I was in my classroom when the second plane hit the World Trade Center in 2001. I heard about the first plane as I drove into work, turned on the tv in my room and then watched the second plane hit.
And that day, all we did in my class was watch the news and talk. I remember telling my kids, “You just saw the world change.” I didn’t know how, I didn’t know in which way, shape or manner, but I did know that right then, our world had changed.
And it did.
And today, I gotta say I am still hoping it will change some more because where we are, well… it could be better. A lot better.
