    To my British brothers...

    I had heard of this, but had not seen it.

    Thank you.

    Thats an example of why England in my humble opinion is the second greatest country in the world. The English have always had class. They can't help it. It's a natural trait of that nation. I echo Mac with the Thank You. I would go to war with and for England in a heartbeat.

    F-ing a right! Our men and women not only give us freedom but they fight for other countries as well. When we were attacked, every country should have been playing our song and praying for us. We scratch everyones back, and they should do the same. Its just some Countries have more respect than others and will show it. +1 for England

    I think there were many spontaneous and planned tributes that happened around the world.

    I think that video is a good reminder, that many mourned for us and with us that day.

    I'm a new member on here, and I hope nobody minds me posting on this old thread.

    I just wanted to say how nice it is that many of you guys speak about us with the same respect and fondness we have towards you.

    I believe the US and the UK are the only true 24/7 allies out there. When the shit has hit the fan, you need to know who you can rely on, to stand by you and to fly their colours alongside you.

    God Save The Queen and God Bless America.

    That's quite alright, for I had never seen the thread or video before.

    What got to me is that there were actually people in your country crying in that video clip. That says alot in my book. This just goes to show that there are some countries out there that are still worth fighting for and are glad to be allies with.

    God Save The Queen.

    I've never seen this before either and I'm glad this thread was salvaged.

    I, too, would like to say thank you and watching this made my proud of my British heritage

    +1 for the support. It was a beautiful rendition too.

    Of course I'm biased, but I think that our national anthem is among the most beautiful and awe-inspiring songs in the world. I know that the tune has a rather common history, but paired with the lyrics, meaning, and the grandeur it is played with now, I think it has most other anthems beat hands down. Honest to God, I get a lump in my throat and even tear up a bit whenever I hear it at ball games, etc.

    Same here, Thank you for posting it and Thank England for the Tribute.

    I remember that day and the days that followed and one of the most amazing things that came out of the horror was all the support that came from hear and abroad, just a few to mention, our fellow LEO's, from near and far, Rescue Workers from all over, Ordinary Citizens offering help, blood, supplies and moral support. The support of words or patriotism from abroad. Believe me when I say this, it was heartfelt, it kept alot of us going, even while most of us were running on empty. So THANK YOU!
