Yes, I know you're all tired of all the what-happened-ten-years-ago. But I thought that, since it was ten years ago, and most of us are in our teens or twenties, we probably have some different memories. The adults remember what happened, but we were just kids.
I didn't know anything about anything until I got to school that day - my family not being one to have the news on early in the morning, and since we lived in California, the day hadn't even really started yet when the planes hit the towers. We were at home, with the television off and nobody phoning us to tell us to check the news, quickly - it was a normal morning. Then I got to school and everything was in a confusion. One classmate told me that something had happened to New York and there were only two towers left in the whole world. One said that she was the only one who had 'remembered' to wear red-white-and-blue. When class finally started, the teacher explained what had happened, even showing us what a box-cutter was. I was eight years old, and in the third grade. It was the eighth birthday of one of my friends.
I'm sure my memories aren't the most interesting. What do you remember from September 11, 2001?
