Well of course you do...but it still grabs your attention. A couple of summers ago a friend and I took a road trip to the East Coast of the U.S. Amongst a lot of cities on the way we spent most of our time in NYC. We visited the twin towers and took a ride to the top. It was like being on top of the world. If you got any higher, all you could see was horizon... seriously. When I woke up on Tuesday, September 11th I lit up a smoke started getting ready for my Windows class. I turned on the tv and I notice on the three news channels that one of the towers is emitting smoke out. My first thought was, "holy shit, the World Trade Center's on fire." Then Katie Couric on the Today Show says that a passenger plane has hit the tower. At first I thought it could have been an accident. Then a couple seconds later on live tv I see the second plane hit the second tower. Any thoughts of this being a accident had vanished from my mind. Even while the towers were flaming there was hope in my mind that the firefighters could put out the blaze. It never even crossed my mind that the two collosal structures would plummet to the ground. When I got to school, the people there had no clue about what was happening. Each person I told about it thought I was bullshitting them. A couple of days ago was the six month anniversary of the attack on the twin towers. To top it off, the two terrorist pilots, which are dead, just recieved their student visas. It's hard to believe I was there so recently. I'm lucky to have had the oppurtunity to visit the WTC, twice...but if/when I have kids...they will never know what it was like...nor will anyone else ever again. It frightens me to think that most of the people I seen that day are probably dead. I don't have a scanner or else I would scan some photographs of my trip. Instead, here's bottle from my collection that I'll share with you. Anyone still effected by that tragic day in our lives...this Bud's for you.
