Reflections on 9/11
didn't know where my family was. many of them worked in manhattan.
What scared me the most was seeing the first Tower being hit and then the second tower being hit it was surreal.
notices of missing people.
On September 11, I remember being afraid to turn on my kitchen faucet. I actually thought the water might be poisoned. I know that sounds crazy, but that day we all thought that the United States was completely under attack, by unknown forces, who wanted us all dead. Yet in the next few days, I was moved by how much support for the U.S came in from all around the world. Many people didn't wish us dead, but indeed thought the U.S. was a place of hopes and dreams, and good people. ARE we a place of hopes and dreams, and good people?
I think that 9/11 proved that a true hero is anyone who is willing to put others above their own fears. 9/11 also proved that crying wasn't a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength and love.
