Airport security tightened in Burbank and long-held emotions were cut loose in Glendale as news surfaced Sunday that U.S. Navy Special Forces had killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. “It was the first time I cried in a long time, since we buried my brother,” said Brandon Valvo, a Glendale native whose brother Carlton Valvo II died at the World Trade Center when terrorist planes struck on Sept. 11, 2001. Valvo said a torrent of emotion coursed through him when he learned bin Laden had been killed, from elation and long-simmering anger, to gratitude for the work of U.S. armed forces and political leaders.

The terrorists attacked the World Trade Center towers, not the Statue of Liberty. Why? The WTC symbolized earthly success. It symbolized economic initiative and entrepreneurship. The terrorists were Islamic fundamentalists, and the word "Islam" means submission to God, but in truth all serious religious people regard the independent mind as evil -- Muslims, Christians, Buddhists alike.

Darleene Barrientos and Josh Kleinbaum With a mix of sadness and resiliency, Glendale residents remembered the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, with two solemn ceremonies Thursday, a moment of silence behind City Hall in the morning and a ceremony at Fire Station 21 in the evening. While both ceremonies addressed the events of two years ago, when terrorists flew airplanes into both towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and a Pennsylvania field, speakers at the evening ceremony focused on the country's response to the attacks, not the damage inflicted by them.

This Sept. 11 marked the sixth year since Americans watched in disbelief as passenger airplanes were used as weapons to fly into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a Pennsylvania field. America and most of the world held its breath as the realization came that terrorists piloted these planes, that thousands had died and that nothing was ever going to be the same for our country. Although that day was one wrapped in tragedy, it was also a day that exemplified the true meaning of American hero.

It was just before 2:30 in the afternoon of Sunday Dec. 7, 1941 when a New York radio station interrupted the broadcast of the New York Giants football game with a shocking news bulletin: The Japanese had staged a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Naval base in Hawaii. Broadcast of the game quickly resumed after the brief report. It was the same across America as NBC, CBS and other radio networks broke into Sammy Kaye's Sunday Serenade, a performance of the “Inspector General,” an intellectual discussion of Canada's role in the war in Europe - and then returned to normal programming.
