9 years ago

9 years ago, I was in high school sitting in photography class.
9 years ago, my teacher turned on a TV in the classroom.
9 years ago, we watched as smoke rose from a tall building in NYC.
9 years ago, we watched in horror as another plane hit.
9 years ago, we watched in horror as towers fell to pieces.
9 years ago, my dad came to pick me up early from school.
9 years ago, I remember being fearful for my sister who was 10 hours away at college.
9 years ago, I sat at home and watched TV in complete fear for my life.
9 years ago, I asked "will they come here?"
9 years ago, I asked "what do they want from us?"
9 years ago changed the world that I would grow up in & my children would grow up in.
9 years ago is a day I will never forget.

Where were you 9 years ago?
