John Gibson on Sirius 145 played the audiotape of Kevin Cosgrove on the radio the other day. I could not really hear it. It sounds compelling and moving from the comments I have read about it. I would like to hear it.... I have not forgotten 9-11 and never will.

I'm so sorry for hearing that call from him. It was spine chilling. Goodbye, God bless America.

For 8 years now I've lived with the memory of 9/11.... We all have our own stories of that day, and hearing your 9-1-1 call made me feel as though it were happening all over again. I am so sorry for what you had to go through. The terror of your voice in your final moments will be with me forever. You were a brave, innocent soul who was taken far too soon and will be forever missed.

This summer I'll be visiting ground-zero again, and you'll be in my thoughts, as always. I pray your family and friends find some comfort. God bless.

I was so very disturbed listening to Kevin's 9-1-1 call. I cannot imagine what he must have felt at that moment. May his family know that they are always in our hearts, and this tragedy will never be forgotten.

I wish you well. The video I viewed of your last cry for help on this earth touched my soul. I cannot imagine the bravery that you had to withstand the position you were in on 9-11. I wish you peace, and I hope your family has found peace after your death. May God bless  your family.

It's so sad Kevin Cosgrove had to die this horrible way! My prayers are with his family. So many died when the towers fell: fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers—people families needed! 9-11 will go down in history as the worst attack on America 'cause of all of the American people who went down with the towers, Pentagon, flight93. I can feel their fear in knowing that it was hopeless, but they died as heroes, and their memories will live on, and they won't be forgotten. Rest in peace, Kevin Cosgrove, and all who passed away on that tragic September day. And God help the USA and the families of the victims.

Your scream sent chills down my spine. I can tell you were a very nice man, and no one deserved what happened. Many people lost their lives. I've learned to live today as though it were your last. Never say, "I hate you," or anything like that because if that was the person you said you hated's last day ... you could never apologize. I can't believe I kept listening because now I cannot sleep. I just can't stop thinking about how hard you tried to get to your family. R.I.P., Kevin Cosgrove! You're my new hero and always will be!

My deepest condolences to Mr. Cosgrove's family. Let's enjoy every moment in life and live in the present. I hope the family of Mr. Cosgrove finds peace and strength in these heartfelt messages.

I pray for your family.

Kevin's last words, in that split second when he realized the building was falling down, lent words to all who were still trapped inside to those who were not able to get through on the phone lines.... I imagine that the thousands still inside at the time of collapse shared that terror together.... Thank you, Kevin, for giving a voice to all of those who were still inside. I'm horrified at what you and so so many others suffered that day. May God be with your family.

God bless ... so sorry to your family and friends ... horrible, just horrible. R.I.P.

*** Posted by Steven on 2009-02-19 ***

I also heard Mr. Cosgrove's call.... It was horrible to hear this father and husband and friend and neighbour struggling for life and fighting to be with his family.... My thoughts will always be with the families and friends who lost their mums and dads, grandparents and children, life partners and friends, colleagues and employees—even after 8 years the 9/11 terror is still present in our minds.

Most chilling thing I've ever heard. God bless Kevin's  family....

I listened to the phone call, and I cried. It was so sad hearing your voice and realizing the position you were in. 9/11 should never had happened, and on that day too many innocent people died, and I wish you all rest in peace. xx

I heard the 911 call today for the first time on youtube and am deeply saddened for Mr. Cosgrove, his family, and all those individuals who lost their lives on that fateful day. Those last words I heard on the recording will forever be a painful reminder of 9-11 and will haunt me for the rest of my life. If anything, though, hearing the audio has put things into perspective for me. Having been laid off recently from my job and struggling to make ends meet, this has made me realize that there are more important things in life than just working and making a living: things like loved ones, your family, spouse, siblings, etc, and treating them every day as if it were going to be their last day. God, I pray that you watch over his wife and children, that you ease their pain and suffering, and that they are able to continue with their lives. God bless all of you, and peace be with you.

It is February 3, 2009, and I have just come across this website. I listened to Kevin's 911 call on a youtube.com video at work. It makes me so angry once again that terrorists could DO such a thing. It's still so surreal to me that 9/11 even happened. I remember it like it was yesterday—but then again, who doesn't? I was in my first semester of college then, and I am now married with a child of my own. I simply can't imagine my husband being in one of the towers and how you—his family—must have felt. As the song goes, "Have you forgotten?" I haven't. And I don't think anyone else should. It's always going to haunt us; it's always going to be a part of our history. Much love to all.

Searching through Youtube I found the recording of Mr. Cosgrove's call. I was brought to tears listening to the final moments of his life. It was difficult to sleep; his voice kept echoing in my head. My heart hurts that he and so many were lost on that day. To Mr. Cosgrove's family, I would like to offer my deepest condolences, and I will continue to pray for you and others who lost loved ones on that day. Please know that all who were lost are not forgotten, and they never will be for generations to come.

I happened to hear the whole tape on You Tube. It is easy to judge, but I noticed how he exclaims, "I am not an old man and am too young too die." I was in a near fatal car crash myself as a teenager. I froze for a second and then slammed on the brakes and swerved hard left so the direct impact was on the passenger side which was unoccupied. It may be just me, but he seems kind of cowardly and selfish to me, listening to the whole clip. He is not a kid like I was when I was in that almost fatal accident. I, too, in the that split second when I thought I was about to die, thought about the Lord, but I just could not freeze. It is the strangest thing because, according to the experts, it is natural to freeze.  Oh, well, judgments and temperaments aside, 9/11 was a tragedy nobody should have had to have endured.

I think Kevin's voice will be heard for generations to come, for centuries to come, to bring home the horror of that day. Love is deathless. The human tent can not contain it, and his love continues for his wife and children. May Kevin rest in peace. May the Lord console his loved ones.

R.I.P., Kevin. You will not be forgotten.
