i was only in fourth grade but somehow, that day is still so vivid in my mind. i don’t remember understanding the magnitude or exactly what happened, but i remember watching the footage on tv with my sister after school. i remember them continually replaying video footage of the towers crashing to the ground. it feels like it was just yesterday yet it’s been ten years. thinking about all that has happened in the past ten years makes us wonder what could have been. so much has changed in that amount of time yet the 2,819 lives that were lost will never know what could have happened. i get the chills watching footage from that day or listening to the live broadcast of the memorial service. i can’t even begin to imagine how they must feel. it’s taught me to really appreciate everybody around me and all that i’m fortunate enough to have. 10 years and counting but we will never forget. september 11, 2011.
