It feels like yesterday for those of us old enough to remember, but the horrific 9/11 attacks took place almost 15 years ago. There are teenagers walking around now who have no memory of the event.
The video below shows how a group of students at a high school in Northern Virginia reacted when they first heard about the attacks on the television inside the class.
From the description on YouTube: “On September 11, 2001, I brought my camera to school to shoot some footage of my friends before Calculus class. As I was known as one of the school’s resident filmmakers, it wasn’t unusual for me to always be carrying my camera around. The bell rang. Our teacher Mr. Perencevich came in and announced, ‘Some idiot flew a plane into the World Trade Center.’”
