We thought the world was ending

 
Cara Wilson was in middle school in New Jersey on 11 September, 2001, when the terrorist attacks occurred in nearby New York City. She recalls that her school went on lock down and she and her friends thought that the world was ending, perhaps that aliens had invaded, as they couldn’t conceive of a terrorist attack.
