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.
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.
