Lived in NY on 9.11.01?: No
Knew someone who perished?: No

I was fifteen, and in the tenth grade when it happened. I remembered it was in music class when the announcement came on. I felt chilled at first, and kind of scared. When I went home, I watched it on the News, but I didn’t think much of it after that day. It wasn’t until years later when I was watching some of the videos that it really affected me. I don’t really understand why it didn’t affect me as much before. Now when I watch the videos, I feel like crying. Yesterday I watched a lot of the videos on youtube of what happened. I was crying when people were screaming as the towers fell down.
I really regret that I didn’t feel for the people at fifteen as I do now.
