Sophomore year of high school, I sat in first hour English class wearing my Lifehouse T-shirt I bought from their concert the night before, when the principal came on the loud speaker and told us that a plane hit one of the Twin Towers. I didn't understand the importance of the news until I realized it wasn't an accident. In second hour World History Class we watched history in the making as the towers collapsed. When we heard news of the Pentagon being hit I immediately feared for my family in DC. My cousin would later tell me she was able to see smoke from the Pentagon at her school just a couple miles away.
All those who were lost and who lost loved ones 10 years ago are in my thoughts today.
