Ten years ago when I woke on Tuesday September 11th, 2001, it was about 7:00am when I turned on the tv to see what the weather was going to be like for the day so I could dress accordingly for school. When I turned on the tv, the second tower was just collapsing. I had no idea what was going on. It all looked fake, as if it was from some movie.
I got dressed and my mom was sitting in the living room and I told her about the crash. She said she knew about the WTCs but not the Pentagon. She turned on the tv as I was leaving for school. When I drove to school none of the radio stations were music. I got to school and my first class was spanish. We convinced our teacher to turn on the tv. My next class was government and I remember my friend who wasn't even in my class just came in the classroom and wanted to hear what my teacher was saying about the attacks. My last class of the day was photography and my teacher had the tv on through the whole class so we could watch. I remember coming home and just being glued to the tv. This is so
I know being on the opposite side of the country some of us here didn't know how this really impacted us. Flight 93 was headed to SFO so people that were on that flight did live here. After these attacks there was a lot of speculation that some of the landmarks and buildings in San Francisco were targets. Luckily we were safe from any attacks.
I always think about how our lives have changed since that day. I am thankful for the men and women who fight to keep our country safe. God Bless America.
