September 11


Can you believe it's been eight years? I can't. I still remember the day as if it was yesterday. I was a freshman in high school and I was home "sick", but really I was skipping because it was school picture day and I had nothing to wear. My family still didn't have cable at the time and I was flicking through the channels to find something to watch. I didn't understand why every news channel was showing this building on fire. I didn't even know what the World Trade Center was, and certainly not what being a terrorist meant. I got bored of seeing this burning building on every news channel (still unaware why it was important) and put in a recording of the VMA's. It wasn't until my mom called the eye doctor's office that she found out and came in screaming to me that the World Trade Center was bombed by terrorists. Light bulb! So that was the burning building. I just thought it was a fire. If only it was that simple. Our lives have been forever changed. May we never forget this day.

I will never forget the day that it happened. A girl from our high school's dad was the pilot in one of the planes, so it hit especially close to home :(

I, for one, will never forget about this day. It doesn't matter that I'm not American, my prayers still go to the victims and their loved ones.

I was a freshman in highschool as well and in gym class. It was like the entire school paused and was in slow motion the rest of the day. I think most everyone remembers the place they were when the news was heard. It has shaped America forever.
