9/11 Exactly Where I Was

I remember exactly where I was on 9/11/01. My next-door-teacher came to get me from my classroom to show me on the television what was happening. 

At first, I thought it was a Hollywood stunt. Then, I thought it was a joke. He explained it to me, and reality sank in. 

I realized why the skies had been eerily quiet that morning. I lived near a major airport, and I was so accustomed to planes flying over every few minutes, and there was nothing in the sky. I was at the school where I taught at the time. My twins, age five at the time, were at a different school for kindergarten. 

I know exactly where I was, and I remember how I felt. I hope we never forget. I hope we are better prepared for a tragedy such as this, and I hope it never happens on American soil again.
