On September Eleventh Two Thousand One the twin Towers collapsed. I was in school. The principal at got on the intercom and instructed the teachers to turn the televisions to channel Five. It was a massive destruction. Terrorists were hijacking our planes and crashing into the towers killing over three thousand innocent lives.
It caused so many others pain. Others were worried. People were no lingering safe in America. Everyone everywhere was rushing to take children out of school. While teachers were trying to keep them calm. Emotions were at a rage and uncontrollable.
This was history in the making. Others including myself, thought that we would never live through a time of history, and then are able to talk about it. This tragic event is now published in every history books through out the U.S. Living through a period such as this has an effect on everyone. It makes people think of what they have, and instills that maybe what their doing is wrong. It has the ability to change people’s lives for the better.
You don’t really know or understand why or how good you have things in life. Living through a tragic and distrought event like this gives you a different perspective on life and how you live it. Watching others lose loved ones makes you realize how much you love those who are around you. It makes you appreciate what you have and whom you have.
I chose September Eleventh because it brought new meaning to my life. As I hope it did yours. Know one including myself realizes how well they have it until something happens to those around them. It is as if God is giving us a warning or reminding us what we have. September Eleventh Two Thousand One is truly a memorable day in my life.
