Where were you on 9/11?

I remember where I was. I was a sophomore in high school. It was during first period, and I was in the middle of drill team practice. Our coach answered her cell phone during one of our routines. She went down to her knees and started crying.

She hung up and told us that the trade center was down, most likely from terrorist attacks. Some of us with relatives living in the DC area were also in tears.

I went to other classes that day, and the television was on to the news in each one, playing the horrific scene over and over again.

But I don't think devastation hit me until I heard later of the numbers that were lost.

God bless America, and those families that mourn loved ones today.
