Where Were You On September 11, 2021?

Most people remember where they were and what they were doing. This was the worst terrorist act in America. The scene was hard to watch, with people jumping off buildings. I didn’t know the buildings would fall, wasn’t thinking that day. I was rushing out the door to catch a plane to Russia. The airport shut down right as I arrived.

I watched the footage every day and keep a journal of my thoughts. The first thing I wrote was “This is World War III”. I talked with my gramps about my thoughts and tried to pull his thoughts out but Soldiers who’ve seen battle don’t want to talk about the brutal memories.

The country rallied together to help like I’ve never seen. My only complaint is the Soldiers that came back from Afagastan didn’t get the parades.

This day still leaves a hole in my heart, thinking about all the death and firefighters who have become ill from working the fire.

Sending Peace and Love.

  1. 7th grade, Writing & Publishing class. My teacher had someone knock on the door and she rushed to turn on the TV and we saw the other tower get hit and witnessed people jumping. It was awful. I don’t think anyone in school that day actually went to class, they let us go early. I was depressed for weeks after.
