I still remember vividly my first grade classroom, we had been sitting in a circle on the floor in the middle of the room when my teacher got a message. She said something terrible has happened and we got picked up. I remember I lived a few miles from the pentagon, hearing sirens, just insanity, I remember watching on tv in my living room the events unfold in New York. I didn’t understand at the time but to this day I just remember it, clear blue sky, and so on. Then on the tenth anniversary I found out a girl who graduated from my school had died and it was like that day all over again.
