A day to remember

September 11 2005
Do you remember where you were when you first heard?

I remember... I was in the 7th grade-walking into Mrs. Hopkins's class, setting my stuff down and about to head to lunch, when TJ came in and said something about two bombs hitting the WTC and the Pentagon...
It didn't effect me too much then because I didn't know the "Twin Towers" as the WTC, I knew them as "The Twin Towers". So I really had no idea what was going on. I pretty much went through school just like any other day, hearing bits and pieces about what happened from kids that were getting to watch the news and what not in their classes. When I got home--that's when I got the full story, I watched the news, and my mom told me everything--Our nation was under attack. I was so scared... and I didn't really know how to feel, because I don't think I really understood what was going on exactly ya know?

Looking back now... I understand. And I will always remember.

*God Bless America*
And thanks to all the troops fighting for our country--I appreciate it SO much.

I had gotten all the way to fourth period before I heard. I didn't know the twin towers, the wtc, world trade center - none of that stuff ment anything to me. Someone explained that someone had flown planes into skyscrapers. I assumed they meant little planes that had ACCIDENTALLY been flown into skyscrapers and that could cause a maybe 10 or 20 deaths... I didn't have any idea as to what was actually going on until 6th period. Crazy sad stuff.
