These kids were the life of parties, centre of the storm; in short, the most happening bunch of kids in school. It was a big deal to get invited to their parties let alone be invited to join the group.

I was relieved second semester when other kids transferred over into chorus, growing our chorus slightly. At the end of the year, we had learned that the chorus was trying to put a group together to go to Disney World at Christmas to sing in the Candle Light Processional at Epcot, so when it came time for school to start again in August, the room was full of new people. Once again we could divide our guy section into tenor and bass and divide the girls into Alto, Soprano II and Soprano I. After sending in an audition video, our chorus was selection to join the mass choir for two performances and to prepare, we learned 15 songs.

The reason that historians differ on the causes, effects, and who was responsible for “historical events” is because memory is reconstructive and unreliable. Therefore the written history of 9-11 is affected by bias because the writers, children, and adults memories are affected by the schemas of each one’s individual culture. This can change the recollection of 9-11 and other traumatic events. Memories linked to 9-11 differ between different cultures.
My world started collapsing when the disastrous terrorist attack, 9/11, struck fear in my parents' heart. I was only one year old during that time bathed with happiness, my parents would never fight or argue, however, this perfect atmosphere incinerated to ashes on a single day. Sadly, my father's job was affected by the terrorist attack due to them hijacking the planes, which resulted in the temporary termination of airline jobs. Thus, as the stress encapsulated my parents' mentality, quarrels became a part of our daily lives. Looking back from now, our financial situation might have replenished steadily, yet, my life would never be the same again.
As a Pakistani-American Muslim woman, issues of identity, diaspora, and civil rights have dominated my mind since before I could even put a name to those concepts. Growing up in New Jersey after the September 11 attacks meant constantly seeing negative media about Islam, and seeing my increasingly stressed parents deal with discrimination at their workplaces.
