I remember on Sept 11, 2001 hearing on the radio about the attacks while waiting for my bus. As it was about 2 stops away the radio took a call from someone who sounded very upset. They said that the WTC was hit by an aitplane. I had no idea what was going on and when I got to school rumors were flying around everywhere, when I got into first period my teacher(who I would consider anti-American) told us that nothing had happened and that we shouldn't talk about it and if we do then we get detention, everyone listened in fear of her rath(that was the longest period of the day for me). I soon went to my second period class and walked into the gym and saw Ney York covered in smoke, it was like a movie, a very bad movie. I was in awe and terror, and confused. I will never forget the first thing I saw on that day not the planes, not the pentagon, but the smoke and the damage caused. I can't imagine loosing a loved one in that, I hate everyone who was apart of this attack on inocent people and I hope that they die a very slow painful death just like they caused over 3000 INOCENT people. To anyone who is suporting the attacks, I would like to see them say that to some of those firemen's faces who lost there best friends, their brothers. I would also like them to know that I hate them more then I hate anything else in the world, and my hate will only grow for them so they better hope that I never become responsible for attacks on them in the name of out country cause I will make sure they get the shit kicked out of them for what they did, just like the army and navy and airforce and our country is doing. Im proud of the way everyone pulls together in a time like this, it makes me feel safe and just good about everyone around me, all us Americans, we have a bond stronger than anyother country or group, including terrorists. Thats why we WILL win this war and avenge the victims and family.

God Bless America, and God help anyone who attacks us

I woke up late and my parents were fighting about something. My dad was the person who took me to school. I didn't know at the time what had happened. My dad dropped me off at the football feild fo marching band. When I got there no one was in formation. Some people were crying. The band teacher told me that the WTC was hit by a plane. I didn't know much about the WTC at the time. It wasn't till later that the terrior hit me.

The morning of September 11 was like any other morning for me. I got up and was getting ready for school. I rarely watch t.v. in the morning so I didn't know what was going on. On the bus they were talking about it, but I paid no attention to it. At school, all I heard about was what had happened in New York. We listened to the radio all day long but I didn't see the actual footage until 6th period that day. When I finally saw the footage I started to cry. I couldn't believe what I saw. I thought to my self "how could ANYONE be so cruel?" I guess I am still naive when it comes to thinking that anyone can be that mean. To this day, over six months ago, I still have yet to grasp the reality that this happened. Looking back at videos of that day today, it all seems like some special effect from a blockbuster hit. I'm not sure what I want to do in my life but, I do know that whoever did this deserves what they get. I know that in my heart justice will be served and we will always be united. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can take away our freedom. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

On September 11 I woke up and it was like any other day to me. But this day I woke up late and I was in a rush to get to school. Every other day I turn on the news and wach what is happening every morning. I was so late that I didnt wach the news and on my way to school I heard the radio say that a plain hit the world train center. I was in shock and when I got to school I found out that a plain hit the pentagon. Durnig seccond hour we were watching the news and we sawl the other plain hit and we sawl the people jumping and it was terrifying to me and everyone. It was all kinda still like a dream to me until the towers started to drop. It is now six months later and we watched the 9/11 documentry and it was so shocking to me. When we started to bomb the Afganastans I was a little happier but I was still sad that our nation lost so many people that day. I thank god that the fierfighterd didnt hyave any fear and they got so many people out of their. I am just so thatnkful that god gave them the streinght. GOD BLESS AMERICA

september 11,2002 I was getting ready to go to school it was like any other day, I was tired. when I got to school the anousments went on and they said that the world trade center had been hit, I was confused because I didn't know what the world trade center was, I didn't know how important it was. After weeks past I started to understand what was going on, I felt realy bad for all the families and everyone that was affected by that day.
