I was in first grade on 9/11, so I am probably of the youngest generation that will remember it. I remember that during the school day, we went into a lock down for a long time, then finally we saw small news clips on the announcements. I then remember my mom came to get me in the middle of the school day. I thought it was just because she wanted to do something exciting, and I had no idea anything bad had happened. It was until when we got home and I was sitting on the couch, my older siblings had been picked up too. No one had much to say the whole day and I really looked at the tv for the first time and understood why.
