Fifteen years ago, I was in the 5th grade and being a little kid I didn't think anything like what happened that day would happen. We were just coming back into the classroom after we had our morning recess. As we were going back inside the classroom, we were told to be quiet as our teacher had the T.V. on watching the terrible news. We later found out that her brother lived close by the Twin Towers and she had to make sure he was alive and not injured, which I'm happy to say he wasn't. We, as 4th and 5th graders, we weren't comprehending what was happening as we were just little kids,
I remember coming home and having my parents have the TV on and all the news about the tragic event that happened earlier that day. My two older brothers understood what happened. I remember my parents talking to us about what happened. Sadly a lot of innocent lives were taken too soon. I know that I'm only one person but I just want to say thank you to all of the soldiers and veterans who risked their own lives that day and those who are currently fighting for our country and all of the veterans. Thank you for keeping our country safe.
