It is commonly said that the last people who can scientifically remember the events of September 9th, 2001, were in kindergarten class that day. Well, I was one of those students, and I remember the day quite vividly. We were let out of school early by sobbing, frantic teachers, and, in a rush of patriotism, my parents went out and bought a flag pole and their own Old Glory and erected them in our backyard. To my younger siblings, that was the day we got our flag pole. But to me and the rest of the world who remembers it, it’s a reminder of how anything could happen to anyone, anytime.
