September 11 2001. I remember that day I was sitting in class when I heard the news. I remember sitting at my desk in total shock, seeing those images on tv was heart breaking. I remember just siting there crying not knowing what might happen next. That day will be remembered till the end of time every american will remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. My heart goes out to all the people who lost a loved on that day, they will always be remember. Now after the attacks we need to trust God even more for he is with us every day. God bless America!!!

I was at my high school in Tahlequah, OK. My first hour class is off the campus so I have to drive to the main high school buildings everyday. As I was going to school I had a local rock station on and they interupted their broadcast music to give news about the attacks. Then they went to the Nation Radio station for the rest of the day. I was kind of shaken because although I live in OK I have seen the towers many times when I would visit family in NY. I along with everyone at my school was scared and anxious since our cable was out and all we had to go on was the radio and about one internet page because the connection was bad. We heard things like " People are jumping from the buildings" and " Run, Run, Run they are collapsing." Imediatly rumors started that we were going to war and gas prices would rise. In my hometown it went from 1.25 to 2.50 in some areas. When I reached my 3rd hour government class our teacher Mrs. Boren had her husband bring us footage of the attack. Later that year my government class went to D.C. on a We the People Competion trip and saw the Pentagon. I was also in Boys State and we talked to many people that were in the attacks. I still cannont believe it happened. It has changed how I look at everything in my life.

Last September 11 I woke up thinking it was a normal day but I knew that my mom would have surgery in a couple of hours. I got dressed and ready for school and was excited what the new day would bring since I had started school days before. I ate my breakfast and my dad told me to go make my parents’ bed. Next to my parents’ bed is a radio, which I always listen to when I am in the room doing something. As I listened to music a news flashed interrupted me. They said that one of the World Trade Centers was on fire. I really didn’t believe it because little fires do happen by accident sometimes. I decided to ignore it and turned on the television to see it was true and was horrified. I ran to my parents to tell them what had happened and they also looked at the image on the screen in shock.
During the whole day all of my teachers had their televisions on watching for updates on the tragedy and what was going to happen next. During the days following the tragedy, many friends of mine thought that they had lost loved ones but weren’t sure. It was very scary and I didn’t know what was going to happen to the nation. I felt like the World was coming to an end.
