The World Had Stopped

Captain’s Log    5,729

I was in the 6th grade.  Home for lunch with my parents.  Turned on the TV before I went back to school to see what was happening with the world.

Little did I know that the world had stopped.

    I was in art class at Roosevelt Jr. High. We had no idea how it would impact us for years to come.

    I often wonder who had that kind of power and who backed that kind of power

    I was in 7th grade and we ate at school
    It was announced over the PA. I was in public speaking class with Mr Stein, he cried and told us his opinion of the tragedy

    He was always my favorite teacher and I wasn’t wuite sure of the magnitude of the event but to see him cry made it very real

    It was the loss of innocence, the end of youth. Life would never be quite so good or quite so hopeful again. Dreams die hard.

    I’m old enough to remember, barely. Such a huge loss.

  7. So long ago we were all entirely different people. And yet, it could have been yesterday.

    I remember walking into the house and my mother was crying. I sat in the kitchen counter to listen to the radio. Remember it like it was yesterday.

    I remember like it was yesterday. So many things make no sense to me.
