Lets take a few moments to just pay our respects to lives lost when they didn't have to be

I have been thinking about writing about this for a long time and I am doing it now. Tomorrow is the day when all our beliefs were shaken in human kind. Atleast mine were. I was getting ready to go to school for my early morning class and my friend T called me to let me know that I should not go to school because I took the bus from downtown to my school and there could be a tense situation. I could not understand why but she told me turn on the tv and I can never ever forget the day what I saw on it. I was looking at a scene that was beyond belief and I was just going into this zone where I thought this cannot be happening , yes it was when the second plane hit the tower I was just getting to the point where I was thinking this is happening. Then the days that followed brought more and more fear and hopelessness. I really could not understand if the world that we lived in was so unpredictable. All those statements that people make about how anything can happen anytime came to be so very true. So I feel like we all need to take a few moments which is not much to ask, to remember those that lost their lives and those who survived but lost a part of their soul on this day. All of us need to think together to make this world a better place even though its by doing a really small deed of trusting someone and believing that good exists and it will beat the bad every single time. It shook my trust in people and filled me with a lot of anger and helplessness but slowly I am starting to believe again and so will all those who suffered. To all those who were left behind there might be a long long time before they start believing again in the goodness of human nature, until then we just have to do our best to make our world a better place.
