Transcript ft** Two men emerge from the rubble. One bows his head for a moment as the other offers support. That is all the time they have. Duty calls the heroes back into the greatest disaster our generation has ever seen. This day changed lives and will haunt minds forever. "It affected me the most when I looked at clips of the people jumping out of buildings. I got to see the reality of it. I will never forget it," said Calvin Reed, a senior computer science major. Terrorists hit the home front, and it caused new anxieties about daily life. September 11 forced many Americans to realize the country's vulnurablity to terrorism. "I feel more alert and kind of scared because another attack could happen at any time," said Jennie Phan, a freshman nursing major The attacks also forced some to look at the values they have been taught all of their lives in a different light. "I want to spend more quality time with my family. We could die any day. At church they say, 'each day is not promised to you.' But ever since 9/11 I could really relate. You should make the most of each day," said Tiffany Bryant, a junior human development and family studies major. Americans became more unified as citizens as a result of the threat of terrorism. "The idea of patriotism has become trendy enough that the capitalistic free market that America runs on has bombarded people with anti-terrorism propaganda. Basically, the government is tricking people into buying products to prove themselves right as a more unified society," said Lisa Reznicek, a senior sculpture and anthropology major. Regardless of how the camaraderie of race, religion and gender came about, September 11 gave the need to band together in order to protect the country's freedom and honor. -Bridget Brown Loving Words of Hope and Rememberence. Sophomore psychology major Sadra Sanchez remembers those that fell prey to terrorist attacks on 9/11 by signing a memory book in the University Center on the one year anniversary of the attacks. Several book signing stations were set up across campus so every student had a chance to pay homage. -Heather Nicholson A Little Pain For a World of Gain. Freshman biology major Anne Marie Nguyen does her part to save a life by being a blood donor on Sept. 11, 2002. All blood donations went to help patients at Saint Luke's Hospital - Heather Nicholson wmurnimiT^mm^ Silky Toshi, Freshman, University Studies "I didn't believe it. I thought it was a joke until somebody ran into the classroom and said, 'the World Trade Center was attacked. It's on CNN!' We turned on the television and I was shocked." ?aul Ratigback, Freshman, ?HARMACY "I was in disbelief. I really didn't take it seriously. After about ten minutes, I saw it on television. I realized that it was true, and they had actually hit home. I didn't understand how anyone could have claimed such an act in the name of God." MICHAEL LaCHAFELLE, FRESMAN, University 5tudies "I was sitting in government class, and a principal came into the classroom. He said to turn on the TV. So we did, and we were all in awe, cussing, and like, 'oh my God!'" TaimeChambers, Freshman, Electrical Engineering "It happened two days after my birthday. Sick at home, I had gotten a call from my dad. Then I saw what happened, and it made me feel even sicker." Linda Du, Junior, ?HARMACY "I kind of missed it when it happened. When I found out, first thing I thought about was my friend who works in Manhattan. I couldn't reach her, but then later in the day I got through, and that was relieving."
