I heard the recording of Kevin's call for the first time in my life this week, and am amazed that I didn't hear it or know of it sooner. The desperation in his voice and frustration as his entreaties for help go unanswered touch a deep place in my heart, and I'm anguished that we and his family lost him in such a tragic way, as well as many other innocent men and women that day. I'll never forget Kevin (or his last moments on Earth) and hope to God that this nation never forgets the attack that was perpetrated against our country and all of mankind on 09/11/01. Rest in peace, Kevin....

I'm just in tears. I was 11 years old when the 9-11 occurred. I didn't know how much those building meant until I turned 18 and watched the documentaries. Words can't describe what went through my head. I mean, this is the stuff that you see in movies. And when I heard the recorded message of Kevin Cosgrove, I said, "This cannot be real."

He was a true hero. R.I.P.

I'm sorry. I'm extremely sorry. I watched the video on the Internet, and it made my heart hurt. He didn't do anything to deserve to die. He didn't deserve to die. He didn't know what was coming. I lost a brother on Sep 5, 2006 and a sister on Apr 26, 2007, just 7 months apart, so I know how hard it is to lose someone, especially in a tragic way. It could have been preventable, but apparently it wasn't. That shows why there's life after death.... My prayers are with Mr. Cosgrove's family, and may he R.I.P.

The sound of Kevin's voice has stayed with me for many years. So, so sad ... such bravery. My love goes out to all his family and friends. xxxxx

The 911 call this man made on 9/11/01 changed my life. I first heard it on 9/11/07, and was haunted by his voice for months. For me it gave a voice to 9/11, which, before hearing the call, was only news stories, TV specials, and movies. This man's voice made it real to me. It must be so hard for this family to allow the call to be heard by the world, but in allowing it, it showed so many people, who did not understand before, the hell that these people went through.

I'm actually on youtube at the moment, and I just listened to Kevin's 911 call, and even though I've never met him, that call just hurts my heart. I'm actually teary-eyed right now. May God bless the  families of the victims.

May God bless your little girl. I hope you can find the light at the end of the tunnel! ... R.I.P.

I was so affected by Kevin's last brave attempt to survive that I have prayed for his family every day. God bless all of you, and let's all look forward to a safer, happier world in the not-too-distant future.

It was sad what happened to Kevin Cosgrove. God bless his family.

My heart goes out to you and all the other people who came to work on the 11th of September, 2001, in the World Trade Center. I was only 6 years old then, living in Denmark, so I didn't really understand the reality of the situation. Now, we've seen darkness. But we also remembered our ability to help and care about other people.

I just heard Mr. Cosgrove's last moments through Youtube. I feel so terrible. I prayed over my sleeping 2-year old daughter thanking God for the blessing and for the strength to amend my life. I hope that I can value my life and make myself worthy to live in world that Mr. Cosgrove had to depart from. I hope his soul and his family's lives are at peace.

I am so sorry for your loss! I am so deeply touched by his message and so many unheard messages. I feel awful, and today I value my life. May your family be blessed.

That's so, so sad.

I have seen the footage of 9-11 and been angry and saddened by it all. The call that Mr. Kevin Cosgrove made caused my heart to skip. I'm so sorry for the loss of this man and the thousands of others who lost their lives that dreadful day.

It is impossible to listen to Kevin Cosgrove's 911 emergency call and not have tears in your eyes. That man hung on to life, as he knew he had so much to live for. I never knew him, but I wish someone would have reached him in time to rescue him. And I feel bad for his dear family. It's always horrible to lose a loved one forever. It's even worse to lose them to such monstrosities. I am from upstate New York. Mr. Cosgrove was taken from his life and his family too soon, and in such a horrible way.

I stumbled upon the split screened footage of Kevin's call and nearly didn't watch it. It felt wrong, voyeuristic, macabre even. But until then I had only seen the usual, street level, or newsreel footage of the horror: The anguished faces at the windows, the poor falling souls. I had to hear how it really was for these people, so I watched.

As I listened to Kevin, I could tell (with hindsight) that there was no way the brave emergency services were going to reach him. I realised, whilst watching, why the screen had been split, and it dawned on me what I was about to witness and hear. But I still wasn't prepared.

The man I heard was one of the bravest men I have never met. I cannot imagine how it was where Kevin was, but I will never, ever forget his voice or his cry when the rumbling started. It grieves me.

My thoughts and love to your family.

Muito triste, meus pesames.... [Ed. - Very sad. My regards.]

*** Posted by Pedro on 2010-01-12 ***

I just saw the video of your last seconds alive, and I just realised how it must have been to be up in one of the towers, with nothing you could do but for your life to end. That makes me sad. You will always be remembered.

*** Posted by Christian Sieger on 2010-01-09 ***

REST IN PEACE. May God protect your family and your children. You'll never be forgotten, never.

All my love,

*** Posted by Jeanne on 2010-01-05 ***
