Every year on this day, we are destined to remember some of the biggest bullies in the world on 9/11. Eleven years ago today, those bullies chose to hurt more innocent lives that did not deserve what they received. Much like the lone victim of bullies, they did not ask nor did they want someone to attack them. It was a sad day that many of us will never forget. I, myself, experienced the bullying firsthand. My office shook when the Pentagon was hit only a few miles away.
I went onto the roof of my building to see what was formerly a beautiful sun-filled sky turn dark with the smoke from the Pentagon, while on TV, the World Trade Centers were collapsing. I wanted to run and hide, like I did when I was bullied during my younger years, but there was nowhere to go. I knew it was the end of innocence for the United States. All because someone else wanted to hurt us. It is a bullying story, unfortunately and today I remember the real victims and also the heroes of 9-11.
