I was a 13-year-old high school freshman when I saw the first plane crash on the news. I don't think I understood the magnitude of the situation until I saw everything unfold in my first period class. It was then that I learned it was an attack on our country, and not just an unfortunate accident. I remember calling my brother that day since he lived in New York at the time. I was so relieved to know that he was safe from the falling debris. via Source.
