Making history

To the Editor:

History was in the making on Tuesday. Never has such a tragedy of this type occurred in all the world.

Such thought and planning has probably never been put into a terrorist attack. Never could we dream of an attack of this size. What an incredible moment to be alive.

Do you remember first hearing about the Oklahoma City bombing? What about where you were that late August night when Princess Diana died? And, of course, Columbine, a tragedy that strikes the hearts of all youths. My parents told me where they were during such historic moments as Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon. My grandparents have shared details of their experiences during World War Two.

True, yesterday's news does not compare to the horror of a world war or the Holocaust. However, we will be telling our children and our grandchildren about Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
