I was in 8th grade on September 11th, 2001. I remember it was about 9:00 in the morning and it was about 2nd period and I think maybe the upstairs 8th grade classrooms had to go down for the assembly on the Fundraiser we were doing. And I was talking to my friend Amber and sitting next to her and she said something like there was a bombing at the World Trade Centers in New York. I didn’t even know what the Twin Towers were. Then when the assembly was over it was 3rd period and we went to 3rd and 4th period and we were watching it on the TV…but what I can remember most is 5th period History. Since we lived in the town where there is an Air Force Base the school sent all of us home early…and since it was chaos because they couldn’t get all of the busses to all of the schools at the same time we all had to sit until they called our bus number…so a bunch of my friends and I all went down to lunch since it was lunch time…we didn’t switch classes after 5th period…and slowly as each one of our busses got called. I was one of the few people left in the school and when my bus finally got there I remember thinking where is my mom? And I thought she would be on a lockdown since she worked at the base but she was already home…Then all I did for the next 3 days was watch it over and over again. the Two Towers Falling.
