Today is September 11. Today we honor the lives lost and the lives affected by the horrendous acts that happened on September 11, 2001.

Still to this day I can remember where I was and what I was doing on this day. I was sitting in the school cafeteria serving an in school suspension for having too many detentions. The was chaotic when it happened and went on a lock down. Teachers and students were all over the school in a panic. I ended up stopping one of my friends to find out what was going on as I wasn’t in the loop of the purpose of the chaos. There was students and staff that had family and friends working in the Twin Towers. When they finally realized I was still in cafeteria the principal had me go back to class. We had just had new TV’s installed in all the classrooms and it was being broadcast all over the school on the news channels that we watched after lunch.
