My friend just sent me a picture of two Jenga towers he painted to look like the twin towers.

I was in one of my business classes and some people were chattering about something that happened right before they got into class. I think class ended early and everyone was in the break room/lounge area watching tv. Still unsure until we saw the second plane hit. Then we knew.

I couldnt wrap my head around it for quite some time. I think some classes were cancelled or became optional for the rest of the week. Most of the classes remaining were tied up with discussing the tragedy, almost like grief sessions.

Junior year of college.

Its kind of strange because 9/11 was also the beginning of the roughest period of my life. Shortly after that, a friend of mine hung himself, a month after that another acquaintance shot himself, then i went to italy to study abroad and my girlfriend at the time cheated on me with my friend (we were all in italy studying). I think a year later a kid i grew up with hung himself. Just crazy events that all kind of started around 9/11. Severe depression, change of schools, etc..etc..

Fucking Bin Laden.

Not to detract from your experience Strat, but I had a similar stretch of bad news around the same time. I think it's just that age -- lots of mental/emotional illnesses start rearing their heads in your 20s, and people are often away from home, trying to take care of themselves for the first time. I went through a similar run where it seemed like loved ones were dropping like flies.

I was in a supermarket in Holloway with my brother, our parents were in India with our other brother. Heard in a q that a plane had crashed, only realised when we got home that a 2nd had hit and that this was no accident. Our parents had a caravan in Wales at the time and we were thinking of fleeing there, not such a bad idea considering 7/7 but we thought better of it.

I get my 9/11 story confused with my Katrina story. In one, it was raining, I know that.

Irma has kind of stole the time from the usual anniversary stories. It's amazing to think it's been 16 years though.

My school did a moment of silence and then a tribute video made by the school's ROTC program this morning. No big deal, pretty standard fare until the video devolved into a diatribe of how "they" hate us for our freedom and because we're a beacon of democracy and liberty. I was floored. It was like it was like listening to the Bush administration in 2001/02 again. Five minutes of how we're strong and angry blah blah blah.

I try my best not to get on a soapbox and give my personal opinions. My facial expressions may have given me a way a bit but I had to even get that under control because the girl who narrated it was sitting in my class right then.

It's a long story.


I'm pretty sure that was my first big trip by myself.
