We went to the local park last evening where KB's friend also joined us. There was a small gathering of people for a 9/11 memorial speech. Police officers were standing around in the periphery. I had talked to KB about 9/11 that morning. I happened to over hear the conversation between KB and his friend.
KB: You know S, ten years back, some bad guys came in a plane and knocked down two towers by ramming the plane into the towers. Lots of people died because of that.
KB: Yeah, and now they have made a big water fall in that spot to remember all the people that died. And they have built another humongous tower next to it. It is 1776 feet tall.
S: Is this real life stuff?
It was such an innocent and simple line from his friend. But it is so true. The insanity of such terrorist acts makes you really think, "Could this be happening in real life?". It has to be the stuff of violent comic books. Not real life. I hope some day in the future that becomes a reality - that such things do not happen in real life.
