I herd about the attacks on 9/11/01 in the afternoon when school was about to end, our teachers knew something happened but they kept it quiet from all of us because they knew it would scare us, since we were 9 or 10 years old at the time. I found out from my teacher Mrs. Cutler, she said to us that there was an attack in NY on the twin towers and in DC at he Pentagon, after that she said for us to go home and tell are loved ones that we love them and pray for the familys who suffered on that day.
A million thoughts raced through my head. And then I witnessed the most horrific thing I've ever witnessed in my 36 years of life. A TV had been set up in the break room, and we all watched in horror as first one, then both Towers fell. I can't describe the sadness, the feeling was too intense to justify in words.
