I was sleeping my afternoon nap, and suddenly I woke up and I heard my dad talks with my mom outside the room. From the way they talked, I knew something bad happened. First, I was sure that there was a bomb somewhere in israel (as usual), and I wanted to know where it happened. My mom went into my room and said: "They've bombed the twin towers". I was tottaly shocked. I never thought those things will ever happen in America. I turned on CNN immediatly and watched. It was all happening too fast. A plane crashes into the Pentagon, One of the towers has collapsed, bomb in a shopping center in Pittsburg (never heard about that again), the second tower has collapsed, another plane is on his way to the White House.
I was shocked that day like I have never been before. I also had this feeling of relief because I knew that finally someone will give the arabs what they deserve.
Only about two weeks after, i have relized what happened.

I was standing in the office of my boss, the American Consul General in Tel Aviv. Whenever a group of people are huddled around a TV or radio in Israel, you know what's happening. Except, it's usually happening in Israel, not in the home country you haven't seen in months and are sure is the one safe haven in this world from all of the crap swirling about your head every day when you're living through an Intifada... I had been on my way out the door at the end of a long day at work. I stared for a couple of minutes and then kept on walking. Needed to be closer to my liquor cabinet if I was going to watch any more.
