When Did You First Hear of 9/11?

9/11

Posted by JuliaRise on 2011-08-08 01:01:14

I was in kindergarten (in Iowa) when it all went down. The superintendant called two different assemblies (one for elementary, one for Jr./Sr. High). I don't really remember what he said, but I do know that I didn't understand. All I really gleaned was that his daughter had been in an accident (she was in one of the towers, but got out safely). I didn't understand until a few years later what had happened. How do tell a bunch of kindergarteners that someone hates them because of where they're from? How do you explain to them that some great asscap just killed thousands of people because they were in America?
