A Glimpse Of Blue  by Violeteuphoria

A Glimpse Of Blue

By Violeteuphoria

This is a piece that i did for a class at school. It is about the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre, but from the point of view of the tower itself. I realise I have taken some liberty with the event, so I hope it doesn't offend anyone.

So were learning about the slave trade and "The Middle Passage" (a slave trade route in the Atlantic around the 1500's to the 1900's I believe) in World History, and I was inspired to write this one, a very very short story about a person who was taken from their home land and forced to be a slave.
