9/11

It’s morbid, I know, but I still watch these from time to time. They still make me cry.

There’s a full collection of videos here. It’s tough to watch more than a few at a time, if you can watch any at all.

The biggest difference between now and watching it that day is that these videos are raw. The ones that they showed on CNN when this happened were generally sanitized; it wasn’t until almost a year later that I saw one with the sound in tact, and heard the screams, the profanity, and the sickening crunch of the tower collapsing.

I still watch these because I think we’re in danger of forgetting, as a nation and as members of the human race. And we should never, under any circumstance, forget this day.
