On September 11th 2001, I was in the Hospital giving birth to my third child. Samuel, he is the light of my life. It was one of the greatest days of my life, but one of the saddest also, for as I held my new son I realized at that very moment some mother some where would never be able to hold there son ever again. My daughter who was 10 at the time was very confused and did not know how to act around people because she was happy to have her new little brother but sad because so many people died. And a mom some where lost there son that day. My mother in law said to her there is a old saying that goes when a baby cries someone will die, so you know that Samuel has the heart and soul of a thousand hero's. I say he has the heart and soul of AMERICA, they may have knocked us down but like he did that morning we came back kicking and screaming. See the Doctor did not quite make it in the room that morning, he was already all the way out by the time the Dr., nurse, and my Husband made it back in the room. It was just him, and me so you see if one little baby can come in this world kicking and screaming all by himself, imagine what a whole nation can do together. So to all hero's of 9-11 We Thank You, For now my son is 1 years old now and can be proud to be an American, and even though he was born on that tragic day he can say he has the heart and soul of a thousand hero's. Cause we came back kicking and screaming. It also taught me to appreciate every precious moment I have with him and my Family.

Thank you again so very much America !

I was at work, walking by a co-workers office and saw that he was watching a small hand held tv. We were able to get the local news station on the tv in our main conference room. To say that we were shocked, confused and horrified would be an understatement. Never in my wildest imagination would I ever consider anything like this happening. Two of the flights originated here in Boston, I work in the area of our Federal Courthouse, and Armed Forces building and was evacuated along with most of the city. The look of horror and sadness on each and every face I saw that day and the many days to come is something I will never forget. My heart goes out to each and every person directly and indirectly touched by this new kind of evil in our world. Hug you children, share your love, be happy, be safe. As we approach the one-year anniversary on this National Tragedy, please say a prayer for the souls of all those lost that day. I know I will.

I was at the airport in Milan, Italy (I'm italian). The flight was at 15.30, during the firs attack. We remained 'til 22 in the evening, and then our flight to mexico was cancelled.
No images, no tv in the airport, I was shcked when 20 hours later I saw the images on tv; i was in Ny in the summer 2000 and kept on thinkin' that it could not be possible.
I'm so sad for all the victims; i hope that terrorims will be desteyed.
During the afternoon the let us going in the airplane, we remanained inside for 20 minutes the a pilot told us that there was a kind of war in ths sky above ny, flyng was too dangerous....

For all of my days, I will never forget 911. I got a call at work that something was going on in NYC. I turned on a radio shortly after the first tower was struck. Like everyone, I hoped it was an accident, but soon realized it wasn't. I don't think I spoke for the rest of the day. I didn't know whether to cry or yell. As the anniversary nears, I think those same feeling will come back. I can't help but think of the children who lost parents that day. How can we explain to them what has happened to us?? As i watched the events unfold on TV, I felt a sense of guilt that I wasn't there to help. I hope that such events never happen again, but if they do, I WILL JOIN IN THE FIGHT!!! God Bless America
