy their lives are finaly avenged.

  274. Victor

    I beg to differ with any of these comments above. ( or at least most of them)
    Remembering this only shows how weak the US really is to this tragedy. I KNOW people died from this attack but some times its better to let them rest peacfully then to keep reviving the memory EVERY year. It poses as a trophy to the terriost group who attacked us. Im sure they throw a party on 9/11 to remmber it. And Im sure it satiisfies them to show the 20 programs that play
    I would rather see this to be remembered on a small scale, in comparison to its larger scale.

    It is part of our history now. Many Americans lost their lives that fateful day. It is also important because it happened on US soil. That date changed our daily lives FOREVER, but it also united our country.

    that was such a tragic day in history for so many people and i think that the memorial is very memoral to many of the families and the friends that lost someone to 9/11. but they will always be remembered in history and the hearts of many americans.

    September 1, 2011 at 11:33 am |

    hey its Fred I think that 9/11 reflects off the terrorist attack on the twin towers because that the twin towers "was" important to us so that is what i think on the twin towers

    I think we as americans need to remember 9/11 because it proves that we we broken down, that we didnt think there was a place to start< but look were we are now. We've moved up from where we were. The United States has progressed so much since then.Families lost there loved ones. but those people were innocent. All of those Navy Seals safed OUR lives but lost theres. These people didnt just walk away they did all they could to save us! we should be happy with what we have.

    This terrorist attack was extrememly horrible. Although I was not alive during this time, it happens to be 7 days after my birthday (September 4th), and whenever it is the month of September, I think of planes crashing into the Twin Towers and killing all those people. 😦
    Osama Bin Laden deserved to die for killing so many people!

    It is important to remember 9/11 because it was a very devatating day, but it showed America that we need to be more concerned of what happens in our country. Because of 9/11 we now have a really good security system in ALL of our aiports.

    September 1, 2011 at 4:10 pm |

    I thinks it is important to reflect on 9/11 because its not fair that the people who experienced the attack for the rest of there lives remember it and everyone doesnt remember ,its good to reflect on it so everyone knows what happened.

    I think it should help people remember who was in the plane, or in the building, even on the streets. It gives them the reasurence that we havent forgotten about them, and that we are willing to move on with our lives. But also to help the families that had a loved one lost on that day. Helps them move on, not only remember what they were as a person, but to remember what they did to help.

    September 1, 2011 at 7:06 pm |

    It's important to remember 9/11 because it was a tragic time in U.S. history. So why would we want to forget about it. We want to remember all the thousands of people that died on those planes.

    It is important to remember the lives that were lost in this terrible episode in 9/11. And some may have even sacrificed their own life to save the life of another. I wouldn't necessarily call this an "Anniversary" but an extremely important day that went down in history and changed America forever. 9/11 is now sad memory, a life-changing memory.

    It is true that we need to keep in memory of that day in order to prevent another tragedy, it must be painful for others to have to remember who they lost.

  332. Fidel

    I think that its important to remember 9/11 every single day not just on that exact date or because its it 10th anniversary. A lot of innocent people died that day fathers mothers and even children that will never get to witness the happiness of their parents when they finish school or to have the kindess and love of their parents.

    September 2, 2011 at 8:07 am |
  333. Max

    I think we need to remember 9/11 because it's part of our nation's history. The history of a country is one of the most important aspects of one's loyalty or nationality to that country and considering all that our nation has been through in such little time, remembering and recognising the history of America, whether it be good or bad, is very improtant.

    I agree 9/11 should be remembered, its a Tragedy of our time, but we arent alone.. look back at The attack on Pearl Harbor; December 7, 1941, people were devistated and people were lost, and a great war that followed even more people were lost.. Does that remind you of something? after the attack on the WTC we went to war as well, and if you think about it, if our proud country prevaled back then we will prevale now.

    It is important to remember 9/11 because it was a very devatating day, but it showed America that we need to be more concerned of what happens in our country. Because of 9/11 we now have a really good security system in ALL of our aiports.

    I think we as americans need to remember 9/11 because it proves that we we broken down, that we didnt think there was a place to start< but look were we are now. We've moved up from where we were. The United States has progressed so much since then.Families lost there loved ones. but those people were innocent. All of those Navy Seals safed OUR lives but lost theres. These people didnt just walk away they did all they could to save us! we should be happy with what we have.

    its important to remember the terrorists attacks on nine, eleven, because it was a tragic event that took many lives. We need to remeber them and honor them for what they were and forever keep them in our minds.

    911 is a HUGE day for the U.S. It left scars and pain on everyone. We should celebrate it because all those inoccent peolpe died but we are still alive. It could have been us that died if not them. Til' this day 911 is one of the MOST historic days of our lives.

    9/11 was the most horrible problem we had at at the United States, and not just because we lost a big important part of the U.S but we also lost thousands of people. Family's all over were devistaded of the horrible inccident. I think it is a good idea that we have a day to remember those who just tried helping.

    9/11 is a HUGE day for the U.S. It left scars and pain on everyone . We should celebrate it because all those innocent people had died but we are still alive. It could have been us that died if not them. Til' this day9/11 is one of the MOST historic days of our lives.

  342. Emilyann

    Personally, I don't think we should memorialize 9-11 because it just makes everyone around you sad. We should somewhat embrace it, knowing that we can repair and overcome such tragedies.

    September 2, 2011 at 10:08 am |
  343. Hyunstikio

    It is important to remember 9/11 because we should never forget the victims of the war and it would be insulting their memories if we don't remember it.

    September 2, 2011 at 10:17 am |
  344. Emilyann

    I understand it struck our country by surprise but why should we remember it and be scared about it. We've already experienced it we shouldn't hold on to it.

    September 2, 2011 at 10:29 am |
  345. Landon

    I think that we should never forget 9/11 because the world that we knew before the attack has changed. I like to think for the better. Sercurity is alot better then it was 10 years ago, with new technology, such as full body x rays and metal detectors.

    September 2, 2011 at 10:51 am |
  346. Marlen

    I think it is an important day because many innocent people were killed by the terrorist....

    I am a South Korean.

    9/11 was a bad and sad time but seeing the artifacts is cool but knowing that people died from it is sad.

  349. Laura

    I think that remebering the10th annviersary is very important because 9/11 changed everything. Now, when you get on a airplane you have to go through a extensive surch for anthing that might be dangerous. It is also important to remember the people that died and their families.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:15 am |

    I think it was a really sad day for everybody and we should remember everyone that had helped. I do believe that it will help the F.B.I. stop other invasions.

  352. Lexi

    I think it was a very scary and sad day for everybody if you lost somebody or not. I think people should keep in mind that we still need to remember that day and why its important to our American history. 9/11 is an important day that we need to remember for ever.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:17 am |
  353. Jill

    9/11 is apart of our U.S history, and i think it should be in remembrance of the ones who died. It is a important part of our history, and is good to have a memorial about it.

  355. Braden

    I think is important to remember 9/11 because many Americans died that didn't even do anything wrong, and their families had to go through life knowing their family members died of innocence.

    I think that it is important to remember the devastating attacks of 9/11 because a lot innocent lives were taken from us. But, we should remember the warming memories we had with those people and hope that others, who lost loved ones, are doing well and wish them the best on that miserable day in U.S history. The only good we got from 9/11 is that it brought our country CLOSER!

    September 2, 2011 at 11:27 am |

    it is important to remeber the 9/11 attacks because a lot of familys lost there loved ones and when it happpened and that is not fair to the loved ones who survied. if we did not remeber 9/11 we dont care about the ones who died

    September 2, 2011 at 11:28 am |
  359. Gaige

    we should remember 9/11 because a lot of people got hurt of killed because some people were being stupid and not smart. if they think first they would of probably not of done that.

  361. Jovanni

    We should remember this date because thousands upon thousands of innocent people died. It shows anything could happen at any given moment, because no one thought or speculated this could happen until it did. Also, we should be aware of our surroundings, not being suspiciousof others but cautious about what is happening. It also shows terrorism could be around us. We should also remember the brave men and women who gave their lives to save more lives. Although I was just a baby when it happened, I still feel that it should be remembered.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:29 am |
  362. stetson

    we should remember 9/11 for all the pepole that wer on that plane. and I whsh I was there wen it hapend.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:29 am |
  363. Ashlyn

    I think that it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because the FBI learned how to protect Americans and anyone else who come on planes. It is also important to remember those who died during the attack and to respect them. I think that a musuem about the attack is a wounderful way to respect them.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:30 am |
  364. dylan

    I think it good to remember them.
    It would be the right thing to do.
    it is nice of them to fight for us.
    so thats wy we should remember them.
    so be nice to the dead.
    so remember do good so we're remember your death.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:33 am |
  365. Elijah

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because it was the worst thing that happened in 2001. It killed a lot of people, paralyzed, and injured people, too. Every force on the good side was trying to find the person who did it. Ten years later they found out who died and shot him to make sure he wasn't going to cause any more harm to the world. Once he died, some people had parties and were very happy.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:33 am |

    9/11 had brought so much sorrow to peoples lives , it's really important that everyones remember what happened on that day. You never now how long in the future from now if people would even remember 9/11. All the lives that were lost that day , and that nes that couold not be saved.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:35 am |
  368. Angel

    We should remember 9/11 out of respect to all the people that mightv'e passed that day , not knowingly. Also,generations from now may ask what was 9/11 and they will be able to tell.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:35 am |

  370. Linnet

    I think It's a great idea that they finally made a museum to remember the accident and have in mind the people that died just like we have in mind the many people that died in the halocaust.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:36 am |
  371. Fatima

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 on the 10th anniversery of the terrorists because it was a day that affected the U.S a lot and younger generations should be able to know exactly what happened on the day, and we should keep those who were affected by the attacks in mind on this day.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:36 am |
  372. Samira

    We should always remember 9/11 because a lot of important people lost there lives. People that risk there lives to save them might not have been that unfortunet to be a live. More then 80 people were inside the towers when they collapsed. This should always be an important day, that we should always remember them for the good job they all did. ❤

    September 2, 2011 at 11:37 am |
  373. Geilen

    I think its great that they are remembering the people that lost their life in this inccedent. This has affected many peoples life and families. I think the families ofd the people that die will be thanksful for rememberimg them for so long.

    We should 9/11 because it simbolizes the day that the U.S. almost fell apart. Many citizens died that day. Many heroes also.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:38 am |

    We should remeber the people that died on 9/11 attack because there where all the innocent people that died for no reason.

  377. Nekeysha

    Many people have mixed feelings about the museum, but in my case, i'm proud and happy about it. It brings respect and the memory of how our country suffered a trajedy. The memory also gives us more alert.
    The fact that there artifacts will be seen it will bring great importance to those people.

  380. Brittany

    Many people may think that dispalying 9/11 artifacts may be a good thing but in my opinion, I don't think it is a good thing at all bacuse 9/11 was a time period where many people lost their lives just because of a terrorist attack. Many of the people in the twin towers did not expect to lose their lives.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:40 am |
  381. Calvin

    i think that this is a very perfect idea because of all the memories that the families had and how they lost there family members. I happen to be at the pentagon at the daycare on the day of the 9/11 attacks in d.c. i was glad that the pentagon did a memorial for all of the soldiers and those that lost there lives serving our country. Both of my parents that day where in that build but they both survived that brutal attack.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:55 am |
  382. Maggie

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 because of the people that tried to over throw the killers that tried to destroy important monuments. I also think that the people that over threw the plane that was supposed to hit the White House. Think that they are awesome because they all agreed to kill themselves to save the White House. They are awesome examples and I think that they should be respected.
    I also think that the people that died in the Twin Towers should be respected they were just living normal lives and the killers had to kill them. That’s just sad that the killers would kill themselves to kill millions.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:06 pm |
  383. Gage

    I think we should remember 9/11 because to me the twin towers were the bet thing in new york lats night i was up till ten watching what happen when flicht 162 and flight 167 crashed in to the towers. I do not now why those guys did not like the twin towers but the only way they took over te pane was first they stabed the capten then the assisten capten then they spraed mace locked the doors the bam.
    i was sad to see the towers fall.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:09 pm |
  384. Brenda

    It is important to remember 9/11 because a lot of lives were lost and many families were left grieving and mourning. Something like this cant ever happen again. That is why it is important to remember 9/11.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:09 pm |
  385. Shaylee

    It is important to rember the 9/11 attack because they were the twin towers because they were really popular and a whole bunch of people worked in there and when Osama bin laden bombed it a ton of people died and got thrown out of the window and there were over 3,000 people died from the bomb. And it’s good to rember the people who died because that was somebody’s dad, mom, brother, or sister, etc. And after the 9/11 the world has changed, Osman bin laden died and there has been so much progress to the world. And now that Osman bin laden died there has been a lot of news about his family and about him..

    September 2, 2011 at 12:10 pm |
  386. Ben

    the reason why we should remember 9/11 is it is one of the most scaryest thin ever happen in the country history. what they did turn are country up side down. when 9/11 comes up it makes everone who saw it with their own eyes think of that day when ever on died.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:10 pm |
  387. westin

    It's important to remeber 9/11 because a lot of inicent people died that day. Its also important remeber that it wasent just the world trait center that got targeted. The white house and the pentagon was targeted too. just think of what would of happend if the white house got hit ! the presedent could of got killed. 9/11 was just a big dissaster most kids think that somebody must pay like when Osama BinLaden died sucurity every were went on high aleart like afb ( air force baces) thats why i think it's important to remeber 9/11.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:11 pm |

    It is important to remember 9/11 because it is one of the days America showed that we are independent and always faithful. Many innocent people died, but it is an important day in history to remember.

