I was in my first hour class and my teacher ran in there and turn on the T.V. and said some thing bad has happened at first I was like what is this. Whats wrong with her. Then I heard it The world Trade Center has been hit by a plane my heart fall to the ground. I could not believe that some one hyjacked a plane and hit the wtc and the pentyon(I'm not a good speller sorry) I started to cry b/c I was just thinking of all the lives that was lost that day. It just broke my heart to hear that some one would be that cold heart to hurt inccoent people like that. well I have one thing to say! America is Strong and we can and we will get though this no one can ever take our freedom away and no one can ever take our pride and no one can take the meaning of the flag away from us. The ones who did this to us has to stand in front of God one day and they will get what they deserve.
God Bless America

I was in my classroom trying to show another teacher how to use GradeSpeed. The radio was playing in the background when we heard about a plane crashing into the first tower. Later we started hearing that we were being attacked. Anxious to learn more about what was going on, I ran home and turned on my TV. A few minutes later I saw as the second plane hit the second tower. Terrified I ran back to school and reported the events. Everyone was in tears and we began to pray. What followed is history. I will never forget this day.

I remember,
how the air smelled in the early morning,
the color of the sunrise, the clear sky, the feel of the perfect temperature of the air.
A tiny breeze whispered through my hair as I opened the door and walked into my office.
I remember how the coffee smelled, and the sound of the song birds I could hear outside the window that I opened. The clothes I wore that day are still folded neatly in a corner of my closet. Untouched. Like the picture left here in my mind.
I remember what was on the television before it was interrupted by the live news broadcast,
I remember the pain in my heart that brought me to my knees as I watched in shock.
I remember screaming to the people on the television screen to run.
I remember waiting for all those people to come back.
I remember all the tears.
I waited. I cried for weeks.
Sleepless nights. Nightmares.
Months of grief.
I don't remember,
how long it was
before I could allow
myself to enjoy
a beautiful day
again.
But,
I remember,
September 11,
2001.

I live in Waco, Texas and was working at TSTC (had been there exactly a week) at the time of September 11, 2001, across the street from the airport where President Bush lands when visiting Texas. I got to work at 7:50 a.m. and did what was becoming my routine - turn on my computer, get things lined up on my desk for the day and start answering phones.

As I was doing this, people were asking me if I'd heard what was going on. Someone set up a T.V. in the lobby and everyone gathered around it to watch for any bit of news. I watched in horror as the second tower got hit, then as each fell.

I could NOT believe this was happening. I cried and prayed. To think that someone could be filled with so much hatred towards another country because of religion was, and still is, unfathomable to me.

I realize now more than ever how important my family is to me. I recently remarried and between the two of us, we have 5 children. Most things are normal in our home, but I try not to waste an opportunity to hug my children, give them an impromptu kiss, tell them "I love you", or any of dozens of ways to express how I feel. No one knows how long we have on this planet and I want to try to make every moment count.

I also want my children to know that God was there with all those people who died that day and in the days to come, and those who were left behind. That God doesn't require anyone to kill others in His name to prove their loyalty. He sometimes does things we don't understand or like, but the whys aren't always for us to know until we're face-to-face with him. May God bless each and every one of you.

i was still at home the morning of sept.11,2001. i was about to walk out the door on my way to school when i looked up at the tv and saw the first wtc tower smoking. and few seconds later i watched as the second plane crashed into the second tower. i remember the screams of the people and the reaction of the news anchors.it was so surreal,and not realizing the tragedy that had just occured i turned and walked out the back door. then in class someone on the P.A. system came on and announced that the pentagon had just been hit. teacher's were crying and so were the student's. i just remember thinking to myself, what else are they going to hit? when is it going to stop?
