we were celebrating our sister’s birthday on that day, we were having coffee after dinner. i overheard the news from the service staff, soon after that messages on the cell phones came in one after another about the collaspe and the crashing near the pentagon. It was only when we reached home and watched the news, we channel surfed all the news channels. seeing the two towers collasping over and over again on different channels hit me that i am living in such a sheltered country, i don’t know whether am i lucky or ignorant. i watched the news up till 6am in the morning. if this can happen, nothing is impossible. i hope i will be stronger and so will you. my heart goes out to all the families of 9-11 and to all Amercians.
