This  is how I remember September 11th. I went on a school field trip with my  teachers and students to the ruins of Old Leon, Nicaragua. After the  field trip I was exhausted and hungry. I wanted to get home and make  tuna casserole. However, my neighbors were adamant that I watch the news  on their television. I acquiesced and found them watching a movie. I  kept watching and watching, waiting for the credits to roll across the  screen. They kept saying that this was real and happening in real life,  that this was no movie, that this was a great tragedy in my country and  for the world. After we understood what was going on, my teachers and  friends came to my house to check on me and my family in the States. I  had not felt so much love and concern before that moment. For me, this  picture evokes those memories of concern, love, and friendship. I like  to remember September 11th as this picture.
