I first learned about 9/11 when I was 9 years old. I was with my Grandma and we saw videos about it on television. I was so surprised and scared to ride on a plane again. What the terrorists did was very scary to me. I can’t imagine people doing that to another country. Since then I’ve seen a lot of videos and pictures of what happened that day.

I was almost a year old when 9/11 happened, so I didn’t know what was going on at the time. My mom was at the house with me and she was crying as she watched the events. My dad was on his way to work and he heard about it on the radio. After awhile, my mom took me to the baby sitter then she went to work.

That’s my story about 9/11.
