September 11th

Extracts from this document...


September 11th, 2001 Today, more than 5 years later, it is still gruesome for me to reflect back on what happened that particular day. It was the day my life as well as that of many others came crashing down. September 11th is without doubt one of the most tragic events that has ever occurred in the history of men. A lot of people suffered a great loss. So, it goes without saying that it was a day full of fear, outrage and horror. Words are almost not enough to describe this horrific day; there is no way you can put the feelings, images and thoughts of that day onto a piece of paper. Nevertheless, I will do my best and share my story from the day we all bear in mind. I remember the morning rather well. It was an ordinary Tuesday in the store. My colleague and I had just had breakfast together. ...read more.


My first thought was that an accident had happened. A deliberate act of terrorism did not occur to me. When I ran down again, my colleague was crying her eyes out. She had just heard about the dreadful news of the terror attack! I was in shocked to the core. We ran outside in panic and saw the horror intensifying in New York City. That moment has burned itself in my memory. I could not believe that something so horrible was unfolding right in front of my very eyes. We just stood there as the towers burned down and people ran for their lives. Not being able to do anything to help them was really frustrating. In the meantime the police and fire fighting service had arrived. They tried to evacuate as many as possible from the two office buildings. There were some ambulances around, and one of them took away the lady in the store. ...read more.


I will never forget the fright and urgency in her voice. She had been calling me on my cell phone every minute, since she heard about the attack. You could imagine how relieved she was to hear my voice. Still after a few hours I was in a state of disbelief; it was simply indescribable. The whole situation caused me to feel numb - and nothing else. My colleague was hospitalized with what seemed to be a lung disease, but I am grateful that it was not serious. Thank God, I did not lose any family members or friends that catastrophic day, but unfortunately I lost all security, and I think many others did too. I can not fathom the sorrow of the many that lost loved ones that day, so unpredictably and so violent. I doubt that I never will. Everyday our fellow citizens who lost their lives during this attack and their families are in my thoughts and prayers. I know that I will never forget the fateful day of September 11th, 2001. ?? ?? ?? ?? Hanieh Meteran 1.z English assignment d. 12.12.2006 Greve Gymnasium 1 ...read more.
