Question Of The Week 07-23-18

What are the most shocking moments you have seen broadcast on live TV? Does anything shock you anymore?

  1. Definitely 9/11. Yes I still feel shocked when I see what a human being can do to another human being.

  2. 9/11. I will never get that image out of my head.

  3. Reporters shouting personal questios to victims of tragedies. I will never get used to that.

  4. 9/11. That said, I cannot watch the news at all these days. The doom, the gloom and the nastiness hurts.

  5. Watching the apartment fire in England shocked me but mostly it all seems like just more of the same doesn't it? Unless it happens to you it just doesn't seem real.

  6. The biggest in my youth was the JFK assassination

  7. Yes, I was around for JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, etc, but I think 9/11 was the worst, though. Almost as shocking and unbelievable to me was election night, November 2016.

  9. 9/11 was the only genuine shocking moment that I had watched on live t.v. (saw it at work). Beyond that, absolutely nothing shocks me anymore as I think I'm become desensitized to all of the horror/depravity that is going on in the world today.

  10. Everything I see on TV continues to shock me and I try to remember that this has happened for centuries, usually in other places, other countries but without the TV and Internet availability to spread like a virus and that I just have to meditate.

  11. We were still in shock and horror about JFK when Oswald was shot in front the cameras and I thought what have we become. Since then there has been one horror after another with 911 doing us all in. The media brings it all into our living rooms.

  13. Ahhh...yes. Most definitely the events of September 11. The events (images; a personal story) are FOREVER embedded in my mind, in my heart...and in my soul. Karen

  15. The Twin Towers...I was up all through the night (Monday night our time here) watching the tragedy unfold. I couldn't leave my TV screen. Without any sleep, it went into work the next morning...the Tuesday morning, Australian Eastern Time...before 6 am...closer to 5.30 am than 6...and knocked on the door of my bosses' home...they lived on the property (I was cooking at Gunabul Restaurant/Function House in Gympie at the time).

    I woke them up and told them they had to switch on the TV...they'd slept through what had happened and what was going on.

    9/11 distressed me greatly...and I still can't watch replays of the Twin Towers....cold shivers run up and down my spine, and I have to use my remote control.
