I will always remember 9-11 and exactly where I was. I lived in Staten Island but went to school in Manhattan, Hunter College. I always caught the express bus earlier than needed so I could get to school around 8-9 ish. My school friend told me the day before to take a later bus with him instead and I had agreed. I am not sure what would have happened if I went to school during my usual time. I was awaken by my grandmother who told me about the attacks and in my naivety said it was ok and I would still go to school. How wrong I was. I stayed home and watched the news all day. I considered and still to this day that school friend as my guardian angel. Wherever he is, I hope he is doing well. To those whose lives were lost, we miss you. To those who lost someone, I’m sorry. We will never forget.
