I was speechless. It was surely the most horrifying event in my lifetime. The terrorist attacks on the three locations of the Eastern United States took countless lives, and threatened the spirit of our nation. And I found myself fumbling for words.

And so I took up a search for words to borrow, and what resulted was the tribute video below ā€“ a video honoring the citizens of the free world who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Iā€™m sharing a message of compassionate non-violence, a message that Mahatma Gandhi so eloquently delivered.

"Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man." ā€“ Mahatma Gandhi

In the end...

In the end it matters little to me.

The world is not worth my attention. It has turned its back upon the very thought of unity and peace. Woe be unto those of my descendents who will pay for the mistakes of my own peoples, and the descendents of my enemies who will pay for their forefather's ignorance.

You all disgust me. All of you who would justify the taking of lives, innocent or not, as a matter of an oppressed race striking back at their oppressors. It is far more complex than that.

The culture of Islam, and of America to some extent, both herald hatred and rally behind the flag of ignorance and propoganda to justify their destructive causes. Who can judge them individually?

Not you. And certainly not I. For in the end it matters little to me.

A Tiny Number of Lives Lost?

Alright, Teh_Havoc...

First off, I don't think that more than 3,000 lives is not a lot. IT IS A MASSIVE NUMBER OF CASUALITIES. Think out of your box- Try to visionize the thought of your friends and family who died in the tyrantical attacks of 9/11. A tiny number? Are you fucking retarded for something? Yes, more than 8,000 people may have died in Japan in 1945... But still, it IS a waste of life isn't it? And the Japanese didn't do it, did they? It was not the entire Persian sea- Or even all the races on Earth- It was a small group of people who think that by terrorizing innocent people to gain political advantages. Al-Queda. Since one of the main leaders of Al-Queda was killed, nothing has really changed. There are hundreds of thousands that want to achieve a goal of living their dream, who use terrorism to get what they NEED, not want. I am not trying to disgrace Al-Queda, as they try to have chances too- They need help. If President Bush drops a nuke on them, they won't destroy terrorism, would they? No, as I said, hundreds of thousands use certain tactics to get what they need. If President Bush hadn't gone into the decision of getting us into this pointless war, all would be safe. Actually, it wasn't even President Bush who caused the war. Think back- A LONG time back, a century ago. The Treaty of Versailles was signed, and kept many safe, as many thought. Yet, the century's generations of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren would not be safe. We been through World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Cuban Missle Crisis, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf War. If the Treaty of Versailles hadn't been signed, the Soviet Union would not have been established, and Germany's hyper-inflation from losing World War I would have been.

Second off, I, and many others are APPALLED, at your disgrace. We, the World, would never think that anyone wouldn't be scared by the horrific actions of a small, small few. Please, we beg, do not act like you don't care... We know you do, and it seperates you from the world.

I rated all of these zero, because you can never rate something that caused a near deathblow to a nation.

Idiotic blind patriotism.

Why don't you read the message again and see how much it applies to your government. Oh booo hoo a country that you thought you had total contol over fought back, it was bound to happen sometime. Do you ever stop to think about all the deaths america has caused even the death of it's own people, when Pearl Harbour was bombed America knew it was going to happen but all they did was move a few ships out to save them and they only had a skeleton crew on board. They left everyone else there oblivious to what was mgoing to happen, they told no one and let it get bombed and let lives go to waste, I would say innocent but the people killed there were as willing to kill as the people who bombed it. Then the government thoughr "right lets nuke them back to show how powerful we are" even though japan had been making plans to give up and leave the war a little while before it happened. There were thousands of lives lost at hiroshima and when the Japanese were in ruin america decided to nuke them again. The humour was for how funny i find it that everyone keeps going on about this, sure peoples lives were lost, most of them probably innocents but how can you honestly not have expected it when all America does is try to bully everyone into doing what they want with their nukes, nobody is willing to use WMDs except for America. Your blind patriotism to unjust causes make me sick, you complain about a tiny amount of lives lost in a "terrorist" attack in comparison to the huge number of lives lost caused by America, if you feel bad about that then think about how bad everyone in all the countries America invades feels, maybe they feel terrified making America the real terrorists.

Very touching.

Although, this happened like....5 years ago, right? And a lot of people are still shaken up about this. Well I don't blame them.

I mean, seriously. To those past reviewers that were flaming this (which was like 3 years ago o.O), you guys probably didn't loose a friend or a relative during 9/11. Me? That didn't happen to me. But when I saw what happened on the news, it frightened me. My brother (who is an idiot I should say) actually enjoying the sight. That is one example that doesn't care for other people.

It is a terrible tragedy, and I should say that the quotes you added there suit the flash very well. It sucks that not a lot of Americans listen to that stuff anymore :(.

great job, and 4Tiger4 sucks

this was a good flash. seriously. the message that was given was clear and made its point (which was a very good one) and 4Tiger4- fuck you. your happy that thousands of people died? i'd like to see how you'd feel and how you'd fuckin react if something like this ever happened. the amount of ignorance it takes to say something like that is fucking unbelievable. im no bush-lover, but we were attacked, and many people died. i dont find any justification in that.
