I was born in 1996, making me 5 years and 6 months old at the time it happened. being in Australia and being a child I had no real connection to the event and felt no real emotion. I remember it being on the news for like a month afterwards and at the time I was annoyed as the news coverage meant the cartoons i watched were cancelled. I couldn’t grasp the gravity of the situation. I now am 18 and see it was pretty sad event in human history. I feel that for kids around my age at the time it was like our moon landing moment.
