A fact about 9/11 you never hear about

On the evening of September 11, 2001, thousands of Iranian people gathered in Madar Square, on the north side of Tehran, in a spontaneous candlelight vigil to express sympathy and support for the American People. They could have been executed for this act of bravery. Not saying people in that country weren’t cheering (cause many of them were), but more than 90 countries actually lost citizens on this day 14 years ago. There is always some good to find if you look hard enough.

Some coincidental 9-11 foreshadowing going on in this Supertramp album cover from 1979. Never noticed it until now. Officially creepy.

Every time I look at the clock

Okay, I know this is weird. It seems like every time I look at the clock, it’s 9:11. I usually see this once per day. In the car, at home, out in public. It freaks me out. Does this happen to anyone else?

Family lost in corn maze calls 911

Connors Farms in Danvers

From Boston.com

A family from Everett lost in a maze carved out of a cornfield at Connors Farms in Danvers last night called 911 before being rescued.

“I don’t see anyone and I’m really scared, it’s really dark and we got a 3-week old baby with us,” a woman told the 911 operator.

Danvers Police Spokesman Robert Bettencourt emailed a voice recording of the 911 call to the media this afternoon.

“The victim does not want to be identified in any way on this incident and we are respectfully requesting that you honor their request,” Bettencourt wrote.

Connors Farms did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

The family, who said they paid about $15 to enter the tourist attraction, called 911 around 7 p.m. last night, about an hour after the maze closed.

“I just can’t believe they didn’t send anyone to come and check on anybody, the people that run this,” the 42-year-old husband said. “They close at six. We’re the only ones in here.”

The 911 operator told the man not to “let your wife freak out”

The operator then asked the man if he heard police dogs barking and told him repeatedly to yell “Hello K-9” to get the dogs’ attention.

The call lasted 7 minutes and 22 seconds before the family was rescued.

“Thank you so much,” the woman told the operator. “Never again …We thought this was fun. Instead it was a nightmare.”

She Was the One

You’ll see and hear a lot of things in remembrance of 9-11. Some of the short stories (like this one) might get lost in the noise. Take a moment and watch a touching video about Richie and Karen. (via StoryCorps)
