Even if I never knew you, I imagine what you went through, Kevin.... I hope you rest in peace now.

I was in Belgium when it happened. Even if I am not an American citizen, I cried each time the towers collapsed. Let us never forget this barbarian act, and I hope one day all free people of the world will march together to victory and avenge your death and the death of all the other victims of 9/11 and other terrorist strikes.

Rest in peace.

I can't begin to imagine what you went through, Kevin. I hope you are now at peace. I think of your family, too, and hope you can all be together again someday.

I listened to Kevin's last phone call from the South Tower, and I did indeed find it sad and disturbing. Kevin, you will forever remain in your loved one's hearts. You were taken from this earth too soon by something we will never understand or know the truth about. Rest in eternal peace.

My prayers go out to your family today. I watched your video for the first time today. It broke my heart. I don't know you, but you sound like an amazing husband and father. The memory of you will remain with us forever.

I'm sure you will be missed deeply. x

What words could possibly express the absolute stark horror of hearing your final moments. I wanted to scream with you, but nothing would come out. All I could do is cry. I would like to forget, but I feel it is my duty never to do so. We must always remember; you deserve our remembrance, our tears, our absolute anguish. I can't even bring myself to speak to my wife about your last moments. It is more than my soul can bear. I hope that you can forget those agonizing moments.

I saw that video, and I'm very sad....  I don't have the words to express what I want to say.

I had heard this recording before and was very interested in who this guy was. Who was this man who had the ability to show humor during this tragic situation? We have all seen the footage.... Kevin's voice puts us right smack inside the tragedy. I never want to lose that feeling that I had that day ... the worst day of my life. I never want to forget.

I just listened for the first time to that audio tape of Mr. Cosgrove's 9-11 call. It was very sad to hear. I could not even fathom the thought of anyone's last moments on earth being like that. I can only imagine how frightened he must've been. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you all.

I must say that I heard the audio for the first time today and that it was the most terrifying feeling! I always pictured the loss of the towers, and I knew that actual people were there, but to NOW hear what KEVIN was feeling and experiencing really BROKE my heart.

I must say ... we never know when our day is to come.... We should always be prepared with GOD in our hearts and remember that JESUS is real.... If EVIL is to take control of a situation ... we should grab on to the promise of ETERNAL LIFE! ... HAVE FAITH IN WHAT IS FOREVER...!

We love you and will never forget how you died for the U.S.

Rest in peace.... Love from Sweden.

I didn't know him but my heart aches. Words can never describe emotional pain. If my arms could extend around the whole world, I would have lifted them all out that day. I send all my love to you.

What a terrible, needless tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I can't begin to imagine his terror and confusion at what was happening to him and to the other victims in those towers. No words can express my sadness for his family's loss. I understand that he had young children, and they have been cheated and robbed of having their father in their lives. This tragedy transcends religions, countries, and time. He will never be forgotten by myself or the millions of others around the world.

I'm from England, and I recently went on the Internet and looked through the 9/11 archives. I came across the phone call between Kevin and the operator, and it upset me deeply. I didn't know Kevin, but listening to that call, I felt the fear he must have felt. I would just like to send my thoughts and best wishes to his family and friends. God bless all those whose lives were affected by the events of 9-1-1. xxxx

Two words: NEVER FORGET!

I sometimes google 9/11 because it was a day that I will never forget when I came across this site. I was working with an American guy at the time in the UK when a colleague ran in--believing that the first tower hit was a plane accident. At first I didn't realise where it was--because he referred to the building as the "twin towers" versus "WTC" as I knew it. I had in fact stood on the 110th floor less than a year earlier--a treat paid for by an American friend of my Chinese work colleague, whom he hadn't seen for 7 years. 9/11 is a day that showed all extremes of human emotion: despicable cruelty, compassion, love, hurt, helplessness, suffering, courage--whilst others in some parts of the world celebrated. John and his family, and the lady and fire officer answering his pleas, and all those who were also caught up, should be proud that they stood and still stand the strongest in moments of utter despair.

From time to time, I google things about 9/11. I have never forgotten, nor will I ever forget, one of the worst days that humanity has ever seen. I wish I had never stumbled across this, but I did, and I listened to Mr. Cosgrove's last moments, and the sorrow is so great it leaves one breathless. I truly hope that his family has continued on to lead good lives, in honor of him, despite the void his death created. I pray for all the victims families, and for the world. May we one day all live in peace.

I am only 15 years old. I don't even live in America, but the day those towers fell was a day I'll remember for the rest of my life. My heart froze with pain for all those that had died and those that were still dying, the children who had lost their parents, the husbands and wives who had lost each other, the families who were never to see their loved ones again, the people who did everything they could to save others, the heroes who died that awful day. That was the day that I sat on the end of my bench, tears pouring down my cheeks, in silence, praying for all the people who had died and praying that no more lives were lost. My heart went out to all those families who had lost someone. Hearing the tape of Kevin's call made me cry so hard for his family, and it was just terrible the way he was taken from this world. He didn't deserve to die. His wife and young children didn't deserve to have their father/husband taken from them. Kevin died a hero, he tried desperately to get help for him and those that were with him. May he rest in peace. To all of those that died in the attacks, may you rest in peace! I can't imagine what you are going through!

All my love,
xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.