    9/11 is such a horrible memory for alot of people and familys, but its good that everyone still remembers about it. Sure it was a misserable day, but things happen for reasons, sometimes bad and sometimes good reasons. I personally think we really do need that museum for 9/11 to remember family and friends so that you never will forget about them. Many people lost their love ones that day and still remember it as if it happened yesterday.

    September 2, 2011 at 12:28 pm |

  395. Skylar

    I think that people should remember 9/11 because inoccent peopl died because of other peoples stupid deciescions. and it was a very sad day for many americans.Because they lost family members it is not a very good memory for alot of people but its good people remember it and the people that died on that day.and its almost the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and some people that were still babies or kids parents died or sufferd or got hurt which is not fair or good for anybody everyone should remember the people that died . alot of people still probaly remember it as it was like yesterday. because it was so sad and painful.like i was only one when it happend.im so upset that people would do that. which killed other people.innocent people.and thats why people should reflect on 9/11 ecleast it wasnt them who died other people died for other peoples mistakes.

    The date of 9-11 is so important to remember because it had a direct impact on all of our futures. It made us become more aware of our surroundings. We don't take our safety for granted...or our lives. Remembering 9-11 helps us to care more for our families, friends and the everyday gifts that we have.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:02 pm |

  405. Aaron

    Ever sense 9/11 happended people have been so scared that another attack may happen. I think when this musem is opened people will forget those fears. Where getting through that terrible day, but we are getting better one step at a time. Firefighters, police lost there lifes for us. We should be thankful for what they did for us.

  410. Maggie

    I think that we should remember 9/11 in as many ways as we can, because it's a constant reminder that we could lose everything in a matter of moments, so we should appreciate the things we have and love the people in our lives because we never know when we could lose them.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:36 pm |
  411. Casey

    9/11 was a very devestating day in the United States, but it brought us together as a nation as we worked together through extremely tough times. It put meaning to our nation's name, The UNITED States of America. We must always remember this day and the many people who died for us.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:37 pm |
  412. Cozy

    I remember the moment the towers fell, it will live on in infamy as an attack on democracy and american values. We showed terroists that patriotisim runs deep in every American. I remember all the lives that were lost that day with an indescribable sense of sadness. We should always, always remember. If no one remembers and people begin to forget then history is bound to repeat itself.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:38 pm |
  413. Alex

    As important as it is to remember why we take such drastic security measures, and inspire people to work hard at making America even safer, it is even more important to remember the 10th anniversary to honor all the dads, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, and best friends who died that day.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:40 pm |
  414. Katie

    9/11 is a very important date to remember because it reminds us of our fellow Americans that are fighting over seas for us and how strong we are as a nation. We will never forget the day our freedom and independence was jepardized by an outside force. We need to continue to remember this day to rimnd us how strong we are and how we can overcome anything.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:42 pm |
  415. Tom

    It is extremely important to remember the travesty which transpired on Sept. 11. For those who lost so much, we must remember why we have taken to the protection of freedom, so future generations are not forced through that once more. Although the time has been forever increasing, the pain is still there, we will remember.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:42 pm |
  416. Adrian

    I think it is important to remember one of the most devastating attacks on the United States. So many people lost their loved ones in this terrorist attack and i don't think those people who died should be forgotten. It also reminds us that anyone could die at any moment. It can give us an inside look at what terrorist can plan and how patient they are to plan an attack on the United States. Kids can forget some of these events because they were little i was in first grade when the twin towers fell and sometimes i forget what happened that day. I think that kids who were not a live or two little need to know about this monumental moment in history.

    September 2, 2011 at 1:43 pm |
  417. Molly

    We shouldn't give special attention to this particular anniversary just because it's the tenth. I mean, it's no different from any other year. It was still in the past, and it will still hurt to think about. But why is the tenth anniversary so special? We should always remember. If we forget the past we are bound to repeat it. I do believe that this date requires special attention because of how deeply it effected our country, but really no more than any other anniversary because no matter how long ago it was, the scars still remain the same.

    Dear CNN Student News, We should all remember those who passed as hero's. They all had loved ones and those who thought of them as hero's. I didn't have any loved ones that lived in New York at that time but i do cherish and still remember those who passed in 9/11. When i saw 9/11 the first time on television, my stomach boiled with fear and a little bit of anger too. I thought to myself why did this happen? why the heck did that tourist do such a stupid thing like that? Then i thought to myself and said, i know why they were forced into it, that was there job they had to fulfill. Then looking back at the TV. of those planes that hit the two towers, i realized that the two tourists died themselves.

    I think it is very important because it had changed a lot of lives in the united states.

    It is something we can reflect on. yes it was a sad day for all of us but that was the past and in the future like this 9 11 we need to watch out for something that may hapen. I'm just saying i bet they are plainning something!

    Every year, American families around the world dread the horrible date of 9/11. It puts memories back into our minds of the awful tragedy that swept the nation in under five minutes. My thoughts and prayers will forever be out to the people who lost their lives and out to the families who lost them.

    It is heart breaking to re hear about 9-11. Even though when it happened when I was five, I remember it vividly. I didn't really understand then, but now I realize what I lived through has changed this nation as a whole.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:09 pm |
  424. Ali

    I think that we should remember 9/11 because it was a tragic event for not only our country, but also the whole world. So many people lost their lives, and they should be remembered. I was only in first grade when it happened so I didn't realize how catastrophic an event it was, but ten years later I do.

    I believe that is very important to remember 9/11. As the 10 year anniversary comes up, it is important that we take the time to remember all those who died as victims and heros. As well, for all those who lost loved ones in the attack.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:14 pm |
  427. Marlee

    People should remember 911 because it was a day that everyone had pain inflicted on them one way or another. Many innocent people lost their lives and their bravery should remembered.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:15 pm |
  428. Stone High

    It is important to remember the people that died. Many people lost their lives and we have a duty, as Americans, to remember their stories.

  429. Thyshajuan

    The terrorist attacks of 9/11 were very unsuspected and that that was the reason for all of the shock felt by the families of those who died in those attacks. I also beloeve that to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Ladden was disrespectful even though he caused destruction to our nation. Humans were created to forgive and forget so forget what the terrorist did on 9/11 and live your life. However do not forget the souls lost on that tragic day.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:21 pm |
  430. Emma

    I believe that it is important to not just recognize what happened, but why it happened. If people don't understand the reasons behind the attack, how can they begin to cope with it? I think the memorial newseum is a great idea. It not only commemorates what happened, but helps people understand.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:22 pm |
  431. owen

    It is important to remember 9/11 on the tenth anniversary because we cannot let the events of that day fade away, nor can we lose the memories of the victims lost . By keeping this event in our memories, it will help keep our nation vigilant against any future attempts of terrorism against the US.

    September 2, 2011 at 2:30 pm |

    It was our country that got attacked. It is important to remember the pain we went through so that we can protect our country better.

    This is important because many people died from this deadly attack. Wouldn't you want to be remembered? I think its also important because this is a time when the world stopped and everyone began to cry. I may not remember it but I know how my family felt when they saw how unprotected the twin towers were. This is a sad time.

    September 2, 2011 at 3:18 pm |

    I don't know about you ,but I am very proud of the men and women who fought for our country.They put there lives on the line just to keep our country safe.And for that, I am proud to call myself an american

  437. Abigale

    I think it is important because all of the veterians that served and hepled should be thanked for doing such a terrific job and being so brave to do what they do . They have to expect the unexpected to me though I even think that they were in for a big surprise to get all those calls for 911 and being able to hepl them . But that is why I think we should rember all those people that did what they could do.

    September 2, 2011 at 3:25 pm |

    Well, personally its hard to forget 9/11 because that's my birthday but that's not the reason why I remember it. I remember it because i saw it when i was 5 years old, and for a five year old seeing a plane crash right in to the twin towers which made thousands of good and innocent America's die. It's scary. Know that their are people out there that want to kill you because your proud to be an America. When i got older i learned more and more about what happened on 9/11. I will never forget those people on the planes, who stood up to the terrorists to save other people's lives by giving up theirs. And I believe that the 9/11 Artifacts for the museum idea is brilliant. What i want for my Birthday is for everyone to feel as strongly as I do for 9/11! And I hope that's what this new exhibit will do!

    I made a poem for that day:

    We will not forget
    The thought will always be there
    The horrible plan

    We stood together
    The thought of the world ending
    The pain inside us

    We watched in horror
    The thought of the passengers
    The many lives lost

    We were scared to death
    The thought of the scared jumpers
    The hole in our heart

    We saw the plane crash
    The thought of the brave heroes
    The towers collapsed

    September 2, 2011 at 4:08 pm |

    It is important to remember this day because we need to honor the lives lost and display that Americans are resilent.

  442. Elizabeth

    I think we should remeber the poeple. Who lost their lives on September eleventh, 2001 becuase they didn't what to be kill because they were innocent people. What did they do to Osama bin Laden? They didn' t do nothing to him. I say my prayers to those poeple who lost their lives because of Osama bin Laden actions to the U.S.A . and to the people in the U.S.A.. It makes me sad when people innocent people died because Osama bin Laden actions.

    U.S.A is a postive countery because of the citizens that live in the countery but Osama bin Laden is a negitve citizen in the world because of the action that he did to us but thankfuly his is not a thret anymore because to the world thanks to the Navy seals for killing him!

    When I think of the U.S.A I think of the song I'm Proud To Be An AMERICAN because that is what we are and nothing can stand our way no matter what because we do such grate no extoridary countery.

    It has been 10 whole years since The World Trade center collapsed. We need to remember who died. I think it is a good idea to remember lost ones. I still cant believe it happened!

    September 2, 2011 at 5:00 pm |
  444. Tricia

    It's important to remember so nobody forgets the nation-wide fear and loss when the twin towers were destroyed. We need to remember these so for generations to come we won't allow things to pass importance to our judgement. Also to ensure that the people are taking precautions to prevent another tragedy like that. We as citizens should stand against the evil but as humans let's not be prejudice. There are only hundreds of evil out of the millions of innocent. And we are forgetting our duties as fellow citizens and are judging by first appearances and that is offensive. Remember. But don't let it consume your conscience.

    September 2, 2011 at 5:28 pm |
  445. Halee

    I think that September 11th should be remembered because it's practially a national holiday except we try to remember about the people who died and how innocent they were. I mean like the people that Osama Bin Laden sent to do this have to feel bad but no they don't. Just remember nobody knew that this was gonna happen just be thankful that it wasn't you.

    September 2, 2011 at 5:59 pm |
  446. Lizzy

    We should remember 9/11 because we don't want to let it happen again. This year we will come together as a nation to remember and mourn but also celebrate the lives of almost 3,000 people. Its going to be a day of sadness but also a day of excitement at how far our country has come in 10 years. I was one day short of 5 when it happened and i never met anyone who died there but i will be celebrating with the people in New York City.

    September 2, 2011 at 6:12 pm |
  447. Lizzy

    Its important to remember those who died on 9/11 because they had done nothing wrong, They were murdered. I wish i could thank a few of them because one of them inspired people to make an auditorium for my school. I heard the story of her, she was the only one in her company to not make it out of the south tower and she was about to have a baby. She was a hero to her cooworkers.

    I think its importent to remember and learn from our mistakes in the past so we can make plans for the future. 9/11 is a reminder of what terror is and that we should plan for unfortnate events such as this.

    9/11 is a tragic day in our time in history but it also shows we can be strong and sometimes weak but it reflects on those who sacrificed their lives for others and they need to be remembered as heroes in that day in history

    I was only 2 or 3 years old when this happened, and to this day I still think about how horrible the attacks were. It is important to remember 9/11 because innocent people lost their lives only because someone was trying to freak our country out and terrorize us. Goodbye and good ridance, Osama Bin Laden. 😦

  451. Lindsay

    It's important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attacks because most people lost their lives that day and there was major damage to most of the buildings and that is why it is important to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and we should remember those people who lost their lives and we should pray for them.

    September 2, 2011 at 9:58 pm |
  454. Samantha

    I think that 9/11 made our country stronger and showed everyone that you can do a lot of things to this country, but we will always have the pride and patroism as an American.

    September 2, 2011 at 10:01 pm |

    september 11th will go down as a day in infamy in united states history. i think it is important to remember 9/11 on its 10th anniversary and every anniversary because what happened that day scarred everybody for life. Its important as an american citizen to pay your repsects for all those who lost their lives and their families

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorists attack because that way we can remember the people that died in the attack and the people that lived through the attack. I also thimk it is important because everyon is so thankful that Osama Bin Laden was killed and that he can cause no more trouble!!!!!

    September 2, 2011 at 11:25 pm |
  458. Cana

    I think it is very important to build these kinds of museum, because not only all americans but also people all over the world will be able to visit the museum so they can feel and they won't forget what was happen on 9/11 forever.

    September 2, 2011 at 11:49 pm |
  459. MARIA

    Approximately 3,000 deaths in 9/11 that gives us more than enough reasons to remember the innocent people.And is great to remember the people who went through all that horrifying experienced .And that in those 3,000 people that were affected not just the American people but the whole world.

    September 3, 2011 at 1:32 am |

    We should remember 9/11 because it shows that even when a terrible disaster happens, it does not pull our country apart but instead it brings our country together and makes us stronger. 9/11 was an important part of American history, and a terrible sad day for everyone across the country.

