I was twelve when the towers were hit. I can remember everything clearly. I saw and learned a lot that day. I've heard Mr. Cosgrove's call, and it really shows what everyone in those towers went through that day. My heart goes out to his family and friends, and also to every other person who went through what he did.

God bless you and your family and everyone else that lost someone due to this tragic event.

I never knew this young man. We never chatted. Or once even saw each other. However, I know he was a good person. A family of his own back home. Young children who want their daddy to hold them once again tightly and never let go.

I saw the video on Youtube and it struck my heart. God bless you, Kevin, and your family and friends. See ya in Heaven someday.

My wife and I visited New York and Ground Zero for the second time in May 2006. As we walked around the site my wife saw the plaque with the names of all the poor souls that perished on that sad day that the free world will never forget. As she was looking, she saw the name "Kevin Cosgrove"! She just tapped me on the shoulder and pointed at the name. It was my name, and it sent a cold shiver down both our spines. When we arrived back to the UK, we tapped the name "Kevin Cosgrove" into the search engine and were amazed at how many hits came up about Kevin. The trial had just finished of the terrorist who played a part in the murder of all the poor victims of that terrible day, and there was the audio and transcript of Mr Cosgrove's plight. It saddened both myself and my wife about how he suffered during and up to the time of his death. He was one of many, but he will never be forgotten purely because he shared my name. Rest in peace.

i don't think any 9/11 related thing has ever affected me as much as this recording. When he was making the call would he never in a million years think that people would be listening to his final moments for years to follow and how many people would be so moved by it. What a brave, brave man. God bless you.

I am a Chinese girl, age 19. When the events of 9-11 took place, I just was too young and too far away to get the shock. Six years later, I am really sad and shocked reviewing 9-11 and hearing Kevin's call! There's no politics, no nations, and no races in my head. Maybe my thoughts are just as innocent as 6 years ago. But it is LIFE that I am feeling--the meaning of life, the value of living, and a common person's life! He's yelling for his life! LIFE--please treasure it.

I will never ever forget Kevin Cosgrove as long as I live. I listened to his last moments on earth, and it was evident that he had no clue of what had happened on 9/11. I will keep his family in my prayers every day. I pray for all the families who lost loved ones on that fateful day. God Bless them, and God Bless America.

I just heard his last words... It's very touching... His last words were GOD. I still cry when I see scenes of 9/11. I can understand how America must have felt. His soul rests and lives in eternity.

Having grown up in New York I know how hard it was that terrible day. I heard the video for the first time and it bought tears to my eyes. Kevin was a victim and truly a hero who had his family ahead of anything. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and God Bless you all.

9/11 has always been in the back of my mind.

Tonight, I heard for the first time Kevin's 911 call. Part of me wishes I would have never heard something so heartbreaking. Another part of me says that it is good to have learned about someone like Kevin.

A victim for sure. A good employee. A great guy. An incredible husband and father! A person who had their family's best interest in mind no matter what was happening to him.

I am truly inspired by that and can only wish to be half the man that Kevin is.

God bless him. God bless his precious family. There are many heroes in heaven. I do look forward to meeting him.

I was another person who had become a bit "jaded" about 9-11, and this being the anniversary, I thought to search YouTube for footage to help me remember that actual day a bit better. And I found Mr. Cosgrove's tape. He was obviously an executive, a fighter, someone who was used to getting things done, maybe even a bit of an asshole, or maybe that was just the stress. He was so alive and vital and just a regular man, and then to hear him start to realize ... and his heartbreaking horror as the tower collapsed ... it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I was about to have lunch, but I couldn't eat; my stomach felt turned upside down. His words are still echoing in my mind, they have made that whole day more real to me than I think it had ever been. I hope to God he is at peace now, whatever lies beyond this life. My thoughts are with him and his family.

Kevin was my uncle, and I thank you all for being so appreciative of such a video. Some have posted about the video on youtube.com very vulgar statements regarding this event and the death of my uncle, and it comforts me to know that there are sympathetic people in the world who can feel my pain and the pain of my family with me. I cry every time I see this video, but, in a sense, the recording of my Uncle Kevin's last words lets me know how much love he had for his family, and that life is very sacred, and we should not take it for granted. Once again, thank you all for posting such kind things on this website. Kevin was a wonderful person who always believed that you should "eat dessert first." After his death, my entire family felt touched by his belief that life was short, and that you should never take advantage of the beautiful lives many lead, as life is a gift that may be taken from anyone at any time. Kevin's children have also been changed greatly from the death of their father, and it is very comforting to know that many people, even those who do not know him, are there to support his wife, his children, and his extended family, such as myself. Thank you. God bless.

If I was ever put into a situation that could ever come close to 9/11, I only hope to have an ounce of courage that Mr. Cosgrove possessed on that chilling phone call. God bless his soul and all of those whose lives were lost on that horrible day.

i feel your humanity.

I think that 9/11 was sad.... I felt like crying when I heard Kevin Cosgrove's phone call, and at the end I felt like busting with tears! I am sure today Kevin's family still hurts, but remember, he walks with you every day, and he smiles on you, so he's never far!

*** Posted by Sharon Carr on 2007-09-11 ***

I'm yet another to stumble across this recording, and, yes, I'm yet another that has now, six years on, only really begun to fully appreciate what happened on that fateful day. Last night, Kevin's last words played through my head time and time again, keeping me awake for hours. My thoughts and prayers are with Kevin's family and friends, and one day you will all be reunited in a much less cruel world. R.I.P.

Love from England

You will never be forgotten.... I pray you are in the arms of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

You are not forgotten. Rest in peace.

I worked with Kevin many years ago and followed his career from first meeting till my retirement from Kemper Re. I will always remember his helpfulness and goodness. I now teach in a school system and often refer to him and the tragic loss that can come at any time. He will always be remembered. God must really love him.

*** Posted by Paul on 2007-09-11 ***

I will never in my life forget what I felt as I listened to Kevin's final words.... I hope that he can rest in peace, and God Bless America.... We will never forget.
