Hard to imagine it happened 11 years ago, but I remember 9/11 quite well.
I remember being in 2nd Period just finished a test on the Middle East, and the Coach turned on the TV. It played out over television throughout the whole day.
I remember Principal Tompkins came over the PA system and told us what had happened. The bell rang for the next class and I don’t remember anyone talking.
I remember Mrs. LeBeouf wiping tears from her eyes, and Rebecca had to leave school that week because her uncle was in New York for a meeting at the World Trade Center that morning. We were in shock. We cried. We prayed.
I remember we came together as a country. We were united. We shared common values.
I remember we were proud to be Americans, and I will never forget that.
