Today is the anniversary of 9-11. Ten years ago, at 7:59 a.m., an airplane took off from Boston. Fifteen minutes later, another airplane took off. And within an hour of that, all hell broke loose in our city. Every one of our lives changed because of what happened that day.
This post is an opportunity to share memories. Every adult that I know can tell you exactly where they were on 9-11. Many of you were only two or three years old in 2001. But even you might have memories of your own. In your comment, you answer any of the following questions:
- Where were you on September 11, 2001? What do you remember? How did you feel? What did you think was happening?
- Where were your loved ones on 9-11? Have you asked your parents what they were doing, what they were thinking, how they felt? Other family members? Older friends? Teachers? What are their stories?
- How is your life different today because of 9-11? What were the consequences for you personally? Did you move to a different place? Did people in your family join the military and fight in wars?
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
