I was working at the school, in the kitchen when my husband came in and told me what was happening. I was in shock and almost didn't believe it. My first thought was where was my daughter. She works at a major airport and I was so worried that she might be flying somewhere. About 30 minutes later she called and said she was alright but it was the scariest time of my life. I knew we would probably go to war. My son just got out of the Marine Corp. and has 3 years left in the nonactive reserve. I cried for all those people who lost there loved ones. It was so quiet in the class rooms because all the kids were watching the events that were unfolding in disbelief.I think it has brought us all closer and I pray everyday for our leaders to have the ability to bring to justice the ones who did this. I'm so proud to be an American.

I work for the Idaho Humane Society. On the morning of September 11, 2001 I was talking to my boss in her office where she had a radio going. We stopped all conversation when the report of the first plane hitting was reported. We scrambled around and found a couple televisions. Then we heard about the second...then the third. Everyone was devistated. It was so unreal. We are not far from the Boise Airport. We watched planes land after ordered. This was also unreal. I personally didnt lose anyone close to me in these terrible crashes, however, I have friends who did. My brother had a friend lose his life in the Pentagon. For two weeks solid I watched CNN. I cried so much during that time. I prayed this country would survive. Then I watched as this country pulled together and showed patriotism. I watched as flags became impossible to find. I watched public figures cry and talk about God. These are the kinds of things I have heard my parents talk about from years long ago. I believe this country will get back to the faith and patriotism of years past. This war isnt over. But it is a war that must happen. As an American, I am proud of our leaders. As a person, I hurt for those who lost loved ones...and for those who will lose loved ones in the future. September 11th made a huge impact in my life. Never again will I think nothing like this could happen in a great country like America. I will never forget that fateful day. As I'm sure nobody else will either.

I was on my way to school when America was attacked. I couldn't stop thinking "This is gonna be a bad day". Of course, I just thought it was because I had a test or something, but it turned out to be so much worse. Plus the test.
