I remember being in ny in class in school when the first tower was hit on 9/11. we were all rushed out of the room into the auditorium. no one had any answers for us. shortly after at 10:28 the north tower collapsed and that’s when we saw the first images of what was happening. i had a bunch of friends who had both parents working in the towers. everyone was crying and panicking. then next 24 hours were surreal. i had never experienced anything like this ever in my life. but what i remember better than anything was the hours following this tragedy when people rushed to the scene to rescue and help, many of whom unknowingly were putting themselves in harms way. i’ll forever pay respect to those lost on this day and to those who put their lives on the line to help others as it was one of the few days i can remember in my life time we put aside our differences and banded together as a country.
