Remembering 9/11

That day, I was on the school bus when I heard the whisperings of something on the news. Being the quiet girl that I was, I ignored it and continued reading my book. It wasn't until I got into the school lobby that I saw the footage of the first plane hitting the world trade center on one of the tvs. From that moment on, I joined everyone else and stood there, stunned, watching the tv.

Disbelief, shock, fear all hit me. The bell rang to start school, and as zombies, we headed to our classes. Every class was the same that day. We might have been given a worksheet or assignment, but nobody looked at it. Instead, we sat in class quietly, glued to the tv coverage.

I'll never forget the events of 9/11
