Impossible to forget for many.

The unity we displayed was, I think, unprecedented in recent years.

I agree , the unity was something else. I will never forget that day as long as I live.

One of those times where we remember the exact and precise details of the moment we heard the news. I was living/working in Peru and one of my crew told me. It took a moment to understand the situation with the torres gemelas. Odd feeling being on the outside (in another country) looking in.

I'll never forget the reporter saying we seem to be watching a replay of the jet crashing into one of the twin towers....oh no it's a second jet crashing into the other tower. An unbelievable day.

I saw the 2nd plane hit live too. I am a pilot and initially had thought there was some terrible mistake/problem with air traffic control...but the 2nd plane removed all doubt about what was wrong.

RIP and God Bless to all the victims and heroes from that terrible day, and from the aftermath/cleanup. I still get chills thinking of the "Let's Roll" bravery from Flight 93...giving their lives to save others. No greater love...

+1 All the thoughts shared here so far.

Amazing that this many years later, we're still fighting this battle against this enemy. But fight we will.

In the days after my wife and I sat on our deck look out to sea saying there are no airlines flying over American skys. Silent nights.

My company was holding an annual meeting. Some folks from across the country rented cars and drove home. They all posted daily reports on the journey home. A lot of heart warming accounts. Free meals in small town diners when the mentioned their diving home from Socal.

I'll never forget, either. I was driving from Springfield, MO to Topeka, KS to pay the KS Nat'l Guard a visit. The Mrs called me with the news of the 1st plane crashing. After I got to the Guard site in KS everyone was watching the news in utter disbelief.

A sad day for all of us. Yes, we'll continue to fight. The world is different, now. We were caught with our pants down

one of my best friends called and asked if I was watching TV and told me what was happening.
I asked where he was and he said he was just admitted to a hospital.
6 months later he died from an aggressive form of leukemia.

I'll never forget on many levels.

I lived through it while working in DC as an attorney for a big law firm.

My one friend visited the twin towers the day before with his family. His kids asked "what if these buildings fall down"? VERY spooky!

The flag at the Post Office is flying at the top of the mast.

Today's "Google Doodle" is a small black ribbon that doesn't even do anything when you click on it.

And the trending stories on today's Google News are "Florida, Apple, Hurricane Irma, Hillary Clinton, and Cleveland Browns."

So what are you guys even talking about?

It was a VERY dark day in our history and drove home the fact that even though there are two oceans to insulate us from the rest of the world, we are indeed vulnerable.

For days after with no air traffic it was eerily quiet in Memphis as we always have both the Memphis airport as well as Fed-X flying all the time.

We honor those lives lost by keeping them in our hearts.

My wife and I were on our Harley around Las Cruces, New Mexico. We had just turned on the bike's radio and at first we thought we were listening to a "war of the Worlds" type of radio show but when the second plane hit I remember saying "this is for real".

Had a job interview right in the middle of everything that wasn't until the afternoon. I remember being upset that I had to wait until the afternoon, I would have preferred it in the morning.

I'm fortunate that I didn't get what I wanted.

I'm also fortunate in that despite my living very close to the WTC site, and having lived here my whole life, I didn't lose anyone close to me. There were a few people I knew, a few relatives of people I know, but not what a lot of the folks around here went through. A lot of people lost someone.

I was first back in Manhattan about 6 days later (maybe sooner, I can't recall at this point), and I remember seeing the pieces of the destroyed exoskeleton of the building kind of just sticking up out of the rubble. It made it so you could tell what it had been instead of just being a pile of rubble. And the smell, I will never forget that.

And also, the dead silence on the Staten Island Ferry, which I'd been riding most of my life, while approaching the dock on the Manhattan side. Usually full of all kinds of noise, conversation, and unusual people yelling at themselves, nobody said a word.

And that was just from going by. I can't even imagine what its like for the survivors.

RIP and never forget.
