We must never forget! that is pretty much how I feel. Beyond politics and anything else we must never forget.
Well this is my first year blogging so I think I will recount where I was that day and how I found out.
I was just starting to work like a normal morning at work. Getting done reading my e-mail my cube neighbor Johnathan came up and said this. A plane just crashed into one of the WTC towers in New York. I said no way. At this moment I am thinking just a plane crash.
We had a pretty nice lunchroom at the company that I was working at, we had 2 big TV’s on either end. I went over to watch the news and what was happening when all of a sudden I see the second plane hit. I immediatly knew this was not just an accident.
The rest of the morning I spend going back from the TV to trying to start working again with little luck. I got to see the towers collapsing and that was even more debastating to me. All of those lifes lost.
September 11 did not change me, but brought back memories I thought were of my past. Growing up in Colombia it was something normal to hear of bombs sploding or assasinations. They used to make me feel very vulnerable. I thought that living in the US, that was a thing of the past. September 11 broght that fear back in my life, that sense of vulnerability. That’s why we must never forget.
