9/11 terrorist attacks shocked the world and changed the United States forever.
2001 was the year when my parents got married (October). My father was working in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and my mom was in India, New Delhi. When this painful incident happened, my mom was in a shopping mall. She immediately rushed to home, because she was scared. There was a live telecast on TV of this disaster. My mom watched the whole incident with her family. Nobody was moving from the television. As per my mom, this still horrifies her. My mom heard about the jetliners crashing into the World Trade Center. By the time she reached home the other had struck the other tower. Children were crying for their parents, brothers and sisters.
My mother’s aunty lives in California. She was going to San Diego and had already boarded the plane. But she was asked to leave the plane and all passengers were off boarded. There was a tight security and all the flights in the U.S.A were canceled. My maternal grandfather’s family lives in the US (In different cities). He was busy calling everyone but there were no connections available at that time. Nobody had any meals on that day. Every body was praying.
