I still remember the tragic events that awaken me on sept 11th 2001. I was supposed sleep in late due to closing at mcdonalds in belton, south ,arolina. I was woken by my sister because of the first plane that hit the north tower in new york. I was disoriented due to the rude awakening, i forced my self up to watch the fox 21 news. I made myself a cup of coffee to wake up. I walked over to the tv and noticed the wtc north tower was smokin. At first i thought was an accident. Yes i was a sleep when flight 11 crashed. But all of that was about to change when i saw the flight 175 crashed. I was just stunned. Speechless. Oh my god. This cant be happening. Is this a terrorist attack. For moment i thought it was daja vu because i watch the movie the siege with denzel washington a few days before and that movie had gotten me scared because i didnt know if something like really happen in real life. And it did in its own way. To this day i think about that moment and it scares me that theres people out there that would plot terrorist attacks like that.
