9-11


Being in the third grade, having absolutely no clue what the twin towers were, it's kind of hard to remember everything about September 11, 2001. I was so ready to go play with the puppets in Mrs. Davis's class (our elementary counselor), that I was paying absolutely no attention to anyone around me. That is, until I walked out into the hallway. I had no idea what was going on and why our teachers were crying, but I was just as scared as they were. After hearing everyone talk about it, I soon realized what a tragedy that was.
If I could commemorate everyone that died that day in some special way, I would do it. Even if it mean jumping off of a plane with an American flag as a parachute. It could symbolize what Americans are doing to keep us safe from terrorist attacks in the future. But, even though a lot of things have changed since 9-11, we'll never be 100% safe from danger.
