I was in my 5th grade classroom when everyone got called the auditorium. We were told the news and people were freaking out. Parents called out their kids and picked them up. I remember staying in school for the rest of the day and coming home to find my parents (as my dad was alive at the time) and sister watching the news and seeing the towers collapsing over and over :( A girl in my brother's grade, who was only 7 at the time, lost her father that day. My friend in a town 5 minutes away saw the towers collapsing from a classroom window.
