The Day That Changed The Rest of Our Lives

September 11, 2001. Every year on this day I am taken back to that dreadful morning just like it was yesterday. This is a day none of us will ever forget. A day that changed the rest of our lives, and the world forever.

That morning I was just getting out of the shower, I had class so it was just the start of another normal day for me...that is until I stepped out of the bathroom and heard the commotion on CNN. I sat down on my couch wrapped in a towel, wet hair and all and just starred at the TV in disbelief. I could not believe my eyes. I was frozen. I wanted to believe it was a accident. Then the second plane hit. And then, right then we all knew it was no accident. When the towers fell I cried uncontrollably for all of those on the planes, in the buildings, and for the rescuers risking there lives to save those trapped in the buildings who had a chance to make it out. I cried for the families that had loved ones there that day. I cried for the world that my children would now grow up in because of the events that day.

Every year on this anniversary I light a candle and say a prayer for those we lost, their families, and for those still fighting in "the war against terror" right now. I will never forget.
