I was watching Live with Regis and Kelly at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, when they showed the first tower on fire. I went downstairs thinking it was nothing important. Later, I heard my mom say “oh, no!” The second plane hit the other tower.
I went back upstairs and watched as they showed the aftermath of the plane hitting the Pentagon, the collapse of the towers and the remains of the final plane in Pennsylvania.
Looking back, not much as changed in American’s attitudes towards Middle Easterners and vice versa. We should remember those who died in the terrorist attacks and not blame the government for what happened or exploit it for the purpose of one’s beliefs and opinions.
