All my life when reading articles in the paper, magazines, or online, Iv'e never been able to identify well with the author like this. Maybe because our views were different. Maybe it was just our age difference. Whatever it was, I never quite understood the author's message and feelings as much as I did when I read this enlightening piece by Conner S. This was a horrible tragedy that deserves this high a level of commemoration. Hearing it all in his view is so refreshing. Its like replaying it over in my head. We were the same age when it happened so we had a lot of the same experiences going through it. Its so much better then just another redundant person's view on the event. Its great for teenagers to identify with.