    September 3, 2011 at 7:45 am |

    I think we should remember 9/11 because it reminds us why Americans in Afghanistan and Iraq are dying fighting for us.

    September 3, 2011 at 8:19 am |
  462. Maria

    I think we should remember those who died because they did not deserve to die. I think we should not have school on the 11th of Septmber so we can remember those who died in the terrorist attack. Around this time we all watch shows about the attack and it makes me want to cry because I hate to think about all of the people who died and how devestaded their familys were and are. Those of you who have had people die in 9/11 you are in my prayers!!!!!!! 🙂

    My dad's father whom i never met was a firefighter and he helped in 9/11 he did not die in 9/11 he died of a heart attack and i never met him so i still thank him in my prayers for helping the people who did live!!!!! 🙂

    What happened on 9/11 was horrible and many people died because of this. This date is not only a historical event, but a day to remember and cherish those who died from rather helping their community or from innocence. We also need to thank those who helped during the attack.

    I know it was a terrible day.I feel bad for the people in the airplanes, and in the twin towers.I wish those terriosts didn't do that to the world trade center.I think we should all remember 9/11.It was a real sad day.

  469. Evan

    I think it is very important to remember 9/11. It brought Americans together to fight the war against terrorism. It's just so sad that it cost so many lives to realize this is a huge problem. It is something that changed the way we fly, and how we are able to fly. It also changed New York's skyline forever.

    September 3, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
  470. Julia

    I've been to ground zero with my mom and grandparents. They told me all about the lives that were lost that day ten years ago, and I couldn't help crying. We should remember that day for all the people who gave up their lives, and to the innocent people's families who have lost so much.

    September 3, 2011 at 2:13 pm |
  471. Sydney

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 on its 10th anniversary because it is a very important part of American history, and it claimed the lives of so many innocent people. Many extra security and safety procedures are now taking place because of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

    September 3, 2011 at 2:13 pm |
  472. Elizabeth

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 on its 10th anniversary because of the bravery and courage of the many individuals who jeopardized or lost their lives trying to save people. It is important to commemorate and honor those people for all of the great things they did.

    September 3, 2011 at 2:24 pm |
  473. Henry

    Not remembering 9/11 would be like not remembering our United States presidents. 9/11 was by far the worst emotional and mental disaster in our nation's history.

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because it shows how far U.S. security has come since then, and it shows how Americans will sacrifice their own lives for others.

  477. Ben

    It is important to remember 911 because it was a horrible learning experience for the world. After 9/11, the entire world stepped up their airport security procedures and made more agencies work on terrorism. Remembering the people who lost their lives is also very important, and it is great that they are almost done with the new World Trade Center. Thousands of other innocent people died from this incident in Iraq due to the new War on Terrorism. This was a sad event, and we hope it will never happen again.

    September 3, 2011 at 2:50 pm |

    When I heard about 911 from my mom I felt really bad for the people that got killed in the airplane when the terrorists hit the World Trade Center collapsed. All of us should rember September 9th because almost half of the world died because of the families. Last year I heard that a ton of motorcycles wore going to Indianapolis with a huge memorial prop last year in September???

    September 3, 2011 at 3:10 pm |
  480. Cassandra

    I think that it is a time that is in need to be remembered. I still can't believe that it happened and it is so sad that we had to deal with that. I hope that we can all be able to honor the brave men and women that passed and were hurt then. God Bless America! and god bless the family of those lost.

    September 3, 2011 at 3:12 pm |
  481. Mriya

    I think it's important to remember the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to show everyone that those who suffered will never be forgotten, and that this event has not made America weaker; it has only made us stronger. To prove this, look at how airport and defense technology have improved. America will never forget 9/11 or the people who suffered because of it. 9/11 has made its sad mark on American history.

    September 3, 2011 at 3:38 pm |
  482. Cassidy

    Remembering 9/11 is important because it is one of the most dramatic and worst terrorist attacks of all time. It changed American history, family life, and our country's life.

    September 3, 2011 at 3:41 pm |
  483. Julian

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 to celebrate the lives of the many brave people who risked their lives to save others. It also reminds the police how lacking security was prior to 9/11. We also need to remember the courageous passengers who stopped the plane from crashing into the White House.

    September 3, 2011 at 3:47 pm |
  484. Julian

    It is important because innocent people died in those plane crashes.

  485. Jyssica

    I think it’s a good idea to remember 9/11 because there opening a museum that took 10 years to build and the things that survived in the attack. This was a tragic memory that will be in our hearts forever. All the firefighter and police men that help during the attack should be rewarded for all the things they did during 9/11. We should remember 9/11 because that day changed the world for life. It will never be the same after the terrorists attack twin towers. Also the people that died during the attack and tried to save America as an independent country

    September 3, 2011 at 3:53 pm |
  486. Samanatha

    I think that 9/11 definately made our country stronger. I also think that we shouldn't just mourn and never do something for all the people that died. I think that the memorial that is being made that is taller than the original ones shows the world what true patritism is, and that there are people that destroy, and then there are people who pick up the remains and rebulid.

    September 3, 2011 at 4:42 pm |
  487. cailee

    we should remember 9/11, because its important to remind the people that a bunch of innocent people died without any time to spend with there kids or wife. 😦 😦 😦

  488. matthew

    I think we should remember 9/11 because thats the day the world changed forever. I was not alive back then but from what i see and hear now it was a major impact for the US and familys that lost someone to the crashing of the World Trade Center. The death of Osama Bin Ladan may have been a great achivement but its probally not the last of the terrorism attacks. As always the USA will not give up without a fight. Praise our troops and lives lost in the war.

    September 3, 2011 at 9:19 pm |

    It's important to remember the 9/11 terrorists attacks so that we can remember the deaths and hopefully try to prevent future attacks like these.

  490. Krista

    I think that it is important to remember the 9/11 attacks because even though it might not be your family, a bunch of people died, and its important that we think of them and and be sad for them.

    September 4, 2011 at 9:57 am |
  491. Lane

    As a student, I think we should remember 9/11 because so many people died that were so innocent. It should be remembered in order to give those innocent people justice. 9/11 marks a huge day in history and we should remember it. It has left a fragil spot in our hearts and that can't be changed.

    September 4, 2011 at 10:21 am |
  492. Miranda

    It is important to remember these people because of them, we have the ability to fight back and not get scared when the time comes that terrorists do attack again, if that were to happen. We also need to remember them because they all had people who loved them and there were people in there that some may never forget.

    September 4, 2011 at 12:57 pm |
  493. shyli

    We need to rember 9/11 because innocent people died for no reason. we need to honor there deaths. This is what started the war we are in now. They arent fighting for nothing. This day will be remberd in history. A day that anyone who was alive will not forget. It brough the us together.

    September 4, 2011 at 4:09 pm |
  494. Brendan

    I think its important to remeber 9/11 becuase that it happened in the Mainland of the USA. not in a foregin country.

  495. Arim

    Many people in America would remember that 9.11 terror was very freeky. It was a huge one. Many people died because of that. It even effected other countries such as where I live. I still remember what happened that day, even I am not an American. To remember people who were dead that day is a good thing. By reflecting this huge event, people in Earth would be able to think once again, that terrorism should not happen anymore.

    It's brutal to remember 9/11 to people whose family member died on that day, but it's also important because everyone must know what happened to them and share their feelings as same American.

    We should remember because many people lost their lives innocent people who didnt expect a thing who were working at their seats as sudden death hit the towers
    we should remember because of those many innocent people who died that didnt deserve to loose their lives.. and remember the family's of the people who died....
    Its totally sad.... we should remember ...
    Never forget

  498. Katrina

    I think thats why they made books about 9/11, because they wanted us to remember the devestation and the thought of losing a life. We should rember this day, and personally if I could, I would ask the people who planned the crash, why they did it...

    September 5, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  499. Christa

    I think it's good to remember those who gave there lives,but won't it make the terrorist mad that we killed their leader? Is isn't bad enough that we announced it on TV?

    September 5, 2011 at 12:48 pm |
  500. John

    I think you should remember 9/11 on it's 10th anniversary because 9/11 helped bring our nation closer together. It also made the F.B.I.

    September 5, 2011 at 1:50 pm |
  501. Ro'Myrus

    We Should remember 911 because thats when some people family died and when we lost some of our love ones.We even lost the world Trade Center so it is very important for us to remember this day and keep it dear in our hearts for the ones who lives are now gone over something that was not even worth dieing for

    September 5, 2011 at 2:36 pm |
  502. Emily

    I think we should always remember this day in history because, lot of people died from the crash, and the clean up! Its not fare for people just to forget about this!

    September 5, 2011 at 2:55 pm |
  503. Anthony

    It is important to remember those thousand of people who dead in this attack because, it is a way to show our respect for this tradegy ,to show that we also suffer for all the victims and finally, remember that good people are stronger than terrorist and we can trust in the gouverment !

    September 5, 2011 at 6:04 pm |
  504. Cecilia

    It's important to remember 9/11 because of all of the innocent that died on that tragic day. Humanity needs to learn from these mistakes and do all we can to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again.

    September 5, 2011 at 9:54 pm |
  505. McLain

    Its so important to remember september 11th because so many innocent people died and i think Osama's life did not make up for what he did to this many people. The only good part about this is we are coming over the terrorist and building a memorial for everyone who didnt deserve to die in this horrible event.

    September 5, 2011 at 10:01 pm |
  506. Hannah

    I think it is very important to remember 9/11. It was a day that is engraved into our minds forever. Even though it was a very sad day for many people, we need to remember that day because many people gave their own lives to protect others. Many people died from this attack, and no one will ever forget it.

    September 5, 2011 at 11:05 pm |
  507. Abby

    I come from the US, And i was only a baby when this happen to USA. I think that this is very imporant to remember. One, We have had many attacks from alot of places and we remember every single one. Second its a way of remembering thoses that died to save someone elses life, everyone that jumped from the tower, we remember every single one of those people. So we must honor and take a new look at this, that it may help us be prepared for more attacks.

    September 6, 2011 at 2:23 am |
  508. kara

    i think we should remember the pleople who got killed and the people that lived and the peolpe that fight for our world. my dad was one of the alarm people i didnt get to see him for 30 day or longer he was on doomsday talking about his story.

    September 6, 2011 at 8:09 am |
  509. Anneke

    It is important to remember 9/11 because it was a monumental day in this country's history. It brought together national pride and is a way remembering those who were lost.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:05 am |
  510. Allie

    I think the important question to ask is: Why WOULDN'T it be important to remember 9/11 on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks? It affected so many lives of innocent people and so many things have changed because of that attack, it deserves to be remembered.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:06 am |
  511. Rachel

    9/11 is important for everybody to remember, it effected the lives of so many people in this country. It's important to remember getting through that time in history, and recognize our losses.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:06 am |
  512. Gretchen

    I think that remembering 9/11 helps us move on. Move on with the loss and worry that we all have on our minds. 9/11 made us realize that we are not the only thing on Earth and that there are others out there that don't like us. 9/11 doesn't always have to be bad, there some memories that everyone remembers because 9/11 proved that there are real heroes.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:08 am |
  513. Holli

    I think we should remember 9/11 because so many people died in the attack when they were just innocent people working in their offices. The attack has had airports change their security to make it safer. It also affected peoples lives of the family of the ones who died in the attack. Its just good to remember all of the people who lost their lives in the attack, or trying to save people in the attack.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:10 am |
  514. Lizzie

    I believe it's important to remember 9/11 on the upcoming 10th anniversary because we lost so many on this tragedy. No one knew it was going to happen...No one knew the pain and suffering it would cause to those who were closet to those lost. But we will honor this day whether or not we lost someone close to us. Because on this day, we all became one as people. We forgot about all the racism, the prejudous and all the hate. America became one to honor those who were lost. And aside this horrible event, everyone will be praying and wishing for those who died that day. R.I.P 9/11.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:10 am |
  515. Rylynn

    I think it is important because we are honoring the loss of loved ones, family or family friends, strangers, and the fire fighters that fought to save the many lives in danger. This is a country wide day that most people appreciate. Although not all of us were there, we are all still very much affected. I think it was an eye opener and that we did not really know what we had till it was gone. I believe that it shows how America works because we had to pick up all the pieces(literally and mentally) and work our way up from that devastating tragedy and move on from that. We re built some buildings, cleaned up the mess, and now we have a day of silence every September 11th to show how important, sad, and tragic this was to all of us Americans.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:15 am |
  516. Kayla

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 because it wasn't only a day when people were killed by a horrific act, but also a day when America was able to show that we are strong and united enough to continue on and save thousands of lives in the future.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:18 am |
  517. Sydney

    The attacks on 9/11 should be remembered in remembrance of those who were killed on that day, and in honor of the families that have lived on past that day. The event was and still is very traumatic for people all over the world. It is important that we reminisce on the day that help to bond our country.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:18 am |
  518. Jessie

    It's important because we need to commemorate the innocent and courageous people that died in the attack.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:20 am |
  519. Will

    9/11 is not about the event, but about what happened after. It's about the recovery, the strength of American perseverance. We remember that, even after such an event, we as a country have to ability to overcome what the world throws at us and return as a proud nation.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:20 am |
  520. Annie

    I remember the day that 9/11 happened. I was in a kindergarten class then and didn't realize the full extent of what had happened. I don't really have strong feelings about this, but I do believe we need to remember and pay respects to those who died innocently. 10 years marks how far our country has come since then.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:26 am |
  521. Claire

    Remembering history is so important. We can prevent future mistakes and learn to be a better society. 9/11 was a huge day in history, and we can honor the brave people who witnessed the tragic event by just giving a thought to them, and remembering.

