Today marks the 11th anniversary of 9/11. It’s hard to believe that it was that long ago. I will never forget where I was when I heard about the attacks… I was actually in high school at the time and had an open hour first period, so I was walking the halls with some friends when we overheard the radio in one of our teacher’s rooms. I remember the rest of the day was solemn, and even remember listening to George Bush’s speech the following night about the attacks on my way home from piano lessons. I have a scrapbook that I together with my favorite articles and memories from the time and it’s interesting to look back on, not only to see how the local WI news was reporting on the attacks but also to see what my own perspective of the day was.
I can’t even imagine what it was like to live in NYC that day and what it was like to see the towers fall. So many great heroes were lost on this day and it is one that as Americans, we will never forget.
Where were you on 9/11?
