Every generation has the one moment where they all remember where they were at when a momentous occasion changed our history forever.  Our generation will always remember September 11, 2001.  I was a sophomore in high school, sitting in science class when our history teacher ran into the room and told us all to turn on the tv immediately.  As we sat there glued to the tv, scared and confused, that is when we witnessed the second plane hit.  No one still knew what was happening, this wasn't supposed to happen here.  Not on American soil.  Were we under attack?  Was a war breaking out here?  We kept watching until the bell rang, and the next class we headed to the tv was already on.  As we kept watching the events unfold, all of a sudden the school was being evacuated.  Our high school, little Aurora, MO, was under a bomb threat that had been called in.  Our staff had no choice but to let us go home.  I remember being home and the sky was empty, not a plane in sight.  Not that where I lived was a high traffic area for planes anyway, but you get the idea.  It was a very eery day, and one I know I'll never forget.
