Its hard sometimes getting up for class-expecially when fall is coming and the wind gets a bit more brisk on the back of your neck. I woke up late that morning and turned on the tv-knowing that I was going to be late to my first class. I turned on Mtv and saw the most bizarre music video. It looked so real. My sister called and was crying, “we’re being attacked”! I sat in my closet-like dorm room…speechless. It wasn’t a music video-but a glimpse of the realities of the world. That no, we are not always safe from the culture shock of other nations, of religon, of people. My roomate was a pilot, and her presence at the airport was unknown. Nothing was known…No one understood. All we knew is what we saw.
