10 years ago today...

I was in 8th grade at Carrington Middle School. The bell rang and we were switching classes...I remember hearing buzz in the hallway about something bad happening.

I remember walking into class and watching the TV, not really sure what was going on.
I remember the teachers making us turn the TV off.
I remember parents calling, and students leaving school early.
I remember lots of students and teachers crying.
I remember going home, and not being able to take my eyes off of the TV.
I remember going to church that night...and praying for all of the innocent victims.
I remember thinking...who would do something like this? And praying for them, too.

Where were you ten years ago, when the world stood still?

Now, ten years still hurts. Even though I wasn't personally involved, I couldn't watch the memorial on TV. I cried as soon as I turned it on and tried to watch it. I have a knot in the pit of my stomach and this feeling of panic. So many lives, so many innocent lives lost. So many families affected.

Say a prayer today.
