10 years After 9/11

This was the front page of The Star ten years ago, the day after 9/11.

The night before, my sister and I had just spent the most unbelievably surreal night in front of the TV ever, watching the events unfold live as they happened in New York. I remember thinking, "What the fuck is happening? Why is this happening? Is this REALLY happening?"

It's been ten years since the World Trade Centers crashed down, and the world has been a really different place altogether. War, terrorism, and crazy airport security. It doesn't matter what your opinions of 9/11 and what happened after that. Let's just remember what happened on that day, during those few hours, when the world stood still and watched as the U.S. came under attack.
