Ten years ago today I woke and turned the TV on. The today show out of NYC was on a breaking new story of a plane crashing in to the World Trade Center north tower.. The pictures were frightening. Commentators were mulling over how this could have happened. Several minutes later their live picture showed a second plane crashing into the other WTC Tower. My thoughts said, "we are under attack".
Then a report of an "explosion" at the Pentagon. Then a plane missing over Pennsylvania. I had this day off work so I watched in horror as the truth behind all these events unfolded.
A reporter remarked that smoke had obscured the view of one tower. He didn't know at the time WTC2, the south tower, had collapsed. United flight 93 was reported down in PA. The Pentagon explosion was revealed to be yet another plane crashing.
Nineteen terrorists from theIslamist
four passenger jets killing 2977 people on the ground and on the four aircraft.
It does not seem ten years have passed.
