Dear Kevin,

You have touched my heart forever. I will always have a special place for you and all who suffered that day.

I hope his family knows that there are tons of us out here who think of them. Although the audio of Kevin's 911 call was unbearable, I hope that he is okay now. It is his family that I worry about. I hope they find comfort knowing that others care. I am halfway across the country and have never met Kevin or any member of his family. Still, Kevin's voice is imprinted in my mind. I will not forget him. I hope his family remembers not only memories of Kevin, but also ways that they made Kevin happy while he was here. I wish the Cosgroves the best, and may Kevin rest in peace.

I just can't actually believe that I heard your last words.... I really wish your wife and children the best. I'm really sad 'cause those guys never got to you....  R.I.P.

I have many time tried to imagine what you were going through on that terrible day, and try as I might, I get a feeling deep down that makes me feel scared. I think you were scared, too, but you were also brave. You were thinking of your family. You were thinking of your friend, Doug Cherry. You were a selfless man, Kevin, and it seems you put others before yourself. I have heard your voice at that most darkest of points as countless many have. You, Kevin, define the word "hero." Rest in peace. I doubt that your name will ever be forgotten.

Every year I always have a place in my heart for all those who lost their lives that awful September day. I will always remember Kevin Cosgrove with a very heavy heart. I could never imagine what he and all those people trapped were going through at that time. Kevin's chilling 911 call has given anyone who's ever heard it a heartbreaking idea of the pain and torture that they all must have felt. May you rest in peace, Kevin, for you are the true face of bravery.

I just heard Kevin's phone call for the very first time. I am sitting here in shock with tears pouring down my face. I know his words will stay with me for the rest of my life. Kevin's call is a reminder of the fear and horror that almost 3,000 people experienced on 9-11 before they died. My heart will always bleed for the victims and their families. Love always.

I just listened to Mr. Cosgrove's 911 call, and I, like the others who have posted, am completely heartbroken and affected deeply by what I heard.

As I watched the video ... and listened to Kevin, I could do nothing but react with tears and immense grief and sadness not only for Mr. Cosgrove and Mr. Cherry, but also for all of those in the towers that day.

I have seen the towers fall countless times over the past nine years (on TV and the net) and although I was aware of the victims inside the buildings ... I guess I never really comprehended fully just what happened that day and what a nightmare it was for those inside the towers.

Kevin's call humanizes those towers crumbling to the ground in a way that only a first-hand account could. It wasn't just a spectacle of steel and glass and fire ... it was human beings terrified and scared at the last seconds of their lives. Kevin will always be known as the voice of the victims trapped inside the towers.

I am deeply sorry for all the pain everyone went through that day as a victim. I am also deeply sorry for all the friends, family, and loved ones whose lives will be affected for the rest of their lives by this horrible tragedy.

These brave people did not deserve this.

Nine years on I stumbled across Mr. Cosgrove's tape and have been touched to my very core for the first time about that tragic day.... I have been looking long and hard at my own two small children and my partner since I heard Mr. Cosgrove's words and realized the stark reality that it really could've been anyone of us at all! From now on I will think of the dear souls who lost their lives on that day, and not just focus on a collapsing building, and ensure my children are made aware of the actual facts and the true human cost of that horrendous day.

In our hearts and minds forever, dearest Mr. Cosgrove,
We all love you unconditionally,
Lisa and family in the U.K. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Today I heard the 911 tape of Kevin Cosgrove. I did not know him, but listening to the phone call, I “knew who he was.” He loved his wife; he loved his children; and he loved life! I will never forget your name, Kevin Cosgrove, never. I will pray for your family and friends. I will think of them often and send them love. I wish I could hug them all for you. You did not deserve to die afraid and alone. May God bless your family and friends. May the wonderful memories of you comfort them. The Cosgrove name will be in my heart forever!

I HEARD you die, a first in the whole 9/11 thing. I cried.

I just heard Kevin's tragic tape yesterday, and it has been in my mind ever since. I sort of wish I hadn't heard it because it has left me with such a great deal of grief, sadness, and guilt that I have never felt before. He seemed like such an amazing man, and the courage that he displayed was beyond remarkable. It is tragic that he lost his life that day. Without even knowing him, his story has touched my life in a way that I will never forget.

God bless your family and friends, who remember you. We will never forget.

*** Posted by Joan on 2010-09-12 ***

Bless you, Kevin. I heard the 911 call today. Hearing your last words make me sad. May God bless your family.

I'm a drama intolerant person, and there is very little that will effect me emotionally. Yet Kevin's phone call did just that.

*** Posted by Vasya Bricklyn on 2010-09-12 ***

It's nine years later, and my heart aches for Kevin and his family and for all those who were destroyed by this horrible, horrible act of cowardice. My prayers go out for Kevin's family and for all who lost loved ones. May we never, ever forget.

Here I am at work on September 11, 2010 watching the memorial on TV and remembering all the innocent lives that were taken on that horrible day and I look up videos and pictures on the Internet and I came across Kevin's audio clip... Words can't explain the feeling I had hearing him talk about his kids and family. I still can't stop the tears as I'm writing this. My heart goes out to the Cosgrove family. Kevin, I'm sure  family is very very proud of you. 9.11.01 -We will never forget*

I will Never Forget.

We Will Never Forget!

I cannot imagine the horror this person went through in the moments this call was being made. All I can think as I listen is how many seconds he has to live when you see the time ticker at the bottom advancing to the end and his last agonized words. You can't help thinking how others were going through the same thing at that instant... poor soul.
