Favorite Quote:
To me, “FEARLESS” is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.

- Taylor Swift

One morning in September
I went to school
We did a little work, they called us out of class
I was confused
"Why are we going home, Daddy?"
"What did I do?"
His response: "I'll tell you when we get home, sweetheart."
But he didn't have to tell me.
I saw it.
The TV was on, I saw the plane crash
into the Twin Towers
The buildings burst into flames
Each time I watched it, it got
scarier and scarier.
Nobody will ever forget what
happened on the September morning.
It left us with heavy hearts and
a big gaping wound without
anybody to mend the hole.
We were alone
fending for ourselves.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece when I was in 4th grade, about 4-5 years after the planes crashed into the Twin Towers in NYC. I pray for the people who died in 9-11, and may their families be well.
