When the events of september 11th had occurred, I was three years old. I heard a plane flying low from our Tribeca apartment, I turned to my father and asked if planes were supposed to do that. We turned on the news and saw that the first plane had hit. We ran down the stairs and came outside, I sat on his shoulders and watched as the second plane hit and exploded. I'm fourteen now, and remember this like it was yesterday.
