i turned 18 on 911. wow, what a great day to celebrate my legalization. [sarcasm].
i woke up around 7:50, and i didn’t go to school that day. I turned on the news, like i always do every morning, when at least an hour or so later, they showed footage of the first plane hitting the world trade center. i was BEYOND SHOCKED. i knew a friend of the family who worked nearby there.
i quickly told my parents to wake up, and yelled at them “wake up! wake up! we are under attack! terrorists hijacked a plane!”.
my parents thought i was joking, not until i dragged to the TV screen, and my dad started crying.
everythin else was chaos, that i barely remember. we lost a friend of the family, who could barely breathe from the smoke.
remember the fallen,
