To think 13 years ago, I was sitting in my third grade class with the whispers of voices all around. It wasn’t until I returned home that I realized (kind of) what was going on. With all the commotion and fast paced lifestyles people are living, it seems like today everyone still takes a minute or two out of their day to reflect on September 11, 2001 and the events that happened.
People across the country are remembering the men and women who fought for our country, the heroes we lost, and the families who suffered the loss of loved ones. In karmadata’s backyard of Boston, MA, the BC Eagles will be wearing helmets, gloves, and cleats covered in the red bandana print in honor of Welles Crowther. Welles passed away in the September 11th terrorist attacks after saving several people from the South Tower.
It seems as if every year, my memories of the day become less clear. It is important to remember and it is the only way we will not forget. I can remember the way I felt and the confusion that was going through my head. The questions I had were endless and seemed to be answered more and more each year. September 11th had a different impact on all of us, but today America comes together as one to take the time to reflect and remember.
