Hello New York, I hope you feel better. The world is with you.

I think you would probably remember exactly where and what you were doing the moment that horrible news came on September 11, 2001. Personally I was having my economics class back in ACJC. Instead of discussing inflation and plotting price-quantity graphs, murmurs regarding the attacks were circulating around the class. At that point in time no one had fully grasped the gravity of the situation yet. But from then on the world as we know it had been fractured, the New York city skyline changed forever.

For those people who were trapped in the towers hit by the planes, I cannot even begin to fathom the despair they felt. To feel so hopeless that their only hope was to leap 80 floors to their deaths. To the people who are still struggling to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones, please know that the world is with you! For those terrorists, did they seriously think that killing thousands of innocent people would bring them to heaven?

How about you? What were you doing on 9/11?
