September 11th, 2001

September 11th, 2001. I was 7 years old. Didn’t have a care in the world.

I woke up sort of sick that morning, so my mom let me stay home from school.

I was laying in my room, watching Dora The Explorer, when my mom ran into my room. “Look!” She said, changing the channel on my TV. “A plane just flew into one of the big buildings in New York!”  

So, I watched the coverage. Even at 7 years old, I knew that what was unfolding in front of my eyes wasn’t right.

I freaked out and went outside, in search of my cat.

I was scared then, but of course, I was a 2nd grader that didn’t really understand what was happening.

Now, 10 years later, I understand what happened. Our Nation was under attack. But we came together. ONE NATION.

I’m still in shock over the events that took place that day, and I don’t understand why? Why someone had to hurt us? Why they felt the need to kill innocent people? Why?

It breaks my heart. 

Rest In Peace to the people that lost their lives on that terrible day.

My thoughts with the families that lost a loved one. 

Thank you to the firefighters, police officers, and emergency responders that we’re there to help then and the weeks afterwards.

Thank you to the Troops that risk their lifes to give us our freedom.
