I absolutely can't believe it has been 12 years.
I was in 9th grade, walking to my Health class when a fellow student told us the news in the hallway. I remember our school going on lockdown, and then I remember watching the news coverage in my parents' living room later that evening, seeing my mom cry as she folded clothes.
Even talking about it 12 years later still gives me chills.