    September 6, 2011 at 11:09 am |
  522. Cheyenne

  523. luisa

    I think we should remember it because it was a the worst thing that happened.I cant remember it because i was still a little kid.

    September 6, 2011 at 11:12 am |
  524. Lisa

    Our class is paying tribute by writing all of the names of the victims on boards and constructing a small replica of the twin towers. Some students were 3 years old at the time and are now able to pay their respects as young adults and share this with others.

    September 6, 2011 at 12:03 pm |
  525. Katelin

    I believe we should remember 9/11 because so many people died, and families have had a rough time. No one should have to go through that, and that is really why would should remember the attack of 9/11.

    September 6, 2011 at 12:58 pm |
  526. Tolerie

    Nine Eleven is so sad I mean why would they do this to us because people died, because of this even the people who tried to get people out. The twin towers were huge and tall I bet people loved to look at it, but when it was destroyed they maybe did not want to look at it, now it is called the twin towers. So I am glad that we are celebrating 9-11 because we are also celebrating the people who gave up their lives for other people to survive.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:02 pm |
  527. Derek

    We should remember 9/11 people,and kids we lost that day.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:06 pm |
  528. Kike

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because a lot of people's families had died in the attack. Some people lost parents, siblings, friends, etc. Also we should remember those who tried to save the people as well. Altogether we should remember everyone from that day.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:06 pm |
  529. Nikko

    I think it is important that we need to remember 9/11 because we need to remember the people who died.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm |
  530. Stenipher

    I think its important because, we need to remember the people that died on this day and for the families who lost their loved ones.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm |
  531. Pedro

    I think we should remember 9/11 because it was a tragic moment and shows we can overcome anything.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm |
  532. cindy

    it really is important to remember 9/11 because its a day when millions of peoples lives were lost and they were innocent we should honor the people who died in 9/11

    September 6, 2011 at 1:08 pm |
  533. Zianna

    I think we should remenber 9/11 because that's the day millions of people die,and we care about those people(inoccent people) people who don't hurt.When those people die their family get's hurt,and depressed over there loved one's.We celebrate 9/11 because we give up our live to show we care for them sacrificing their lives for us.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:08 pm |
  534. Justin

    I feel we should remember the 9/11 attacks as it has brought the United states into the longest war in American history. Many people died that day and you can also tally up the casualties from the war as it was caused by the terrorist attacks ten long years ago.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:12 pm |
  535. bobert

    I think for the 9/11 they should let the fire fighters come to the big thing that is going on it makes a lot of people mad that they cant go

    September 6, 2011 at 1:12 pm |
  536. Inanda

    My reaction was shocked and scary. It was scary to me on how the towers were coming down.

    9/11 should always be remembered in this world.It was a great thing are world but now it's all gone.But we still have stuff from 9/11 that will always be with us.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:13 pm |
  538. Nigel

    I think we should remember that specific date because the innocent people that died on that plane are now remembered in the U.S.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:15 pm |
  539. Ashley

    We all should remember what happened on 9\11 because a lot of peoples families were killed. Also a lot of people have changed because of what happened like airport security is different we have to go through metal detectors and our stuff has to be put through a kind of metal detector also. Just everyone seems more cautious and around people and everyone is looking out more. Even though a lot of people were sad it is also kind of good. Because now we know that could happen again and we are more safe around stuff like that. But also it is a bad thing that, that happened because so many innocent people died so many good people like little children maybe even babies were killed and that should have never happened but it did so we should just remember this day and think of how bad people can really be and just watch out for those who are really bad people

    September 6, 2011 at 1:16 pm |
  540. Danae

    Recently Osama bin Laden was killed and he killed many people. He was the number 1 terrorist. Two important buildings collapsed killing many people on the plane, working in the buildings, and just near the buildings, all on September 11, 2001.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:16 pm |
  541. Brittany

    It is a tragedy that so many people died 😦 .Many people lost innocent family members. It is important to remember that sad day.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:17 pm |
  542. Emily

    We should all remember the horrid event that happened on 9/11 because not only did did it kill innocent people, but it killed the survivors hearts. Knowing that they survived but others didn't. The alarms didn't help most people and it also ruined many landmarks and tourist hot spots:) Every year on September 11 I remind myself how lucky I am that the people I care most about had nothing to do with this, but that of course doesn't make me feel better. Because I still know that other people out there were affected because the people they care about were hurt or were included in this disaster. It makes me feel sad but also annoyed. Osama Bin Laden, why would he want to do this? The people that you do not know or care about have people that know and care about them. But one of them isn't you, and just because it isn't you, it shouldn't mean you don't care what happens to them! The idea of bin laden killing those innocent people is horrible and makes me feel so bad for those millions of people still alive today. The people that are not alive because of 9/11 should be remebered and cherished through out the years and to me, they will always be remembered as heroes.

    September 6, 2011 at 1:17 pm |
  543. Ashley

    We should remember this day because so many people helped out because they saw a lot of people were in danger and they helped out even though they might have been killed so lets remember this day on 9\11

    This terrorist attack was extrememly horrible. it happens to be 7 days after my birthday (September 4th), and whenever it is the month of September, I think of planes crashing into the Twin Towers and killing all those people. 😦
    Osama Bin Laden deserved to die for killing so many people!

    September 6, 2011 at 3:14 pm |

    I think remembering 9/11 is Important, You mourn for the Families that lost a family member. Since Bin laden is dead, People have finally got justice and feel satisfied, But what i don't get is why they decided to do a terrorist attack. I feel sorrow for lots of Family's that lost someone. Mourn for the Family's. Because they will be remembering the day they lost their family member for the rest of there life.

    September 6, 2011 at 3:16 pm |

  561. Morgan

    I think that they should have not bombed us like everyone else... But it's basically the same opinion as everyone else so I won't take up too much space... But I think they should at least feel a little remorse.

    September 6, 2011 at 4:03 pm |
  562. Jaclyn

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 because that was a very sad day. That day many people died and families were torn apart. It was unfair. And I will always remember that day.

    I think its important to remember 9/11 because this was very tragic but its also something to thank because we don't have to deal with that now and hopefully don't have to soon.

    September 6, 2011 at 4:06 pm |
  565. Nicole

    I don't think it's right to celebrate someone's death, even if it's Osama Bin Laden. I wish all the families of the victims of 9/11 a very special prayer. I'm glad that they have finally made a memorial for all the people that have lost their lives in 9/11. ❤

    September 6, 2011 at 4:08 pm |

  575. Brandon

    I think it is important to rememeber 9/11 when it happened 10 years ago because we are going to finish building a new big world trade center and I think that building is for trade and to remember all of the people who died.

    September 6, 2011 at 4:44 pm |
  576. Jessica

    Imagine you're in the octagon and every one is screaming in panic and you don't have any clue what is happening. I bet that was how many people felt on September 11. It's very important to remember what happened on that day for many reasons. First, We must remember our past to keep our world a better place. Next, we need to remember the lives we lost and hope they rest in peace. Finally, we must not repeat what happened for the safety of our country. Now, imagine as every one is running in panic and you just found out what was going on. I feel we should always remember September 11.

    September 6, 2011 at 4:49 pm |
  577. Georgina

    I think we should remember 9/11 because the terrorists attacked and many people died because of it. We are safe now that there isn't people killing one another and we are protected. Now so many people are gone from those horrible terrorists and their horrible attack. Osama Bin Laden deserves the death he got for hurting so many innocent people. All of the humans were good people and didn't have to die like that so soon in their lives. They shouldn't of killed so many people any way. They had no right to come here and kill who ever they pleased to kill. He was a very bad person and didn't deserve to get what he wanted he got what he needed and deserved! we should be proud he is gone...now we are safe and protected by so many people who care about them, their family and their country!

    September 6, 2011 at 4:53 pm |
  578. jake

    it is important because it could happen again so if it does happen again some people can help the event. They want to remind people that have died in the passed by tarrist. they what the day to remember because of all of the killings. they want the tarrist to stop the killing in the usa. they want the world to now that 9/11 is not for killing.they remind us when they want the us to not be scared when this happens. they want the usa to be scared of the tarrist.

  580. Wheeler

    From the stand point of a teacher, many high school age students were in kindergarten when 9/11 attack s occurred. Students must be informed in such a way to understand how our country has changed and why the war on terrorism is so important. Thank you CNN for all you do to assist us in the classroom.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:02 pm |
  581. Conor

    Why should we remember 9/11. Thousands of people died and it might have been one of our family members and if not they are Americans and other people from around the world that died for no reason, it was just because god told the hijacker to kill them and strike fear into our hearts

    September 6, 2011 at 5:04 pm |
  582. Ramon

    I think we should send our sympathy to those who have lost family or loved ones. It should be in rememberance of the ones who dies and there loved ones.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:07 pm |
  583. lukas

    9/11 should be remembered because it was a day of fear and destruction on where we can never forgive the attackers against us and to remember the ones who we lost

    September 6, 2011 at 5:10 pm |

    We should remember 9/11 in honor of our loved ones who lost their lives.9/11 was a time America didn't feel safe anymore. The feeling that we felt was the worst feeling ever.Hopefully we wont feel that feeling ever again

    September 6, 2011 at 5:10 pm |
  585. Sydney

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 so that we can pray for all of the victims as well as their families that were involved in that horrible day. We want to continue to recognize the heroes of 9/11 that worked tirelessly and saved people's lives and those heroes that continue to do this every day.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:10 pm |
  586. nate

    I think that 9/11 is a historic day because if we didn`t have 9/11 then we wouldn`t have sworn to defeat AL Queida. If we didn`t swear to defeat them then other countries would b e affected too.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:11 pm |
  587. arnez

    we should call it a holiday because all of those people died.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:11 pm |

    It's just messed up that it happened it has hurt a lot of families and friends

    September 6, 2011 at 5:12 pm |
  589. Alaina

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because soldiers gave their lives to save us and it proves that we can rebuild our country after it fell to the ground.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:12 pm |
  590. COLTON

    I think is is bad that it happend

    September 6, 2011 at 5:12 pm |
  591. Eric

    We should remember 9/11 cause the lives that sacrificed themselves or died in the accident. It was a very tragic moment and we can pay our respects. Or our sorrow.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:12 pm |
  592. Jacob

    I think it should be celebrated cause thousands of people died. Im glad there rebuilding it with a better structure so It cant fall down, I fell sorry for all the people that died.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:13 pm |
  593. Christian

    I think it is important to remember 9/11 because it was a very sad day in America's history. It was a great shock to our nation. The events of that day created patriotism and really did show in hard times, Americans pull together. It does show that although we are hurt, we get back up, and oppose the evil. Go USA!

    September 6, 2011 at 5:14 pm |
  594. Gage

    It is important to remember 9/11 on the tenth anniversary because we need to look at how we have rebuilt ourselves as a country. The terrorist plot was committed to tear us and our allies apart so would become weaker. That did not happen, if anything 9/11 forced us to join together as an international community. We were able to this year kill the person who was in charge of the attack, Osama Bin Laden, and that just shows our strength again the terrorist organization.

    September 6, 2011 at 5:27 pm |
  595. Jamairah

    I think its in portant to remeber the 9/11 attacks because first, that was the day when the Twin Towers were destoried. And also because the man who did all of this, has now been punshied. for life.

    September 6, 2011 at 6:27 pm |
  596. Hannah

    I think it's important because many innocent lives were lost due to the fact that we weren't expecting anything. If we were more aware we probably could have saved many of those people.

    September 6, 2011 at 6:42 pm |
  597. Janski

    I think it is important to celebrate 9/11 because we can learn from our mistakes and to move on from that point in time. It is also to remember the ones that sacraficed their lives and the lives that were lost

    September 6, 2011 at 10:02 pm |
  598. Chris

    I Think If we Forget 9/11 We Forget The Loss of thousands of Lives and The Sacrifice On Flight 93, The New York Fire Teams that Never Returned From The Towers And The US Service Men and Women Lost In The Pentagon. So I Think We Should Never Forget 9/11.

    September 6, 2011 at 10:30 pm |
  599. Hector

    I think we should all remember the 9/11 because we can memorize all the people who died and went through a hard time in the 9/11

    We should remember 9/11 because many people lost their lives for our freedom.

    September 7, 2011 at 8:44 am |
  601. Jamie

    We should remember the people who died because some of them decided to help others escape and they lost their lives. The firefighter known as the guy in the red bandana saved 10 people from the twin towers.

    September 7, 2011 at 8:46 am |
  602. Colton

    We should remember 9/11 because the planes crashed, and many homes and shelters got destroyed, they had less food.

    September 7, 2011 at 8:48 am |
  603. Bridgett

    It's important to remember 9/11 because, if forgotten, it could very well repeat itself. We Americans are quick to forget tragedies but luckily their are a few who stuck to their guns and did something about it. The last thing Osamba Bin Laden saw was an American Seal 6.

    September 7, 2011 at 9:56 am |
  604. logan

    I think it is important to remember that date in history because if we forget that date we forget part of history,and every one needs to learn some type of history from 9-11.It is also important because we have to keep that history in our heads and our teachers in our schools need to keep teaching it and never give up teaching what happend in 9-11.

