wow!!! 9/11/2001 ten years
9/11 2001 i was a senior in high school at Fontana High feelin like not a fuckin thing mattered in the world so i was about 2 hours late to school(first and second period). i was chillin getting ready for school cooking and watchin the newz. they was talkin about Micheal Jordan coming back to basketball and the Whitesox had won there game yesterday (WhiteSox always been my team so I watched the Highlights) it was like 9 oclock and the news comes on that a plane had hit a building. I was like damn thats crazy where they do that at? so i kinda tune in a lil closer still not really concerned just iquisitive and see its a New York world trade center building and im like wtf happened as the News reporter describes what is happening and his theory as to what might of happened or could have happened and the resolve measured that are beginning to take place, The second plane flew in soooo fast from the right and hits the same building and even as a careless teen My heart jumped and I couldnt believe what the fuck whats going on. u expect to see the craziest things on the news but i could not believe what I was watchin so early in the morning. I really lost all the nonchalant and arrogance that I was feeling at that moment and I felt more outside of myself as they began to report how many people were in this building and then the screams of reporters and by standers as people began to JUMP!!! that was soo terrifying to see that people jumping and falling and then the Collapse of the buildings was soo crazy to see and I couldnt believe what the fuck was going on in America! not iraq or pakistan or some third world In NEW YORK City AMerica!!
I watched it for another hour and a half before I went to school where We watched it all day. Ill never forget MR. Griffith made us Say the pledge of allegence in my 5th period and he said it so Fervent and heartfelt. looking back I feel bad I didnt say anything but I just watched him and my class. clueless kids not really grasping the whole of what happened because they were at school in class and hadnt watched what the fuck just happened to our country in our Country by TERRORIST. I felt I was the only one in the class that remotely understood and Identified with Mr. Griffith as made us do such a timely allegience. I felt bad I didnt say it but I watched him say it with all of himself and all of his great understanding and all of his sorrow for those people that were dying that morning.
I had images in my head that hadn’t full developed but were setting. and I imagined people BURNING, people smelling people burning, people seeing people burning, people crying and fighting for window space to breath gas filled, smoke filled air. and that shit blows the left side of my brain and my heart hurts thinking of those images and those peoples conversations and text messages to there families husbands and wives and even kids. This was such a terrible and tragic day and its really taken 10 years for it to set in with me what I seeen happen that day. and what it did to me and my country. and I feel terrible I didnt say a word in that pledge that day. I am an Black AMERICAN man and I feel my countries sorrow, pain, and reverence to that day in its full!! WE are still reliving that day in or minds and memories and WE WILL NEVER FORGET what we seen we felt we’ve been through and are going through. We are still healing but we are still ailing. and This is such a painful day and anniversarie to commemorate but I will never let it go unaddressed.
I wanna write forever on this day but here are some videos that have been up for 10 years but Tell me how u feel watching these same images as an adult. I was probably the only kid at my highschool to see this LIVE and actual and it really changed alot of myself in my demeanor and morale as a person. I lost alot of my selfish and gained alot of my selfless in this day when alot of GOOD and even Great AMERICAN PEOPLE lost their wonderful lives. I feel such deep sorrow in their memory and lose myself regard in there last minutes of fear and terror. NEVER FORGET sept. 11th 2001
