I agree with everyone this was a very powerful!

It was a day of infamy. A day when innocence was lost for this country and our young people. We were no longer naive to our world.

It's crazy to think of what we doing the day the US was attacked. It's a hard memory to relive but it's important to remember. Thank you for sharing.

Another day that will live in infamy.
This memorial piece strikes home in so many ways because you put the images into words so professionally--I hope that word is appropriate--and so personally. I was not in your school, but my own reactions were exactly like yours. As a published work, Indelible is like an editorial written for one of the nation's best newspapers; poignant and hitting the mark.
On a human level, it... Show more

'I was no longer me. I was one in millions.' This says it all. We were all united through this one dreadful event.
Well presented Jess.
