The Top Ten

1 The Death

We had to bow our head in silence at our school and some kid said DEEZ NUTS! It's pretty pathetic that kids don't care that many people died at that event. - JaysTop10List

Last year, I drew a picture for 9/11 and over it, I wrote down every single name I could fit onto the page. I must've been written down at least one to two hundred names and I barely even cracked the "b"'s. That was a really difficult and one of the most eye opening things I've ever done. - keycha1n

We had a moment of silence for 9/11 at school and some of the kids kept yelling 21. It's just sad. The deaths... Many people died because of terrorist.

People are racist

2 The Reason

Not that complicated at all, virtually every single thing that many top tenners like to do is exactly what the suicide bombers want to stop them from doing permanently.

The reason we were attacked by Alkaida(Sorry, don't know how to spell it.) is, in simple terms, because "They didn't like our way of life". Its sickening. - SomeRandomStickboy

You may want to learn some of the other contributing factors - US policies and practices abroad - government and big business - for decades. I'm not saying these provide legitimate excuses or reasons for horrible acts of the worst kind, but that it's a little more complicated than not liking our way of life - unless you include everything done as part of "our way of life", which could prove hypocritical - Billyv

4 The Slow Deaths

A lot of people in 9/11 lost their lives to slow, painful deaths because they couldn't breath in the rubble, smoke, and debris. - SomeRandomStickboy

America will someday die a slow painful death.

5 The Security

You have to take your SHOES off when you go to the airplane. Over-secure much? - Turkeyasylum

Because of 9/11, so many things were restricted on airlines that now its hard to move around without being told to do something you don't want to do at all. - SomeRandomStickboy

I vote this because I don't really care about deaths (I'm so psychopath) - ComelCumil

6 The Trauma

Really, after 15 years they STILL can't get over a supposedly awful event. Common, get a grip and do something more productive.

People can still hear the echos of screams and explosions ringing in their ears. And they can still see the blood and debris falling from over 300 ft. - SomeRandomStickboy

7 The Forgotten

People can act like we're the bad guys for pointing out 9/11, but they don't understand that it was a traumatizing event that changed the country for worse. People were burned alive in those buildings, and at least 3,000 died in there alone-some by suicide. - Garythesnail

Lots of people died that day. It may not be the saddest day in history (or anywhere near that), but it's still a terrible tragedy. - Turkeyasylum

So many people have no idea how horrifying it is that some even joke about 9/11. Its horrible. - SomeRandomStickboy

Shut up Gary, yo, me the ass man, is American.

8 The Debris

I know I am going to be hated for this, but lets face it, no one would care about 9/11 if it wasn't in America. It is the worst thing what happened to America, fair enough, but there are another 200 countries. Did I see all this fuss on august 6th for Hiroshima? No, because since it wasn't in America, it doesn't matter. Honestly, the logic of people... I am not saying 9/11 wasn't bad, it really was awful, but some people need to realise that there are more counties than America. I know how much hate this comment will get, but it needed to be said. - gemcloben

I couldn't agree more. We have the audacity to kill people and essentially show no remorse by not even acknowledging our wrongdoings? That's messed up, and I suggest you educate yourself on both Hiroshima and The Armenian Genocide because schools are not going to teach it anytime soon. What matters is that these people are people and these people were killed and irregardless of by whom or for what reason, you acknowledge the lives lost!

Also, how come we seem to gloss over the fact that Andrew Jackson killed a bunch of Native Americans? That douche is on our $20 bill! - keycha1n

It is true that the London blitz killed so many people, and almost immediately afterward, nobody really cared that a bunch of Brits were dead.

Nothing is glossed over these days, but the revisionists like to apply modern standards to people and events from times long past.

Who would really miss the Brits though?

10 The Scar On Religion

I do agree that 9/11 destroyed people's views on Islam. - Turkeyasylum

I'm Muslim, and I agree. 9/11 is a terrible and a sad thing to do, please don't hate on every Muslim. We Muslims are not supposed to bomb or kill people, if we do that, then we are not considered Muslims. :( Please understand, terriosists are not Muslims.

Many things were bad about it, but this is one of the few that are still here.

Don't blame us Muslim.

Blame AL QAEDA AND IDOLS

The Contenders

11 The Stop

People from all over Boston who were expecting to go to New York had their plans suddenly interrupted by this event for days. - SomeRandomStickboy

12 The Conspiracy Theories

Not so much about the theories but how so many accepted uneducated theories as fact. But worst of all are the charlatans who made money off of the event by promoting those crackpot theories. - Dagger55

There were lots of theories

U mean the us goverments conspiracy theory - that 3 steelbeam buildings got destroyed by 2 planes?

13 The Jokes

I see my own humor as apathetic and twisted, but telling a 9/11 joke to many Americans is like telling a Hitler joke to a German. If told at the wrong situation to the wrong person, it can SERIOUSLY cross the line (but I'm flexible to stuff like that). - Turkeyasylum

I'm sorry Turkey, but in my opinion, people should joke about what they want. - gemcloben

9/11 was so tragic and yet famous that people started making jokes about it, especially on YouTube, by editing videos of popular shows and adding 9/11 footage and/or by making their own puns on 9/11, it just shows you how shocking it was.

This is almost exactly the same as #5 - SomeRandomStickboy

14 The Legacy

9/11 started a legacy that would last many years and one that no one would like. It separated the Islamic and the Christian worlds again (crusades), it made wars on terrorism last a decade or longer instead of shorter wars, and we still haven't let go. No one will be brought to justice, and that's is very sad to me.
