#NeverForget 15 years ago today, it began as a normal morning. I had just started the 8th grade. I was getting ready to head to school, when I heard news (from what I can remember a Good Morning America anchor) that an airliner that left Boston's Logan International Airport had apparently been hijacked. I did not think much of it. I got on my school bus, and continued on. About an hour later, I remember being in a math class. All of a sudden I see a couple of people running down a hall. Then I see a couple of more people walking very quickly down that same hall. I go with my classmates down this hall about a minute later to a classroom that had a cable television available. I then saw the smoke from the World Trade Center on that television. I remember so clearly my heart slowly sinking, when at the same time I remember a history teacher of mine saying to my classmates and I that this is an event that I will remember for the rest of my life. Well... she was right. For me, 9/11/2001 was my grandparents' 12/7/1941. A lot of time has passed. One thing we should all remember though. As much as we want to blame people, we should not. Today is a day of remembrance. #ForgetPoliticsToday
