10 Years


10 years ago I was 10 years old. 10 years ago I was in grade six.

I remember my teacher telling us that something bad had happened, a plane had flown into a building. I remember going out for recess and talking about it. I remember coming back in and being told that a second plane had hit. I remember our class being brought into the library to watch the tv footage. I remember being scared, and not really understanding how this could be happening. I remember my parents watching the news all night.

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years. Half my life ago. I may have been too young to remember all the details, but I will never forget.
