One question that was asked more than any other question to me is..” What were you doing/ Where were you on the morning of 9-11..?”
I was sleeping on that Tuesday morning as I had a day off so I was enjoying my once a week late morning sleep. I woke up by a phone call from my mother who lives in Bangladesh. I said ..”Hello” in a sleepy tone..She asked me why I was sleeping rather than watching TV…since I was still sleepy I did not know what was the meaning of watching TV..I aske3d her,” Why should I watch TV Ma..? This is the only day I sleep a bit late..let me sleep.” She said,” Just turn on the TV..I just saw that there was an attack in World Trade Center..” I shook off my sleep and turned on the TV..I could not believe my eyes as what I was watching..my mother was kind of worried about me and she was happy that I was at home sleeping.
So when I first turned on the TV the TV news reporter was telling that there was an accident in the World Trade Center where a plane hit one of the tower and as the moments go by the information was coming to the TV Station and the two reporters were discussing what could have happened. All of a sudden they started to scream and said that there was another plane coming straight to the middle of the remaining tower. I was totally speechless and literally froze to see the plane hit and cut through the tower
That time it was clear that it was not just an accident, it was premeditated attack on our beloved country. The TV station already got few more information like the Pentagon crash and the doomed flight of Pennsylvania.
I was so shocked that I could not think straight. How could it be possible..what our Intelligence departments were doing..how could 19 foreigner could pull off the biggest hoist of the history of mankind..?
I called my wife who already at work. I told her to leave the job as soon as possible. And I kept watching TV news from all the channels.
I already knew that the world has changed forever.
