9/11

I still remember how I found out about the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center.

I was in Indonesia, and I just got home from school. I started watching TV, and then I saw an image from the BBC channel of a plane crashing into a tall building in New York.

I didn’t know what to make of it at the time, so I flipped to other channels, and eventually settled on Nickelodeon.

The next day, I woke up to the news that another plane crashed on to the other WTC building, the Pentagon, and an empty field in Pennsylvania. School was shut down for a week, and that’s when I knew that this was serious.

The world as we knew it back then changed, and 9/11 continues to affect us today. I hope that you will take a few moments to reflect on 9/11, and to remember those who were killed on that day.

May we never forget.
