-  Summary: Caroline Lederer awoke to a beautiful day before beginning her new teaching assignment. She recalls coverage of the September 11 attacks on the television, however, she was too preoccupied with her class to take note. Later, when informed of the tragedy, she called her mother who filled in the details. She discusses security, immigration, prejudice, her anger and mental outlook, religion, Osama Bin Laden (who she wants destroyed), the reasons for the attacks, the economy, the meaning of being American, and Ground Zero.
