Students in Classroom with President Bush on 9/11 Reunited 10 Years Later [Video]

By Stephanie Precourt |

President Bush learns about the attack on America at Booker Elementary School on September 11, 2001.

The footage of President Bush in the Booker Elementary School classroom reading a book to Sandra K Daniel’s second grade students is one we will never forget. Where were you on September 11, 2001? It was already known that a plane had hit the first tower of the World Trade Center in New York, but at the time it was attributed to bad weather or pilot error.

As the President sat in front of the class, his Chief of Staff Andrew Card did something you never do-  he interrupted the President, whispering in his ear that a second plane hit the second tower and “America is under attack.”

For about 7 minutes, President Bush remained seated there in front of Mrs. Daniel’s class. He excused himself where he was briefed in the next room, and then he said his apologies to Mrs. Daniel’s letting her know he must leave the school to address the nation. Those 7 year olds in the now famous classroom from that fateful day have grown up these past ten years. GMA captured a fabulous update on those kids, and what they really thought about what happened on September 11, 2001 and George Bush’s reaction. It was surely a moment they all shared and will never forget. GMA video below.
