Remember where you were when you learned of the terrorist attacks on 9/11?

Of course you do.

Who could forget?

One thing that really annoys me is when people try to say the government had prior knowledge of the attacks and did nothing. These same people believe the towers came down in a controlled explosion, the planes were military planes, and the media was in on the hoax.

Really people? Really?

It's dumb to me. I don't know of one person who could know that thousands of innocent people were going to die and not do anything to stop it. Think of the sheer number of people it would take to pull off a hoax like that. It's nuts.

One thing I have been thinking about is the religious extremism that pushed the hijackers to pull off this stunt. Would they have done this if they were atheists? Nope. Just sayin'.

I found this incredible footage of the 9/11 attacks taken from a woman in her New York apartment. The video is extremely high quality, and it's something that humbles you when you watch it. You hear the people in the apartment speculating on what caused the first fire because they only heard a "boom." The camera stays on throughout the morning, showing the second explosion/plane and then the collapse of the towers.

Here it is if you want to see it...

So sad.
