Random 10 Friday

I'm so glad this was a short week with Labor day on Monday. I'm so tired. Today is also September 11th. Here's what I remember about doing during the attacks:

I was a senior in high school at the time. The state fair was beginning and all the kids in band were on there way there to play. I wasn't in band so we just went to regular classes. My first class of the day was normal, then I went to my second class- senior English. A few students who had just gotten out of current events class mentioned something about a plane crash, but no more was mentioned. At that time people still thought it was an accident. Then my next class was American Government. The teacher was watching the events on TV. We watched as the first tower was reported as fallen. Then we watched the second tower fall. The teacher was freaking out. Then next couple of classes all we did was watch what was happening on TV. I remember being worried that it was the start of WWIII- which was scary. At one point we watched reports of people celebrating the attacks and we were all appalled. When school was over, I went home and my family made sure to watch the continuing coverage and then the news on BBC to see what the world's reaction was. It was quite the day, and even 8 years later I remember it in great detail. It was my generation's Pearl Harbor.
