    I still say they should have rebuilt both towers exactly the way they were with AA capability of course. That was one of the longest days of my life..

    I think that would've traumatized people who saw the buildings fall and make it difficult to attract tenants.

    Never Forget, indeed.

    Yeah, still feels like yesterday to me in some ways. Now we live in a world with college students who were not even alive when it happened. Makes me feel old.

    I take my fifth graders to D.C. on a field trip every year, we were going a couple weeks after the shutdowns and cancelled and obviously not going this year.
    The pentagon 9/11 memorial is always a highlight and moving experience. I remember vividly the first class I taught where the students had not been born yet, who are now these college students.

    I spent 45 minutes talking about this with my students this morning, but I would wager a vast majority of teachers give it little more than a moment of silence.

    I was on the Bruckner at work and watched in disbelief as both buildings burned

    It was surreal how beautiful the weather was.

    Got to this thread late, but I was a first grader when it happened. Literally just started school, and all of a sudden, our parents were coming in to pick us up in the middle of the day. The teachers made up a story about a rabid raccoon in the woods near the school, so I didn't find out what happened until after I got home. There were a couple of my classmates whose dads were first responders, and thankfully they all made it out alive.

    I'm a couple years older - but we were given a similar story of a bear in the area.
