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

I remember that same day, I woke up at 7:30 in the morning and I was getting ready to go to school. It was my first time in high school.

And when I was in the classroom. The principal informed us that a plane has crashed into one of the towers on the WTC, the principal told us to stay calm and I told myself “This is bad”. Then when me and my two friends we’re going to watch the news on my house. The second plane crashed into the second tower and we saw the tower collapsing. I tried calling my parents at their work and they told me to stay calm, and don’t get out of the house, it can be very dangerous.

I cried and I sat down talking about the WTC all night. I couldn’t go to school until monday. All I could think about was this terrible tragedy.
