I was actually sleeping when this happened. I first heard of this when i was at school. All my classes had the televisions on and cued into the news. I was scared because i thought there was going to be another Pearl Harbor bombing because we're in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and we won't have help unless people from the mainland fly over here. I also felt that all the lives that were lost was just sad. Chilren now don't have parents. How will they ever understand about what had happened to their parents. But in a way I was relieved that it wasn't here in Hawaii.

I know that many lives were lost from this attack. But in a way i believe that we have learned things from this attack to prevent this from happening.

The whole day that this was happening, i was glued to the television to see what was happening. I just thought that this would be in history.

During the attack, I was asleep. My family's daily routine starts off by getting ready for school/work...my parents was watching the news and while I was passing by their room, seeing the towers collapse caught my eye! I had gone into their room, CURIOUS about why this was happening! Knowing more about this TRAGIC situation, I felt really sad for the innocent as well as the ones that tried to save lives!

im a 15 year old kid fromsouth lyon and i was just shocked at what happened. im watching this thing on tv and the things im seeing are hurting but i just cant turn it off. i was at scholl when the plane hit and it was ironic but the class i was in was american studies and i dont remember what we were talking about but the way my teacher found out was her husban called and told her what happened and she turned it on and everyone went quiet. it was the craziest thing ever. i remember wanting to do something but i had no money and there was nothing to do but worry and pray. for the first time ever i prayed. i havent gone to church in about 10 years and i prayed. i remember not being abel to go outside for lunch and i thought about calling my mom but there was a line of people waiting to call from payphones and the office. i had a relative that was in the towers and he said that there were bodies and body parts everywere falling ............................ im sorry i just cant write anymore my name is jon lanczak and if your a firefighter cop medic or anything thank you for what you do

The day of the horrible attacks, I was at school. People were talking about it but I thought nothing of it at the time. When the bell rang for 1st period we all went in the gym to get ready for athletics. I walked in and there on the T.V. were the Twin Towers. Now I knew that the situation was seriuos. We all sat down and watched in disgust and horror at the footage.
When the tower collasped I was in absolute shock. I never thought that this great symbol of Freedom, and this great symbol of what America is and stands for would ever collapse. It was like we were all watching a movie, it was so unbelieveable.
When the bell rang for passing period me and my friends started to talk about what had happened. We started to ask who in the world would or could have done this to us? What did we do to anyone to make them so mad that they crash a plane in to the WTC and kill thousands of innocent people?
I am very sorry for all the lives that were taken on that day. No one EVER deserves to have to go through a horrible thing like that. I hope that the terrirists are caught. I hope that this horrible people get what is coming to them. Yeah that is mean but the killed innocent people for no reason.

God Bless America!!

That day we did not dress out and we all sat in front of that T.V and cried and cried.
I am very sorry for all the losses that, that day bought to us. I hope that the terriost are caught and we can end this ugly war.
