It is September 11th, 2010. I would like this post to honor all of the people who lost their lives, on this day 9 years ago. It's hard to believe that it has been 9 years already, because it is so clear in my mind like it was yesterday.I was 12 years old, and in Middle school. I remember an announcement saying that all TV's were to be turned off, and all students were to report to their advisorys. That afternoon, our whole school watched everything unfold on the television, and even though we were so far away, up in Wolfeboro, NH, we felt so close. We felt close because we all live in America.I pray that all of our men and women overseas come home safely.

Yesss, Sept 11 will ALWAYS stay with me. I was working at Sears Teleserve when we all saw it. I cried for close to a week, realizing America as I knew it, would NEVER be the same again... (Tears as i write this) Pls feel free to follow mine.
