Kansas City Remembers 9/11

Brian Long

Ten Year Old Witness

Overland Park KS

I was in fifth grade at Oxford Park Academy, and that morning I had been dropped off early. When I arrived, the classroom TV was on with the news reporting that a terrible accident had occurred at the World Trade Center. It was a few minutes later that I witnessed the second plane slam into the South Tower.

The reactions of most adults I came in contact with on that day made it clear that the nation was under attack.
