Most people remember where they were when Pearl Harbor was attack (I wasn't born yet), when Kennedy was killed (I was four) and now 9/11.
Where were you on 9/11?
I live in California and we're three hours behind NYC. I had gotten up to wake my daughter for school.
I turned on the TV and sat down staring at the burning twin towers and wondered what was going on. The news caster made the announcement. Five minutes later one of the building fell, and then my mom called.
Mom: "Are you seeing this?"
Mom: "Did you see the building fall?"
Mom: "Just wait the next one will too." I didn't question how she knew, but I realized she was right. If one fell the next one would too.
It wasn't long until the next one did.
I felt like I was in shock for the rest of the day.
Who hated us that much? Of course we did find out.
