September 11 Attacks: A moment to pause

It’s been 16 years since this attack, and I still feel as though it was just yesterday.

During the September 11 attacks, I was 10 years old. I remember sitting at school, when our teachers started making whispers and asking children to come see them. Eventually, we learned of the attacks. Though I live in Canada, many of our families and friends were there that day. I remember seeing friends cry as they wonder what happened to their parents or grandparents, upset since we don’t understand the gravity of that situation that occurred.

It may not have happened on Canadian soil, but we try to never forget and pay our respects to those who lost their lives and loved ones. So today, I would like to pay my respects to those who fought to save others, those who lost their lives, those who lost loved ones, and those who continue to be haunted by this horrific day. Know you are not alone.