    September 7, 2011 at 11:47 am |
  605. natalya

    i think we should rememeber 9/11 because that was the day when people lost lots of lives an d both of the twin towers were destroyed

  606. Taylor

    I don't think 9/11 was fair. People risked their lives for us to be in the seat we are in today. For all of the army men that fought for our country! Osama Benladen is gone now so we have nothing to worry about. We have a great presdient that will keep our country safe. On the day of 9/11 the world trade center collapsed and also the twin towers! im sure lots of people have good memories from the twin towers ):

    September 7, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  607. michaela

  610. Reagen

    I think it is important to remember the terrorist attacks of 9/11 because many families lost relatives and millions of people lost there lives. We should remember 9/11 because it has effected all of use physically and mentally.

    September 7, 2011 at 2:53 pm |
  611. Nichole

    I think it's important to remember this day not only because of the people we lost, but our future generations need to know the sacrifices we made to maintain our freedom.Yes, it was a horrific ordeal, but it is something we overcame as a whole.

    September 7, 2011 at 5:18 pm |
  612. Calissa

    I feel that September 11 is important to remember because it was a tragic devastation to our country. It made us feel unsafe about our country and many inocent people were killed and or severly hurt. It wasn't only people in the twin towers and the pentagon that were killed. There were firefighters and policemen that were trying to help the situation that lost their lives. The U.S. will never be the same after that very sad day in history.

    September 7, 2011 at 5:43 pm |
  613. Oxana

    I think people should remember this day because it was a day that lots of people died and family members are sad about. It feels bad,and feels heart broken like some one tore out your heart out of you. Also it wasn't peoples fault that died on 9/11and but the people that did not die were lucky this time but maybe next time they won't. ='(

    September 7, 2011 at 5:56 pm |
  614. Kody

    When 9/11 happend over 3,000 people died because of Osama bin Laden I think he desevers to die for what he did and on May 1st he was brought to justice and it was one of most happiest days of my life.

    September 7, 2011 at 6:11 pm |
  615. jordan

    i think we should because this was a verry important day no one will ever forget and alot of inncocent people lost there lives and this should teach us not to thank our freedom for granted

    September 7, 2011 at 6:49 pm |
  616. claire

    I think it is important to remember the 9/11 attacks because there were a lot of people that died that day tring to save their country for us.

    September 7, 2011 at 7:47 pm |
  617. Aspen

    It is important for people to remember 9/11, so we know that certain thing's such as terrriosm do occur in the U.S, and so that we can keep the children and adults of the feature aware of certain things like this.

    September 7, 2011 at 8:27 pm |
  618. Xuled

    It is important to remember September 11 because victims of the attack were not the only ones affected, but our firefighters, police men, and soldiers who were trying to save as many lives as they could.

    September 7, 2011 at 9:24 pm |
  619. Amanda

    I think that the 10th anniversary of 9/11 is very important because this year is one of the most important in remembering what happened that day. People look back and say "wow. that was 10 years ago already? it doesn't seem that way." Remembering and finding out what happened on 9/11 is the best way to honor everyone who died that day. Common courtesy for this event is simply caring about what happened.

    September 7, 2011 at 9:26 pm |
  620. kanako

    Remembering 9/11 is so important because we shouldn't brought about it again. And it's a good chance that we think about world piece.

    September 8, 2011 at 2:03 am |
  621. Amy

    it's sad to think about the people who died that day, and we should be happy we weren't there, but those people who died need a day to be remembered, and honored.

    September 8, 2011 at 7:14 am |
  622. Brie

    I think we should all honer those who died in 9/11. Men, women, and children. They all died for us and they did not die in vane. We shuold be thankful to all the innocent lives who died for us. Our contry has changed because of that.

    September 8, 2011 at 8:00 am |
  623. Cade

    Because it will bring us together and we know it wont happen again

    September 8, 2011 at 8:07 am |

    9/11 needs to be remembered, for those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it.

    September 8, 2011 at 9:59 am |
  626. willis

    I was only a year old when that happened.I didn't know about this until a few years ago. It's sad to think that so many troops lost their lives. 😦

    September 8, 2011 at 10:33 am |
  627. Ci-Ci

    I'm from the u.s.a and i think we should remember 9/11 because all those people that lost there lives need to be remembered. It was a big shock, and the people that got hurt, killed, or left homeless didn't have a chance.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:34 am |
  628. sam

    I think we should remember 9/11 because that was a turning point in history

    Bin laden deserved to die for killing so many people .

    September 8, 2011 at 10:36 am |
  630. Sean

    I think it its important because we have to remember all the people that died and helped. Also prey about the people and other stuff that happened to them. I was one when this happened so I don't remember what happened, but we have to help the other peoples families that has happened to.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:37 am |
  631. Jace

    I Think it's important that we discuss this because The people are amazing for this situation and we wish that they were all Ok and alive. Plus this shouldn't have happened because the people did nothing wrong and we should remember this because it was one of the most dangerous,horrible attacks ever in History!!! So thanks to everyone who did help us and we just want everything to be ok

    September 8, 2011 at 10:39 am |
  632. Cassidy

    I think that this is one of the most important events in the United States history. I always wonder why the people would do this even if their from a different country or if they have different beliefs theres still no reason to do this.If we did this im sure they wouldnt ike it either. I was only one when this happened but as i was growing up i was learning about this event and at a very young age i still knew it was a very bad thing. Everyone should thank the people that risked their lives to help save some of the survivers.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:39 am |
  633. Daniela

    I think that it is important to remember 9/11 ,because this was one of the most disastrous attack ever.And it is important to remember all the people that died.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:39 am |
  634. David

    I feel sorry whom lost their lives in 911 😦 and i was one years old. THANK GOD FOR THE ONES WHO SURVIVED 911!!!!!!!!!!!

  635. Alissa

    i was only one when it happened. The horrible day when lots of people died. Of coarse i was only one, and didn't even know what happened, but if I was older i would have understood, and had a broken heart as other people did. I hope the families of the attack and had lost loved ones have regained there lives, and be happy. I have a lot of feelings about it (most sad), but they thought we would keep our heads down, that we would never come back, but guess what: we are still stronger then ever.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:40 am |
  636. Fawn

    I think it is so terrible that all of those people had to die.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:40 am |
  637. Kena

    I think its important to remember because the solidiers were fighting for us while we just sit here and have fun. I think its good that Osama Bin Laden died because he just killed everyone.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:41 am |
  638. Rocky

    I think you should remember all of the vetrens and fire fiters who died.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:41 am |
  639. Chance

    9/11 was a horrible time for the U.S. There are still are memories of the attack.We recovered, but it is still a tragic time for some people.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:41 am |
  640. spencer

    I think summer of 9/11 was bad and summer of 9/11 and osama bin ladan disrved to die

    September 8, 2011 at 10:41 am |
  641. Stephen

    Osama Bin Landen deserved to die because it was on my sisters birthday on the day when the twin towers got destroyed and thousands of people died on that day.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:42 am |
  642. Mitchell

    I think it is very important to remember 9/11 because that was a very scary times for family members with loved ones in the scene. I also think the same because that is part of the reason why most of the people in the USA. THANK YOU ALL that helped clean up the disaster.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    September 8, 2011 at 10:42 am |
  643. Callie

    The attack of 9/11 happened when I was really little so i don't remember it,but when I learned more about it I really started to appreciate the soldiers who died that day.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:44 am |
  644. willis

    that's kinda sad

    September 8, 2011 at 10:44 am |
  645. Terri

    I think it is important for us to remember so we understand why some of rights have to be restricted by the Government. It is their job to protect our Lifes, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness and therefore we must remember that our government has a job to do for our own protection against attacks like those on 9/11.

    September 8, 2011 at 12:16 pm |
  646. Patrick

    It's important to remember how much it brought us together

    September 8, 2011 at 1:01 pm |

  648. Alex

    9/11 was one of the most pivotel events in the history.Its impact will be felt for years to come.Yet many people are initially very skeptical. Some of the 9/11 timeline facts below are very hard to believe. Yet remember that each entry is reported by respected major media sources and can easily be verified by clicking on the links provided to the original source. After seeing the importance of what's being hidden, you will very likely want to join in working together and building things.

    September 8, 2011 at 5:07 pm |
  649. Gabi

    Its important to revive the day because it is the day America was reminded that we are united as one. God Bless families that suffered on September 11, 2001 and for the rest of their lives.

    September 8, 2011 at 5:07 pm |
  650. Caleb

    I was only 4 when that happend so I have no memory of that. But I have learned a lot about it. Its good that they got the guy who coused that.

    September 8, 2011 at 5:21 pm |
  651. Charles

    I think it's important to remember more then just the date of 9/11 but how people reacted around the country and the crash areas. To see people coming together and caring for eachother was a great thing and I hope we feel that again on this 9/11/11.

    September 8, 2011 at 5:47 pm |
  652. Dinah

    I think that we need to remember September 11 because it shows that no matter what happens to us we Americans can over come it. But it also shows that we also are weak but we can come over any challenge that is relevant.

    September 8, 2011 at 6:12 pm |
  653. Halie

    I watched the live footage that CNN put together in social studies. Even though I was only two then it still matters to me.

    I think it is inportant to remember because that was one of the days that the U.S. was changed forever. Thousands of lives were lost and It would be hard to forget, especially to those who lost their loved ones. God bless America and hope that this tragedy never happens again.

    September 8, 2011 at 7:34 pm |
  654. Halie

    I hope this day is never forgotten. It was a devastating moment and it affected all of us. The way the people reacted to the people jumping from some of the highest stories in the World Trade Center and the way they reacted as they were coming down and as the debris raced towards them. Thousands of lives were lost and even more affected. I hope we can remember this day even a century from now.

    September 8, 2011 at 7:40 pm |
  655. Erol

    I think we need to remember 9/11 because it the day all those innocent people died for us for no reason, I think we need to take our time this Sunday to honor those who have fallen for us.

    September 8, 2011 at 8:23 pm |
  656. Antwoinette

    It’s important to remember 9/11 because if we don’t history; has a habit of repeating it’s self. So many irreplaceable lives were lost on that day. So many families were shook to the core, this isn’t something that will take a few years to get over, for most people it will take a life time. This attack brought America together like it has never been before, but in some ways it also tore America apart. When people see other who are of Arab descent, almost always they get defensive or have pre-conceived notions about them. As Americans we still have to respect others, just because one extreme Arab terrorist group hurt us, doesn’t mean Arab Americans will; most people fail to realize that.

    September 8, 2011 at 8:47 pm |
  657. jennifer

    i think we need to remember 9/11 beacuse it was said for all those people who die and kid shoud know about the past. people sould feel bad about that and how many people risk ther lives to save other people

    September 8, 2011 at 10:26 pm |
  658. Kristin

    I don't remember 9/11 because i was only 3 when it happened, but I still feel like we should remember it. It showed that us Americans can be heroes. I feel for the families who lost family and friends and family in the plane crashes. But they weren't the only ones who's life was changed in 9/11. Everyone in the United States was effected by it. I know this because even though I don't remember it, I still feel emotion when see footage of it. Us Americans are brave and care for one another, we have this little voice that always tells us when we should help and brings us to do big acts of heroism and 9/11 showed everyone that.
    We are truly "One nation under God."

    September 8, 2011 at 10:27 pm |
  659. lily

    We must remember this date as a memorial for all of the innocent people that died in the towers and all of the firefighters that risked their lives to save them. Especially if you had a relative or close friend of yours in the disaster.

    September 8, 2011 at 10:32 pm |
  660. Kailin

    It is important to to remeber not only how it brought us all together, but also all the unfortunate lives lost in this disaster. On the 10th anniversary don't forget to think about all the people who lost a loved one during the attack of 9/11.

    September 8, 2011 at 11:32 pm |
  661. Sierra

    We need to remeber 9/11 because it was a very scary and depressing day. Many family memebers, friends, parents, and grandparents were lost that day. It was a rough time and as Americans we all stuck together and made it through that day. No one will ever forget what had happened. It will be in our thoughts, our hearts, and to all of those families; our prayers.

    September 9, 2011 at 9:04 am |
  662. Kelsy

    I remeber being in 2nd grade when 9/11 happened. My teacher started crying and us students didnt know what was going on. The teachers put all of us students together and we watched the new on television. I am now in high school and it is still a sad day to remember. I think we all need to give thanks and praise to God for helping us through this terrible happening. God Bless everyone who was there, who helped, and who prayed.

