I remember that day as if it was just yesterday. I remember that my dad's phone call woke me up, what I felt when I watched TV, what my friends went through. oh and how this stupid guy in my class thought some Japanese were responsible for the attacks and gave me the dirtiest look you can imagine. I was like "what the heck. what kinda news do you watch? why do you think we need to attack America?" that was just plain rediculous.
I've been thinking about my friend and her family all day, all week. I would never fully understand what it is like to be in their shoes. I decided to write her and tell her how much they had been on my mind and hope she was doing alright getting through the day.
I couldn't believe how many hours TV stations spent on showing the video tapes or documentaries yesterday. I couldn't really watch them. cuz I was heartbroken all over again. it hurt so much, i felt like i couldn't breath... but that's nothing compare to those who lost their family or loved one. it is important that we all remember what happen, but is that necessary to show those videos over and over until you can't even avoid them? I couldn't help but wonder what families of victims would feel...
On a happier note, to me, September 11th is not only the tragic day. It is also my sister's birthday! as usual, i haven't found anything for her or my lovely niece, Aoi chan, yet. Aoi chan's birthday is on the 14th. they don't care when they will receive presents from me, so i'm gonna take my time :-)
Aoi chan is turning 1 year old. time flies by... really. i wish i could be with my family more.
911 is a perfect day to remember how important your family is, how fragile our lives are, how much we should cherrish each second of it, and many more things...
