I didnt know asia personally but we did go to school together and it breaks my heart knowing that this innocent girl who did nothing to anyone is taken from this world and her family and friends. RIP ASIA

Asia, you lived a wonderful life, as I found out from research, but we all know god had a plan for you, and we know you're in a better place.

Siento que Asia, una niņa tan joven, muriera en manos de terroristas. Siempre estaras con nosotros.

[I am sorry that Asia, such a young girl, would die in the hands of terrorists. You will always be with us.]

Asia was the sweetest bundle of joy, and she had that teddy bear feeling in her hugs. She got that from her father. They had a way of embracing people and making them feel special, even if they really felt nothing. Mr. Cottom was my coach and gym teacher, but for some reason he was always more like a friend, and I weep for him and his family because they lost their angel to this tragedy. But we all lost a part of us when we found out Asia was no longer with her ...

My beautiful Asia, O how I miss you.
Words can never express the void this has left....
I weep for your death, but I celebrate your life,
For no other person you were like—
Unique, brilliant, and bright,
A star, a shining light....
My beautiful Asia, oh, how you are loved,
And may you rest in paradise in the skies above....

Dear Asia,

You will always be in my thoughts. Rest in peace little sweet angel.

I have posted for Rodney and Bernard, and now I post for you. I saw your other site— and I love the picture they put up of you— and I weep even though it's been eight years. You three should have been in college by now, continuing to make your families proud as you always had. I pray that God opened His arms to you so quickly that day that you had no concept of fear or pain. I also pray for the teachers and their families— I, too, teach, and I see in your faces my own students. God be with your families.

I am sorry about your death, and may you R.I.P. You were so beautiful, girl. I will always pray for you.

I just wanted to say that I feel deeply for her family. I know what it feels like to pass 11 years old because I'm now 12. I'm doing a monologue for my drama class based on a 9/11 victim, being that 9/11 just passed. Mrs. Cidels is grading us based on our performance on how we think the victims of this tragedy would react if they could look back on it now. I hope I do good because I saw this person and saw the website and thought I had to do this. Asia Cottom was a very sweet person in my eyes and my thoughts. Frankly, I think if she was still alive today, she would be an even more successful and intellectual young lady. She would've represented all of the people who aspired to be just like her. She was a very inspirational role model for us young ladies today. So R.I.P. and B.B.C. (Be Blessed Constantly).

Peace, love, and happiness,

Dis one 4 u Asia!

Dear Asia,

Your picture is on our fridge. I just tried to explain 9-11 to my 7 year old. She doesn't understand. I promise to take her to your bench at the Pentagon, and I also promise that she will know you.

Dear Asia,

Even though I did not know you or your family, I want to express my condolences to your family.... You are in a wonderful place, and from what I have read, you were a WONDERFUL person.... Again my condolences to the family and all my love.... Muah.

*** Posted by Janelle on 2008-09-11 ***

Even though I didn't know her, my thoughts and prayers are with her family. My son was only 1 1/2 when this happened, I can only imagine what her family is going through. She will be missed.

*** Posted by Kami Floyd on 2008-09-11 ***

My prayers will always be with you.

Oh, Asia. How afraid you must have been that day, just as I had seen. I was on the ground while you were in the sky. But I know that when you turned your head in despair, God was right there, and everything was all right. May God bless your soul.

*** Posted by Robin Williams on 2008-03-16 ***

You left the world far too soon. I never met you, but now I know your sad story. May god be with the family. You died a hero to the world!

As angels carried them to the sky... 3 mothers wept.
As God checked his book of life... 3 mothers wept.
As Gabriel opened the gates... 3 mothers wept.
6 years ago they left their mark... today 3 mothers wept.

Peace to our young ambassadors who were gone too soon:

Bernard Brown II, 11, Washington, D.C.
Asia Cottom, 11, Washington, D.C.
Rodney Dickens, 11, Washington, D.C.

You will not be forgotten....

May God bless the Cottom family. Asia you are with God; therefore, you are safe. I Love you!

You are not forgotten...

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner. We are maintaining this site with our own money and time. We try to keep the advertisements to a minimum and we try to make them as unobtrusive as possible. The revenue goes back to maintaining this site.
