Anyone else watching the marathon of 9/11 related shows today on History channel?

Some are pretty good. Some are just doing some arm-chair quarterbacking. I won't even get started on the "Truthers" .

Anyway, this programming has been an informative remembrance to the events of that day.

I've been watching it. It brings back a lot of memories of that day. I think one of the things that struck me on that day was the sight of all the ambulances lined up to take survivors and then the slow realization that there weren't really going to be any.

I've been watching various programs about 9/11 all week. I liked "Gullian's 9/11". He absolutely was the public face of that terrible day. I really, really found pride in that he was NY's Mayor and as an American.

The network news really fumbled the ball IMO not letting some of the terrible images of people jumping to their deaths that day. The networks seemed to want to brush 9/11 under the rug and make people forget what we all saw that day. There should have been more I say.

We, the people who do not believe in Allah and "regular" Muslims, have one common enemy....militant Muslims. They want us all dead and we should never forget that!!!!

I decided not to watch 9/11programming anymore because it's too depressing and then I have trouble sleeping. So I used to watch it a lot from 2002-2005 and then I stopped and felt it wasn't necessary anymore

I've been watching it, how they grounded all the planes was really interesting. I was a firefighter back when that happened, was on a list to go to NY and help, but was never called, probably a good thing.

I saw that it was on but had so many things to get done today, I never got the chance to really sit and watch.

This was done out of respect for them and their families. I am glad that I've never seen one of my friends falling, although I suspect one or two might have.

I watched maybe part of one or two of the shows. Much too depressing to watch. I remember when it first happened and how it was on every channel, all day, everyday for about a week or two.

I also remember seeing one of those magazines with images from 9/11 ---- in one photo, you can actually see a person sitting on an office chair being blown out of the second tower when it was hit.
