Where was I?
I can remember it as if it was yesterday.
I was in the 5th grade at St. Thomas. Like any other Tuesday it
was my classes turn to go to the library.
The librarian and many other teachers were glued to the television
the majority of the time we were in there but I didn't think too much about it.
After returning to my classroom where Mrs. Sulens also had the
other half of our class watching the tv we were filled in with what was going on.
I am not going to lie at such a young age I didn't even know what
the twin towers were or the severity of what was going on.
The news station was kept on for the remainder of the day
and since I went to a Catholic School the whole school actually gathered in the church
where we prayed for all the people being involved in this horrible tragedy.
The following day at school Mrs. Sulens taught our whole class the words to
Good Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood.
To this day I still remember this song word for word.
This morning on my way to work I was reflecting
on what had happened on this day 11 years ago and thanked God that
I didn't know anyone personally involved in any of the September 11th attacks
and that I have not lost anyone defending our freedom.
