Remember 911

Ten years ago today, I remember sitting in my high school business education classroom when we started hearing something was going on with the Twin Towers in Lower Manhattan in New York City. Instantly my students and I started to look at on-line news to find out what was going on. We read the first announcement about an explosion at the first tower. Then we saw the second one get hit by a plane. My students and I were in such shock that this could happen on our homeland. As my classes progressed throughout the day, all of my students wanted to read about the tragedy on-line and I remember how each was moved in his/her own way. In the days that followed by students created presentations paying tribute to those who lost their lives on 911.
