10 Years Later We Remember The Victims, Heroes and The World Affected by 9-11!

We Remember The Victims, Heroes and The World Affected By 9-11.

This post was previously written to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the views and sentiments expressed still hold true today.

I remember exactly where I was when I heard about the twin tower attacks, I remember trembling in fear when the F-16 military jets flew over. I remember Long Island going into lock down because they assumed whatever terrorists were left would try to escape out of NYC that way. I remember the fear in my classmates faces when we heard about the attack on the Pentagon. The panic because cellphones were useless and no one knew where the President was or when he would address the nation...


Most of all I remember the faces and tears of my classmates who lost family members who worked in the World Trade Center Twin Towers. And a few days later when I made my way into Manhattan, I remember the smell of death in the air and the National Guards who stood alert with guns outside NY Penn Station. The sight of them was supposed to reassure us of our safety but instead it scared me. I remember thinking so this must be what it's like to live in a war zone and hoping that I would never experience anything like this again. 
 

Whatever 9-11 conspiracy or lack thereof theories you believe,  the fact remains that innocent people died that day in a gruesome way and all our lives were affected directly or indirectly by it. Today as we commemorate those who lost their lives, their families, the heroic Fire Fighters, Police Men and other Emergency Response Crews. Let us also remember the people around the world who continue to experience acts of violence and war everyday. And let us all do what we can to create a better and more peaceful world for future generations.

  7. Great article, I felt every moment with you, must have been terrifying. I can only imagine how how the people who were in the WTC feel today, they must be traumatized. God bless them all.
