"I have a feeling... This is going to be a great day"

STORY BY: Angela Vella
YEAR: 2001
LOCATION: Montreal, Qc

Angela shared this story: "I was in the hallway of my high school, a Secondary V student, waiting for Homeroom bell to ring, just chit-chatting with my best friend. It was a beautiful September morning. Right at the bell she said, 'I don't know why, Ang, but I feel like it's going to be a great day.' About an hour later, the principal walked in, ashen-faced, and we knew something was wrong. It was 9/11. And I knew two things - this was my JFK moment, and that this day would be a 'great' one, but not in the traditional sense. There was nothing 'great' about the news pouring in, but rather, a great shift just took place. I knew my world had just changed." Thanks for sharing, Angela!
