FIRST MAJOR NEWS STORY I REMEMBER LIVING THROUGH AS A CHILD

Inspired by @Peace_Out_List
  1. I was 4 years old on September 11, 2001.
  2. The only thing I remember was getting to leave preschool early, and then going home with my mom and my sister.
  3. When we got home, my mom let my sister and me watch The Princess Diaries in our bedroom, on this small portable tv.
    This was a really big deal because we weren't allowed to watch TV in our room, and we weren't allowed to watch TV on school days.
  4. My mom has filled in the gaps for me, but the only thing I truly remember from 9/11 is getting to watch The Princess Diaries in my bedroom, with my sister.
    It took me years to make the connection of why she let us do that.
