I was at school in 2nd hour. I don't even remember how we got word of it. My teacher had this little black and white T.V. My entire class was surrounded around it. At first I didn't understand. It seemed like something out of a movie,but it still didn't hit me yet. It didn't hit me until 3rd hour when we didnt have to do any work, and my teacher was tryin to get on the internet and evey server was busy. We didnt have a T.V. in there so we only heard what the other teachers were saying. After that day i was real scared. I heard rumors saying that Louisiana was the next one they were going to hit (which is where I live). I didn't even want to go to school the next day, but I did. First hour, when the announcements were supposed to come on, we just had a moment of silence. Everyone was so upset!
Doesn't even seem like it's been a whole year. I think it made America think about a lot of things, and made them realize just how much they take forgranted. I don't think having another war would be the solution, but I'm sure our president is doing everything he can, the best way he can!

I was sitting in American History class. One of the teachers from down the hall came to our door and told us to turn on the television. When I saw the second plane crash into the tower, I remember thinking, "Is this a video game or something?" Pretty soon after that, our principal announced a moment of silence and then told us to just continue on our day and regularly scheduled classes. I don't know if I agree with that; I think we could probably have postponed talking about the Civil War for a day to talk about some "American History in the making" or what have you...For the rest of the day, everyone was really nervous, because we heard that the president had gone to Barksdale, which is about an hour from our town. I remember being really afraid about going to war and not being sure about what had happened and what was going to happen. It was just a really scary, sad day, to say the least.
