I was In school on the morning of September 11, 2001. I was sitting in the library, looking up info for a report and just happened to get up and go look at the TV, for no particular reason. When I got a good look at the television, what I saw shook me. I saw flames and smoke billowing out of the first WTC tower. I ran out into the main library section and told everyone what had happened. Apparently I was one of the very first in our school to see what happened. When I said that, everyone gathered around the television to watch what would prove to be one of the most important events in our country's history unfold before our eyes. Afterwards, when we were sitting in our next class, all the teachers had turned the classroom television sets on. Class wasn't being taught, and we were all just staring at the TV, not beleiving what we were seeing. Then the second plane crashed. We all watched in helpless horror as the second jet streaked across the sky towards its defenseless target. We just stared as it came crashing into the second building. When the buildings came down, we all realized that what we had just seen had really happened and that our lives would never be the same.

I was at school celebrating my birthday when we heard about the WTC on the radio. This deadened the mood in the room. Later, at home, when I saw the replays, I realised how terrible it was.
This I shall never forget

I was sitting at home, watching television, just got home from school. Suddenly, while switching to CNN, I saw something that I simply couldn't believe, there was smoke something very wrong going on at the WTC, so I kept watching and watching the live feeds all throughout the day. I called several friends, who then begun to watch as well. None of us could simply believe what had happened.

I was asleep. My grandmother called me and woke me from a dream I was having about a war. I was dreaming that New York was being bombed and on fire, she woke me to tell me that New York, was indeed, attacked. It broke my heart and scared me. I ran up to her house in time to see the second plane crash into the second building live on TV. I was amazed, frustrated, frightened.

Then the buildings fell. With those buildings, went my heart.
