September 11th, 2001.

Albeit this post is a few days behind, I thought it was necessary. September 11th didn’t make the same impression to me as it did to those at ground zero. I only saw the attack on TV and it felt as real as Hollywood magic. It was hard to imagine it happening to real people and after ten years I was even more desensitized to the tragedy. Until yesterday, I only remembered the visual of plane crashes and the falling buildings. Do you remember how people jumped from the second building after the first building fell? Knowing that the building had been hit, people in the second tower rather plummet to their deaths instead of suffering the same fate as those crushed and killed from the collapse of the first building. Remember the reality and the horror of September 11th.
