3 days after my 21st birthday I went to my 8am class as normal (Lincoln University, PA). Someone had mentioned that a plane hit one of the WTC buildings in NY but it sounded like a small commuter plane from the way they described it. At this point no one had seen the videos but we dismissed it as no big deal.
When I returned to my form (LLC), everyone had CNN on and was watching in awe as we witnessed an endless loop of disbelief. I’ll never forget @justgregpoet running down the hall and as he passed by me saying “The chickens have come home to roost!” That was the day that our lives as Americans were forever changed.
New laws restricting freedoms, expanded definitions of terrorism, airports transformed into undesirable places due to insane security measure two wars and so much more. I’ll never forget…
