Editor’s Note: At 10 years of age, Caitlin Antigua lost her mother, Lorraine, on September 11, 2001. Lorraine worked on the 109th Floor of the North Tower for Cantor Fitzgerald, the bond brokerage firm that lost 658 employees in the World Trade Center attack. Caitlin was one of the “Wish Kids” featured on The Today Show in 2001, when the show made it possible for her to meet Jennifer Lopez and watch the making of her music video, and again in 2011. (See video below.) On this, the 10-year anniversary of 9/11, the now 20-year-old college student reflects on that tragic day and shares loving memories of her mother. My mom woke me up especially early, at five o’clock, to ask me what I wanted in my sandwich for lunch, as she did every day. She then kissed me on the cheek, told me she loved me and went to off work, as I fell back to sleep.It was a beautiful Tuesday morning. I got to school at about eight o’ clock. It was the first week of the school year. I was in fifth grade and very excited for what lay ahead. It was about nine o’clock when suddenly students started being called down to the office for early dismissal. My whole class was wondering what was going on. My teacher decided to stop our math lesson and gave us a free day. Of course everyone was thrilled. We played games as we waited impatiently to be called down. At 9:30, my name was called. I raced to the front office, excited and curious about what was going on. Once I got there, I saw my neighbor who was in junior high. I asked her what was going on. She told me that two planes had crashed into the Twin Towers. At 10-years-old, I did not know what that was, so I just shrugged it off. Suddenly, she paused and asked, “Wait, where do your parents work?” I told her that they both worked at the World Trade Center. Something in her face changed. I was confused, unsure what to make of her expression. But before I could say anything, she grabbed me and started running. As we rushed to her mother’s car, she told me that the World Trade Center was in the Twin Towers.
