Where were you?
It's 9/11. Therefore, did you know that 95% of americans remember where they were when they heard about it? My mom was in bible study, I had just been dropped off at pre-school, and dad was driving home from dropping me off. A mentor of mine was walking in the neighborhood and heard the news from some construction workers, and it goes on... In 6th grade, our teacher and the school held a minute of silence - The teacher said an announcement came on saying to "turn on your TV's" and most of the teachers went to the teacher's lounge ( many were crying as they watched, he claims ) and school got out early. It was pretty shocking for about every American, and about 3,000 died. So just remember that today, and as a couple of the TT's on Twitter says, #neverforget and #wherewereyou. And otherwise, have a great Saturday, and hope to see many of you at 6:30 PM EST in the Dryad Life tower tonight :). Well, I'm going to get a USB thingy for my computer and watch Michigan take on Notre Dame ( go blue! ) so, Happy Farming! *insert The Star Spangled Banner here*

I think I was at my Grandma's house, Mom was at work, and Dad got off of work and came and got me. Mom was working at an important phone business and they had to keep the phones on, so she was taken to some sort of bunker. Scared the heck out of her. All I understood at the time was that Dad was talking about something exploding.ReplyDelete

I remember that I was having recess during pre-k. The teachers panicked, ran outside, and they made everyone come inside.ReplyDelete
The teachers did bring in video game systems though for us to play with, I'll never forget that day
