I was sitting in 8th grade math class on September 11th with my favorite teacher, Mr. Fuhr. He received a phone call during the beginning of our lesson, hung it up, and turned on the television, changing the channel to the news. What we students saw then was terrifying and I will never, ever forget the images. Our school was immediately closed down and my father picked up my sisters and I. I cried all the way home because even though I was young, I recognized the significant impact and loss of life that had resulted from the attack. Such a vivid, haunting memory. Thank you for the thought-provoking question.
