Has it really been 10 years? It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was in high school when it happened.
When I was in high school, I used to set my alarm to the radio. That morning when my alarm went off, the DJs (who normally had segments of fluff for entertainment) were talking about the first plane hitting the tower. Right before I left for school, I turned on the TV (which was uncommon for me to do in the morning) to watch news coverage. At school that day, all anyone wanted to do was watch the news coverage of the planes hitting the towers. Even with us watching events unfold on the news coverage that morning, I can't even imagine what it would have been like to be there in person, or to know someone who was in one of the buildings or planes.
For me and Greg, we remember it happening, what our reactions were, and what the reactions of those around us were, but it's interesting how our perspective of 9/11 will be so different from Evie's because for Evie, it will just be a topic in a history book. Things that have changed as a result of 9/11 will always be the norm for her.
