I remember I was in chemistry class, learning one of our assignments from our teacher Dr. Brown. As usual we were horsing around doing anything else rather than paying attention to him. What caused our rowdy behavior to stop immediately, was when one of the seniors from another class (English 12th grade) came into the classroom and announced that a plane had just hit one of the twin towers. For awhile most of us thought it to be just a hoax, because the “messenger” was known for his “humor” but some words were exchanged between him and the teacher, whilst we the students listened with shock and realization that he wasn’t lying. Immediately we were allowed to go into the “English Class” where a tv was set up and a broadcasting of the incident was shown on all the television stations. Everyone was shocked and was filled with complete owe to what they were witnessing. Some people claimed that we were living history today, which caused us to have a feeling unlike any other. Sometime passed and the few kids who stayed behind, because most of the children in school parents called to take them out before school ended, were taken to our class after that period the news was heard. Whilst in those classes, the other tower was hit by a plane, an yet again we had a tv in the room to view the coverage over it. The whole day was one based on 9/11. No one was able to go back to the way things were, to studing for the test the next day, or learn a new lesson for that day was a lesson by itself. I remember and I think everyone in that school that day, will never forget the room they were in, the feeling they had and the sympathy we had towards all those people who lost any love one in that terrible incident. They will always be remember…
