Remembering 9/11

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.

  1. Somewhere it is strange but everybody remembers what he did at that very moment or how he heard about it. I was sitting in my car when I heard it in the radio. I drove home and switched on the TV. Terrible, even some Belgians were amongst the victims.
