I was in 5th grade on 9/11/01 in Alabama. I remember how normal that day was up until about lunch time when the buzz around all of us kids were that aliens were attacking us! In that moment, I had completely believed it, ALIENS! Looking back now, I realize how young and impressionable I was, but none of the adults were saying anything to us. Once I got home, my mother, furious with the school that they didn't tell us anything, explained what happened. I never really understood, and slowly with time, and the anniversaries caught on, but being so young and "so far away" from NYC, it wasn't much to me. Now, I've visited the site 4 times, I study it, look up stories, and really feel for those lives that were effected that day.

I tried searching all the news sites on the web, but it was impossible to connect to any. I spread the news through the office and we soon connected a television in one of the conference rooms. The site of the towers in flames was horrifying.
