Remembering September 11th 2001

I was in my high school's grade 11th math class.
A teacher came in and had spoken to the math teacher.
She didn't say much, just left the classroom and brought back a radio.
She had stopped teaching, and we knew something bad had happened...

I don't remember much of the rest of the day other than the students were quiet and scared.
Although my high school was on the outskirts of Montreal, we still felt the shock.

When the last class was over, all we could see on the news were airplanes crashing into the Twin Towers in New York city.

It was quite possibly the scariest event to watch.

But when terrible events happen that's when humanity steps in.

The brave firefighters came in to stop the flames and pull people out.
The brave policemen and policewomen helped keep their citizens safe.
The brave reporters tried to figure out what had happen and let the world know.

For that, I am grateful.

To the victims of that tragic event, I hope you are finally at rest.
To the survivors of 9/11, I hope you're finally at peace.
To the friends and families whom lost loved ones, I can't imagine the pain that day has caused, and I hope you have the support you need.
To the civil servants who lost their lives helping others, may your names be honored forever.

Please take a look at the 9/11 Memorial Website.
And this one too, 9/11 Tribute Center please.

Take care XoxoX.
