I remember getting ready to leave for school, and as we were watching Arthur tv, some breaking news came up, showing us the plane crashing through one of the twin towers. I had to leave for school but I kept watching and I remember the shock and horrifying way my stomach dropped when we were all even more surprised about the second plane crashing into the other tower. I was numb, and I couldn't think of anything else as I watched the towers collapse into themselves. It was all anyone at school could talk about. I was only nine years old, but I understood so well, and I was hurt by what had just happened to our country.
Just a month before we were lucky enough to be in New York City and get a photo of us with the towers before the whole thing happened. I can't think of how many times I am so happy we weren't there a month later.
|no, I was not a pregnant looking child, just a girl whole liked to do strange poses wherever she went.|
Let us always remember, and always stay united by hope.
