I was a 7 year old girl, living in Minnesota at the time. I remember getting up before school and turning on the TV. At that age, I liked watching the early morning news shows. I remember watching what was happening on TV that day, not really understanding what happened, but I knew that it was bad. I still had school that day. I even remember being stung by a bee on the blue monkey bars that day, and I remember the girl who took me to the nurse. Later that day, I had a doctor’s appointment. The TVs in the waiting room were all switched to the coverage. I tried to watch it, but my mom didn’t let me. I will never forget that day.
