Still vividly remember what I did on 9/11 and I was only a kid. Couldn't imagine what it would have been like to be older and in NYC that day.

I was in 7th grade. I remember when I got home from school, I had on every TV in the house to the news. I know it sounds bad, but I was really excited. I was way into Tom Clancy at the time, and I thought it was something straight out of one of his books.

I was in 5th grade, and my teacher lied to us about the towers falling, saying that they only got hit but they didn't fall. Looking back I understand her incentive, but it was devastating to go home early and see my housekeeper crying, and I was worried like I've never been that my parents could have been dead (both my mother and father do strenuous work in the city). I'll never forget the appreciation I've ever had when I saw both of them walk into my house. R.I.P. to all the victims. That is all I have to say about the matter.

I was in 5th grade and in the morning they thought it was bombs but by the time we got home they knew it was planes, and I've never been so afraid in my entire life as on that day. At Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, twenty miles away, a low-flying plane caused a sonic boom and covered the base in dust, and the news was reporting it as a possible terrorist attack for like ten minutes before they figured it out, and I was crying and scared shitless. R.I.P. to the victims, praise to the rescue workers and police and volunteers, and here's to eight years on with no more attacks.

Will it ever be politically or socially correct for me not to care anymore? People I don't know don't get 8 year grieving periods.

Unfortunately no. I lived a mile away from the WTC. My uncle worked in the second tower. He saw shit that no one should ever see and he's been able to move on with his life. I've moved on as well. It was all a really fucked up situation but I think it's a lot healthier to move on and try to improve your life as it is rather than dwell on the past and let it mess you up even more.

I don't think we're dwelling. Once a year, the horrible, unshakable feeling comes back and I remember those who lost their lives and move on until the same time the next year. There's nothing wrong with offering a brief "in memoriam" once a year.

I was 9 or ten. are teachers didnt tell us anything. All they told us was to give this letter to our parents. Which talked about 9/11 and things. I saw what happend on the news that day. Didnt understand till a few years later cause I was only 9. Anyone belive the conspiracys on 9-11 I dont have proof but im leaning towards beliving all conspiracys. I can understand if you dont to belive it. 911 couldnt of been any worse but finding out the U.S government did it makes it worse.
