“It’s crazy to think it’s been 12 years, feels like yesterday I was sitting in my 5th grade class wondering why all my teachers were acting weird. Asking my mother if our house was going to get hit also. I pray for all the families who lost a special someone on this day, but also for our country to come together not just on this day but everyday to bring PEACE. GOD Bless #9/11 #NeverForget #September11” – Tobias Harris
Just want to give my condolences to those families affected by 9-11 I hope this tweet reaches you.

“I was in 7th grade at P.A.U.P. in my writing class we heard a big boom & looked out the window to see a big smoke cloud over the bridge in NYC & watch the towers go down in amazement!! Yup I won’t ever forget that day!!” – Kenneth Faried
9-11. All I could remember was seeing smoke coming up Suitland Parkway from the pentagon and praying that my Mom was ok at work.
