The Daily Duvall

September 11, 2001

On September 11'th 2001, 4 planes were hijacked and crashed in to 4 of our nations land marks, The north and south towers of the world trade center in New York, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and a field in Pennsylvania. Flight 175 hit the South tower, flight 11 hit the north tower, flight 77 hit the pentagon, and flight 193 landed in a field in Pennsylvania. Thousands of innocent lives were lost on this day and our nation lost it's since of security. But, this also brought our country closer together.


The events of 9/11 not only affected New York, but they also affected the Pentagon in Washington, DC. While these people are not as often highlighted their stories of determination and their will to live in the face of our nations worst tragedy are reminders of the true American spirit.

Lieutenant Colonel Victor Correa was in the Pentagon, in a second floor office on the E ring when the plane hit. He decided that he would not go out immediately, he stayed back and helped many others. One reason I think that Correa important is because he Is not only a 9/11 survivor but because he went back to the Pentagon the next day with other survivors. One thing that he said was “It’s important for me to go back to work, because otherwise I’ll have given the enemy a moral victory. They hit us hard, but they didn’t knock us out.” He currently resides in South Carolina with his wife Oretta and his 5 children.

I was at home when I first saw the news headline and heard about what was happening. I then had to go the emergency room for a test, and I was watching the TV there and heard that since the first tower had been hit that the 2'nd tower was hit, the Pentagon was hit, and a forth plane had landed in a field in Pennsylvania. I didn't understand why someone would do something like that. The next thought that came to me that I had not thought about yet was that my brother was in NYC just a block away fro the twin towers and that he was Supposed to come home that night, but wouldn't be able to come home. I was really worried and then called him and I was very happy he told me that he was safe and nothing happed to him.

I was laying on the couch watching the Today show about to go to class at Clemson, and I was very in shock about the events that I just saw that happened.
