My mom always told me the story of when President John F Kennedy was shot and killed She distinctly remembered where she was who she was with and what she felt I couldnt relate to her at all and I honestly believed Id never be able to September 11th 2001 started off like any normal school day for me It was one of the first days of my freshman year in high school The morning was normal until I realized a lot of kids were getting sent home early I thought it was a coincidence I didnt know what had happened until our principal made an announcement over the loud speaker informing us of that mornings events It took a while to completely settle in and for me to realize what had happened I didnt know much but from what I knew many innocent people were killed All through lunch and the rest of the school day other students were crying because of family members or friends that they knew who worked in the World Trade Centers I watched in horror as my friends were frantically trying to reach their parents to make sure they were ok When I got home I sat down and finally got to see what really happened I couldnt believe it Seeing two airplanes filled with people smashing into two office buildings was unbelievable I will never get the picture of those planes out of my mind When I first saw it happen my eyes filled with tears The whole night I watched the news broadcasts of what happened and I cried through the whole thing So many emotions were running through me Scared upset angry and hateful I didnt know how else to show them except by crying Nobody that I knew personally had died but a boy thats my age in my school lost his father We all went to his memorial service and nobody left without crying
