If you really stop to contemplate, its really really horrific. Almost spontaneously, as the towers collapsed, thousands of people(2,606 in the WTC and surrounding areas according to Wikipedia) were pulverized in middle of NYC. Its really mind boggling...
The sound, like a collective scream, still plays in my head.

"It will get worse. By the end of 2018, many expect that more people will have died from their toxic exposure from 9/11 than were killed on that terrible Tuesday. "

Four Hatzolah members have died as a result of exposure to the toxic dust.

If memory serves, there was a widely published story about a frum man (I believe his name was biegelisen, but not sure) who was above the fire line, and called his family - knowing he wouldn't survive. He had an opportunity to talk with his wife and children before the phone went dead.

Worse than that, to me, are the dozens of people who knew they were in that matzav, who literally chose to jump to their deaths so that their bodies would be found, rather than burned to a crisp.
. Yes, that mi'sah is no different, horrific way of a person leaving this world!
    Can one imagine thinking that he has to jump out of window from the hundredth floor vs being burnt to a crisp, which one would be worse! Shrecklach hamaysim!

...but just to look at what happened to many people, where they were suppose to be, here and there at that time and why they weren't in the buildings, how and why it was canceled, why they missed the flight and all the outright miracles one saw from the whole thing.
We need to also remember that this happens every day of the year without a tragedy going on. I would not call them miracles.

No one's arguing, just in such a scenario like what happened and hundreds to a few thousand people lost there life and how many were spared because of ....

Miracles can't happen every day?

No arguing on something like this. We just have different views on what a miracle is and that is fine.

   Sorry to tell you but every second of ones  live is a miracle, how your heart can beat and one can sleep and restore his functions the next morning, and be able to break down foods we eat and so on... Walk, talk, hear, see, the whole human body.. no batteries no solar...
    I guess different religious have different beliefs!

I was in 3rd grade - Bergen County, NJ.

I don't personally know anyone who died, but I know of people who worked in the financial district and struggled to get home/get in touch with family. I also know of people who were late to work because of Selichos that day and probably survived as a result.

My neighbor is one of them. Disgusting how hard these family's of first responders had to fight for coverage for their medical bills.
I'm not who you think I am.
