My Name is Shawn and Im a college student in Jacksonville Florida.
on 9-11-01 I was off from work but was planning to go up there to give them my new hours to work because classes started back up. I woke up about 9:00 and turned the t.v. on to see the coverage of the 2nd plane hit the tower.
I just stood there frozen as they said two highjacked planes were flown into the towers. I continued to watch in horror as The towers smoked. Then as they said the pentagon was attacked I felt affraid for my life as a American. All I could say is "The pentagon was attacked." When I saw the towers fall all I could think is did my Friend Kenny make it out alive?. As the day passed I could not belive that America was attacked and what was going to happen to the country. I was able to call My friend kenny late on 9-11 to find he was hurt but alive. As 9-11-02 Came and went all the emotions came back to me and I still can not understand why this happened and How it could Happen.

I was at school when the first plane hit. I was in science class at school and then they announced in religion that we were going to be let out early. When we got home my mom was crying and hugging me and asking me if I was okay. Then, a year later, I was at the memorial Mass at school and suddenly, I began to feel sad and me and a friend went outside and I broke down crying and sobbing. I was kind of worried after that, but I'm over it now. The night of 9/11/02, I watched a lot of the news and I almost did not get to sleep at all because I was afraid of the terrorists attacking our area. But now, as I said before, I am over it now, but you guys might want to pray for me and for the rest of the country.
God Bless The USA!!!!

I remember the day very well. I was assistant to the general manager at the local paper and was conversing with a colleague of mine when the first call came in. I remember the words like it was yesterday: "Oh my God ... you've got to get to a TV. Someone just flew a plane into the World Trade Center." Moments later, I heard the words: "Oh my God ... Oh No! They just flew a second plane into the World Trade Center."
My general manager, who was at the time a volunteer firefighter, called the office to give us the sad news that we had already heard. We were on deadline for the next day's edition of the paper. What a sad day it was.
I suddenly found myself alone and scared. "This didn't happen," I told myself. But it did.
Between 8:46 a.m., and the time the last tower fell, I felt very alone. I didn't know anyone at the World Trade Center, but I felt incredibly helpless.
My name is Rianna, and on September 11, 2001, I was sitting in my office at the local newspaper. I couldn't believe what was happening.

i woke up at around 8 am..restless...i woke up and stared at my boyfriend at the time sleeping..then i stumbled out into the living room to watch like regis or something stupid so hopefully i would pass back out...but well you know what happened eventually..the most eerie part was when after the first plane hit and they had not known what had caused this destruction yet..and while they were sitting there live, talking about it..all you see in the backround was the other airplane strike...right there..the feeling came over me like i was just stabbed in the heart...so i went and woke up my boyfriend and he wouldn't wake up because he didn't believe me at first but then i just left because i couldn't keep my eyes off the tv..and like 10 min later he went out and was just like..in total awe...so we sat there and watched it together until he went to work..all i did all day was drink and drink and drink and drink...watch tv and drink..the thing that i shouldn't have had done but i didn't know what else to do..i mean..you feel so helpless...staring at this peice of technology like you are there but not being able to reach out and give anyone a hug...it hurt...and today..once again..i woke up at 8 am...and turned on the tv and watched and watched..and cried...and wished i could be there to just give one person a hug
