September 11, 2001 is a day that will go down in history as my generation’s “Day of Infamy”. It’s a day that will forever be frozen in time. I’ll never forget specific details when I first heard about the terrorist attacks.
When the first plane hit the North Tower, I had just arrived on campus at my high school. When I walked in to my first period Advanced Computer Applications class taught by Coach Curtis Higgins, the class television was tuned to CNN as news was breaking about the attack. We watched as cameras filmed the second plane crash into the South Tower. We witnessed images of bodies jumping from the burning buildings. As we changed classes all morning, no one was concerned about education as we were all on the edge of our seats with every breaking report. I’ll never forget coming home from school wondering what was in store for our nation and the world.
Today we mark thirteen years since the events unfolded that ultimately led to a global war on terror. For as long as I live, this day on the calendar will never be just another day. Take a moment and share with our community where you were on 9/11/01.
