My mom was teaching her 4th graders when the principal called her out of the room and asked "Do you have anyone in the World Trade Center?"
The principal didn't go into detail and Mom went back to teaching.
She didn't learn how our lives had changed until noon that day.
You can see New York City from my town ...
That day you could see the smoke from where the towers had stood.
We remember those who lost their lives on September 11th.
