9/11 Footage Revealed; Hear New Tapes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHyecoBKPiA

There seems to be a lot more specials, tributes and rememberances within the last couple of weeks leading up to the 10 year anniversary. It's just hard to believe and wrap my head around in that it has already been 10 years since that sad and scary day. I think the reason why I can't fathom that it's been 10 years is because it's seared into my memory. And the fact that it happened on my Birthday makes it even more surreal. That certainly is a day I will never forget.

This Sunday, I will once again sit myself in front of the TV and watch as many tributes as I can. RIP to all those that lost their lives on 9/11.

Your youtube video was nixed.  I have been looking at some of the documentaries that have been on National Geographic channel.  The best one I saw was one that explored conspiracy theories about 9/11 (the towers were brought down by controlled demolition, the Pentagon was hit by a missile), and NG did experiments to see if the official record from the 9/11 report held true.  It was fascinating to see how the conspiracy guys reacted when presented with the evidence from the scientific experiments.  It was a good two hour show.

Others I saw were reactions and remembrances from people from that day.  I will also be watching to see what comes on Sunday.

I remembered seeing one of the conspiracy specials talking about what you just mentioned Ganthc. But that was back within a couple of years after the fact. Haven't seen anything like that this year though.

Ground Zero's ten year transformation

Even though CBS disabled embedding for this video, it's well worth it to go to the YouTube page and watch it. Pretty inspiring to see the Towers and the fountains being built.

Here a site I found its got several different networks coverage of week of 9/11 from around the world. It hit me a little harder than 10 years ago I think. To think I was on the last plane out of Boston before they shut all flights down was and is kind of scary to thing of. Theye switched the passengers on my flight from one plane that was having issues to a different plane, and then back to the original. I got back to Savannah and was greeted to this havok on tv.

Here's a similar kind of story and one that I found very interesting. It comes from Rob Lowe's book Stories I Only Tell My Friends in which he talks about how he got bumped to an earlier flight a week before because of filming schedule and how he was in fact suppose to be on one of the 4 planes that went down. Not only that, it was also discovered that the week before 9/11, he was on THE flight were the terriorist were on the same plane as him, used as a test run to see how it would all transpire.

That gives me goosebumps to even think that your on a plane full of terrorist and don't even know it because, in Rob's words, they all looked like normal every day people.

I like the interactive Map for New York and all the key spots during that day. Props to the History Channel.
