Amos (band)[edit]

I have no idea who "Amos" is, listed as a band under October 9 but I changed the link to Amos (band). I couldn't find the band on Google, and if Tori Amos was intended I would think they'd have used her first name, too. If anyone figures out who the band is, the Amos disambig page would appreciate an update. :) -- 09:09, 18 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Official Services in Schools Around the Country?[edit]

I was in first grade when the attack happened, and we had many assemblies afterward. Some of them involved speeches from local clergy, from the principal, etc. Many involved singing patriotic songs (I specifically remember "God Bless America"). Our teacher passed out American Flag pins. (By the way, I went to school in Maine, not New York City).

Are any of these things widespread or nationwide? If so, I think they deserve a spot in the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:58, 27 August 2011 (UTC)

Transwiki Proposal[edit]

Doesn't this article belong on the September 11th Wiki instead? See VfD precedent at VfD/Casualties of the September 11 Terrorist Attacks: Pentagon I honestly haven't got the gall to put it up for VfD.Halidecyphon 21:13, 4 Apr 2005 (UTC)

There is almost no discussion here of the official WTC Memorial[edit]

I know there is a separate article on this, but some discussion here would be good Savidan 00:14, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Merge of September 11 2001 fifth anniversary[edit]

West Coast[edit]

This may be inappropriate but I just need to say something. I watched the world trade center movie and bawled my eyes out. I couldn't imagine people working at the golden gate bridge or anywhere in the SF Bay Area like my uncle.

This is how I felt... a lot of others my age & in my area were feeling the same, many kids at the time my age didn't know what had happened until we got to school at 8:00AM and jokingly our friends would say they blew up the pentagon. To us that was french. After seeing some sort of east coast perspective on TV we thought some people were overeacting. We had a vigil in my small town and I didn't get it but to a lot of age 12-17 y/o Northern Californians we were confused.

Physical Memorials in and around New York[edit]

Multiple physical memorials have been created in different locations in New York City and in New Jersey. Is it appropriate to create a subsection for these? The subsection could have links to discussions of individual physical memorials such as the Staten Island September 11 Memorial. Chesterct (talk) 22:40, 29 December 2009 (UTC)

I think the Physical memorials section should be broken into subsections. --George100 (talk) 00:31, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Concert for America[edit]

No mention of "Concert for America" ([1], [2], [3]) at the Kennedy Center on September 9, 2002? -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 12:59, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
