“I think I was at home with my parents watching it on TV. And we were terrified; we didn’t know what to do. Just like, sitting there watching in awe, seeing these planes just like crash into the buildings. And we didn’t know what was going on. We were just scared, you know?”


“I was in school, and I was in kindergarten. And I was told to take the attendance down to the office, … and everybody was crying: the principle. And I just didn’t know what was going on. Then my mom picked me up from school, and I went home. I was still confused until when I got older and I realized what was going on. … It just made me really think about, you know, you just never know when a disaster will strike — just like at any moment, any time, any place, anywhere.”
