Well, honestly when that happened I was so little that I could not understand what was happening, I was 6 years old and I lived in Mexico, I remember it was 7:15 in the morning in Mexico, which is 8:15 in USA. I was getting ready for school (I was in kindergarden) and I went to the kitchen and took my breakfast, by that time I guess it was about 7:40, when my dad was waiting on me to get in the car. And I had to go to the bathroom so I went and when I get off I say bye to my mom, she was looking at the T.V. and she told me, tell your dad to put the news in the car because something is going on in New York. So I did, and I remember, I was in the car with my dad and he was listening to the news and some guy was saying something like “we don’t know yet what kind of plane was that, but that is a huge hole!” When I get home from school, my mom was watching the news, and when I saw the T.V. they were showing the images of what happened that morning, and I was in shock actually. That is all I can remember about 9/11.
