To the Cosgrove family...

I just watched the YouTube video of Kevin's plea for help. May he forever rest in peace, and in the hearts of your family and friends. It breaks my heart to hear the fright in his voice at a time like that. God bless you all.

I've never been able to watch a good deal of the existing footage of the 9-11 attacks. Today I went onto Youtube thinking of tomorrow's eighth anniversary of the attacks, and I heard Kevin's tape for the first time. Now I know why my inner voice told me not to listen in the first place.... I will never forget his harrowing plea to God before the line went dead. Dear Kevin, my heart goes out to you and your family. Eternal love.

I'm from Warrington, England. I was 14 when 9/11 happened. I remember coming home from school and watching it unfold. I've just watched "Phone Calls from the Towers" on C4. It's so true what Kevin Cosgrove's wife said: "People felt like it was a film until they heard my husband's phone call."

I wouldn't say it felt like a film to me. To be honest, at the time, I think, even at 14, I was too young to actually comprehend what was going on. In the eight years that have passed, I have never cried about 9/11. I've felt horrified and sorry for the families that were involved in it, but never the need to cry. However, listening to Kevin Cosgrove's recording ... I cried.

I am so very, very sorry for your loss and how you must feel, knowing that all of us, from so far away, have heard your husband's final words. I felt I needed to write something, so I was glad I found this page.

May God bless, and may your family find some comfort. x

I'm a 19-year-old from Leicester, England. I saw the BBC documentary on the phone calls, and I must say this guy is a real hero. His family, as well as all the other families involved, are the strongest people I have heard of.

You are in my thoughts, and we will never forget you.

I heard Kevin's call on television today, and I have to say that I think it will stay with me forever. His voice at the end brings me to tears every time. This one man has impacted and touched so many lives. He is a true hero. May he, and all other American civilians who died, rest in peace.  x x x

I heard Kevin's call today on YouTube. I felt so helpless listening to him. I won't ever forget his voice at the end of the call. Terrorism has taken away so many innocent lives, cut short families and careers, and represents a universal problem. It needs to be fought with utmost resolve, and Kevin displayed great resolve until he met his violent end. Rest in peace, Kevin. May God give his wife and children strength and resolve to cope up with their great loss. I hope there are no further 9-11s.

There are no words to express the feeling I had in my heart in the last few seconds of that audio tape. His last cry was just so depressing and scary to me. 9/11 is a day I will never forget. God bless the family who heard that tape ... truly gut wrenching for me personally.

Rest in peace, Kevin. You are so brave, and though I did not know you, you have touched my heart.

As a dispatcher, listening to this call really breaks my heart and sends chills through my body. I can't imagine having been the person to take his call. He and another victim who got through to 911 that day, Melissa Doi, are the voices of 9/11 for me. I hope to God I never have to take a call like that. Rest in peace, Kevin. You will never be forgotten.

I can't stop crying. You are a brave hero!

I just heard and saw the tape. It touched me deeply, and I hope you and your family are doing well. I'm 22, and I am pretty cold-hearted. But the tape made me cry a little bit. It should've never happened.

Just thinking about Kevin today.

Kevin slowly died, and millions of us choked. The dispatchers were helpless. So were the fire fighters. It touched me. Kevin is a brave hero who will be remembered forever. We should never forget.

One more flower from me, with love.

*** Posted by Nadia on 2009-08-21 ***

Rest in peace, brother!
