I was in the 6th grade, sitting in class. My teacher turned the TV on and about three other teachers came into our room. My teacher started crying and we all sat and watched the towers smoke. At 11 years old my friends and I didn’t really know what was going on. It was like a blur and no once could tell us what was happening. When I got home my parents helped my siblings and I understand.
Everyone has their story on how they remember 9/11.
“I was at home.” Alan Jackson told CMT. ” It was on the television that the first building had already been hit, and the second one hadn’t yet. I’m sure like most people, I was shocked … like it wasn’t real. It seemed like a movie or something.”
“I was at home in Nashville,” Martina McBride told CMT. “And my husband called me on the phone and said, ‘You need to turn on the TV because you’re not gonna believe what’s happened.’ So I ran out and turned on the television, and he said he was coming home. He came home, and we sat there for about the next three or four hours just completely in shock and watching everything happen like the rest of the nation did that day. This was really the first event in my lifetime that happened that made me really realize the pride that I have in being an American and being part of this amazing country.”
I think it helps to recall memories to help in the grieving process that is still going on for many people today. For more country music artist recollections go to www.cmt.com!!
