QofTheD - September 13th, 2010
Can't gaurantee I'll do this EVERY day! Probably won't but hey once in a while I like to do my Question of the Days! : )
Over the past 10 years if you could identify one defining moment what would that be?
That's easy - September 11th, 2001!
I don't care who you are or where you were on that day - it's a day we will NEVER forget! I know I was a freshman in high school on that day and it's like it was the day the world stood still. We didn't do anything at school except watch tv. Even on our lunch break, I remember going into Mr. Clagues choir room and listening to the radio. It really was the day the world stood still. It united people. It's sad it takes such a tragedy to do that - but it really did unite this country for a long time.
I know for me personally it made me want to get into politics. I could have cared less about anything political until September 11th. I will never forget Ms. Tierney trying to explain to our class why this happened, who they suspected and the history behind it. I just sat there and said why? It made me want to get into politics. I know we were attacked for more religious reasoning's than political - but politics and religion as much as people hate to admit it really do go hand in hand. They mesh, they blur between the lines ...
September 11th, 2001 - a day my generation and many more will never forget.
