12 years ago, today, i was sitting in 8th grade civics class when, one-by-one, students were being dismissed from class because their parents were picking them up. at that point, we hadn’t heard the news of the terrible events that happened that day, but we knew sometime wasn’t quite right.
i will forever remember September 11, 2001. i got home from school and realized my my mom still couldn’t get ahold of my dad, because phone lines were tied up. i also found out that my dad was working a landscaping job near the Pentagon that day. luckily my dad was safe, but he was close enough, at the time, to see the plane hit the Pentagon.
so many lives were taken that day, i cannot being to imagine being directly affected.
i’m keeping this post short and sweet today. hold you loved ones a little tighter tonight, you never know what tomorrow will bring.
