Some of us, like myself were a little too young to process what happened that day, but the one thing is for sure, we'll never forget.
"today we've had a national tragedy.
Two airplanes have crashed into the world trade center in an apparent attack on our country.... it was shock and horror for everyone.
It's just something at my age at the time.
None of us had experience anything like that at the time.
Thats whats what surprised me is how easily it would seem to collapse.
You know i remember world war two, i remember pearl harbor, i remember kennedy.
Its trammatic with things that happen in our lives.
On 9/12 america came together like never before.
