I will forever be haunted by hearing the final words of Mr Cosgrove.... As I listened, my blood curdled and my throat got swollen from stress.... Rest in peace.

This was the most horrifying thing I have ever seen and heard in my life, and I will never be the same again.

I am very sorry about what happened.... There is no words to say....

I listen to your last call every year on the eve of 9/11.

I am so so sorry. I don't know what else to say.

I've never felt as deeply saddened as I did when I researched 9-11 and came across your tape. I was too young and too scared when this happened to think about it too much. I have been thinking about it lately, though, and it is just so heartbreaking. I wish with all my heart that this had not happened, that everyone in those buildings and planes were still alive today and with their families. I wish someone or myself could have done something for you to help you. I wish there could be some kind of justice or resolution. The world is so full of bad people and bad things. I guess I am beginning to realize this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I never knew you or any of the victims of 9-11, but my heart breaks for you all.

I never truly felt the reality of 9-11 until now. I was only 12 when the WTC towers were struck. Now that I'm 21, I can more fully comprehend what happened that day. I can't imagine the fear you felt during those last few moments. God Bless your family, Mr.Cosgrove.

I have wanted to do this for such a long time but find it so hard to express in words my feelings, so I hope people reading might be able to forgive me if it's needed.

I don't know why, but whenever I think of 9/11, I always think of Kevin Cosgrove and his family and think of the word "brave," even though there were many more beautiful souls lost on that tragic day. I have even sat and cried a really deep hearty cry a few times about Kevin and 9/11 in general. It's amazing that even though we don't know people as friends, etc., that we can still be so moved and touched.

Of course, I've watched the telephone call, like lots of people, and just cannot believe it is right there happening to Kevin. It really hurts me bad to the core of my existence. I know how bad my feelings are, but it's still nothing to what Kevin went through and what his family go through day by day. One of my hopes now and then is that it was just a bad dream Kevin was having, but that he woke within seconds to find he was going to be okay and safe in God's hands. I have to keep telling myself this because I feel so much pain for Kevin and his family, and of course the many others in the world that were involved, both victims and families.

I have a friend that goes to New York a lot, and he said he had been to the place where it happened, and as he told me, I thought of Kevin Cosgrove because that made me see it was not a made-up story—it really happened—and that the streets my friend walks down in New York would be the streets Kevin walked down. Because of this, Kevin, it's a comfort, and it brings us close together. Our lives really touch, and I feel I really know you. I can place you and your family in my heart for the whole of eternity.

I can, like many, live in hope that things might someday make sense to me also, on the other side of the fence. God bless your family always, and God bless America.

With all my love,

Im from Germany. I just listened to your last words! Man, I will never forget them! Rest in peace! I hope you are in a better place now!

I just listened to Kevin's phone call. No words can describe what I felt for a person I have never met. My thoughts are with his wife and children. R.I.P.

I don't really know what to say. I also heard your last phone call, and I was speechless for hours. I WAS the type of person that would ask God, "Why me? Why don't you help me?" because I've been a type-1 diabetic for 14 years. After listening to that phone call, I felt like an awful person; I felt mean, and I just cried. I am soooo sorry for what you had to go through. I prayed to God today and asked for forgiveness because I never realised how other people deserve his attention and help more than me. I am sorry, and R.I.P.

May you R.I.P. :/

9/11/2001 was a date we will never forget.

We know that it was the most horrible day ever. I saw the video about Kevin, and it is so very sad to hear those screams. I hope all of the victims are resting in peace, and I hope that America recovers from that nightmare! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I am English, but the video of Kevin touched me. It will stay with me for life.

Your voice may have been silenced, but it echoes around the world and is a testament for history.My heart goes out to you for the time you will never have with your loved ones in this life. May your voice, though silenced, be used for justice. Rest in peace, sir. <3

When I first heard the phone call from Kevin on 9/11, I felt like something inside just broke into pieces right when the tower collapsed on his last seconds of having hope.  :(  I cried and had a fear inside, or at least something that gives a feeling that chills and lasts for a while, just thinking about it. He's a person who ever wanted to have the last thing to happen was seeing his wife, kids, and close ones that loved him as well as he does with them. He wanted his reason to not die because of them. I can imagine how it was like trapped in a burning building that soon would collapse on you and your human body you'll no longer walk on the face of the Earth with.

RIP to all 9/11 victims. My heart goes out to you with every story you have that will always be remembered.

Kevin, you truly are a remarkable man. You are an American hero. You will now never be forgotten. May you rest in peace.

To his family: Remember your father, husband, cousin, uncle, etc. was a very strong man, and you should be very proud of him. I am very sorry for your loss.... :(
