I came from School. Met my Mom and baby Sister at Grandparents home. When I arrived Granpa was as usual watching TV. I saw like 5 min before my mom and Sister departed to buy me new shoes. I saw this great action movie. And thought hopefully it's come soon.

As we where in Footlocker, me trying some Jordan's, the TVs all around this new action movie. That's when the second fight hit the second tower. Not until later in the evening, when every TV station was showing rapidly the same pictures. That's when it dawn that indeed the Towers are gone and a lot of dead too. 

 

Sooo...its not a movie?

...in the aftermath, I attended an interfaith prayer meeting that left me in awe. And I know now that though there might be a few incidents no one is proud of, we have come a long way in the fight against bigotry.
