Hello members and staff of CKA,

I would like to give my sympathies to those who lost family and friends, spouses and children during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and felt while on the forum, it would be appropriate to do so here. While many nations felt the loss, it struck the States the hardest, as they lost 411 who gave their lives, trying to save many of the rest of the almost 3000 people who lost their lives that day.

In addition, I'd like to ask the members of CKA to post their own sympathies, or give a moment to remember these people. I'd appreciate if the thread was left free of any harsh words or debate.

Thank you all for your time.

Never forget the bravery, heroism, and sacrifice that happened that day. Ten years ago today, in about two hours, the 9-11 attacks took place that changed all of our lives, and left a lasting memory that will be forever held in our memories.

Rip to all who dies that day and in the years since. Thank you to all who have sacrificed and worked so hard to try and prevent it from happening again.

The most bizarre 9/11 conspiracy I've come across on the internet is that no planes crashed into the World Trade Center.

I've also read that the towers were brought down by a US military laser beam; that there "wasn't enough rubble" after the towers collapsed; that the lack of rubble at Ground Zero was the reason why skyscrapers around the area had curtains put up at the windows - and drawn closed - to stop the people in them seeing the lack of rubble and was the reason why there were supposedly huge screens put up around the Ground Zero site to stop the public noticing the lack of rubble; at that the "firemen" seen in photos searching through the rubble at Ground Zero were actors, some of whom were actually "inserted" into the photos thanks to special effects experts.

All of it complete and utter nonsensical, of course.

It's only a matter of time before things get even more bizarre - when people start claiming that the World Trade Center never existed at all.

By the way, has anybody seen the disturbing images of a woman named Edna Cintron waving for help from the huge gash ripped into the side of one of the WTC buildings?

She was seen standing there waving for help as fires blazed around her, before she gave up hope and jumped to her death.

She has been identified by her husband.

There is much clearer footage knocking about in which you can see her in detail but I can't find it.

I remember 911 like it was yesterday. I´m originally from New York City and I was sitting in a classroom in Florida when the teacher put the news on the TV used for lessons and the towers were in flames. I wanted to go home to NYC at that moment. :|
