4th grader at the time
Date Submitted: 9/11/2018
I was in 4th grade at Charlestown Primary School learning social studies, we weren't told until that afternoon after the attacks happened, probably because we were young at the time and the teachers didn't want to make us feel scared, I saw the replay of the attacks at a friends house after school since I went over there to hangout after school for a bit until my parents got out of work.
...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.
