Today is September 11, 2008. Seven years ago tragedy struck America. I am not going to write about it because we all know this infamous day. I thought I would share my thoughts and a photo with you.
Where were you on Sept. 11, 2001 at 8 am?
I was at Umass Dartmouth, my freshman year. I was in class when the towers were first struck. I got out of class at about 9:15am and was supposed to meet my friend for breakfast. When she didn't show up I decided to go back to our dorm. I saw her walking to my room in the hall and she said "Did you hear what happened" with a panic stricken face. I will never forget that day. Classes were cancelled for the day but there was NO ONE jumping for joy. Everyone was glued to the TV or on the phone checking on loved ones.
I hope that my generation never has another day like that. It is sad how everyone remembers exactly what they were doing when tragedy strikes. I know my parents generation has Sept. 11 and the assasination of JFK. My mom can tell you exactly where she was at that time. I hope that this country has many more happy days that just fall into our memories and no more sad ones.
We will never forget, United we stand!
