I used to live in New York,  but  left New York before 9/11.  I love  New York, but I had an interest in seeing what the rest of the world had to offer.

When I lived in New York,  I  worked in the World Trade Center, on the 39th floor. The twin towers  were home to me. I shopped and ate  in its Concourse. I used the subway right underneath the World Trade Center.   On sunny days, I would sit outside the buildings and get some sun.

I remember during the summer, my niece, from California,  would come stay with me.  I showed her the New York I love. I remember one year,  she had a desire to go all the way to the top of the World Trade Center. So, because of my niece, we went to the top of the Twin Towers.   When we got  to the top, we could see New Jersey and some  of the boroughs. I also remember seeing that  George Willig  had etched his name and the date of the day he scaled the Tower.   When the twin towers  fell, that’s the first thing I thought of…George Willig and his legacy  are gone.    I remember seeing Willig climbing  the tower on television.   At one point the police arrived, told  him to get down or he would be arrested, but he kept climbing.  All New Yorkers were on Willig’s side.  We all wanted him to make it to the top.  And he did.  Police arrested  Willig on the roof  as soon as he finished his climb.   New Yorkers protested his arrest and  he was let go.

In case you don’t know who George Willig is:  Willig was the one who scaled the side of the World Trade Center on May 26,1977.

I haven’t been back to New York in a while  and haven’t seen Ground Zero.  I know if I go back to see it, I will cry.  If I’d stayed in New York, I might have been one of those in the twin tower’s tragedy.  I guess it was not my time to go.

When I lived in New York, one of my fears was that a plane would some day hit the Empire State building or the Twin Towers.

On September 11, 2001, I was home.  It was my day off from work.  I was watching “Good Morning America” and  the morning anchor, Charles Gibson, broke into the morning program and announced that one of the twin towers had been hit by a plane.  And then a few minutes later, he announced that the second twin tower had also  been hit by a plane.  My fear had finally come  true.   Then another announcement,  about 20 minutes later,  that a plane headed for the Pentagon had crashed into it. I began to think that something really weird was going on.  But what?

An hour after the three planes crashed, a plane headed for San Francisco, crashed in Pennsylvania.  Now I definitely knew something weird was happening.   This plane  crashed  because the staff  tried to divert the plane away from the White House.  There’s another theory that the government blew up the plane before it reached the White House and the President.  I don’t know what the truth is about this plane.  Did the plane crash because of  the heroic staff, or did the U.S. blow it up?  We’ll really never know the truth about 9/11.

Today is September 11, 2011.  It is the 10th anniversary of the terrible day in which almost 3,000 people were brutally murdered by some terrorists.  I don’t know  if anyone I knew died on that day.  I will find out when I visit New York and check the list of names on the memorial. I can easily find out who died, but  I don’t want to know until I visit the memorial.
