As this day draws to a close here in the UK may I send my condolences to the families and friends who suffered loss or injury on that dreadful day 9 years ago.

May we also reflect on the affects on innocent people by all wars and war-like acts, however justified, between countries across the globe.

I am not religious but for those who are, may God be with you.

Quoted from Casualties of the September 11 attacks:

Casualties of the September 11 attacks included a total of 2,977 fatalities (excluding the 19 terrorist hijackers): 246 on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the towers and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon. All of the fatalities in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

Tonight, around the Hallow ground the 88 searchlights formed as Tribute in Light will again beam up high into the Sky in remembrance of the September 11 attacks.

Yes, and the families and friends of the 2977 who had their lives severely impacted upon must top 50,000.

We humans think we are civilised, yet it almost seems that the value given to a life diminishes as years go by. I can't draw much solice from history either - there was the deliberate mass extermination of Jewish and Polish folk in WWII, to say nothing of the affect of nuclear weapons.

Seems like it's a rough old world, and when you think about it we are probably worse than non-human animals in most respects. We should put our (superior?) brains to better uses than killing each other. Even cannibals, arguably, had better justification
for their actions.
