My favorite sight unusually destroyed
Date Submitted: 8/31/2016
I was at first shocked. When I got back from my errands during my job that morning. A co worker told me this tragedy. As I went on my next errand during my work day, I watched it on tv provided. I at first cannot believe that the towers were lost. I have been there before when I was 10 and 11 years old. It was during my school trip. I have been there twice. My favorite part of wtc was the rooftop observation deck on top of wtc 2 south tower. Good heck of a thing is that I was not there during the tragedy. I live about 150 miles north of NYC in upstate New York. When I got home from work, I watched the tv coverage all day and all night.
As I began to take a sip from my glass of water, I counted my blessings. Never take anything in this life for granted, not even something as simple and as pure as the water you drink. You never know when you won't have that luxury ever again.
