I live in England, have visited ground zero, and am so moved by the tribute there. September eleventh was a day from hell like no other. I find myself watching video footage of the attacks, and I now have listened many times to Kevin's last desperate words. What must have been going through his and all the other many innocent people's minds when hope of survival was fading fast. I keep watching and listening to the footage, almost in the vain hope that I can rewrite or change the ending so that Kevin gets out, and the firemen reach him in time. But that will never happen. What a brave man! My heart goes out to his family and friends, and we must honour him and the many other victims by ensuring this never happens again.

I have had many deaths hurt me in my life, and hearing Kevin's last words on earth tore me to pieces. I had the same feeling as if he were one of my own. I came across this site by chance. I hate what happened on Sept 11th and how it could have been avoided. It hurt me. However to read and hear the last minutes of the life of this husband and father ripped me to the core. By far any and every feeling came out through my tears. I know there is nothing that can comfort you besides Jesus. I hope Kevin is in good rest within his bosom. I love you all, and I am blessed to have learned about this wonderful man on this day, who only cared about living, his coworkers, his children, and his dear wife, and their feelings in his final moments on his final day. You're forever in my thoughts.

I have just listened to the 911 call made by Kevin. I broke down immediately. I am so sorry to all the family and friends who lost a loved one that day. I can't even imagine what you went through, but I hope you receive some comfort knowing that people all over the world are thinking about you.

It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. My thoughts are with you.

It has been eight years since that horrific day, and Ive been online watching footage of that day when I came across Mr Cosgrove's 911 call. It has got to be the most heart-wrenching thing I've ever heard. My eyes welled up with tears because every time I listened, I was hearing this poor man perish. My prayers go out to the Cosgrove family, especially his children, whom he mentions during the call.

Your words are all that remain to those who never knew you,
To impact them and remind them never to forget,
To never become just a participant in this thing called life,
Rather to go on and experience every day, thankful for what we have,
To make the world a better place, one by one, day by day,
So that one day, your last words do not live on in vain,
And that they've created a necessity for change in the world,
Your words blew across me like a very cold wind,
Knowing your fate—only because I lived and you didn't,
But your words warmed my heart, touched my soul, and made me think
That I must be a proponent for positivity and change in this world
Because we're given so little time not to truly live it to it's fullest.

Life should never be taken for granted, should never be spent negatively.
Always attack life as though you're a child, with energy, vigor and splendor.

Thank you for your life, Mr. Cosgrove, your words impacted me immensely. Thank you, Cosgrove family, for being a part of such a valiant man's life. My prayers go out to you all.

I just heard Mr. Cosgrove's phone call this evening. It completely devastated me. To hear the determination in his voice, but also the fear, but knowing the outcome was heart-wrenching. I just want to say to his family that you are in my prayers! Rest in peace, Mr. Cosgrove.

*** Posted by Trisha on 2009-09-13 ***

I was greatly disturbed when I heard the recording. Rest in peace man.

Hello again Kevin and Cosgrove family,

Just wanted to say that I never stopped thanking Kevin and his family for choosing to leave us his last words, so that we might never forget. God Bless...

I just heard Kevin's last words a few minutes ago, and I am greatly disturbed. I am so angered by the fact that his life was taken away so early. It really made me realize that I need to be thankful for everything I have and every person in my life. Rest in peace.

RIP Kevin Cosgrove and all the victims of that tragic day. You are not forgotten. God Bless America.

I never heard this tape until today.  I came across it by chance. I'm so sorry, that's all I can say. I hope his family is doing o.k. He is a reminder to the world what was done to us that day. That was his mission in the last few minutes of his life. Thank you for your words. You were brave.

*** Posted by Erica on 2009-09-12 ***

Just heard his last call, tragic and so chilling. He kept his head so well up to that final moment. RIP

*** Posted by Alfie England on 2009-09-12 ***

I was deeply saddened by your final call. It brought tears to my eyes, and no-one could ever deserve what happened to you. My thoughts are with you.

*** Posted by James Rhodes on 2009-09-12 ***

Every year I believe I'm strong enough to move on. Yet, every year I listen to Mr. Cosgrove's transcript on YouTube and realize that this unspeakable event will remain a part of me for the rest of my life.

Best Wishes to the Cosgrove Family.
