Reflections on 9/11: The Day That Changed Us All

September 11, 2011  |  

It started off as any other Tuesday did. I was a freshman at SUNY Old Westbury in Old Westbury, Long Island. I woke up late for my 8:40 Freshman English class and while I hadn’t finished last night’s reading, I was heavily anticipating Jay-Z’s Blueprint album that I was going to pick up after class. I left the dorm at 8:45 and strolled into class late, took my seat and spent the next hour bored out of my mind with the lecture of the day. I had no idea that if I had stayed in my room one minute later with the news on that I’d see images of a plane flying into the North Tower creating mayhem in New York City.
