6th grade, students leaving early?
Date Submitted: 11/11/2015
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.
I stood there feeling bad about whoever was in the plane or helicopter, but not feeling anything ominous... THEN... I see it... It was almost like slow motion but it was moving so fast... So low... You didnít have time to gasp... It hit the second tower and disappeared, and suddenly the biggest fireball I have ever seen in my life just shoots wide and high into an ocean blue sky... Whoever wasnít stunned on the train suddenly screamed as everyone ran to the windows...
