I was in the 4th grade when this happened and I didn’t really know what was going on until I saw the planes crash into the Twin Towers, but still I didn’t really realize the significance of what happened until later on. My dad was a Lt. Col. in the Air Force at the time and I just remember how the base was put on lockdown that day and throughout the rest of the month. I think that was what really hit me of how bad things were because I had always seen the base as a safe place for all. It’s just amazing how one little act effected so many.
I will always remember seeing the photos and videos of what happened on 9/11 because they were so disturbing and made you really appreciate what you had and what America stands for as a whole. Freedom will always be a part of who we are.
