I was watching it live in our local channel here in Manila when this terrible thing happened. Last night I came across the 911 call on youtube, and it was the saddest phone conversation I have heard in my life. Kevin and the other victims will never be forgotten. I hope and pray that this will never happen again. Rest in peace, Kevin.

I did not know anyone personally who lost their life, but it has always been a piece of me. I changed that day, as I believe many people did. I just heard this story for my first time tonight, and I am deeply touched and saddened. I pray that you know that there are perfect strangers that care for you, and from the bottom of my heart I pray for peace within you all. I WILL NEVER FORGET! NEVER!

I just wanted to say that, Kevin, you are truly missed. I didn't know you, but hearing your last moments broke my heart, and it is something I will remember forever. My prayers go out to your family and friends. May they find strength in knowing what a wonderful, strong, brave man you were.

To Kevin and the Cosgrove Family:

I think about you often. As I view our family's home movies and pictures, I see your smiling face, hear your unforgettable laugh, and remember all the good times we had. You were at our house for parties, and you hung out with my dad and uncle Jamie. The times I was lucky enough to join my father, you were always nice and fun to be around. You were very brave and will always be remembered as a hero.

I hope that you are at peace and that your family remains strong and will always have fond memories of you!

Your friend,
Amy Horton

Even in the final moment you continued to be brave. Your children will grow up remembering the wonderful Dad that you were and forever a hero in their hearts and ours.

We have not forgotten you or the others whom perished that infamous day, Kevin. I cannot tell you what hearing your voice, hearing your screams did to me. You and the other victims of 9/11 experienced "hell on earth" when it was not even necessary. I have sent prayers up for your family and other's families on this quiet day. We will NEVER forget.

It's another year gone by, and I would like to remember everyone who perished on 9/11, but especially Kevin, whose last words are in my thoughts for all time. Its been 2 years since I posted a message here, but I often think about him and his poor family. Rest in peace. The UK is thinking of you all.

I have not been able to stop thinking about what you went through. I pray for your family's strength. I wish there could have been something, anything that I could have done to take away that suffering. You were so brave, and such a hero. You represent what so many others faced that day, and please know you will never, ever be forgotten. For many of us, you have left an imprint on our hearts forever.

I worked for Aon in London since 2003, and feel that although I never met you I still know you from the emails to and from you on our files. I feel so sad that people just woke up one day and thought it would be serving a greater good to take people's lives. People who did nothing wrong than go to work, or catch a flight. Best wishes to your family, and I will pray for them to keep strong.

To the Cosgrove family... A hug and prayer from miles away. I am sitting here with tears running down my face. Today, I ache for people I have never met... I hurt for those who are hurting. Please know that there are strangers who care deeply for you. You're in my thoughts. xo

Unforgettable. Unforgotten.

I am so sorry. I feel the pain of the families and friends we all have lost.

Oh, how we wish this had not happened to you, Kevin, and to all those unfortunate enough to be in and around the twin towers on 9/11. It never gets any less shocking, sad, or traumatic. In fact, it gets worse. So many heroes, so much given--you will have your reward. We think of you all always.

Mr Kevin Cosgrove,

I may be only 15 and living in Australia, but I have a lot of sympathy towards you. I wondered to myself the other day, "What if the towers didn't collapse, and what if the fireman had got there a lot quicker? Would you still be here to watch your children grow up and to wake up every morning next to your wife?" I'm always wondering that, if you got saved a lot quicker, that the terrible pain that you had to go through, you wouldn't be going through that. You'll be missed dearly by your loved ones. The pain that you must have suffered in those last minutes of your life! I feel deeply saddened when I heard that 9-11 call. Rest in peace.

My name's Matthew Coates. I Live in New Zealand. I'm only 16 years of age. I came across this video and watched it because I was curious about the twin tower attacks and wanted to know what happened. When I was 10 seconds through this video, I'm thinking to myself "... oh my, this is real, this isn't fake." I knew that the tower would eventually fall down, but I actually paused it near the end and thought to myself, "Should I continue watching this, this misery and crying for help?" I made the decision to continue watching until the tower finally collapsed. I may not be related to this guy, or anyone in the tower, but this video has, in a way, changed the way I think about this diabolical event. This guy must have gone through absolute hell. His screaming for help, and his final words, "Oh, God, Oh!" This video will haunt me for the rest of my life. I even have bad dreams about it now.

Here's something for Kevin: Kevin M. Cosgrove, I may have never met you, but I feel now I've known you for years. The pain and suffering that you went through on that day has really upset and spoken to me. You, and all the other people in the Twin Tower attack, didn't deserve to die that way. People should never be in a situation where they are trapped, no way out, calling on a phone, gasping for air. Kevin M. Cosgrove, even though you went through all that misery, I wish and hope for you to rest in peace.

And also everybody else in the building who went through all the pain and suffering, I wish for you to rest in peace. I don't know why I posted a message on this site. I don't even live in America, but my heart was telling me to post this message. But I'm glad I did now. In fact, I feel better that I have done this. But, anyway, all the people in the towers who died: Rest in peace.

Lay your heads upon your bed ... and rest well.
We will stand here watching while you sleep.
September's blanket drapes so softly on you,
And you can be assured ... 'your guard' we'll keep.

It seems like yesterday you both curled up there,
Embraced together as you fell asleep,
Two friends holding tight onto each other,
Sinking into dreams so very deep.

The world outside your tender sleep is hostile,
But there's no trace of fear within your dreams,
And just like toddlers lost in thoughts of candy ...
For the two of you ... that's how it seems.

Lay your heads upon your bed and rest well.
We will stand here watching over you.
September and her arms will always hold you,
And the watch we keep upon you will stay true.

I am not an American citizen, but when I heard Mr. Cosgrove's recording, it sent chills down my spine. How horrible his and the thousands of others' fate has been. I hope people do not forget the lessons to be learned from that day. May he rest in peace.

*** Posted by Jennifer on 2008-09-06 ***

R.I.P., Kevin M. Cosgrove. Even if I never knew you, if the twin tower were still here today, then you wouldn't have suffered a horrible death. I don't understand how it happened, but it shouldn't have from the start. Every single time I looked at the 9/11 video on youtube, it made me think of all the people, including you, who died a death that you shouldn't die from. I hope you feel really happy where you are now. R.I.P., KEVIN M. COSGROVE.
