Where were you ten years ago, on 9/11?
I was a senior in high school in rural Kansas. Light years away from New York and Washington DC. The future was full of promise and potential. I was filling out college applications and starting my advanced courses. I also just began my role as editor-in-chief of our brand new school newspaper. Below you can read the article I wrote as a reaction just days after it happened.
That scary day, the entire school was silently in shock. CNN was put on a projector in our school library. I was glued to the set with the other students. I’d only leave the coverage to walk over to the computer and refresh CNN.com for updated news.
