Forever & Always

Ten years ago today, I was sitting in my third grade classroom wondering why so many of my classmates were being pulled out of school by their parents. We were not told anything about what was going on and continued the school day like normal. When I got home, my mom told me what had happened.

Ten years later, we remember the horrible events that took place that day, and all of the people that were lost. That day changed our country forever. It brought us closer together.
At my school's football game yesterday, people were handed a paper American flag as they entered the stadium. As a 9/11 tribute, the band took the field to perform Amazing Grace. The crowd stood, and we all held our flags above our heads. I will never forget that image.
