It will never be forgotten, just like people will never forget Pearl Harbor. I wish these things never happened, but they did.
I remember many years earlier, my mom telling me about when she that in 1945, she was able to leave the Manzanar relocation camp (one of the prisons for Japanese-American families during WWII) and she went to NYC to work. She told me she worked near the Empire State Building, and it was hit by a plane. At first, some people assumed it was a Japanese attack, but it turned out it was an accident due to fog. When 9/11 was happening, that was the first thing that came to my mind, except I could see the day was clear. I was watching news getting ready for work (I worked as a real-time captioner for hearing-impaired college/university students at the time). When the first building came down, I thought, “WTH???” Then I knew it wasn’t an accident.
Interestingly enough, after the towers fell, something else came to my mind. About 2 years earlier, in 1999, I was watching some TV special about various predictions for the new millennium, and one of the people consulted was a psychic. She stated that she saw the NYC skyline, and that the World Trade Centers were gone, and that there was lots of smoke everywhere. She stated that she thought it had something to do with planes; that maybe terrorists had dropped a bomb on the WTC or something. But she’d gotten the date wrong. She said she saw it happening in May (May 5, IIRC) of 2000. After 9/11 happened, I thought, “Son of a gun, that psychic got a lot of it right.”
