It was a Tuesday morning. I was eight years old when the reports came in that America had been attacked. Two planes had crashed into the World Trade Center (AKA the Twin Towers) and the Pentagon had also been struck. A fourth plane rumored to have been headed for the Capitol in DC had crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Everyone was terrified and no one knew what to expect. As children, we knew nothing other than school had been dismissed early and everyone was sad and worried. From our hometown in New Jersey, you could smell the smoke from the collapsing buildings across the bay. Nearly 3000 people lost their lives that dreaded day. Below is an interview with former President George W Bush on what exactly unfolded on 11 September 2001.
