Where were you?

I was at school. My 10th grade year. That morning was so strange because I woke up with a bad feeling and begged my mother and grandmother to tears not to make me go to school and for my mother not to go to the meeting she had in DC. Because she works for the government we weren't allowed to know where the meeting was exactly. 

On my way to my class, I heard people talking about a plane and as soon as I got to my History class, the teacher explained everything. I got there just in time to see the second plane hit. 

Because Baltimore is right between NY and DC, they closed school early and I went home only to realize my mother's phone was there. It wasn't until she got home around 7 that night that I let go of the breath I was unknowingly holding and cried like a baby.
