MckLinky BlogHop - REMEMBERING 9/11



I was a Sophomore in high school when 9/11 happened. I remember that day so clearly I can tell you so many details about that day *and I will*. I was in the auditorium in the upper left side 3 rows up taking the gqw and the Istep tests. We had just finished our first session and were let out to have a bathroom break and the news rippled through our small groups quickly. The teachers called us all back into the auditorium and told us testing would be canceled for the rest of the day and we were to return to our regular class immediately. I am pretty sure the teachers needed time to regroup and decide how they were going to explain to us what was happening. So we sat in our class rooms eyes fixed on the TVs watching the horrors unfold. They decided that we should go home so they let us out early *just after lunch*. My older sister came and picked us (my younger sister and I) up. She needed to get some gas and I will never forget sitting in that line waiting to get gas. We lived in a small town but we sat in the car for hours everyone slowly filling their tanks to make sure they had gas in case something more happened. I remember the picture my little sister who was 8 at the time . She drew the buildings on fire and people falling and God watching... For days we watched the TV. Everyone walked around like zombies We clung to our friends and our families and the news hoping for no more bad news...

  1. That was such a horrible day! I have so many memories too, but I don't know if I can put them on my blog! We only had one baby then, and that was the day I decided we HAD to have more kids. So they could have eachother if anything ever happened to my husband or me!
    Any way, thanks for sharing your memories.

    ps: you're a youngie! I had been graduated from highschool for almost 10 years!
