No matter what anyone thinks in regard to how it happened or who did it, 256 people in four planes were killed. 125 people at the Pentagon were killed. 2606 people at the World Trade Center were killed. 6000 people in all were injured. On September 11, 2001, four planes affected the lives of nearly everyone in civilized society in the entire world and radically changed the whole of the United States as we knew it. Just as I know nothing of the happenings of December 7, 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed, those graduating high school this year know nothing of the morning of September 11, 2001 and that’s the way most major media outlets would like to keep it ....or so it seems. In a land whereby a fictional game of war is at the very fingertips of those who like to play games on their computers, the non-fictional scenes of the twin towers being struck by planes and their eventual demise is too harsh, too mentally conflicting to be shown by our media any longer. The truth is, it happened. Life changed, I changed. We found that America was and is no longer safe from those who would wish to destroy us. On that morning, I felt rage, fear and sorrow all at the same time. ...I cried.
