Seven years have gone so fast.....

......wake me up when September ends*. That's sort of how I felt this morning upon rolling out of bed.

Seven years ago, I was about 7 years old. At the age of 7, my young mind couldn't comprehend what was happening that fateful day. Now, as I look back in retrospect, I see that such grief is a hard thing for a country to bear, much less the individual citizens of America. God Bless the Red, White, and Blue! (with cupcakes, of course)


*it's a Green Day song that used to be popular, in case you were wondering where I got such a random quote.


Where were you on September 11th, 2001?

Wow, I didn't realize you were so young, first of all... And secondly, I do remember how terribly confusing it all was for me when it happened. I was 12 years old, sitting in French class when there was a vague announcement that came over the loud speaker... All day I kept thinking that there had just been some accident or a bomb at worse, but never could I have imagined that those two buildings were gone altogether...

The bananas I used in my ice cream recipe were pretty big. You could use any size, really. It's not a science.

I love that song.
I remember I was 10 in social studies class when the principal came over the loud speaker saying their was an emergency assembly. I was so young, I had never heard of terrorism. Horrible way to find out. :(

I was in England, away from my family and friends. Everyone over here was very supportive and lovely, but it was still rather disconnecting to be out of the country during such a time.

I remember EVERYTHING about that day, back in 2001 - I was 13 years old, sitting my 8th grade geography class, when all of the sudden an "emergency assembly" was called for the entire school. That's when we all found out what was going on. Such a tragedy.

Where are you in Ohio?? Comment back on my blog, if you don't mind sharing, so that I don't miss the answer :0)
