I think I was in the third grade when this happened. September 11th is my birthday was obviously the day was at first a happy occasion. Then announcements start going off over the P.A . Kids start to go home. And then after I took the bus home, I get inside and watch the t.v and saw what happened. I thank God that I was only nine when this happened. Otherwise he might have really f**ked me up (well more than I already am). And the fact that I live near the Pentagon and was around it a week ago was too weird. I remember watching cartoons that night and then going to bed and laying in bed kind of scared of terrorist coming. 2001 was an awful year. Dale Earnhardt died, there was a serial killer on the loose near me (yall remember the serial killings in D.C? That was in my area someone got shot at a grocery store that I have been to many times), this and later my grandmother died. But I have been able to move on and America has moved on from the 911 attacks. Seeing Jr win the first race after 911 was special (don't think there was a single driver that was more fitting to win that race especially what he had been through that year), even Reese Whiterspoon hosting the first SNL episode after 911. I kind of in a way want 911 to see as just another day. And on a level it bothers me that my birthday is associated with such pain and bad memories. But to me that day showed what we are as Americans. And I will never forget it.