    September 9, 2011 at 9:04 am |
  663. Sam

    It is extremely important to remember this date because if we just forget about it. then, the war in Iraq would be useless and forgotten. All the people who fought for our freedom would be forgotten. That's why we should never forget about the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:32 am |
  664. Dylan

    I believe we should remember 9/11 so that we can continue fighting terrorism with the intention of destroying those who killed 3000 of our own. We should not hold back, as they did not. No limitations on how they should be killed or when. They didn't care, so niether shall we.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:33 am |
  665. Micheal

    I remember seeing smoke from my house and i lived an hour away from where the World Trade Center was located. We need to remember this day so we dont forget about the awful tradegy that happened.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:33 am |
  666. Wayne

    I think it's important to remember because it's the day that the U.S. came together to help each other. Americans stopped fighting with each other and the whole country was united.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:34 am |
  667. Allix

    I think it is important to remember September 11th because even though our country went through so much devastation on this day; it truly showed that we are able to come together as a country. On this day millions of people showed true leadership.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:35 am |
  668. Kayla

    It is important to remember 9/11 because so many inocent people died. Firemen, Police Officers, Parents, Husbands, Wives and children died. 9/11 had a huge impact all across america and it should be remembered.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:35 am |
  669. Rachel

    I believe remembering this historic day, even though it was a huge tragity, will help us look at how far we have come from 9/11. 9/11 wasn't just a day of loss, it was a day were the United States came together as a country to over come the loss we had on 9/11. We shouldn't look back and remember that day as a day of destruction and loss. We should look at that day as being a day that brought us as a country together and making us sronger, and telling the world that we can handle events like 9/11.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:35 am |
  670. Uriah

    I think we should remember what happened 10 years ago for 9/11 because it was something horrible that happened and we should have this anniversary to remind us that we can over come and still be the best! GO U.S.A. =)

    September 9, 2011 at 10:35 am |
  671. Stephanie

    I dont remember much about 9-11 because i was only 6, but even though i dont remember it was a terrible thing that happened and we should always remember what happened beacuse it had a huge impact on America.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:36 am |
  672. Justin

    I think that, we should never forget what happened on 9/11/01, because it shows how strong we are, it shows that no matter how badly we are hurt, we can and will overcome it and come together to help one anouther.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:36 am |

    We should remember 9/11 to honor those who fight for our country every day.

    America is Strong and can overcome anything that happens to us and I think that their should be more security at airports all the time rather than the day of a resent terrorist attack. when people look at this date everyone knows that it was an attack on high level buildings in well know places.

    We should remember 9/11, not only on the 10th year anniversary, but all the time. There were many people who died and even though it was a huge impact on the US we still tended to get through it. It is nice that people still are coming together and showing that we care.

    I think everyone should look back and not forget what happened on this day 10 years ago.

  678. Brittany

    I think we should remember the day that happened because we need to remeber our past and the hard times we have had because even though it might make you sad to think of those we lost you also should think about the fact that it made us stronger as a country. We should think of the people who tried their hardest to save the ones in the buildings and in the planes, think of those who tried and died to help these people it may make you sad but it brought us more together as a country also.

    We will never forget what happened on september 11. Looking back I think that we've become a stronger country because we united to help the people who have been affected. We will stay united in all good and bad times.

    It is important to remember 9/11 because on the 10th anniverseray 9/11/11, America is still weeping from that day, but because of 9/11 American citizens have united and stood strong against those who have tried to knowck us down. I was only 2 when 9/11 happened and yet I get so emotional now looking back on the day when another country tried demolishing our spirit and people. It is so important to remeber such an important and horrifying day in history for America so that we can build, and stregthen from it.

    We need to remember our past; it is the key to tomorrow. We shouldn't dwell on it, or try to get revenge. Instead, we should honor those heroes and heroines who died to rescue others. We shouldn't forget this occasion, but we should embrace it and try to make a difference in our world so that it never happens again.

    September 9, 2011 at 11:16 am |
  683. Talya

    Remembering September 11, and the people who died during the attack is important because if we don't, we are not honoring all of the heroes who pulled us through.

    This year is a very important year to remember 9/11 with the death of bin laden. I think our country is now proud to say that we finally killed the man who was behind this tragedy. We are a very strong country and we are lucky to live in it. Please support our troops that have done this for our country.

    I think the 9/11 was very how the terrist made the people so sad that they rather jump out a 50 story bulding than get burnd . People should rember the twine towers and all the people who died that day.

    so thank you all the people who help every one who could help that day

    R.I.P all who died

    I think that 9/11 was a big impact on anyone who knew or was related
    to one of the deceased. My great great granpappy knew how it felt to
    witness seeing one of his co-workers and other people died in the
    building. He was so devistated to witness that sight. He was also scared for his own life too.

    September 9, 2011 at 11:58 am |

    it's good to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because it was the first terrorist attack in the U.S. We can remember all the innocent people who died in those towers. As a Native American it makes me upset to know a terrorist attack happened on the land we found and killed so many innocent people.

    I think that it was a horrible day and everyone should be honored that died and helped in it (firefighters,police,medics,etc) and happy the guy who did it is now dead and wont do it to anyone else. I think its great they made the memorial to!

    It's really bad that the twin towers crashed. I was 1 year old when the planes hit the twin towers, and if I was older I would have wanted to take down Osama Bin Laden myself.

  714. Maceo

    It is important to remember because we never new it was coming in the first place....... they had attacked us for no reason at all... i think it was a cheap shot just to get attention to start a war... many people where lost on that day ( OVER 3000!!!!) and more lives are being lost during the war that is still going on as we speak.. So how i see it is we are fighting a war and losing lives because of what happend on September 11, 2001.

    I believe it is important to remember 9/11 terest attack , because it is a time of sadness, and rememberance of all those who have died on this day. It is also important because this brought all people close together, and we haven't had another horrible, harsh attack since then. We remember all those who have helped save people, and died, such as Firemen, and policemen and women.

    I think that when people think of this day, it brings America closer together and remembering that we are a country and we need to stand by each other. – Syd

    I think we need to remember it, so if something happens again, we know that we can overcome it. – Teresa

    In small towns people wave to each other, and big towns didn't, but after the attacks everyone was like a big family. – Savannah

    I think that when the terrorists attacks happened, we didn't only lose the towers, but we lost the loved ones of families, and the heroes who saved lives. – Tegan

    It's really sad what happened on 9/11 because we lost so many people. – Heidi

    We should remember this day because we need to remember the families that lost loved ones, and we should always be nice to everybody, because we need to be a family in case it happens again. – Jacque

    It is important to remember 9/11 because that is when many people sacrificed their lives for others and also many people died. For days it brought people together to pray... You can only pray that those who died may rest in peace. (CP)
    It was so sad that the Twin Towers came down. So many people died that day. Women, men, elders, children. Even kids less than 2 years old died that day. Everyone in the planes died on that day. (MV)
    It affected us all, even if we were not old enough to remember it. On this day our country changed forever. We also need to remember the brave men and women who gave their lives to save others. These men and wome along with everyone else who lost their lives from this devastating day. But what is beautiful is how America came together during this time of devastation. (JM)
    Families cried as they found out that loved ones had died. Screams echoed through the city as chaos occurred. That was the day that everything changed. Thousands died from the terrorist group with the ex-leader Osama Bin Laden. (HD)
    It was a horrible event, but you shouldn't remember (just) the negatives. You should remember the positives. History is history, and this event is a horrible event in history, but it shouldn't only be remembered as a negative event, but as a positive as well. It brought America closer together, something hard to do (N)

    Its a time when the United States banded together; got stronger. Its a reminder of the sacrifies our military makes for us each day, and even though we are between 2 seas, we arent safe. though were in a "free" country we must never forget that someone must pay for that freedome. The people we lost that day and through out the war paid the ultimate price. America she think of 9/11 and be thankful of all that we are given.

    We use 9/11 as of course a remembrance to the innocent lives lost. rest in peace to the people lost that day, and the fact that there is substantial evidence the towers suffered a controlled demolition angers me. people of this country deny the obvious truth to much, the towers were victims of a controlled demolition by who? i have no idea all i know is that it happened and that 3,000 innocent live were lost. And if you disagree with my controlled demolition statement why don't you study the laws of physics you'll find my statement correct if you do. We must use this day to remember the lives lost and to gain back power of this country and take power back from the scum that has taken over it

    It shows other countries that we will defend the country we all love for what others do. We are not afraid to stand up for ourselves. When we get attacked then you better believe that America, our country, will be there fight back.

    i think that the 9/11 attack was horrable.I think it also open peoples eyes to know that even though we are a big country it is still possible for someone or something to attack and kill us. 9/11 also showed that we are strong and when it comes to attacks we stand up together and fight back.

    The rememberance of 9/11 is a great need because it helped the United States repair the gaps in their security and to rebuild onto a better United States. Also, there were a lot of deaths and other tragedies that should not be forgotten so easily as if it was just another attack done on the United States of America.

    I think 9/11 is good to remember especially on its 10th annevirsary. We all have to remember what people did for us that day, and what people went through as they lost a loved one. The memorial that they made for 9/11 is very thoughtfull and a good idea that its a wide as the towers. Everyone shouldnt forget about 9/11 because its a tragic and historical even that happend to the US.

    The day of 9/11 was a great loss for our country. But it was also good in a way. It showed how we as the U.S can come together and help eachother when in need. I think we also need to keep in our minds and in our prayers of the people who died on that day and their familys.

    I think that we need to remember September 11 because it shows that we stayed stronge and helped each other at our weakest moments. We should remember the people who helped millions of people small or big that day. You always should think that the imposible is posible.

    I did not lose anybody in the 9/11 terrorist attack, but i know alot of people did, many innocent lives were taken, and i believe that she should not only remember the ones who have fallen, but their loved ones as well. I know what it's like to lose someone that you love, so in addition to remembering those who died in the attack, we need to keep in mind, the families, and others who were effected by it.

    remember our fallen firefighters/ police officers of that day and all of the events that occered that evening. that terrible day shows that we can overcome any tragitys that are thrown our way in any way shape or form.

  768. Cierra

    Even tho we lost many lives in the 9/11 terrorist attack,people should know that we should remember the one thing most important about the most bloodiest day in U.S history,that we all should think about the people that lost their live and their famileys they were inicent people who lost there lives.

  769. Cheyanne

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 because of all of the lives that were lost and that were taken by helping out when the attack came. People around the world reacted the way they should have. Scared,Confused, hurt. Seeing people today remembering all the lives that were lost really shows how much America cares.

    It is important because it brought our country closer together, many innocent people died in a tragedy caused by hatred, it made us stronger and united, to look forward, we must look back, and
    to see how people's lives have changed because of this.

    September 9, 2011 at 2:46 pm |

    I think we need to remember 9/11 because it brought a lot of people in the us together to remeber the firefighters that risked there lives to save those people.

    So many people lost their families, friends, and neighbors. I was so incredibly lucky I wasn't one of those people. All those poor families that went through all that sadness and depression. Even to this day friends and family suffer from their losses. Just keep your head up and try to move on. Trust me I know what it's like...even though it wasn't from 9/11:'(

    September 9, 2011 at 3:03 pm |

    i think it is important to remember what happened on 9/11 so we can think about what happened on that day when thousands of people died.

    I think its important to remember the horrible attack on september 11 because it shows how we have moved on and rebuilt and changed from that day.The security got better and the Pentagon !

    It was important that we remember the people who died and tried to help our country to be a good nation

  778. Dylan

    I think it is important to remember 9-11 because nothing like this has ever happened. Also, with the security going up, I dont think anything like this will ever happen again. 9-11 will go down in history. I think 9-11 should be called Remembrance Day just like Pearl Harbor Day. Thats why I think it is important to remember 9-11.

    September 9, 2011 at 3:38 pm |
  779. Victoria

    I think we need to remember and not really celebrate but re-connect with 9/11 because that one day in history, it shows that everybody can get through it and if anything ever happened like that again we would know how to react, what to do and we can get through it again if ever needed too.

    September 9, 2011 at 3:42 pm |

    We should respect that everyone who lost there lives that day are now heros in our heart.

    September 9, 2011 at 3:52 pm |
  781. Mrs. Arieli's 5th period (J. D. Mack MS)

    It is important to remember:
    -those who died shouldn't be forgotten
    -that many innocent lives were taken on 911
    -because we need to recognize the people who lost their lives saving others
    -because of all the lives that were lost fighting for what they believed in
    -the memory will always be engraved in our hearts
    -because we care about all the people who died in the WTC
    -that a lot of people lost their lives that day

    In my opinion I think that 9/11 is important for kids to learn about because there were Americans out there that risked their lives to save others.Another reason why i think kids need to learn about 9/11 is because the insistent people in the twin towers that did not get saved in time,past way.To me this is a tragedy that i will never forget and will always remember the people who risked their lives and also died for no reason at all.

    September 9, 2011 at 4:23 pm |
  783. Colton

    9/11 is important because it is to remember the men and woman who died on this day. Now as Americans will never forget what happened on this day. But ten years later we have built a memorial and fixed the pentagon. still ground zero is the memorial place in the united states of America. But now we have found out who did this. also we will never forget this
    event. So America is a good place.

    September 9, 2011 at 4:24 pm |
  784. jeremiah

    On 9/11 i think it was the first attack that tourist did to New York. Or it was the worst attack that happened.and every one will remember it.

    September 9, 2011 at 4:24 pm |
  785. Bailey

    I think that they are talking about 911 because it is really important because the anniversary of 911 is coming up in two days. So many people died that day and it was just a tragic event that I will never forget. Another really important reason is that many people forget about this event and since the day is coming might as well talk about it on CNN

    September 9, 2011 at 4:26 pm |

    9/11 was a terrible moment for all Americans and we have to stay strong and act as the nation we are known for. We should all remember that we are lucky for our freedom and life always gets better.

    September 9, 2011 at 4:28 pm |
  788. Kirsti

    1: I think future generations should be able to visit the 9/11 Memorial site on a field trip every school should have one to that memorial.

    2: Since there has already been one attack I think that if 9/11 were too replay they would know what to more than they did last time and will be prepared.

    3: I think we should make it a national holiday that way we wont forget that day.

    4: I agree with Sam that the war on terrorism is a just and good act and our nation should continue fighting the terrorists. Now with their 1st and 2nd in command out of the way, I believe we will be able to vanquish terrorism once and for all. I think with modern day technology and military techniques, we can wipe terrorism out.

