I can't believe it'* been 4 years.



I was just starting my second week of high school, EVER - grade 9. The magnitude of the event didn't sink in until later after school. I was in a daze for a little while after that.

The skies above Toronto (I live under a flight path from Pearson Int'l Airport) were eerily silent for several days as all flight traffic was stopped. Eyes glued to CNN.

And it'* now that I start my second week of college, EVER. 9/11/2001 feels like yesterday. I'll never forget it.

All I have to say about 911 is I think its a shame people only appreciate things when disaster strikes

For 3 days just about everyone had american flags on their cars, for 3 days peopel seem to be polite.

3 days later people took down their American flags in favor of Lakers flags and that was that.

I guess people will be cool and appreciative again when something else gets destroyed.
