Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

9/11 to me is mostly a blur. I however do remember being in my 2nd grade class, just sitting their learning what the average 8 year old learns around that time. I remember my teacher leaving the room and coming back about a minute later with a blank look on her face. She had obviously heard what had happened in NYC but my guess is that we were too young to understand, because she didn’t tell us much. Being in 2nd grade we had no clue so we just acted as if it was another regular day. It wasn’t until I walked in my house that I really realized what had happened. Both my parents were sitting on the couch, which I knew was weird because I would usually be home before my dad every day. They sat me next to them and that’s when I finally saw what was happening on the T.V.
