I was in my 7:00 am electronics lab at BYU. I was in the middle of working on my lab when I heard people start talking about what was going on in NY. I couldn't believe what was going on. Everything seemed to stop. The TV was turned on and everyone stopped what they were doing to watch. Suddenly working on my lab didn't seem so important. I eventually did finish my lab and went straight home. I wasn't affected directly by the loss of anyone close but as an american citizen, it hurt deep. I still can't believe it.

It has been almost one year to the day,a day that live in the hearts and minds of all americans for the rest of their lives. I remember hearing my friend in the room next to mine talking to someone on the phone, he sounded like he was crying,very upset.So i got up and went in to his room just in time to see the second plane hit the second tower.I had just got up from sleeping still not quite awake.And then seeing this i really wondered if this was real or i was still a sleep and was having a terrible nightmare.I could not take in what i was seeing people jumping to their death from 100 stories up, and buildings crumbling down A plane had hit the pentagon, one had crashed in western Penn. What had happened to the world i knew the night before that terrible mourning.After one year i still can remember that day and i will for the rest of my life.GOD BLESS AMERICA.

September 11-2001 A day that will always be remembered. A day of horror, pain, shock, and fear. Yet still, those are not the only emotions that went through minds of Americans everywhere. At a time of distress and grief we felt honor, and witnessed heroism. We should be proud of the leadership skills that were shown. Damage was done, but we pulled through and as a nation we united.

i was getting ready for school when my mom came into my bedroom and told me to turn on the Today Show. i turned it on and just as i did the second trade center got hit with another plane! shocked to say the least i just sat there doing nothing transfixed to the tv, praying that it was just a fluc but it wasnt. apalled at the thought that someone hated the United States of America that much to decide to hijack 4 planes and run them into The Trade Centers, the Petagon, and into penselvaina.
my brothers were in The Trade Centers when it happend. one servived the other one didnt. the thing to always remember is the good times that u had with a loved one that died in the trade centers or the pentagon or penselvainia. even if u didnt have a famliy member or a friend die in one of thoughs places pray for the people who did. we cant let this get to us! we must fight for justice! the people who did this r sick and demented, and they can not walk away from this. we MUST catch them! plz never forget the Trade Centers and the lives of the people who died that day!
