How has your life changed because of what happened on September 11, 2001?

Honestly, my life wasn't changed much because I was so young at the time. I never really experienced the world in a pre 9/11 world

How will you remember the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks?

I don't remember exactly where I was on 9/11, but I remember where I was where I heard about it. It was in 2nd grade, and our teacher, Mrs Cross, had all of us sit on the floor in the reading area of the room. I am not sure if it was September 11th or 12th. She was crying, and told us that we might see other adults crying throughout the day. She also told us about what happened to the World Trade Center. At the time, I didn't know what the WTC was, or what the significance of the attack was at the time, but this is how I will remember always remember 9/11
