On September 11, 2001 I thought it was just going to be an ordinary day...I woke up at 7:00 just like any other day..I did the normal routine...When I got to school I had not heard about the attacks yet..We had our Science class and then I remember that my Reading teacher came into the room and told my science teacher about the news..We turned on the t.v. in the classroom..The first thing we saw was the WTC with a big hole in it...I didn't know what was going on...I was clueless..I just figured it was an innocent accident..But I was Way wrong....We started our reading class and about 10 min. later another plane crashed into the other building! Now I knew this was no laughing matter...It was now a war! I was scared to death...I thought of all the kids sitting in their desks in New York...I was thinking to myslef...What if I was in New York...What if I was in one of the WTC..I had a lump in my throat...I felt so lucky to be in a safe enviornment...All day everyone was talking and crying and trying to live their normal lifes..But that was almost impossible, How could you live your normal life if Someone just murderd thousands of innocent Americans?! When I got home that day my mom and dad called me...They said that they were all right and everything was going to be fine...I remember asking them if ther was more to come...They couldn't answer...No one could, for the next couple of days America was silent and millions of tears were shed...I remeber September 11 and I don't think anyone could ever forget!! it is a moment I will carry in my heart forever! God Bless America!

I remember where I was on September 11th 2001......I was sitting in science class, I remeber when I heard that the WTC had been hit by an airplane... I thought it was just an accident, but then another on hit.....Now I knew it was a terrorist attack! I was terrified!!! Even though I live many states away it felt like this was happening in my own town!!! Some of my classmates were in tears, some were filled with fear and others like me were just plain shocked! I remeber those who died everyday and I'll never foget this tragic event....May God Bless all who have have suffered this tragity

On the day of September 11, 2001 I was at home. I woke up early in the morning to get ready for school. When I turned on the radio I heard the news about the airplanes hitting the towers but I didn’t pay much attention to it because I thought it wasn’t really too important. But when I turned the TV on I saw how serious it was. I went out to the kitchen and my parents were just sitting there watching the TV. Later I found out my dad was supposed to fly out the night before to go to work there over at the twin towers. But he cancelled his flight. I was glad that he decided not to go anymore. I was sort of freaked out about that but happy too. It just felt weird knowing that he could have been there and I started thinking about what it would be like if he was there. Today one year later I still think about what could have happened to him. So now I pray everyday for those people who lost their lives and for all those who lost loved ones for them to stay strong and believe in their faith. God Bless

At 7:00am I was awakened by the sound of explosions. I opened my tightly shut eyes to see the light of my TV with the words “Terror on America” flashing across the screen. With just a squint I made out the world trade center and amazingly, a cloud of smoke billowing from the building. “What’s going on?!” I exclaimed at my mom. With a few brief words, I come to find out that it was hit with a plane. I was astonished to find out, just a few minutes later, that another plane had hit the second building. It’s easy to recognize sabotage when you see it! In the other room, I hear a slight weeping of grief and anger. I finally heard my mom say, God have mercy on your souls!
