What is the earliest memory that you have?
A memory that comes to mind is going to Texas for my aunt’s wedding. I remember getting dressed for the wedding in the hotel. I was about 8 or 9 years old and I wore a green velvet dress. I sat in the front row while my mom participated as one of the bride’s maids. The wedding was in the evening and I remember waiting a long time for my aunt to walk down the aisle. I remember the reception set up and everyone having a good time on the dance floor. That was the last time I visited Texas.
Another memory that comes to mind is when 9/11 happened. I remember my teacher stopping class in the 3rd grade saying that a plane had crashed into a building. Pretty much implying like it was an accident. School was dismissed early that day and I was picked up from school and taken home. I remember that day so vividly, my teacher Miss Nevaeh, the classroom, the set up and everything. I do remember the incident being on every single channel. I’m not sure if I understood on my own what was going on but I’m sure my mom explained it to me. When I think about that day as an adult it doesn’t minimize the tragedy one bit. It was such a terrible day.
