The Crazy Life of Troy, the Drama King!
I remember waking up and getting ready for school as
normal. I walked into the living room and my father was
glued to the TV. He was watching CNN and they had a report
of a plane crashing into one of the Twin Towers. We didn't
really think anything of it and neither did the news team.
Planes crash into there all the time, we all thought it was
just a harmless accident. I stayed in the living room for a
little while and the next thing I know another plane hits
the other tower. I will NEVER forget that feeling of dread
and panic that passed over me. This was NO accident, this
was an attack on America! I was scared, I was worried, I
was sad...were there people in that plane? Was it just one
person? What is going on! My parents were glued to the
screen, but unfortunately they had to leave to visit my
Yeah, to top this day off, my Grandmother was dying in the
Anywayz, I stayed home and watched TV some more. The next
thing I know the Pentagon has been attacked. I call my
parents with tears in my eyes and tell them what is going
on! I'm literally scared that everyone around me is going
to die. I'm worried what is going to happen. I felt like
this was straight out of a movie! I had to stop watching
and get ready for school or else I would be late.
I get in my car and turn on Howard Stern and he is in the
air. He breathed life into what was going on. It was the
first time he wasn't being a smart ass about everything. I
knew this day would change a lot of things to come. I knew
this day would go down in the history books. As I was
listening, they found out that the planes were indeed
hijacked and there was innocent people aboard the three
planes that crashed. God...what a loss...I couldn't imagine
being in one of those planes knowing I'm going to die...
I walked up the front entrace steps of Bellarmine
University and a student stops me. She asks me if I'm going
to class and I tell her yes and she tells me that all
classes have been cancelled because of what had happened.
Tears were running down her face...I sighed and nodded my
head. I didn't want to go back to that terror and dread I
felt. I wanted it all to dissapear.
I make my way home and as I'm fixing myself some lunch, I
watch the footage of the Twin Towers collapsing. This is
when I break down. I couldn't eat, I couldn't do anything.
I just stared at the TV and bawled my eyes out. THIS IS
REAL! THIS WAS HAPPENING! INNOCENT PEOPLE WERE DYING
BECAUSE OF TERRORISM! So many emotions were running through
It's been a year, yet the memories are still so clear in my
head. I will never forget that day as long as I live, but
I'm sorry, all this coverage on TV is just making me
depressed...I made a living Tile on Yahoo.com today and I
felt good. I'm gonna wear a T-Shirt today with an American
Flag on it. I have to do my part as a strong American. I
have to show loyalty to this awesome place. So much
coverage on the TV today. I wanted to turn it off, but for
some reason I'm compelled. They're having a cermony
downtown and it's pretty much on every local channel. I'm
listening to Sheryl Crow right now cause she cheers me up.
I am NOT going to let those events sadden me! I was sad for
almost a whole MONTH because of September the 11th and I
must survive for everyone's sake. I am going to put a smile
on my face and remember those that fell. I am going to hug
my mom today and tell her how much I love her because I
I WILL be happy today cause I'm gonna go see Swimfan with
Jeff! Woo hoo! All my other friends SUCK cause they don't
wanna go see it with me! They're too busy for anyone and
they wanna sit around and twiddle their thumbs! Jeff and I
talked till like 4 in the morning! It was great! He's a
really cool guy and I'm glad we're becoming friends.
I was reading the paper this morning and here's what my horoscope had
Just when you thought you knew what you wanted, it will change before
FREAKY! Isn't it ironic...don't ya think?!
P.S. Pol Pot(ASS) and I made up, I hope I see Samantha
today so I can relay a message.
P.S.S. WE ARE A STRONG NATION AND WE WILL NOT LET SOMETHING LIKE
TERRORISM BRING US DOWN! REST IN PEACE ALL THOSE THAT
RISKED THEIR LIVES FOR A GOOD CAUSE!
