9/11/2001 I’ll always remember walking to school, hearing about it on the World Trade Center Attack on the P.A. System, and the teacher turning the news on. I didn’t really understand it then, I didn’t really know what’s up. I felt sad, because it was sad… But I never really connected to it emotionally Untill I went to Ground Zero a few years ago. Walking through what once this world hub. I felt intensely depressed and sad from the moment I got off the subway, I felt the atmosphere around me get very somber, very quickly! I remember walking through the museum… Reading every persons stories, seeing clothing that was burned, scraps of papers, people’s ID’s, people’s life’s up in the air on display just like that. Reading a good percentage of those papers, and looking at people’s ID cards, wow that made it very real. I remember wondering about these people, what is their life like now? I remember thinking, sure I’m sad… But really what about the innocent people that lost their Moms, dad’s, brothers, sisters, cousins, uncles, granddaughters, and grandsons? What about those people? I remember thinking wow, I’m so lucky to have been born an American, a culture of people so diverse, and so different, sure we have our own sets of bad stuff, but I remember being. Thankful, thankful that I’ve learned love and compassion, and strength, and have the freedom and opportunity to mold and shape my life the way I chose to. Life has been forever changed for America post 9/11 but it’s especially changed for the families directly affected! Even through all of this, our society continues to love, to grow, to attempt to become better people. It’s amazing to me, that there are societies in the world, that aim to terrorize, to harm, and negatively affect others. I’ll always remember the way I felt that day and the way I felt in 2011 im when I visited #WTC #Groundzero I’ve never felt more connected to being An American than in that moment.
Took me a total of 5 minutes to think about this, and then write it, screenshot it and share it! My burger that I’ve been craving all day, has yet to appear. #carlsjr
