Time flies. I can’t believe it has been 10 years since 9/11. I remember it vividly like it was yesterday. I had just woken up before 6am Pacific time. I went online to check my email and noticed that Yahoo was crawling. It was painfully slow. Yahoo’s home page eventually showed up after a couple of minutes. And there it was the top story. I don’t remember exactly what it said, but something similar to “Plane crashes into the World Trace Center.”
I immediately turned the TV on. Moments later, I saw the second plane hit the second tower. I also saw both towers collapse. I reluctantly showed up at work at 1pm. I was angry, dazed, and confused. It was a day that forever changed our lives. We lost loved ones. We also lost a large part of our freedom that day. We do things a little differently now, when we fly, and when we cross our borders. That was 10 years ago.
We moved on. And we must, but we should always remember 9/11.
