Very few people do not remember what they were doing 10 years ago on 9/11. Ponderosa Elementary School Principal Steve Austin was a 6th grade teacher at the time. They had the TV on in his classroom, because he was teaching about the stock market. He says the kids were awe-struck. "I think we all knew it was real. And I think the question was: ' ok are we supposed to be watching this right now?' because this is something that is pretty traumatic, are we supposed to have this on TV? And it was a big discussion amongst all the staff members, should we not be showing this, because it hasn't been filtered." Austin said for a while they thought it was an accident, and after a short time they realized it was history in the making. He says some parents were upset that their kids saw the devastation; but he feels they handled it in a sensitive and appropriate manner, they encouraged the kids to talk about the events with their parents.
