A lot of people remember what they were doing, what they were wearing, and how they were feeling on September 11. That day had us feeling the lump in our throats and pain in our chest.

I remember September 11, 2001, clear as day which I was a Junior at Coronado High School. I was heading to first period, which was in C building for English class right at 8:30 am. We all sat down and the teacher turned on the television and has us watch the news. While we were sitting watching that horrific event, we could hear down the hall another teacher sobbing hysterically. My English teacher along with a few others were comforting her since her child worked at the World Trade Center. That whole day was so depressing watching the towers collapse and hearing the cries in the halls. Some people have been moving forward since that day and New York Daily News gives you a behind the scenes for the light rehearsal. You see a handful of engineers getting everything ready for the lights to shine brightly into the sky. You will see how they set up the lights for the memorial lighting they put up. Each instrument that is used is about 8,000 watts.

This is a beautiful memorial to illuminate the Twin Towers to remember those who lost their lives that day.
