America at war
I was in Mr. Louis' Auto mechanics class at Lanier County High School. We watched the second plane hit live on TV. My cousin Margery was interning through Vanderbilt and we did not know she was alive for days. I tried to sign up with the army soon afterwards but asthma and medications prevented it. I have always regretted that failure of duty.
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.
