911 Through My Eyes
Where were you when you heard about 9/11? What was the scene like? Who was the first person to call you, better yet, who did you call to find out if this was really happen? What we're your thoughts?
I remember it like it was yesterday. One girl was bent over at the waist crying into her hands as her friends tried to console her and everyone around her was standing there, looking at the tv like the sky had cracked open and God himself was coming back, today was the day! Not for the second coming, but for the first real terrorist attack that America had received in my lifetime.
Consistently in a looping playback on CNN I watched, one plane, then another crashing methodically into the head of the twin towers in New York City! It seemed surreal and that moment I stood their, watching debris fall from the sky like confetti, people flooding the streets, trampling each other trying to get to a safe place but realizing that there was no safety to be found. Police officers and fireman had no answers for this, see there are some things in life you can't be prepared for until you actually experience it.
Everyone in search of answers but no one had any. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, grandmothers, grandfathers and even babies died that day. No one was exempt from the chaos of the mission that was carried that day. Some now carry this day in their hearts as a day of remembrance of fallen soldiers, family members, and friends. And others feel like this is what happens when you continue to stick your nose in other countries business by policing them and giving ultimatums to a country that does not belong to us.
