Today is one of those days that everyone asks one another, “where were you?”. I was in my 8th grade math class, probably griping over a problem I couldn’t solve. Today is also one of those days that I can’t allow myself to complain about anything. Every day issues seem trivial when you think about what we were experiencing 11 years ago. As a New Yorker, but more importantly- an American, my sense of pride is incredibly heightened. I secretly suppress tears every time I hear someone sing the National Anthem (no one can do it as well, or with more enthusiasm than Whitney), so seeing the videos/pictures/posts inundating Facebook, Twitter, and all social media today is particularly moving. It all really proves that despite all of the issues we face, Americans can still band together.
