|−|9/11/2001- I was in the 8th grade at St. Raymond's in East Rockaway. We attended mass that morinng around 10 A.M., and at that point, all of the students were clueless as to what was happening. All the faculty knew, yet would not tell the kids as not to alarm them, but we were told something bad has happened. Something very bad. My mom, one of the lunch mothers, was the one who informed my classmates and I what had happened, and as more and more children found out (parents began to come get their kids), kids slowly began to leave school early. My dad has worked in the city my entire life, and he was all I could think about. That day, my dad had a scheduled meeting on the 81st floor of the North Tower, and would have been in the elevator going up when the plane struck. His meeting was cancelled, and he was home early that day, thanks be to God. I' ll never stop being grateful to have my dad with me today. One of my classmates, Kelly, was not so lucky, and lost her father that day, James Haran. I was 13 years old when 9/11 occurred. I couldn' t even begin to fathom how and why this could happen in what I thought at that age was a perfect world. The pride that this country has is such a beautiful thing, and it is so amazing to watch us all as Americans come together year after year on this day. I am so proud to be an American.God bless the Haran family, all who lost their lives, and everyone who lost their loved ones on that day, and God bless the Molloy community. |+|

Having lived thrguoh a Thanksgiving where a puelbmr had to be called, I totally grok this. He eventually found that a squirrel had crawled into a pipe and died way too long ago; I've never smelled anything that bad nor seen a puelbmr that green.It's very nifty reading how you do research, thanks for sharing.In an unrelated side note; I'm re-reading Summon the Keeper and thoroughly enjoy the way you use words and humor. I'm giggling my way thrguoh the book.
