Birthday Cake And Twin Towers

By: @rockyraccoon

It's that time of year again...

For those of you who don't know on September 11th, 2001, welcome to history class.

Four passanger planes in America were hijacked by terrorists.

Usually when planes were hijacked before then, there was some sort of reward/demand type thing.

This time there wasn't.

The planes were used like you would use a missile.

At 8:46 A.M. the first plane hit one of the world trade center buildings in New York City.

These buildings were HUGE.

News teams arrived almost instantly to cover what was thought as an accident.

Then at 9:03 when another plane hit the second Twin Tower, they realized this was no accident.

Some people in the buildings even jumped out of the windows to try and evacuate.

Both of the towers ended up collapsing, killing those still in it and first responders.

Another plane was sent to hit the Pentagon.

It succeeded, but didn't cause as much damage.

A fourth plane was found crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

We believe that it was heading for the capital or the White House, but the passengers probably fought back.

We'll never know, since everyone on the four planes didn't survive.

2,996 people were killed, and more than 6,000 were injured.

If you want more information, look it up because I don't know everything.

Though there was something else on September 11th. (Though not the same year)

My birthday!

Yep... That was an awkward conversation to have.

"Mommy? Why is everything on the news so sad? And why are the flags only halfway up?"

"Well Casey..."

Should I celebrate? Should I not?

It's always so confusing, because you want to be happy, but because of the date you can't.

At least my friends can't forget the date.


As you grow older, you start to notice your birthday less and less.

Like it isn't as important or exciting.

I don't even have a birthday list that my parents have been asking for for the past month.

But at least I can now say I'm a year older!

See ya in a year! Oh shoot, you can only use that joke when it's New Years.

I guess see you in one more trip around the sun?

Oh nevermind
