I woke up round 6:30am PT and walked into the living room where my dad was standing in front of the television crying. I asked him what was wrong and he couldnt answer me, my sister walked out of the kitchen and told me what had happened and my response was “what is the world trade center?” I have lived in America all my life and I did not know what the WTC was. That day I remeber going to school and everyone was talking about it, in all my classes we just sat and listened to the radio or watched it all on tv. I was in my 3’d period class when the second tower collapsed and i remember my teacher crying. it was then that I realized this was really big. a year later my school had a memorial and it was one of the most sad things I had ever had to sit through and I am sure next year is going to be worse…. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones, be brave and God is with you.
