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.
