Oh wow a 9/11 picture.... how serious D:
Anyways here's the story:
I was only 5 years old when it happened but I remember it clearly. First grade just started for me and I was getting ready to go to school in the morning. I was eating breakfast when my dad turned on the tv and started watching the news. I saw the footage of the towers burning and collapsing to the ground. My dad was staring at the tv saying "Oh no... no no no..." I didn't understand the importance of it. I knew something bad happened but I thought it looked like a scene out of a movie. I went to school and everyone was saying "Did you hear the news? Did you hear what happened?" We had an emergency assembly and listened as the teachers discussed the tragedy that had occurred that morning. Still, I could not understand what was so important. Being a little kid in Hawaii, everything seemed so far away and distant. I had never even heard about the Twin Towers and I didn't even know where New York was. Everyone was just freaking out about something that had happened far away while we were all asleep.
Now that I've grown up some, I cry when I watch the videos captured that day. I feel for all the people that were affected by what happened. So that's why I drew this picture. I think it seems like something America would be doing every year. Visiting Ground Zero and just laying out flowers along with everyone else's cards and gifts for all the people lost that day.
I think this is the most emotional drawing I've ever done. I hope you like it.
