Find out who did this, and mobilize everything we have to destroy them once and for all. Nobody fucks with the USA. This is the greatest act of terrorism in world history, and the first time in almost two hundred years (not since the War of 1812) that the United States proper has been attacked by a foreign power. Whoever you are…you dared to touch us. You wanted our attention? Fine. You have our attention. Now you see what happens when you fuck with the USA, because we are not soft, and we are not alone in this world. We won’t hold back any longer. - zavo’s head space, LiveJournal entry, September 12, 2001.

I expect major and severe retaliation against the responsible cowardly enemy. I am more than ready to enlist against that enemy, or any that would do something like this. No question, this is the first attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor, and now, I understand war. I walked 90 blocks home and got here at 2pm. - Email sent by Wall Street Greek, September 12, 2001.

Miss Liberty bowed her head. From on high and nigh, she witnessed the horrifying cataclysm. There were tears in her eyes. And the nation cries with her. Denver was not torched, but it has been touched. - from Woody Paige, Denver Post, Sept. 12, 2001

I was about to leave a city, which a week later continued to dig ferociously amidst the WTC wasteland even though all hope was lost. A city that has mile-long lines at the blood bank. A city that has rallied itself and a nation to persevere and be strong — to outdo ourselves. To be better than expected. To conquer fear. And I will do that. I will give blood until my veins collapse. I will donate money that I don’t have. I, like everyone else in this city, this nation, will persevere and continue to dream. - from a weekly newspaper column in Ambler, Penn., Sept. 15, 2001.

Eric’s roof is no longer a safe haven. It is just another danger zone. There is death everywhere now. It feels like it’s creeping around the corner, ready for any of us. Will I ever laugh like that again? Will any of us? - Flak Magazine, September 24, 2001.

I have to go back to work now. I don’t think I can stay here all day, this is ridiculous. I just heard that they found a bomb in the empire state bldg. (could be another rumor), and that Grand central has been evacuated. I want to be in Brooklyn, preferably drunk. - from email, September 13, 2001
