“I don’t really remember because I was like 4 years old and young, but I heard when I got older. … People who were working, they didn’t even know what was going … on. They were working at their jobs and something just happened, and they ended up dying.”


“I was at school, and I was in my classroom and … I just started seeing teachers feeling down. And I was like, ‘What’s wrong?’ … They just put it on the news right away. They put a TV right inside the classroom, and we watched the news. And we [saw] everything, how the buildings collapsed. And I was like, ‘That’s crazy.’ … A lot of innocent people lost their lives, and that’s sad.”
