New York City is noted for its large industries, Broadway and a terrorist attack. The impact of the planes striking the Twin Towers has consequences both national and international, short-term and long-term.
The events of that early Tuesday morning at the age of eight are unfocused pictures in my head passing through an old-fashioned movie projector.
Mom’s expression moved between worry and amusement as she ironed and watched the television news reports. This was not an ordinary day, for sure, however I could not accurately determine the reasons why for myself.
I went off to school. Everything at school seemed normal. The playground was crowded and full of laughter and games of tag, baseball, hopscotch, soccer and other pastimes. Our teachers kept us busy with our regular routine studies.
Mom’s smile was still missing when the school bell rang at the end of the day. A long, strong hug greeted me before she and I settled into the car to return to our house.
On the trip home Mom explained the events of the day—the attack on our country leaving me frustrated and angry.
Images from the morning newscasts replayed continuously on all channels particularly
the one of the airplane crashing into the buildings. Unforgettable images of screaming people, panicked faces, casualties, dust, broken glass and concrete, survivors running aimlessly moving away from the chaos are etched forever in my mind.
This incident brought people together. Many national and international rescue crews entered the ruins without regard for their own safety to bring victims out and to hospitals for treatment. Photographs posted in subway stations, on building walls, phone booths, lamp post standards of the dead and missing inundated the blocks around Ground Zero
for several days and weeks after the attack. Many vigils and memorials also grew up around the United States and in other world countries in the days and weeks that followed...
Theories abound as to why or who is responsible for the attacks on the Twin Towers.
Some believe that the United States government caused the disaster giving our military
an excuse to invade the Middle East and exploit oil reserves. Others blame Al Qaida, led by Osama Bin Laden who would provoke yet another clash between Muslims and non-Muslim peoples. Bin Laden carried out a number of similar provocative acts prior to the one in New York.
Families became closer. The nation mourned in shock. Prayers went up for the victims and their grieving families and friends. Will the events of that terrible day ever be forgotten? Our calendars state Tuesday September 11, 2001 (aka 9/11). (434 words)
