Journal entry 121--World Events

What world event changed some part of your outlook on life?

I'd have to say the attacks of the World Trade Towers on 9/11 changed the way I view the world. It seems as though I was blissfully ignorant of the world's problems until those attacks. Now I hesitate just a little before traveling and feeling a bit harden to the world. I remember the morning of the attacks. I was in California and it was quite early. My friend called me to tell me to turn on the news. I wasn't able to turn it off for the next 3 weeks. With tears streaming down my cheeks, I went throughout the days in shock. I can imagine that event had an impact on many people.
