i don't want any conspiracy bullshit or anything like that, this is neither the time nor place to discuss it.
9/11 effected the people more than anything, and being that we, ns'ers, are people...i think it's more interesting to see where we were, how old we were, what we were doing etc etc. NS is in general a younger crowd, and i think the younger generation is left out when discussing 9/11. All i read about is how everyone was at work and so on...
So NS, where were you on 9/11/01?
I'll start. I was in 6th grade, and it was a beautiful day out. From my bus stop that morning, i could see planes leaving Boston, and i watched them gracefully flying off into the distance, completely unaware. The school day was completely normal, except for the fact that there were more police around, and we weren't allowed outside for recess. They didn't tell us anything, which in retrospect, i can somewhat understand.
When i got home, i ran off the bus, and my mother met me outside and asked if i knew what had happened. I then watched cnn replay the events of the day for hours. And that night i remember watching George bush address the nation, and specifically my father stated that "you'll remember this forever. This is going to be your pearl harbor."
and he was right.
