Reflections on 9/11
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.
When I first heard that a plane had hit the WTC, I thought it was an accident. I will never forget standing in the cafeteria of my high school, watching the live news coverage of the situation andseeing the second plane hit the other tower. At that moment I realized the planes crashes were not accidents.
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.
It was the display of the writing in the dust, especially the one that read, "Come Steve & Tommy."
