But thirteen marked the 13th year after the tragic event of September 11. And somewhere in downtown New York, people are in remembrance of the event. The event was still fresh in my mind.
On September 11, 2005 morning, a day that began like so many others, I was preparing myself to go to class. It was just about a month since I arrived in the States to further study in Industrial Engineering at Purdue University, Indiana. (You can read about My Graduation HERE)
It was an ordinary morning, listening to the radio while preparing myself. But that morning, the radio wasnt sound so pleasing. There were sounds of ambulance, screaming people and just chaos!
I heard the deejay was interviewing few people and i couldnt understand what it was all about. I turned off the radio and began walking to the University building. When i reached the PMU building, nearby the lobby area, i saw a crowd of students stood in front of a giant display and most of them looked very surprised.
Then it hit me! Two planes have crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City!!
It was such a tragic event where within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires affecting the nearby building, more than ten other buildings.
I still remembered how the experts mentioned about the high temperature degree of the airplane's fuel melted the building structured.
Notes : Tiba-tiba rindu plak kat Purdue U and during the studies. Tepek gambar satu kat sini :)
