Your Your Experience Being A Pakistani Muslim Immigrant Was
very different and you’re living 20 mile or 20 blocks away for any blocks away World Trade Center yeah it was just down 7th Avenue in Varrock direct line. You could see down 7th Avenue to the twin towers was where I lived what happened that day. I woke up because my answering machine. I couldn’t remember his call because was so long an answering machine. Someone I worked with said you’ve got to get up you’ve got to get up something’s going on and that was when the second tower hit and so what I did is.
I Went Up To The Roof Of My
building and saw what it looked like to cigarettes The Twin Towers with little red on top. It didn’t look like. They literally look like two cigarettes burning and so I thought that was so. Strange I went down and didn’t quite understand no one knew what was going on and then I came back up and one of them was gone and I had never they say movies where people external backwards when they can’t comprehend something it actually does happen you. You Yeah I caught up to the top my roof and then took three four steps back because what I was seeing the largest buildings in Manhattan were one of them wasn’t there but gone and then I watched the second one come down and the slow motion of that slowly falling a building that you get out of a subway and you look for the twin tower and you know whether you’re looking south or north is your compass.
In Manhattan Mm-Hmm It Was Gone There Was
a mountain Ria’s I’ve watched the Space Shuttle be ever watched spacial takeoff Yeah. You know how you’re so far away you see it it lights you see the smoke, You see everything and then you hear it Yes. Many seconds later was there that time differential. There was the sound you could hear something and then the rumble sort of built and then it kept going. It was sort of building and building as it fell The smoke dispelled along the streets, which was so strange and the thing that I remember the most is the smell For days there was this smell of incinerated everything materials flesh.
It Was The Most Acrid Smell
and walking around only person. I have ever heard Taani and I at for years at least a decade thank God I forgotten that smell every time I would think about the World Trade Center. I could smell that smell and it was smell it’s it’s I imagine what. What what new you smell things in wartime? It felt like being in a war zone and I was not as sold right not. It was literally just going to work that day, and we suddenly felt like we were in a battle zone and you saw the people walking along covered in the dust coming from the Trade Center.
Theyre Walking Up Towards Wherever.
This posters that people put desperately looking for this loved one Oh my gosh that was the most heartbreaking thing that you would see these on every flat surface of walls of hospitals and Grand Central photos They’re most adorable photo of a woman with her children saying missing missing missing missing and you knew on some level. None of these people would ever be found again. So you had a different experience yeah you went down to how many days later you went down. to one of a bar that two days later.
So The Next Day.
September 12th I was standing in line at 8 a. m. at St. Vincent to donate blood.
We Didnt Know What Was Needed.
We’ve no kind of injuries there were and at some point the line started watching me and actually I remember the line turning on me and I was with two friends and this guy said to me. We should kill you and your family for what you did and oh my god if my friends had not been standing there with me. I don’t think they’ve ever believed it would have happened in Manhattan and for the next week friends of mine would take turns walking me from home to work and back. I was in my neighborhood bar which I’ve been a hundred times and you know we all drank a lot more.
Ill Tell You That After 9/11 We All
that’s all we did all day. We just had no idea what to do and the neighborhood bar said Look man. I hate to do this, but you know some people are getting uncomfortable and would you mind leaving and I said I get it they’re scared. I’m scared and I laughed and I thought this is going to be a different experience that I’ve ever had in America and it was bizarre because you are an American. You are doing the same yeah you’re grieving the same way We are and I and a friend of mine.

A Very Good Friend Garth First Guy.
I ever met in university died in Tower one and I know this because I saw a photo of him on the wall at Grand Central saying missing and until that I didn’t know he was there. He was there for meeting and so the green was actually someone I know is gone. We can’t find him and I think it was so primal.
It Became So Primal.
You know it was it was war. It was life. It was death and it was just a very strange thing.
To Have That Rage Directed At
at you and it changed my life. It changed the way I see when people are angry and upset that it’s not about me. It’s about something else and so what is that other thing and that sort of changed a way I look at the world now after 9/11 is that things can happen and change the way you’re perceived in a moment, but it’s not about you.
