10 years

11 Sep

“Where were you on 9/11?” It’s my generation’s version of the “where were you when Kennedy got shot?”question.

I’d been in college for 2 weeks. Sitting in my Communication Arts class we’d just taken a break when my professor came back in and said we were moving class up to a room that had a TV…something had happened.

As we walked into the room I saw the second plane hit the World Trade Center. I, along with everyone else could not believe our eyes. Our world completely changed that day. I wouldn’t know until almost 6 years later how much that day was going to change my family.

So it’s been 10 years since that day. Tomorrow, I’ll be remembering those who lost their lives that day and in the 10 years after defending our country.

Where were you?

    It is our generations version of the Kennedy question. I had just moved to Chicago. Was living with my brother and was jobless at the time. He came to my room and said “get up and come watch this”. We stood in the kitchen silently watching the TV trying to process what had just happened.
