10 years ago is a date that I will never forget- 9/11/01. I was a 19 year old sophomore in college. I remember watching the coverage all day in my dorm room with my suitemates. I had an afternoon class that I went to. My professor walked in, said that his sister was missing in NYC, and left. My college had many people from the NYC area and we held a candle light vigil that night. Today I find myself drawn to the coverage again. It's hard to believe that my current 6th grade students were only a year old at the time. They have no recollection of the events. Life has changed so much since then. I can only hope that my students and that future generations will never have a day like this to be witness to.
