Hey, just wondered how everyone was dealing with today, September 11th; 9/11?
I live in America, so it's a very somber day. No one I knew was on any of the planes nor in the World Trade Center or Pentagon, thank goodness. Sadly, I'm guessing that's not the case for everyone here.
I was in Math class in my first year of Middle School when it all started, but I didn't find out until that afternoon. The images on TV of planes exploding and buildings falling were so completly odd and sureal, I didn't know what to make of them. Later on I was more able to comprehend it and I felt like crying, but annoyingly enough, being an average American boy, I couldn't, which made me even sadder.
We talked a bit about it in History class today and our teacher said it's our generation's defining moment, sort of how WWII was for people of that time. He said it's going to be weird in about 30 years when kids learn about 9/11 in school and see it as just another boring event and date; that's sort of the nature of the beast.
What are everyone's thoughts and emotions?
