In memory of those who lost their life.

I feel like I have to tell my story, from the perspective of a kid.
It was September 11, 2001, a typical school day. I was 11 years old, in my Keyboarding class, when my teacher gets a call from the office, and turns on our classroom television. She is in shock as the first plane had already crashed into the tower. At the time, we were thinking, “Oh, what a terrible accident”.
Then it happened. We watched, live, as the other plane flew right in. That moment we all knew. This was no accident.
I sat there, not really knowing what to think. My teacher turned off the television, and with tears in her eyes, she turns around, and says, “Today will be a free day, kiddos. Play games, if you want.”, and lets out a soft sob, as we remain quiet.
In the silence, we hear over the intercom, “****** Independent School District will be closing early today. We have informed all the parents to come pick you up after this period. Teachers, and students, go home with your families. God Bless America”.
My parents picked me up, after picking my little sister up, instead of making us ride the bus, and when I saw the car, I ran, crying, scared. My mom and dad us out for ice cream, and burgers, and we went home, and played board games the rest of the day. Mom and Dad knew that night, and the weeks after, we would learn of what happened, but they wanted to give us one moment without this attack on our minds. That night, we watched President Bush address the nation, who’s words finally my brave parents break down in tears.
Then, they hugged us, and put us to bed.
13 years later, that is still the clearest memory of any day of my life.
