Ich habe gestern eine Reportage gesehen über den Anschlag auf World Trade Center. Auch wenn es so viele Jahre her ist, nimmt es mich sehr mit. Ich muss jedes mal schrecklich weinen. Als ich Mr. X fallen sah, war es sehr erschreckend für mich. Überhaupt, wo ich die ganzen Leute sah, die winkten und riefen um Hilfe und doch wußten Sie, daß keine Hilfe rechtzeitig kommen würde. Nur dieser Gedanke daran ist sehr traurig. Deshalb möchte ich allen sagen: Leute streitet euch nicht und hällt immer zusammen, es sind nur Kleinigkeiten. Das Leben kann so schnell vorbei sein. Gott segne Euch. Ich bete für euch alle.

--Magda aus Deutschland

[Ed. - Hello! Yesterday I saw a report about the attack on the World Trade Center. Even though it was so many years ago, it still grabs me. Every time I have to cry terribly. As I saw Mr. X fall, I was very frightened. In general, where I saw all the people calling for help, and you knew nevertheless that no help would come in time, just that thought in itself is very sad. Therefore, I would like to say to everyone: Don't argue over little things. Get together. Life can be gone in an instant. May God bless you. I pray for you all. Magda from Germany.]

To start with, I want to say to Norbeto's family I'm so sorry for what happened. He is in a better world now and watching upon you guys. May God have him and his sister in law in peace. I saw "the falling man" last night and most of you guys are confused, and it hurts me to read how people describe him as "the falling man". That is not his name. That is not what he stands for. He is not the falling man. Stop hurting this family by saying he is. It was someone else. No one is even sure who he was. r.i.p. Norberto

I am a 13 year old and just learned about Norberto at school today. I pray for his family and all the others who lost loved ones at the World Trade Center. It was a really sad day in the U.S.

Hello, my Name is Nicole, and I live in Germany. On RTL 2 I saw a screen record dedicated to 9/11. I'm so shocked it's 2008, but it is so bad to see what's happened in 2001. I just wanna say that I hope you are all okay, and I'm sure that your dad and husband is in a safer place now. He looks at you all and is suitable yourselves. I don't believe that the falling man was Norberto Hernandez. I hope the falling man didn't have any pain. I hope that nobody forgets 9/11. It was a bad day for the world, especially for America, but in my thoughts, I'm with you. I hope you understand my English and what I mean. God bless you and America!

Best wishes,

I have seen the "Falling Man" (Roberto Hernandez) on TV. I think he was a good man. I was scared for him.

The documentary about Norberto has just been viewed in UK on the Discovery channel - I just wanted to add my sincere condolences for what has happened to you all - so very moving. I am not normally overly emotional but was brought to tears. God bless you all.

I just wanted to say the pic caught my attention, made me look into myself and think about my life. God Bless the families of those that died that day.
God bless you Mr.Norberto Hernandez and the family he left behind.

I was a police officer around the WTC, and I had run into Mr. Hernandez on occasion, we would talk about baseball from time to time, I never knew what happened to him, until I watched the falling man. I recognized him right away, my heart goes out to his family and friends, the world is empty without him in it...... God bless u all!

I am so sorry for what you and your family went through. The horror of that awful day can never be known to those who didn't live through it. I will pray for you and your family until my dying day.

Yesterday I saw the documentary "The Falling Man" here in Portugal. I would like to offer my condolences to the family of Norberto Hernandez. I was very impressed when I saw on television the horror of that day. I just can't believe what was happening. God bless you all.
