Ten years

Ten years ago I was sitting in my teacher's office when a fellow student rushed through the door to tell us a plane crashed into the first tower of the World Trade Center.  I had the same initial reaction as my teacher: it must have been a small one-pilot plane that flew off course. We quickly saw how wrong we were.

It wasn't until I saw the Towers fall that I actually understood the gravity of the day. I spent the rest of the school day watching the news of the event, unsure of what it meant for our country and the millions of people it personally affected. It's still difficult to think about how this moment affected our country and the world.
