Even at the age that I was, I was still a little clueless as to what was going on. I was in class and we were working on some kind of assignment independently because the teacher was not around to teach. I remember my teacher and others came rushing into the classroom and they turned on the little puny cheap monitor we had. We were wondering why they were freaking and I remember my teaching saying
"Hush! This may not be important to you, but it is to us!"
I got home and realized that my favorite shows were unsuccessfully taped for a few days becuase all through the hours, the world trade center took over with their news coverage. I could remember being so frustrated, where all I saw was just this big tower with smoke coming out of it on tv all day. When I got to be just a little older, I then realized that terrorism was very real. It can happen at anytime, anyplace to anyone. It even left me a little ignorant for a while until I finally grew up.
It baffles that there are people in this whole who invade countries and just randomly kill people they know nothing about. I'm not saying America is a saint, but we definitely have higher standards of living and respect for human life. If someone from a certain part of the worlds, thinks of us as unworthy, why not go about your business and stay away?
