September 11th

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.
