OK I made the same point but here is an example where the wide world, a computer and the typed word don't really imply the intent of the person making the post....I don't know georgeflint but know that's not what he meant. It is nice he felt it was bad and shouldn't have happened, just the wrong word that's all.

Yet I, and probably most most of America and many people around the world can clearly remember every single minute of that day.

So much time has passed

Remember that day very well, although I didnt know what impact will it have on this decade. It was a breakthrough, the most important event since WWII

And every time I try to imagine what have those people in Towers seen, I feel like being there with them.

That tragic moment will last on history cards. September 11 2010

What would have happened to the WTC if 9/11 had never occurred?

One cool thing about 9/11 is when some newschannels play back their "as it happened" newsreels. Makes me remember what TV used to be like back in the day.
I remember Paula Zhan on top of some midtown building with the smoke far behind, and all the drivel they babbled about during the days afterward, and some of the craziest stories they came up with during the media panic.
It's one of those few times when it felt like you HAD to watch CNN in fear of missing some major news.

Some crazy days. On the other hand the burnt smell that the wind carried at night wasn't too pleasant.

If it never happened...

The complex would have been renovated a couple years ago to go green
America wouldn't have gone to the M.E
Saddam is still in power
Commercial airline industry would still be thriving
Economy would not be as bad as now

BUT, it's would have been possible they could have attacked at any time and it would have happen anyway or another.

And one more thing...
There would be nearly 3,000 people still living, therefore hundreds of thousands ( family's, friends and acquaintances ) the whole world would be happier.
Not trying to sound smart......It's just crap the loss of life........

What really interests me is why there are only few photographs from inside of WTC on 9.11? Or I'm wrong and the majority of them hasnt been published

Im not looking for show, but its just interesting that among thousands of people inside no one took photos of whats going on. For example photos of North Tower burning from South Tower.You have to remember that at the time and later, when being evacuated, probably no one has knew that planes have crashed and that day will be one of the most tragic in USA history.

I have much respact for all those who lost their lifes on 9.11 and those who survived or were deeply touched by attacks.

When the North Tower was hit people started to evacuate the South Tower. many were advised to return to their offices as the 'problem' was confined to the other tower. Guess many still left but this leaves all the surrounding buildings like WTC 7, The Millenium Hotel, The Verizon Building,The WFC, One Liberty Plaza, 22 Cortland St, Bankers Trust now being demolished. All these nearby buildings would have had thousands of faces watching the events unfold.....with digital cameras common there must have been lot's of people taking pics and movies ? Then those buildings became involved so when would the word have gone out that all these buildings be evacuated ? If it was when the first tower collapsed it's amazing some lives weren't lost in any of these buildings....I haven't heard any stories about people evacuating WTC 7 but they must have all got out well before it collapsed later in the day.

I think the towers oughta just be rebuilt. They weren't particularly pretty, just a pair of extra-tall gray boxes really, but we've got a REALLY sore spot for them. It'd be a really good way to give Al-Qaeda the finger. And once they're rebuilt, cover the roof of both with spotlights all pointing directly up like in the last picture above.

You must remember, this was in 2001, before youtube, before the iphone/smartphone entered the market and when cameras on even the most advanced phones were pretty shitty. Most of the videos you see are taken on actual hand held dedicated video cameras mostly carried by tourists/people sight seeing. The people in the buildings you described were office workers, and who the hell brings a video camera to work?

Yeah, Digital cameras were not as common back then. More likely people in the Millennium Hotel opposite than general office workers having cameras......and in Lower Manhattan many hotel guests may be business people not tourists.......as an aside just heard news the Eiffel Tower in Paris had a bomb threat the day after 'Burkers' were banned in France. So how are average people not to link Muslims with terrorism.....I accept the right for all to exist, but that should be a two way street.
