LC Story: Story

I was walking home from class at my university on the morning of September 11, 2001. I was taking advantage of one of Americans' greatest privlages, the opportunity of education.

After learning of the events that had occured, I was numb, dazed and fearful. I called my mother, friends, everyone I loved. I attended the reast of my classes that day but spent every other second following the news and talking with others. I cried, I counted my blessings and I prayed.

LC Story: Memory

There was a different feeling in the air, different looks on the faces of my fellow students walking past me. I remember the awkwardness between everyone.

LC Story: Affects

I feel America has suffered as a nation but also has healed and grew stronger as a nation. It has affected myself in several ways. I count my blessings everyday for the opportunities I have as an American.
