Re: 9/11: What Do You Remember?
I also remember a trip I had to NYC in 1999. It was a class trip with my 8th grade class, and we were able to visit the Empire State Building, but were only able to drive by the WTC. I remember thinking to myself, "When I come back, I'll make sure to stop there." I remember thinking on that day that there would be no stopping by to see the WTC. Upon going back to NYC in 2005, I remember looking at the skyline, feeling absolutely sick to my stomach.
I remember trying to picture what it must be like for the people that were there. I remember visualizing what if there was another school on a trip, and what if they were driving by that tower when that plane hit? Or worse, what if they were inside of the tower, sight seeing?
So many thoughts of horror ran through my head for weeks. What a surreal moment in life, one I hope I never experience again.
