    I was a sophomore, in high school, in rural Wisconsin. Some classes let out so we could watch the news, some classes went on as normal. Last period we walked down to the tennis courts for gym class; one guy argued we should get out of it because of fear of terrorist attack; we all knew that argument wasn’t going anywhere.

    The thing that fascinates me about September 11th is that it never really changed my worldview at all. I already knew that Islam hated us, and that such attacks were possible. I mean, I hadn’t imagined planes into the Trade Center, but waking up in a world where a couple thousand Americans could be slaughtered in a day was the same world I had gone to sleep in.
