I was watching the trailer of the movie 2012, when I suddenly stumbled upon the video clips of 9/11. It's hard to imagine being in Kevin Cosgrove's shoes at that time. He did the only thing he could do. My condolences to his family and friends. His courage is a true symbol of the tragedy that the world will remember forever.

I listened to the last phone call you made Kevin, it breaks my heart to hear you so desperately try to get help, knowing that most likely it was never going to come, and you were going to die.

R.I.P., man. I hope you are at peace now.... You left the world in a tragic and insane circumstance.

Looking at the comments on this page, I think Kevin has touched a lot of people's hearts and helps the victims of September 11, 2001 to live on in our hearts and minds. I won't forget.

May the soul of this innocent man and  all the souls of this tragedy be not in vain. I hope they are in a beautiful place, and I pray daily for a world of light and peace. Never again.

I never knew Kevin, but I recently heard his cry for help on that fateful day, September 11, 2001. I can't stop thinking about it or get his voice out of my head: I play it over and over in my mind. I cannot imagine what it was like or what it is like for his family to have someone taken away in such a terrible tragedy. Kevin, I WILL NEVER FORGET!

I just saw the video for the first time. I feel sick. What a terrifying thing this poor man had to experience. I will never forget his voice, and I want to send my deepest regards to his loved ones. He is one of the true heroes of this nation,  and may he R.I.P.

Normally I find these kind of websites stupid, but I listened to the recording.  He did NOT die in vain. I will never forget.

They may take our lives. They can't take our souls.

I am from England, and 7 days ago I saw the video and heard Kevin call for help, and I cannot get it out of my head because it really scared me, and I feel for the guy. I hope that he is in a better place waiting for his family.

Before hearing this poor, poor man's call, I really didn't grasp what exactly 9/11 was. This changed everything. It's one of the saddest things I've ever heard. May you rest in peace forever.

Mr. Cosgrove was a brave man, exactly as I would expect an American in his horrible situation to react. I will never forget.

*** Posted by Jerry Marlow on 2009-10-19 ***

May you rest in peace.

I heard the audio, too. I don't know what to say, for so many people have said it already: The world will remember you. I was only a toddler when this happened.... I never understood the pain and hatred that was going on. I was only a child. Forgive me, for now I know.... God bless America and all the others who care. Rest in peace. God bless your family and all the others who have lost.... All of us who haven't know how hard it is for them. We will try to comfort them about their losses. Don't worry, and I hope your family and everyone else who lost someone knows that the world is praying for them. We care. Once again, rest in peace.

Only today did I listen to Kevin's phone call, and I broke down into tears. I am sooo sorry to all his family and friends. He seemed to be a glorious man. I'd give anything to re-write the ending and be able to tell my children he got out safely. My eldest daughter, Tiffany, is 14. She recently learned about the true horror of 9/11, and she told me the heart-wrenching story of darling Kevin Cosgrove. I never thought to look into it until she came home from school crying, after hearing his phone call. I give all my love out to his family and loved ones today. I am so sorry. You are all so brave and so incredibly lucky to have known such a wonderful man.  x

I listened to Kevin's phone call. He was extremely brave.

To the family and friends of Kevin Cosgrove...

I didn't know the man. He was a brave man. And to hear his last words, I know he's in a place that he was intended to be.... I wish all the lives that were taken on 9/11/01 hadn't been there in the towers. To this day I still think of it and look it up. It's scary, yet I can't look away.

911. Just a number, I think not. Lives lost live on forever in our hearts and minds. As we share this tragedy, strangers become friends and family. Let us never forget Kevin Cosgrove and others like him. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

*** Posted by Michele Ginder on 2009-10-14 ***

I was only 5 when it happened. I'm 14 now. I remember when they kept playing it over and over and I said, "Who cares." And I look back on it, and I wish I could take back what I said. Hearing his last words really hurt. Your life could be gone in one second. May God bless the families of everyone who died in 9-11.  <3

My regards to his family and friends! May his soul R.I.P. along with all the other lives taken that day.

I cannot begin to express the magnitude of your loved one's phone call. This has really put a face to what I've tried to push aside for all these years. I will think of him every day I am here.
