I was six years old, in the first grade. I was at school when it happened. I didn't really know what was going on. I remember being led outside with the other students and seeing the flag lowered. I didn't understand the severity of the disasters, though. It's probably a good thing that my family didn't have cable, back then. I can't imagine myself, at six years old, seeing people die, even if it was on tv.
I was asleep.
