Tomorrow is 9/11--what are you wearing?

Wow, has it really been 6 years since 9/11? I can't believe it. I remember that I was sitting on a bus going to school when I first heard of the attack, even though I didn't know it. The bus driver got a call on his CB radio asking him whether he heard about what happened to the World Trade Center. The driver said that he didn't, and the caller told him to check out the TV the next time he came into base. Someone sitting next to me joked, "What? Did they bomb it again? " I didn't think anything of it and just went to class. Right after class, however, Mr. Nonny Nu called me on my cell and told me that a plane had flown into the WTC.

I asked, "Do you mean, like, a Cessna?"

He replied, "No, a jumbo jet. OMG, OMG, another one just flew into the other tower!"

Yeah, so that's how I heard about 9/11. What about you guys?

I hear that Osama bin Laden will be broadcasting a special 9/11 message in honor of this occasion. I don't know about you guys, but I will be wearing red shoes, a white shirt, and blue jeans tomorrow to work. Care to join me?

I was in psychology class. I walked into class and the tv monitor was on and there were a few people crowded around it watching the news. Without paying to much attention to the screen, I joked around that the news program had nothing to do with psychology, and my teacher explained what was going on. The first plane had hit. We all kept watching during psych and saw the second plane hit. One of my very close cousins was at college in New York, and had mentioned hitting the city that week, so I was really stressed. Our instructor permitted everyone to leave early. My cousin ended up being okay. I remember seeing a lot of different emotions out of people. The country sort of came together in a way I hadn't seen before. I still get chills when I see the twin towers in older films and pictures.
