    As a New Yorker who works near the World Trade Center, I'd like to take a moment to pay my respects to all those who died on this day, one year ago. We're all so lucky that we're alive today to be able to discuss such unimportant things like the Treo 300 and such. God bless us all.

    As a former New Yorker who used to work near the World Trade Center, I'd like to echo that.

    I feel that the best way to show the world that our nation can recover from any attack is to rebuild the Trade Center buildings with a memorial park between them.

    Use the frozen assets of the groups deemed responsible for the attacks to help finance the rebuilding.

    Hmm, not to raise the ire of current and former New Yorker's, but in all the pictures I've seen since 9/11, the skyline seems more "balanced" (as he tries to use those artsy terms he's been learning recently ) without the towers.

    Everything else I agree with, though.
    It's gotta be weather balloons. It's always weather balloons. Big, fiery, exploding weather balloons.

    As a native New Yorker and as one who not only lost one of my closest friends but also two softball teammates, I say do NOT rebuild the towers. Take the entire area and make it into a cultural center/museum/park with a memorial on the original footprints. There is plenty of other space to build reasonably sized office buildings to replace the lost footage.

    Personally, I'd rather see them rebuilt bigger, primarily as a gesture of defiance. However, there is no "right answer" here; and frankly I'm very glad the decision isn't up to me.

    I may have been the one to cause the other thread to get locked... sorry about that. Today is a day of rememberance. It's a day to remember what happened on 9/11. It's also a day to remember the people who have given their lives since fighting for our freedoms. Thank you for starting this thread. Hopefully we can keep it on topic and keep politics out of it....

    I still remember where I was and what I was doing when it happened.

    I have a nephew in Afghanistan right now!

    It's a day we should never forget!

    My heart goes out to the family and friends of those who were killed on September 11th, 2001.

    everyone should watch the videos of those planes hitting the towers at least once today.

    btw, why is the new tower going to be shorter than the twin towers? I just heard that today.

    If you watched it happen, there is no need for the videos, it's been burned in your memory for instant replay!

    When asked if I had lost someone at the World Trade Center, I could only answer, "No, I lost them all."

    It might sound odd but reading the OP talk about the Treo 300 kind of brought home to me again how long ago this was and how much has changed but also how vivid the memories of this day still seem. How much more can any of us remember about that year, let alone about the 300? Yet the sounds I heard that morning and the images I saw are almost as clear to me today as they were on September 12, 2001. I guess it just realigned my perspective a bit on the importance of things.

    My thoughts go out to those who lost loved ones on that day.
