I don’t clearly remember September 11th.

I was in 5th grade at the time, and it was our 3rd week in school. Nobody knew about the attacks that happened early that morning. The principal didn’t announce anything about the WTC attacks.

I got home around 3, and my mom was suprisingly there early.I asked her “why are you here so early?”.

My mom works in Chicago and works by the sears tower. she said they evacauted them, in case a plane attacked the sears tower.

I didn’t know what she was talking about. She just told me to look at the TV

They were showing over and over when the 2nd plane hit one of the towers.

I was really confused. and very shocked. I cried a little bit. But i didn’t really understand what was going on, because i was only 10.

As i grew older, i realized that it was a very tragic day. And to know that many lives were lost.

Every time i watch the videos on youtube, i cry so much. especially the people that jumped to their deaths. that truly made my heart sink.

I’m truly sorry for all the people that lost a loved one on 9.11
