    Visiting The Site Vs Seeing It In Tv

    I live in the Southern Hemisphere. When the attacks happen I was just waking up. I was horrified as I watched it on TV and saddened. I recently visited the actual site (Sept 11 2012) and find it difficult to describe what I felt. It was hard to imagine the size of the buildings...
