NINE-ONE-ONE

September 27, 2016

September Eleventh, 9/11, also 9-1-1. On September 11, 2001, the United States was definitely in aunknown state of emergency. First and foremost, I want to express my profound thanks, gratitude, and admiration to the men and women who serve this country in “The War on Terror,” and also those brave civilians who take action when their fellow American needs them—that is selfless and more than commendable.

I recently watched a documentary about the 9/11 terror attacks called “102 Minutes America Will Never Forget.” It was no less shocking, and no less frightening than it was 15 years ago when I watched the South Tower collapse and crumble to the ground, burying, and killing people.911

I was in the tenth grade, and it was the fourth day of school. Everyone sat transfixed, staring at the television and barely comprehending what they saw.

September 11, 2001 was a terrible day for me, personally. I got “jumped” and beat up by a bunch of “Crips” and was expelled for threatening to come back and shoot them. I’ll always remember 9/11/01 for more than one reason. I feel so much anger about that day, but instead of focusing on that I try to remember and practice “Strength and Unity.”
