Perhaps you'd feel a bit differently if you lived in New York City and if 9/11/2001 was your first day of college. I'm thankful that I was able to find my way home from the city during that day and I'm glad my dad got home from work in downtown nyc.

Something like this might happen again anywhere in the country and it shouldn't, especially in America. The domestic tranquility promised to us from the constitution was compromised on that day, let it not happen again nor lest we forget september 11th 2001. I am thankful I didn't loose anyone close to me that day but I do know people who did. I'm real sorry if none of this seems outstandingly out of the ordinary to you. You may argue that this is how the rest of the world feels about their situation. Well, I'm a US citizen therefore my interests remain in America.

Sorry if I sound a bit outspoken but this is how I feel and I must get this off my chest before I say something insanly stupid. One of the biggest tragedies in the United States happened on 9/11/2001. I'm not trying to be overly dramatic, I don't really have to try. I saw some firemen on the ferry today and it made me think.

I remember crying the first time I saw the footage of the building collapsing...I think it was one of the most horrifying things I've seen on the TV for so many reasons.

The first time I heard about it I heard it from a friend online. I thought they were joking for about ten minutes of conversation before they convinced me to turn on the tv. It was very surreal to turn it on and see the pentagon and the twin towers smoking away. Of course, it's hard for me to comprehend how people can be so selective about what is a "trajedy". An estimated 60,000,000 people starve every year(, but only 3,000 died on 9/11.

I don't wanna start anything but I think in terms of American lives which were taken out of anger.

And I think in human lives which were taken out of indifference.
