I don't want to be a "downer" here, but have to ask. As the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 approaches, are you just a bit more anxious?

We notice that as the anniversary of 9/11 approaches in 4 days, people are a bit more "down" and "on edge" at work. One woman does not want to go to Disney this week with her family ("avoiding big crowds in public places"), another says "I am staying home that day".

Do you feel any "nervousness", or are you in any way "down" or "somber" as this day approaches? Is it changing your plans or behavior in any way?

I find myself more glued to the news, and the headline news channel seems to be on more TV's at work, all day, then usual.

How about you?

I totally forgot about it and it hadn't even registered that this is the 10-year.

I'm certainly really down about it, my parents are convinced it's going to happen again, although I don't believe that myself, I understand others' concern with it. I am just down, because of the impact that it's had on my life. Sure, bigger events have happened, but I was still in Middle School, and it was the first MAJOR event that I was old enough to understand...well...no t really understand, but realize what had just happened.

I am not worried about something happening on the anniversary of 9/11. But with the 10th anniversary of 9/11 coming up, the media has been refreshing people's memory with the horrible scenes of the Twin Tower, Flt 93, and the Pentagon. Whenever I see those images, my heart will be laden with sorrow, and tears start welling up in my eyes. I don't think I'll ever get over what I saw on TV that awful day!

I honor the memory of those who lost their lives on that terrible, terrible day. But, to be perfectly honest I'm really sick and tired of the media in this country instilling a nature of fear in our citizens. I refuse to watch, purchase or have anything to do with anything related to 9/11. That's my big kick in the teeth to the people responsible for the towers falling. I refuse to live my life in fear.

THIS.

I feel horrible about 9/11 dont get me wrong but the news shoving it down are throat is just bad. They do it for ratings, and to instill fear like stormy said. Im not watching any stuff on it.

The death of over 3000 people in a single day, due to extreme violence is not something I could ever forget, nor would I want to. I am not an island. I am part of a society, and that requires I remember important things and maintain my links to the society I chose to live in.

As it is, yes, I am upset. It is difficult to believe that horrible day was 10 years ago, I remember it like yesterday.

I refuse to be blase or irreverent or uncaring. I refuse to be oh so "hip" as to not to care about the deaths of so many and about an incident that allowed our "leaders" to start the two longest wars in American history.

It effect me as an American, as member of Earth and as an empathetic human being. I will cry that day, on the anniversary, I have no doubt. It has nothing to do with the "press" or anything else. But, a sad memory and remembering that lives were lost by innocent people, who should have lived much longer, not to mention the families of those who were lost and injured.

I have little fear of things I have no control over. I'm not afraid of "terrorists" but I am sad for those who lost their lives and those who gave their lives in their selfless attempts to save others.

My thoughts exactly. I feel sad, and I remember that day as if it were yesterday. However, I do not live in fear of terrorism. I have never lived in fear, even immediately after the attacks. I refuse to let any group have that type of power over me.
