ye i was in 6th grade in queens at the time and nobody even knew what happened, kids just randomly started getting called to the office because parents were coming to take them out but nobody had any idea why, my teacher even asked me "do you know why youre leaving?" because she was curious since i was like the 7th or 8th person within a half hour to get called to leave from my class.
Now I'm a proud firefighter in NJ
Also for anyone interested, there is a reallyyy nice 9/11 memorial in Bayonne, NJ called the tear drop memorial at the Bayonne Terminal. It's SUPER nice, great memorial, AMAZING view of manhattan and there's almost never anybody there so you have the place to yourself, nice place to take a girl too due to the amazing view and privacy.
Great place for a possible meet
here's a picture of myself there last year to give you an idea of the view
