Smoke and flame in Washington
To the Editor:
Originally born and raised in Washington D.C., the Sept. 11 attacks all seemed so surreal [to me] the moment word of them began to spread. My entire school was summoned to the gym for further instructions everything seemed so mechanical and lifeless.
I remember scanning around and witnessing such a strong bond being formed within our community. People reached out to each other. Glancing over Key Bridge in Washington D.C., which attaches D.C. to Virginia, I was stupified with terror as I watched fire rise from my city.
September 11 forced me to believe that America is finally aware and willing to put both feet forward once and for all.
