Drunk Sober High
This afternoon, September 11th, Honor Guard police hang an American Flag from two fire engines outside the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center on Penn State's campus to honor those lost on 9/11.
This summer not only was I fortunate to obtain an internship in New York City, I was lucky enough to have two great friends house me for the summer. One of them, Alex Ortega, lived two blocks from Ground Zero. In light on the 10-year anniversary on 9/11, here is his story.
Usually, anniversaries are something to celebrate. Unfortunately, during this time of year we will be forever be solemn, flooded in the memories of what we shouldn’t have to remember.
Could you imagine 19 people discombobulating an entire nation, exploiting our cities by bringing horror and fear to what should have been a “normal” day?
It only took a couple of minutes and four airplanes to scar millions for life.
Images that are permanently embedded in our brains due to 19 extremists who severed families and keep others hopelessly wondering why. These same images could never be destroyed, because on September 11th of every year, television networks document actual footage, reminding everyone of the day that brought hell to New York City, Washington D.C., Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and the entire country.