    September 9, 2011 at 4:54 pm |
  789. katilyn

    i think we should think about all the troops that risked their lives for us and all the people to that helped us though this all. and many they all R.I.P. and many people thank them for all that they did though 9/11.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:05 pm |
  790. Mrs. Arieli's 6th period (J. D. Mack MS)

    It's important because of all the people who lost their lives, for people who showed their appreciation to America. It's important because during this tragedy, we stayed strong. We cannot forget those who died.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:10 pm |
  791. Anthony

    Its very important to remember 9/11 because so many people, heroes or ordinary people have lost their lives on that particular. The world was effected by this event because it was a world trade center. All the people who died to try to save other people, I salute you

    September 9, 2011 at 5:11 pm |
  792. T.J.

    It is important for people to learn about 9/11 because it was a time when we were attacked and we lost lives. Also, 9/11 is when some huge North and South Towers were attacked. And the Pentagon was also attacked and pieces fell off of the Pentagon. That is why people should know about 9/11.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:16 pm |

    it is important to remember because it is ten years after Osama bin Laden attacked the twin towers so many kids and grown ups are going to the momareal.

  794. Ashley!

    I was a just little girl when 9/11 happened, and i dont remeber much, but it still makes me want to cry when I think about it. I can't begin to image what that day was like for those who remember it, and all those lives that were changed forever. Im greatful we have a country that has been so supporting throughout this whole thing, and to the people it has most affected. Hang in there America!

    September 9, 2011 at 5:23 pm |
  795. Sarah

    We need to remember 9/11 because a lot of lives were lost that day. Also terrorists hit the twin towers then the pentagon. The fourth plain hit a small yard in Pennsylvania. I feel bad for the families who lost a love ones. The terrorist attack was planned by Osama Bin Laden. But now he is dead.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:24 pm |
  796. brandon

    Since 9/11 attack and now after 10 years and all we have been through has been harsh. As of right now we have doing a good job not going through that. The Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania there was a plane crash. U.S citizens have suffered in so many ways and I think we should all remember this tragic moment in history.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:25 pm |
  797. KJ

    I think that it's important to learn about 9/11 because if we do we won't get manipulated to do it when we grow up. We also need to know because its important and good to know about. we also need to know so we know why Muslims might be treated different.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:29 pm |
  798. Brooke

    Hey Carl, my thoughts on 9/11 are dreadful,depressing, and horrible today in school we talked and watched vidoes of 9/11 i was about ready to cry when the bell saved me. It is a dreadful thing something so bad could happen to good people. I am also afriad that the people who dealt with 9/11 there friends may be planning another attack for the U.S. But, hopefullly we can remeber this day not as a disater but as us getting stronger as a nation of our people.

    September 9, 2011 at 5:49 pm |

    its important because it was a wake up call to hire our security so we are safer and i thank the army men that killed osama because this is the first year without him 😀

  801. Tabitha

    Its important to remember 9/11 because we lost dear ones. No one deserved to die. We should stop and have a moment of silence to remember all the firemen and doctors that worked tirelessly to save lives while some lost theirs too. But we got the man that planned it all. Go U.S.A

    September 9, 2011 at 6:05 pm |
  802. morgan

    The reson i think that the attacks on 9/11 is to remeber the reason why men and women are overseas risking there lives to revenge the victumes and to remember the familys who lost a love one.

    September 9, 2011 at 6:08 pm |
  803. katelyn

    even though it hurts our heart to watch it fall just remeber to pray for the best also for all the heros and childern that live with no parents.

  804. skyler

    to remember all the lives the attack has taken search dogs,men,woman,and children,firemen and police and medics we should remember what happened on that day

    September 9, 2011 at 7:05 pm |
  805. candace

    It was an important day that we all got together and stayed strong. Also in todays history somtimes we forget some events like the holocost, so its to remind us that this did happen and it could happen again at eney day or time.

    September 9, 2011 at 7:15 pm |
  806. james

    I think we need to remember 911 because it was what started the war we are fighting against Alquida and it also helped us kill Benloden and his 2nd man in camand.

    September 9, 2011 at 7:18 pm |
  807. Jereme

    9-11 is a reminder that we could overcome any obstacle in our way, just like president Bush said, " they cannot dent the steel of American resolve." they cannot bring our great country down

    September 9, 2011 at 7:27 pm |
  808. sophia

    first of all i think it is important to remember 9/11 because even if we get attacked we still stand. theres this old saying fall seven times the eighth time get back up.no matter what happens still be strong america.

    September 9, 2011 at 8:20 pm |
  809. Brandi

    It's important to remember 9/11 with all the lives being taken and the ones who risked their lives saving other people and when America declared war on the Al Qaeda Terrorists.

    September 9, 2011 at 9:20 pm |
  812. Mary

    I think that remembering 9/11 is important because we need to take time to remember all the police officer, firefighters, and veterans that served to help all the places Osama bin Laden invaded. 9/11 is day we should never forget because it's important to remember all the people who died and saved our country!!!!!! I think we should have a LIVE broadcast of The 9/11 Memorial Event!!!!! But, thanks to our fallen/alive heros we should honor them by praying, sending cards, and giving gift baskets/care packages to the families that were affected on 9/11/01!!!!!

    GOD BLESS THE NATION!!!!!!

    September 9, 2011 at 9:58 pm |
  813. Savannah

    9/11 is important to remember because the men and women that went in those burning World Trade Centers had undying bravery, and that bravery did not die with them. We need to as a nation band together and not back down. Those who perished should be remembered not only for their bravery but for their sacrifices, especially the men and women that went in knowing that they would not come out, and they went in to save another's life. They are examples to all of us, and should be honored in the highest.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:09 pm |
  814. Haley

    It is very important to remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because it impacted our country so much and everyone was in shock and awe. And i bet they were thinking if that really did just happen or they probably hoped they were dreaming. But it was very real and I'm not sure how anyone wouldnt remember the day that 9/11 happened.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:50 pm |
  815. Abby

    9/11 was a very sad day for many civilians. Its hard to think that they couldn't save many lives that day. They really couldn't do anything to stop the terriosts. Every plane that had crashed was going to a certain destination planned, so no one knew where the planes were going or which ones were hijacked. The United States have changed alot since then, but hopefully nothing like this will happen again. Terrisom is a bad thing and needs to stop. Hurting inosent people you dont even know is bad enough, but killing people? I dislike each and everyone of the people who helped, planned, or had ANYTHING to do with this attack. 9/11 should never be forgoten, but I will always remember the lives of firefighters, police men and women, or anyone who was nice enough to save someone's life. I am very thankful for the ones still with us, and in rememberance of the ones who have gone to a greater place.

    September 9, 2011 at 10:59 pm |
  816. Margaret

    When we, as students, learn about the Civil War and other points in history, their impact in our lives seems minimal to us. However, when our teachers talk of the 9/11 attack, we can realize just how real and important history is.

    September 9, 2011 at 11:55 pm |
  817. Natasha

    Of course it`s important to remember that day because many people lost family and friends but America became one to make everything all right .No matter what happens I know that this country will stick together.

    September 10, 2011 at 3:47 am |
  818. Shawn

    We need to remember the September 11 , but it's more importment to learn from it to prevent the similiai case to happen.

    September 10, 2011 at 4:40 am |
  819. Jessie

    I think you rember these attacks because alot of people died for other people. We should be thankful because it didn't happened to us and Osama Bin Laden was captureed.

    September 10, 2011 at 8:04 am |
  820. zoe

    i think we should all remember 9 11 because it will help us be aware and it will help us learn that many things may happen to america, good and bad, and we are going to remember them, whether we want to or not.

    September 10, 2011 at 8:53 am |
  821. rosemarie

    we can never pretend that 9 11 never happened but we can protect our self from more events like 9 11 this why we all should pray for those fallen heros families and help them out.

    September 10, 2011 at 9:26 am |
  822. Lucy

    9/11 was a terrible attack, lives were lost and people suffered, but through the attack people also joined together, and helped one another during that time. Tens years later lives are much different then they would have been if people did not help each other on that terrible day when the attack struck.

    September 10, 2011 at 10:15 am |
  823. Dylan

    IT is very very important to remember over 3000 people died on that day and pray for all families who have lost loved ones.

    September 10, 2011 at 11:10 am |
  824. Angie

    I can't really tell you, where I was or how I felt when the towers went down, because I was only 4 years old. In a few days its going to be 10 years since 9/11 and all we can do is remember the innocent people who died that day. The day of September 11th 2001, we all stuck together and helped each other out, no matter what the cost. The terrorists who did this, their plan was to tear our country apart, but we showed them that we are to strong for that and that we will never back down. Remember your loved ones, and always cherish life.

    September 10, 2011 at 12:11 pm |
  825. Joe

    9/11 should not be just a date but a lot more to be remembered. People who perished in this disaster. people fought for it and people who never forget it and gather around annually to show their care to it. American should over come the shade, but shouldn't forget the pass.

    September 10, 2011 at 12:45 pm |
  826. Bailey

    It is important to remember this date because it was a huge moment in history. Even though we are ten yrs into the future from then we should keep moving but never forget that tragic event.

    September 10, 2011 at 1:39 pm |
  827. Diana

    I think we should remember the 9/11 attcaks, because it was such a terible event. We should also remember it because we need to remember every one who died in the attcaks, and the fire fighters the FBI and the police.We need to thank them for all the hard work they did to help. It was also a sad event that happen.

    September 10, 2011 at 1:45 pm |
  828. loni

    The way i reflect on 9/11 is a day of horror. But even though it is 10 years later i find it to still haunt me. I am glad that we have finally killed the wretch that caused this all to happen. still even if he is dead his name still scares me.

    September 10, 2011 at 2:49 pm |
  829. Caylin

    We should remeber this day because alot of people where killed but most of our people had witnesed the tragity. Most of us wont forget and some will.The ones that do forget we will remind themabout that day and they will inplant that in their mids so hard it makes a mark on them.

    September 10, 2011 at 2:53 pm |
  830. Kaylee

    I think that it is important to remember the brave firefighters and police that helped with it and all the innocent people who died in 9/11.. God bless all the familes out there that had a relative that died in this memorable accident...

    September 10, 2011 at 2:54 pm |
  831. Ethan

    I that it had changed our history of America. But you just got to move forward. There are always going to be obsticles and people who hate you. But that doesn't change any thing about you. 9/11 didn't just change people but it let people know what was out there. 9/11 made us come closer as a country and as a nation. Though the terrerists meant to hurt us they only made us stronger and thats what back fired on them when they hit the Twin Towers their plan had back fired because then they saw it make all of us closer! 9/11 is for the Unsung heros and Unsong victoms and thats what this is important to remember because it made america stronger so we could defeat the terrerists today.

    September 10, 2011 at 3:09 pm |
  832. alina

    I think its important for us to remember the 9/11 attack because many men and women risked their lives to save others. Those firefighters had children. Some childreb never saw their dads or mom due to their time in 9/11. We should all be happy that we have are parents because some people dont.

    September 10, 2011 at 3:38 pm |

    i think we all should remember 9/11 because you should never forget your past,even if it is bad,it makes you who you are today.

  834. Marissa

    i think that the terrorists though that we would follow their way of living;but we became a stronger nation.we worked together to become who we are today.we didn't fall,we rose and showed them we are the stronger ones.we didn,t let that get us down. 🙂 GO AMERICA!!!!!

    September 10, 2011 at 6:15 pm |
  835. Bailey

    9/11 isn't just the day that we were attacked. 9/11 was a day that we as a country came together as one to help each other through the hurt. Us kids don't fully appreciate that their were people who risked their lives to save so many people. The people on the plane that crashed in Pennsylvania and the firefighter and police officers who went to get people put of the twin towers put their own lives aside to save as many people as they could. 9/11 was a horrible thing that happened but every year that goes by we all remember the people who would die for us to be safe. That is why I remember 9/11.

    September 10, 2011 at 7:19 pm |
  836. Aleesha

    We need to remember 9/11 because people died that day of unnatural causes and they deserve our respect and there are now, because of this event, people fighting and dying on our behalf every day

    9/11 was very sad and tragic but it symbolizes how strong we are as a country. We all have problems with that day but if it hadn't happened then we wouldn't have all the feeling we do on that day.

    September 10, 2011 at 7:42 pm |
  842. chris

    its important to think about 9/11/2001 because of all of the people that die in new york and the pentagon and the plane that the people try to stop hijacker the plane that was heading to the white house and didn't make there.thats why its important

    September 10, 2011 at 7:43 pm |
  843. Ashlyn

    I think its important that we remember 9/11 as a day the U.S came together. Many people were brought together and started caring more about eachother. We should remember all the innocent people who died on that day, and all the heroes who went and tried to rescue people in that building. We should also learn that we need to take everyday and live it like its our last because we never know when our final day is going to be. R.I.P ALL THE LIVES LOST THAT DAY<3
    YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED!

    I think it is important to remember because of all the stupid little things we get mad about each day this shows that all that doesn't matter all that matters are the people you care about. I think it also matters because lots of peoples lives were lost of that day I think we should honor them. I also didn't like the fact that people were celebrating Bin Ladens death.

  845. Sophie

    I just think that even though most of us here were very young and do not remember what happened that day we still need to listen to our parents, our grandparents, teachers and other adults to give us more information on happened that tragic day and make sure we fully understand what this attack did to us American citizens. Which was a bond that can never be broken.

