Today is the 8th anniversary of those who lost their lives to a terriorist attact in New York. I remember that day as if it were yesterday.
I was getting ready for school that morning and listening to the radio. When one of the DJ's said that an airplane had crashed into a building. I totally thought he was joking when he said and then it wasn't brought up again until I was on my way to school. Then said that another airplane hit another building. I didn't fully comprehend what happened until I walked into the institute building. This is where I found a few of my friends and a couple of teachers staring at the tv as the 2 buildings were being shown on fire. What!? What is going on? My friend proceeded to tell me that the 2 airplanes were hijacked and were purposely crashed into the Trade Tower buildings.
Why would anyone want to do such a horrible thing? Terriorist who hate us and our country, that's who!
That day I went to my first class, which happened to be american history, and my teacher told us to go find a tv on campus and count that as class and to write down our feelings of this day. So I went back to the institute building and sat in a vigil around the tv w/ my friends and fellow students, until it was time for me to go to work.
I get to work and my supervisor was shocked b/c she thought that someone had called me to tell me not to come in. I said no. Well she said go home and come in sat to make up my time. So I did just that and sat in front of the tv yet again this time w/ my aunt and grandparents, who I was living with at that time.
It was a very sad day for everyone, and I hope that we can all remember them today and honor them, as they were innocent bystanders to a horrific act of violence.

Sorry I haven't posted anything new in awhile. Not much is happening right now. Scott loves school and is ready to tell me all about it when I get home from work. When something new comes up I will post it. But for now you have to endure a very boring post from me.
