Nine Years Ago...

My political opinions and my perspective on many things completely changed. I'm talking about the attack on America, September 11, 2001. I remember it well.

On the way to school that morning, the silence was deafening. Planes usually flew over our area at very regular intervals, but absolutely nothing was in the sky. It wasn't until later that I found out why.

I was working in my classroom preparing for the school day when the teacher next door came to get me to show me what was happening on TV. I didn't understand it. Was it a movie stunt? A joke? What? It took a while for it to really sink in what had happened... terrorists changed the face of America in a matter of minutes.

I try not to blog about anything too controversial, so I will just end this by saying, I will NEVER forget 9/11, even though I wasn't personally affected. I also want to invite you to visit ExperienceProject to read stories posted by people like you and me about their 9/11 memories.

Thanks for the link. For those of us that were personally affected, life will never be the same, but we appreciate all the more the freedoms and liberties we do have.
