On 9/11 I was up early getting ready for work. I was watching the news and eating a bowl of Rice Crispies. I was working as a Law Inforcment Officer at Sky View High School. The news people stopped what they were talking about and said that one of the Twin Towers had been hit. They were saying that it was an accident but I knew it was a terrorist attack. I waved my wife to come into the room and I said “watch this.” She didn’t know what she was watching but then the second Tower was hit. We both didn’t know what to do or think, we were both in huge shock. I went to work and I usually teach a little meeting but the whole time we were all gathered around the TV watching every little bit. The principal called me to the office and while I was there talking with him, the first tower collapsed. I never felt my heart beat that hard in my life. The attack didn’t change my daily basis, I was just more thoughtful for the people around me. The view I now have on Muslims I never wanted to go on a plane again, and I always check to see who is on the flight I’m on. Today, 9/11 has shown me to be more caring of others because over the years, things have gotten worst.
