I was shocked by what I saw and could not believe it, but I do not think I quite comprehended the impact of this event. I headed to class and took a seat in the large lecture hall. I could hear other students talking about the news of the attacks. The professor entered the lecture hall and the first thing she did was to address the news of the attacks.
