[From StoryCorps' 9/11 Animated Shorts Series, She Was the One]
"Hello?" I said with my eyes still closed.
"Are you up?" It was my sister.
"No, we're both sick, we were sleeping. Why are you calling so early? What's wrong?"
"Go find a common room with a TV. Is there one on your floor? Go watch the TV."
With my sister still on the phone, I shuffled out of bed and to our dorm's common room, where I found a group of people already glued to watching the news. The rest is a little foggy to me.
She Was the One brought tears to my eyes and makes me want to hold onto the boy and never let go.
