What was going through your head that day, twelve years ago?
I was only six. We didn't have TV, so I didn't see any footage of the event... The only memory I have of 9/11 was going into my Grandma's office sometime later, and seeing a picture of the American eagle with a tear dripping from its eye: a tribute to the twin towers.
I didn't understand.
I don't know if I could have.
That was one of the greatest tragedies in American history, and one we need to keep fresh in our minds out of honor for those who died, who gave their lives, and who are still living with the trauma.
Also, as some know, Benghazi happened on this same day, exactly one year ago. Coincidence?
Horrific, tragic, and appalling.
