September 11, 2001
On Tuesday September 11, 2001 at the unthinkable happened in America. The
two World Trade Centers in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C
were hit by airplanes that were hijacked by terrorists. This terrible tragedy killing nearly 2,749 people and its youngest passenger Christine Hanson who was 2 years old on her first trip to Disneyland had a deep impact on the whole nation. American citizens were left at fear, and full of revenge to the people who had committed such an awful thing.
At 8:46 am flight 11 crashes into the world trade center on the north tower at speeds of 500 mph between floors 94 and 98, the aircraft enters the tower mostly intact,people at this point are in shock and are concerned if the plane crash was a planned terrorist attack or if ...view middle of the document...
When the tower collapses an overwhelming of gray white clouds rushed through the streets. Afterwards at 10:28 am the north tower of the world trade center collapses, no one above the impact zone in the north tower survives. The north tower of the World Trade Center stood for about 102 minutes and 5 seconds after their plane impact. When the towers collapsed they fell half of a mile to earth, and reached a speed of 120 miles per hour.
I strongly agree that when people go through a tragedy, they happen to hold on to
memories and feelings. om into his history class when he walked in, he recalls seeing his teacher and mosI was able to interview my 25 year old cousin on the 9/11
tragedy. The first question I asked him, was where he was on september 11 2001. My cousin clearly remembered, and he responded telling me that he remembered coming back from using the restroom all of his classmates being dumbfounded, and all of the students watching the television, that her teacher had turned on so that her students could witness the tragedy through news. He clearly remembers watching the second aircraft colliding into the tower. Junior Aguas was concerned that another terrorist attack would occur locally in the Bay Area putting his loved ones at risk. At the same time he really wasn't concerned about the terrorist attack that had occurred. Junior said that he felt and still feels sorry for the people who lost their loved ones, on September 11 2001. He also believes that it was a conspiracy.
I believe that feelings and memories of a tragedy you have overcomed will always be remembered as a point in someones life. My sincere respect goes out to the families who had friends and families who had to overcome the passing of their loved ones on the tragic day on September 11, 2001
