9.11/Ground Zero Memories

As you all know that today is 9.11.14. This day will always remain in our lives. The day the twin tower was destroyed and thousands of lives were gone. What a tragic moment in the US and rest of the world. I can not believe it has 13 years since then. It seems like it was just yester day.

13 years ago, I was a middle school student in Japan. I just started to learn English and barely knew anything about the US. Also I did not know about Twin Tower. One day I heard the news, I was shocked!! But, I was too young to truly understand anything. Then I came to the US, and see people honor 9.11 each year and I expressed my thoughts along with other people. However, I did not become truly affiliated with 9.11until I traveled to New York last summer.
I wish I could see the Twin Tower before the incident. Unfortunately, this will never happen.

Look all the names!! I felt deeply sorry for them. Even though I do not know any of them, I almost cried when I read their names. Before I visited Groundzero, I only knew about 3000 people had lost their lives, but after I look through the names, I can't help thinking "they all have loved one at home waiting for them, and how did their families will react after hearing their father/mother/daughter/son will never come home again so suddenly?"

3000 names =3000 stories.... Each story would have more tears than just 3000 number of dead ones. 
Saddest part of the event is that we cannot do anything to change the history. I really hope this day was never happened. Only thing we can do is to pray and hope this kind incidence will NEVER EVER happen again.
I understand that we are all busy with study and work, but please take a moment to pray and remember those people. I was super tired with all the homework; however, I still took time to write this entry. Thanks for everyone who read it!!
Bring the world a peace!!
