On September 11,2001 I actually wasnt living where I am now (Humble, Tx). I was actually living in a small city near the Gulf Of Mexico where i just started my 5th grade year at Tenie Holmes Elementary. It was rougly around 9:30-9:00 when my math teacher went out to the hallway. All the older people seemed very worried and started talking about the twin towers. Since I was little I had no idea what or where the twin towers were. After that at around 9:45 there was an assembly called and everyone was to report to the auditorium. We were escorted by our teachers and we were told to sit quietly on the floor and listen very carefully. When our principal started talking she would start getting tearie eyed and would at some popints take a hankercheif and wipe her face. Almost all the children started getting scared and almost all the children were gone at the end of the day because of worried parents coming to pick up their children. When I got home at around 3:50 I went straight to the television and went to channel 13 and started watching the twin towers falling over and over again my mother got worried and said to me “It happened so suddenly and alot of people died.” I looked back at the t.v. with tears in my eyes thinking “how could someone do that and attack and kill themselves at the same time?”. Today I have become more aware and realise now why those people attacked us. From that day forward I never take anything for grantite and make sure I tell everyone in my family I love them over and over again every single day.
