I just started the fifth grade and I was sitting in class wanting the day to be over just like every other kid at school. Suddenly I looked up to see my teacher had dropped the phone and she had this look of shear horror upon her face. The clock appeared as if it all the life had drained from it. I looked over at a couple of my classmates they too were sad. I knew right then that something was wrong, it wasn’t until lunch that I heard snippets of what some of the kids thought had happened. What do middle schoolers know I thought at the time. However when I came home from school had dinner and turned the TV on I saw the one that I hoped I would never see. Even now ten years later I have wondered what life would have been like if it had never happened. Though I suppose we’ll never know.
