Question: What were you doing on Sep 11th 2001?
I was working. I remember that at that time Internet was not so accessible and only one person in the office had it. When she told us about what had happened in Manhattan, I first thought it was an accident. But, a few seconds after, when the second plane crashed into the other tower of WTC, everybody realized US was being attacked. I remember that the Brazilian TV did a good coverage of the attacks at that time.
Some years later I watched the movie "World Trade Center" (with Nicholas Cage) and the documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, and found them very moving, especially because I watched them sitting beside a firefighter.
Then I visited the Ground Zero in 2010. And, although I had some mixed feelings - I got a bit indignant at the market thing they created around there, and about the new tower being built at full steam - I also felt very sorry for the people who died, for the ones who gave their lives trying to save others, and for the victim's relatives who still go there every day to pray and leave some flowers.
Now it is your turn.
