We Remember 9/11
Tomorrow marks the 11th Anniversary of 9/11. We will comemorate the moments of that day beginning with when American Airline’s Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
I was watching the news and reporting live on the air on KODM when the second plane, United flight 175 crashed into the South Tower. I remember saying, “This was no accident!”, and I spent the rest of the day reporting every bit of information I could scrounge up. The internet was just beginning to take hold in our lives and the major media outlets didn’t have the web resources they have today, so the news was coming painfully slow.
11 years later, We can’t be blamed for feeling conflicted. We remember coming together as a nation to fight a common enemy, but now 11 years later we feel more divided than ever.
But when tomorrow comes, let us lay all that aside and remember the lives that lost in that initial attack.
