I stood, transfixed, as the newscasts that morning showed the planes crashing , over and over, into the Twin Towers. I drove to school and turned the TV in my classroom to the news. I told my students that day that their world would never be the same again. I wept with the rest of the nation at this senseless loss of life, and for the families of those who died as a result of this cowardly act. We still weep now. May we never find the need to do so again. God bless all those who still have empty rooms and hollow memories. 9/11/01 -- never forget.
