How has the way strangers treated each other different on this day?
On this very sad day, everything happened. In the morning at 8:30, a plane hit the first Twin Tower. A while later at 9:08 a.m, another plane hit the second Twin Tower. After the planes crashed, everyone was being treated nicely. Strangers were helping people they didn't know.
When Alex and NuNu go on the bus, they have a contest where they look out the window and they have to keep a straight face while looking at strangers. It is hard because people have a bus face ( A bus face is where they just look at the kids on the bus weirdly.) so it makes it hard. On that one day, when they were going to play that game, everyone looked at them and gave them a nice smile. Strangers were helping people get out of the towers and helping them walk to where they would be safe.
It was a hard job to do, about 30 minutes later, the first Twin Tower collapsed still with people inside. All the firemen were trying to get the people out in time. Not everyone survived the first Twin Tower collapsing. Then, the second Twin Tower collapsed. Only a couple people survived that one too. Smoke and debris covered lots of New York. It was crazy!
Everyone was extra nice, kind, and extremely friendly. This wouldn't really happen on a normal day in New York. Lots of times people don't care what other people are doing or where they are going. Strangers don't go up to people and say, “What are you doing” or “Where are you going.” On that day people wanted to make sure everyone got home to their families. That task was very challenging. Strangers from all over New York helped out big time. A lot of people didn't get to come home because they didn't survive the attacks of September 11, 2001. We will always thank the strangers who helped and who really tried. We will also remember all the people who had died from the attacks of September 11, 2001.
