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.

I just dropped my daughter off at daycare when it all happened. The first plane hit when I was leaving. I was thinking about turning back and going to get her after I find out about why it happened. The very sad part is I used to work at Marsh in St. Louis and they had a office in the World Trade center and most of them didn't make it. I didn't know any of the people, but just to have a little conection makes it hard. My deepest sampathey with all of the families.

I was at my best friends house. We were cleaning her house and just basically goofing off. She had to make a short trip in her car and when she came back in, she said she heard on the radio that they wtc's had just got blown up. I could tell by the look on her face that she wasnt kidding, so we went into the living room and turned on the tv. After that, it was just a lot of tears, anger, worry, and sadness as the news told of what was happening.

I was in my car on my way to school. I heard about the one plane and then the shout from the D.J. about the second. Later on we heard about the pentagon and my heart froze, I had family and friends there and I was horrified about what was going to happen next. Being from Oklahoma, I know how they must have felt in NYC, D.C. and Pennsylvania. I'm glad that my family is still here, but I mourn for those not so lucky. God Bless America and all Americans.
