to america_to my american woman_to my new friends
My name is Miguel Edgardo Riveros Silva and I was born in Chile during a time of terror.My life was in danger and Americans saved my life.
The terrorists say that they fight for God but they are only sinners and criminals. They are cowards.
The pain of America is my pain. I send all my love and hope to America and to all americans.
I am so sorry and I wish I could do more to help.
My love, my woman is american and I adore her. I will protect her with my life
and with all my strength.

God bless America

On September 11th I was in Germany for I am german and I always lived here. But I never felt at home here, my heart always belonged and always will belong to the USA. And soon I will move there.
September 11th was my first day at school in the new school year. I remeber waking up and thinkin "Oh now summer vacation is over, gotta go to school again". I thought it would be a normal day.
When I got home I started doing some stuff for school, not switching on a TV or radio. That was when the first plane hit. My mom came home from shopping, she's had the radion in the car switched on. She ran into the living room where I was at and said with a calm voice "Honey, u wont believe. Switch on the TV there was such a bad accident at the WTC in New York. An airplane did hit the building". I was like "Yeah mom! Stop joking that's not funny." She was like "I'm serious". So I switched on the TV. I didnt have to find the right chanel for it was on on every TV program. I still thought it was an accident. What then followed and changend my life forever I will never forget. I remember watching that live broadcasting, I remeber looking at the Tower in flames. I remember recognizing a small black point behind it, getting bigger. I realized it was another plane just seconds befor it hit.
That was when my world sopped turning.
I felt like my heart stopped beating.
Same time I felt tears running down my face. I heard myself saying "oh my God, oh my God" over and over again. I dont know how long I said there watching, couldnt manage to get my eyes off the screen.
I saw people jumping out of windows, I saw a young couple holding hands and kissing b4 they jumped into certain death. I saw people running down streets, screaming, crying.
I remember my dad coming home from work looking at the screen. I remember seeing my dad cry - for the first time in my life.

Now, almost one year later, there are still nights when I wake up, crying, screaming. I still cant get those pictures out of my mind. I still think about children without mom's and dad's. About so many people who lost their loved once...

I still go to curch, lightening candles, praying for everyone who died and who lost someone.

My fiancee is American he is stationed here in Germany. He is in the US Army and I still pray they wont take him down to Afgahinstan or somewhere else.
I admire everyone who is fighting down there for the States and for freedom though.
The cousin of my fiancee was the fist firefigher body they found that day.
I still cant take it.
Neither can I.

I will never forget that day.
And I hope someday we will live in a world where that will not happen again, for people finally starting to love each other no matter what religion, skin color or country they belong too.

God bless the USA.

Iīve been at work when one of my colleagues told me a plane had crashed into the WTC. We all thought it had been an accident until we heard in the news another plane had crashed in the WTC and in the pentagon. At this time, it was clear it was a terrorist act against the U.S. Since we donīt have a TV at work, we tried to reach the CNN home page, but we couldnīt get through. Iīve been very concerned about my sister this time who lives near Washington, D.C. I tried to call her all day, but the phone lines didnīt work until later this evening when she finally could get through to me to tell me she and her husband were all right.
