ABC News – FULL TV coverage – September 11, 200…, posted with vodpod

This is the first video in a series I will post this weekend in „Remembering 9/11”. Viewer discretion is advised. This video should not be watched by children. This „Falling Man” video is a component is an important part of the catastrophic events that terrorized people everywhere as they watched in horror on that fateful day. Parents were not ready to deal with this subject themselves, yet their own children and young people had to deal with the after effects of watching it all unfold on live television. There were many lessons learned, not least of all was the lesson that in the digital age of LIVE television we were confronted with the fact that our children were also inadequately prepared as they themselves watched in fear, grief and horror.

911: President George W. Bush Addresses Joint ...

Until now, former president George W. Bush, has never discussed on camera what he was thinking and feeling, and what drove his real-time, life-or-death decisions in the first minutes, hours and days after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

But first some raw reporting from that fateful day in our nation from the „New York Times” newspaper on Sept. 11,2001 –

In what appeared to be parallel attacks on quintessential symbols of American financial and military power, hijackers flew jetliners into both towers of the World Trade Center in Manhattan and, less than an hour later, into the Pentagon, outside Washington.

The 110-story towers at the World Trade Center soon collapsed in a horrific storm of flying glass and rubble. The largest of several smaller buildings in the World Trade Center complex, a 47-story structure that had been set ablaze by debris in the morning, gave way in late afternoon.

One wall of the Pentagon – the fortress-like headquarters of the Defense Department across the Potomac River from Washington that was built at the beginning of World War II – also tumbled to the ground.

President Bush said tonight that thousands of people had died in the attacks.

Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani said at around 10:30 p.m. that outside of the airplane passenger deaths, there were six confirmed fatalities in New York, „and tragically there are going to be a lot more than that, but that’s what we know of at this point.” In all, 266 people perished in the four planes that were hijacked, including one that went down in Pennsylvania, with its apparently intended target being Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland.

President Bush, in a televised address to the nation this evening, denounced those responsible for the attack and promised swift and harsh justice. He also pledged the nation’s aid to the victims.

„Today our nation saw evil, the very worst of human nature, and we responded with the best of America,” President Bush said.

„The search is under way for those who are behind these evil acts,” he added. „We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.”

by Rudy Giuliani (published in the USA Today Sept. 9, 2011-

My parents knew exactly where they were when they heard about Pearl Harbor. In the same way, all of my contemporaries and I can say where we were when President Kennedywas shot. Today, 10 years after the worst attack in our country’s history, someone still comes up to me to say, „Do you know where I was on Sept. 11?”

Sept. 11, 2001, stands as the defining event of the 21st century. For me, 9/11 remains puzzling. It was the worst day of my life and the best day. It was the worst day because of the incomprehensible death, destruction and evil. Very soon after the attacks, we began to understand the threat posed by Islamic extremist terrorism.

Sept. 11 was also the best day because it put on display the very finest human instincts — compassion, courage, kindness, selflessness. First responders rushed into what they knew was a life-threatening emergency. Neighbors helped neighbors, and aid poured from good people all over the country and the world.

When people endure a traumatic event, they are either defeated or made stronger. On Sept. 11, I told New Yorkers, „I want you to emerge stronger from this.” My words were partially a hope and partially an observation that people in New York City handle big things better than little things. I could not be more proud of the way my city responded.

Remembering 9/11 (video 4) The Pentagon – American Airlines Flight 77 – National Geographic

from the „New York Times” newspaper on 9/11/2011-

Across the country, emergency procedures that were never used during the cold war were suddenly invoked, not as drills but for real. For the first time in history, all civilian airplane flights were grounded while military and civilian officials conferred by telephone from secure locations.

At the Pentagon, still smoldering, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said, „The Pentagon is functioning. It will be in business tomorrow.” He and Attorney General John D. Ashcroft condemned the attacks and pledged that their agencies would do everything possible to bring the organizers to justice.
