flickr friday [9/11]
another year has passed since new york city and the rest of the world experienced the horror of terror on american soil. i remember like it was yesterday … still living in germany and returning home after school as my brother told me that an airplane just hit the world trade center in new york city. i sat in front on the tv and froze just few months prior i was standing right in front of the towers looking up in the sky amazed how sturdy and tall the twin towers seemed to be. nobody had a clue that the iron.twins would be no more only few months later … i could only imagine the chaos happening in the city that never sleeps.
the following year i moved to new york city and made it my home. home sweet home with a little bit of bitter.sweetness on days like 9/11. we remember those taken from us by the sheer terror that occurred on that day and celebrate those that made it and still fighting the aftermath that was left behind. a new day for the families that lost loved ones and all mankind to make sure that this madness never happens again!
[nīn’ĭ-lěv’ən] September 11, 2001, the date on which two hijacked airliners were flown into the World Trade Center in New York City and another into the Pentagon. A fourth hijacked airliner crashed in open land in Pennsylvania.
