In Memory of 9/11

In memory of all the lives that were lost tragically on September 11, 2001.

The moment 'terror' took on a new meaning. The moment we were sure the world would never be the same. The moment we all shed a tear. The moment we believed humans were capable of true evil. The moment we all banned together. The moment we will never forget.

On September 11, 2001 I was a freshman in university. My next door neighbor (in dorms) woke me up to watch CNN Live. Together we cried as the second plane hit the second World Trade Centre. We felt horrified and helpless as we watched both buildings tumble to the ground. It was difficult to believe this terrible act was happening live on television. Classes at university were cancelled.
Today is a day for reflecting.

  1. I was living in Halifax, Nova Scotia at the time. I remember so many commercial aircrafts enroute to the states were diverted to Halifax. That day was so surreal. I'm sure everyone will forever remember what they were doing on that day.
