My Name is Rebecca. On September 11, 2001, I was at Washington School doing some work for my teacher. Then at 9:00 in the morning we went to the library. When the Twin Towers got hit we didn’t know. We knew something happened when everyone was going home from school with their moms and dads. At that time we were sad and wanted to know what happened and why everyone was going home from school with a parent.

When we left school we found out what happened and why everyone was going home with someone. At first I didn’t really get why everyone was crying and why it was all over the news. My sister told me that it means a lot to New York and everyone in the United Stated and around the world. Then I got a little sad about it all.

I think what they did is something most people will never forget. Some people that lost there loved ones will never ever forgive the people that did this horrible thing. I think what they did was mean and rude. I think most people want pay back on these people that were part of this.

Note the following comments:
The first time I heard about 9/11 I was in school. I found out about 9/11 because my fifth grade teacher brought us to a room and told us. When I found out I thought they were kidding around. After awhile they let us see the news. On the news I saw the North tower being hit by the hijacked airplane then the South tower was hit. Then after an hour went by the two buildings collapsed. This is what I found out about 9/11.

Where was I when the first plane hit? I was on my way to school with my brother. My class and I were wondering if this was true. Then we went to my Math teachers class for math. She was putting her ear to the radio speaker. We were like what are you doing? She then told us what happened. Even though I already knew. Now that i am in the 5th grade there is a kid who is from The Broncs. He said his school had to evacuate and his friend left his school with a broken arm from pieces of the WTC building. He said some of the kids were killed. Can you imagine kids being killed by pieces of building? Any way He said his uncle taped some of it but the tape recorder broke. And I wnat to say to the reletives of some of the victims. Me and my family will pray for your family if you will pray for my mom's friends sister. Her name is Pam Kinamore. She was the one ubducted from her house. Please pray and God Bless America!

I was at school. The teachers kept it a secret until the next day. My mom was very concerned and I feel very sorry for the people that were injured.
