On the 11th of September 2001 I was playing Medal of Honor on the PS1 with a friend at their parents house. Suddenly his mother charges in and yells at us to turn the game off and that a plane had struck the World Trade Center. I was 11 years old and still had no idea what a World Trade Center was. The news footage was kind of surreal. Because we couldn't play Medal of Honor we went outside to play with model airplanes. Only a couple of hours later I realized what really had happened and went home to watch it on TV. When my dad got home he hadn't been following the news and I had to explain everything to him.
