I remember the day. I remember it very well. Though I’m not positive, this may be the event for our generation that we compare to Kennedy’s assassination of the previous generation.
Do you remember where you were? What you were doing? I was in the Pit in Haggerty/Olin Engineering Building studying with J.P. and D.L. when B.H. came in and said that a plane had crashed into the first tower. At the time, we thought it may have been an accident. But then we turned on the news and saw the second plane and realized that this was how it was meant to be.
I’m not going to go on about the bad anymore. We can move forward and realize that the world isn’t as dangerous as some seem to think it is. Everyday there are so many more good things that happen than bad. We have been conditioned to only hear the bad. We hear about it when someone is robbed. We don’t hear about the man who drops his wallet on the street and a complete stranger picks it up and runs after him to make sure he gets it back.
I personally think that the world would be better off noticing the good things and not losing faith in the good.
