Where Were You?
Where was I? I was in tenth grade at Fergus Falls High School in Minnesota, out on the football field with the marching band practicing for the upcoming Homecoming Field Show. Upon entering my first hour class that day (American History, ironically enough), we watched some of the TV coverage of CNN. Mostly, I just remember being really confused (as were most people) as to what had happened. Looking back, we now know that Islamic terrorists were responsible for the terrible tragedies that day, but at the time it was just a horrifying mystery. At the next bell, I ended up in French class and saw the second tower fall into rubble, with that infamous radio antenna going straight down.
Please take a moment out of your busy schedule today to remember those who died on this day eight years ago, as well as those heroes who tried their best to clean up the mess.
