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.

...in the aftermath, I attended an interfaith prayer meeting that left me in awe. And I know now that though there might be a few incidents no one is proud of, we have come a long way in the fight against bigotry.
