Mayhem, Pandemonium in NYC; US under attack

12 September 2001 20:24

I was actually glued to the television set for over 5 hours just now. And it was in one sitting. Certainly a record for me in recent times. What I saw unravel before my own eyes on the telly could have been cooked up by some Hollywood movie producer. I actually had to check that my cable box wasn't really tuned in to some movie channel or anything 'cos the stuff that was showing could've been, except it wasn't. It was on live television. What was a significant part of the New York City skyline is no longer there. The twin towers of the World Trade Center got levelled when two apparently hijacked civillian aircraft crashed just minutes apart of each other. In Washington DC, another hijacked civillian plane crashed into the Pentagon, plunging the United States into full alert with all flights being grounded nationwide and US military on the highest alert. The White House and other federal and governmental offices were evacuated as well. It's the most well thought out, coordinated and sophisticated act of terrorism that has hit the US on their own soil in recent times. My God. I'm actually lost for words to describe the whole situation really. Nobody deserves to be on the receiving end of such brutal act and certainly no religion ever condone such things. My thoughts and prayers go out to those innocent lives perished in the moment of madness, mayhem and chaos.
