A Day to Never be Forgotten

 

 

Nine days before the attacks, I saw one of the most breathtaking sights I had ever seen. As my friend put in her cd player, Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind.” I saw this majestic sight .  The modern majesty and the tranquility of this metropolitan city that I had seen in movies and television was in front of me.

  On the morning of Sept 11, at 8:46 am EST a plane coming in from Boston crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.  Soon after wards, three other planes crashed as well. One in Pennsylvania, one into the Pentagon, and another attack was made on the South Tower in New York. Similar threats had been made on other several buildings in the US. Here in Chicago, the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Building had been targeted as well. This was a day that changed our lives forever.

Today we remember the heroes of that day. We remember those who went to work that morning and never came home. We remember people who kissed their loved ones good bye forever.  And we remember those who perished trying to save lives.

Lest we forget 9/ 11/ 2001
