I remember lying in bed while someone was watching TV in the living room. I heard something a plane hitting some building. I remember seeing about this not too long ago. I thought to myself that it was a single passenger plane. So I dressed up and headed for a music theory class at school. I kept the radio on, but didn’t have any information I wanted to hear about the accident.

In class, I remember a professor bringing in a TV set. We all watched in horror with the World Trade Center. My professor even cried. We were sent home from school, so I decided to meet up with my best friend. We chatted and listened to the radio all day about the incident for a couple of hours.

Afterwards, I headed back home on a train. On my way back I was going through all of the popular radio stations that kids listened to. Not one music were on any of the stations that I recalled. When I came home, my eyes were glued to the tube. Mainly ABC, NBC and CNN. I remember flipping through a couple of other channels and saw a couple of them being off the air because of the horrific event. My eyes couldn’t stop watching this horrific tragedy…