    I think it's a good to remember.9/11,Because it's such a horrible attack

    September 10, 2011 at 10:44 pm |
  848. Lizzie

    We should remember 9/11 not only out of respect for the lives lost, but because is it a day when thousands of lives where affected either by joy in finding out their loved ones had lived, by pain in finding out they didn't, or actually by being in the towers. This day showed that we, as Americans, do not fall apart in the face of tragedy, we band together and help each other.

    September 10, 2011 at 10:54 pm |
  849. Cindy

    I think it's important to remember the 9/11 10th Anniversary because it shows us, we Americans that one little attack or damage can cause many innocent people lives.

    September 11, 2011 at 12:00 am |
  850. Arielle

    We should remember 9/11 because it helps prepare are self for any future attacks so we can be more aware and safer for are future generations

    September 11, 2011 at 3:15 am |
  851. Hontas

    I believe that we should remember 9/11 because it shows that America is tough and can overcome the tough obstacles we have thrown at us when we all come together and help one another out through the tough times we face. We should all remember the people that tried helping and saving as many as they could while taking and risking there lives as well. America will never be the same after the attack, and who knows what it would be like before this whole thing appeared. R.I.P to the ones that took there lives trying to help during 9/11 you will always be remembered for your bravery and help.

    My family was so scared and we couldn't do anything about this. To me this was quite frihtening because my sister was born just 7 months before 9/11. Thank god that Osama was killed and didn't do another attemp after the 9/11 on the USA.

    Its important to remember 9/11 because you have to realize those people where family to others and they risked there lives to save others.

  855. Rachel

    on the day that the twin towers fell mmy family was very shocked and scared. i was especially scared because my sister was born just 7 months before this even happened. i also want to say thank you mom for what you have done for our counrty. I love you!!!!

    September 11, 2011 at 9:51 am |
  856. Jessica

    Not only should we remember the poeple who died in the towers and the men and women who died trying to save lives, but also the innocent poeple who died on the plans. Especially the brave poeple on the fourth plane. With out their sacrifice we would have had to see another place go up in smoke. Thank you all you brave men and women who were died in 9/11.

    September 11, 2011 at 10:04 am |
  857. ngel

    I think that it is important to celebrate the 10th anniversary because when the people who were affected and were in the building were affected, but not only that, it's because they had done it for America and they hurt their families for a reason and that is to keep America together, even now people are trying to do stuff for their families for the future of the USA. They are doing their duties for all and are not afraid they might die. I repeat, they do this to keep America a united union and they let themselves die to see their families in the sky.

    9/11 is sad everyone's flag is at half mast and we put out a rock that had 1,000 names of the people who were killed. I wish we had one with them all. Thats how I show my rememberence for 9/11 how do you show yours?

    September 11, 2011 at 11:30 am |

    9/11 took many lives. it affected our counrty very deeply but also made us a stronger nation. Rip the people who died in the attack.

  860. Jake

    It was a moment in time that stood still, it was a moment where the differences of the people around you weren't there as this was a moment where we stood as a nation of one. We should remember that day as the day where the people of America were brought together from the tragedy that happened on that day. We should all be grateful to live in the United Stated of America. God bless America, the people who lost their lives, and the troops who risk their lives everyday to make sure we have ours. We'll never forget 9/11

    September 11, 2011 at 11:43 am |
  861. Serena

    The rememerence of 9/11 is sad but the future still goes on. We losed some of our relatives but there in a good place now. And in our hearts. So always remember where ther at right now...

  862. Lily

    9/11 was one of the biggest historical events in the world. It impacted the lives of so many people. Although 9/11 created alot of uprising events, it also was an event that transitioned the whole of America. It created brand new security and life-styles. I think that that 9/11 was not only a bad thing in society, but made us realize new things as we come together with people we never thought we would.

    September 11, 2011 at 12:00 pm |
  863. Shyloh

    This is a time for every one to remember what happened that day and what we were doing. I bet everyone was thinking on that day, if they could go back to before this happened they would do all in there power to change what happened but if i could go back to that day i wouldnt want to change what happened be cause then we wouldnt have this chance to make our country stronger... It is still bad what happened though because so many childern, mother, fathers, brothers, sisters... were killed because some one had to be so crule to kill nearly 3,000 people and everyone is proably wondering for what. What did you gain by doing this.

    September 11, 2011 at 12:53 pm |
  864. Brooke

    I think it very important to remember 9/11 because they people that lost their loved ones were probably very devistated. and i hope that people feeling the I do about 9/11 because it was a very sad day.

    September 11, 2011 at 1:12 pm |
  865. Brittain

    I think it is important to remember so that we will never forget the lives that were lost, the courage of the men and women who saved others that day, and the courage of the passengers in the plane who stopped the hijacking terrorists.

    September 11, 2011 at 1:42 pm |
  866. Erin

    I think it is important to remember the terroists attacks on the twin towers because it sort of makes up who we are and even though it happened and will forever leave scars on our country it shows just how strong we can be. It also means that when we remember the attacks we remember all the people that died that faitful day and give good thoughts to the people that loved someone that may have died.

    September 11, 2011 at 1:43 pm |
  867. Erin

    In addition to people's families we need to say a big thanks to the firefighters and police who were brave enough to give thier lives to save someone else's and put that person in front of themselves.

    September 11, 2011 at 1:49 pm |
  868. Madison

    I only have to say one word: Remember. Remeber the innocent people who died in the towers. Remember the heroes who risked or even gave their lives to save others. Remeber the brave passengers in the plane who stopped the hijacking terrorists. Remember that even though we were greatly damaged and devistated because of this tragic accident, we over came it and made a strong recovery. Remember the strength of our country and that as long as we are together as a nation, we can over come challenges no matter how huge they are. Remember September 11, 2001. Remember.

    September 11, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
  869. Alondra

    I think it's important to remember 9/11 on it's 10th anniversity becuase it shows we haven't forgotten all the inoccent people that died on that day and all the people that fought for us, and also becuase it's make us stronger as a nation.

    September 11, 2011 at 2:19 pm |
  870. lexie

    i don`t think it fair what they .b ut i agree we should remeber what happen that day . a especially those who lost family.

    September 11, 2011 at 4:01 pm |
  871. Nikki

    People, especially the children, should remember the eleventh of September because they no longer realize that such a thing could happen, has happened, and still could. The children never realize that they don't live in a perfect world, that harm could still happened to them, and more than simply a broken bone. There are still people out there who are homeless because of the happenings on 9/11, some even full families. What happened on 9/11 wasn't a dream, and has scarred the world forever.

  873. Cali

    I think everyone should remember 9/11 because it really united this country. Children today obviously don't remember what happened, because they were'nt alive then. I don't remember it, either, because I turned 2 3-and-a-bit months after the attack. After 9/11, the whole country raised security standards by a whole lot, which may be slightly annoying now that we're used to it (airports scanning your luggage, for instance: it's useful, though!), but we don't realize how important it is for that same reason: we're used to it. Overall, 9/11 should be remembered forever.

    September 11, 2011 at 6:01 pm |
  874. Morgan

    We should remember the 9/11 terrorist attack because it changed America. This day so many innocent lives were taken in 2001, we shall not forget, and forever honor those who unlucky people who suffered in the attack, honor our troops who are now fighting for us because of this attack, and pray for the victims' families, while we all remember this day and know that while it shook us up, we are still a strong nation.

    i think it is truely important to remenber 9/11 because it was a very important day in history. my dad knew some on the firefighters from newyork that died. i myself was only 1 and a 1/2 and i truely remenber everything i did that day. i just makes me feel so sad that some one would do that and i am glad they have caught the leader of the attack. everyone who died, died to save people, and family member that died god be with you. 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦

    I hate thinking about 9/11... However, it is important to think about it and honor those who did so much for our country on that day. It is also important to go on with our daily lives.

    9.11.2001 ... A horrific day in American history that is a decade behind us now, but still haunts us to this very day, and will continue to haunt us as it is the moment of evil that has struck us in our most vulnerable area... our hearts. I continue to pray for the people who have lost friends and loved ones in the tragedy, and I will ... always. You all are in my heart, in my thoughts, and in my prayers. We must remember that even though this was an attack that was meant to divide the United States ... we came together, and became an even more "United States" of America. And here we are a decade later. Still fighting, still united, still America. We are here, we are alive, we ... will never forget. R.I.P.

    This day destroyed many American lives. A lot of people lost someone impotent or close to them. Even though a lot of people died it made America stronger. We should rember this day for those who died and for those who tried to save many American lives.

  886. Justine

    I think remembering 9/11 is important because over 4,000 people died. It hurt many people and it also changed many people and their lives. 9/11 will never be forgotten because it happened and we can't go back in time to change that.There is a lot that has happened but 9/11 is by far one of the most deadliest. I will never forget this even though i was very young when it happened.

    September 12, 2011 at 10:21 am |

    Its important that we remember this because we it brought our country together and know when something like that happens again we can prepare for it. So know we are a better country know.

  888. maribel

    The reason it is important to remember the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 is because...... People died on that day and because up till now people still believe that we should remember 9/11 because it shows that America is tough and can overcome the tough obstacles we have thrown at us when we all come together and help one another out through the tough times we face. We should all remember the people that tried helping and saving as many as they could while taking and risking there lives, as well. America will never be the same after the attack, and who knows what it would be like before this whole thing appeared. R.I.P to the ones that took there lives trying to help during 9/11 you will always be remembered for your bravery and help.

    I think its important to remember 9/11 because there were so many firemen, police, and people, in the building that died. You never really think about it till the 9/11 happened so really think about how many people died and how many firemen risk their life. R.I.P TWIN TOWERS

    Here is why I think that we should not forget 9/11. I think we should not forget 9/11 because there where close to 3,000 people died. Here are some more reasons why we should not forget 9/11. Here is some of the things that i am going to list. 1. If the people that died in 9/11 were alive still today and 3,000 of use that where alive today died 10 years ago.

    September 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm |
  898. Sean

    September 11, 2001 was the most drastic day the U.S has seen. It was a launching point for all the aggression between the U.S and Afghanistan. The terrorists may have brought done our World Trade Center, but they can't bring down the spirit of the United States. It is important to remember this day and the lives of the people it killed.

    September 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm |
  899. Katie

    9/11 was not only a mourning time for our country, but a time in wich to grow together as a country. We will always remember that time. Even in wich time we have used to heal. For even though we will never see our loved ones again we can always feel their presance with us today. Them urging us to be stronger.

    It is important to remember the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 because.. we have lasted 10 years without suffering about this or doing anything stupid to the terrorist. But its really good that we caught Osama Bin Laden from doing anything else to our lives.

    September 12, 2011 at 3:38 pm |
  906. kaylee

    the reason it is important to remember 9/11/01 is because some people were your family that you do not know about. I will tell you that 9/11/97 was my friends birthday. My friend is my brothers girl friend. do you know someone in the twin tower might was going to have a baby. some people who lived there was right in front of it. you should remember this because some one lost some one in the towers just like the torands.

    September 12, 2011 at 3:38 pm |
  907. brittany

    It is important to remember the terriorist attacks on september 11,2001... beacuse people died on that day and they crashed in to our world trade center. Heros died for our lives.And childrends parent and grandparents died. think about how they feel no one there to tuck them in at night or to tell them to keep trying ur almost there. but we (America) have gotten through obsticals thrown at us. 😦 god bless America

    September 12, 2011 at 3:39 pm |

    We should remember 911 because it was a tragic event that changed lots of peoples life. We need to thank all the paramedics, doctors, firefighters, and polices that was there. We haven't fell yet because we are still standing.

  909. Sarah

    ‎Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. Our enemies have made the mistake that America’s enemies always make. They saw liberty and thought they saw weakness. And now, they see defeat ♥
    – 9/11 , We will remember. –

  910. Skye

    I think we should rembember 9/11/2001 because the WTC fell because terrorists attacks. And also the 4th plane before it crashed people formed a rebellion against the hijacker. That's why we should remeber 9/11

    September 12, 2011 at 4:03 pm |
  911. Diego

    This event is important for people to remember for numerous reasons. For example, I think it is important to remember all of the innocent people and troops. Also, we should learn from that attack and be prepared for it if it happens again. Clearly this terrorist attack had a huge impact in America.

    September 12, 2011 at 4:30 pm |
  912. rachel

    I think it was a very sad event.I also think it speaks alot about the lack of security in the United States.I also think that they should be ready or prepared if it happens agian. I also think that they should have a secret place to hide some weapons for the pilots that fly the airplane
    so the next time this happens the pilots could win not the bad people.

    September 12, 2011 at 5:16 pm |
  913. katie

    It is important that we remember 9/11 because if children don't know about this day in history and its on the news, alot of kids will ask their parents about it and it might be hard for some families to talk about because they might of lost a loved one during the attack. If it is taught in schools, it won't be as hard for families to talk about because the kid knows and they won't need to talk about it if they have been taught about the attack on September 11, 2001.

    September 12, 2011 at 5:17 pm |
  914. Cailin

    It is important to remember 9-11 because that way the US will not let our guard down. If we remember the horrible effects of terrorism we can become an even better and more peaceful country.

    My school did a 9/11 program and invited service people in Arkansas.
    We signed using sign language with the song "True Colors" and
    "What a Wonderful World" by Louie Armstrong.

    9/11 was and still is a horrid day for many people.
    If I had the power to go back in time, it would be to save 9/11.
    My uncle's best friend died.
    May God Bless to everyone who died on 9/11.
