I was in 6th grade with the other kids in my class doing our usual routine. One fellow student got a phone call that they got to leave school early and they getting picked up from their parent. I was always jealous when other kids got to leave early and I was stuck at school, what kid wouldn't be? Then a second student got called down to get picked up from their parent and a third followed by a fourth. i was so jealous that these kids got to go home, but I had no idea. As the day continued, there was a time period where I heard and saw ambulances driving past the school one after the other every 10 minutes. Didn't make sense until 4 pm when I got to my cousins house and saw the news. An ordinary day that started with jealousy. Again, I had no idea. That type of tradegy was non-existent to me up until that day and age.

It was as if everyone in that church understood, the world had to change, that we had to change to rise above events like 9/11 and be a more united planet.
