I AM IN THE US NAVY AND ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 I WAS AT WORK ON MY SHIP IN VA. WHEN WE ALL FOUND OUT ABOUT THE ATTACKS, MY SHIP WAS SORTIED OUT TO SEA AMONG ALL THE OTHER SHIPS OF THE FLEET. IT WAS A ROUGH FEW WEEKS WHILE WE WERE OUT TO SEA NO TKNOWING WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT. TO SAY THE LEAST, I AM FROM NYC AND I WANTED TO KNOW THAT MY FAMILY WAS OK BUT I COULDN'T KNOW THAT. THERE WAS NO EMAIL, PHONES, NOTHING WHILE WE WERE OUT THERE. IT WAS VERY DISTURBING AND WE WERE ALL ON HIGHEST ALERT FOR OUR NEXT MISSION; WHATEVER THAT MAY HAVE BEEN. WE ARE STILL ON ALERT TO THIS DAY AND WE WILL BE FOR A WHILE. I WANT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO KNOW THAT THE US MILITARY IS READY TO WIN THIS WAR AGAINST OUR ENEMIES.

I was in my warm bed sleeping after another long night of working at Wendy's. I had not heard anything about it until 4:30 that evening. I was in total shock and horror. My two roommates(who are married and are my best friends in the world)were visiting New York. I left work early to try and call them to make sure they were still alive. When I got home at around 9 or so, they had left a message saying that they were ok and were already back here in Richmond. They had arrived at 6:30p.m. For a little while, I was like the rest of the nation, wandering if those I cared for were still alive. My heart goes out to all those who did not make it and to those who lost loved ones. Even now, when I hear an airplane going over, I look up and my heart stops.No one will ever be the same again. Not me, not you reading this or anyone else.

I woke up the exact minute that the first plane hit. I laid in bed for a few minutes and I decided to get in the shower. Twenty minutes after I woke up I was in the bathroom, about to get in the shower, and I turned the radio on. The DJ said to get to a TV as soon as you can, so I quickly walked out of the bathroom and turned it to MSNBC.
September 11th is also my best friend's birthday. I got over to her house and woke her up to suprise her with her birthday presents. I felt really bad to have to tell her what was going on.

I was at work when a bulletin came over my computer from MSNBC that a plane had crashed into the WTC. I thought it was probably a small plane and I thought it was just awful. A little later another bulletin came on about the second plane and then the Pentagon. By then everyone was running around trying to find out just what was happening. I thought "Oh my god, someone is trying to wipe us out"! It was an awful, frightening feeling and and I felt total disbelief that this was happening in our country. When what had happened finally sank in I felt sick and I couldn't figure out what I should do - feeling that I should be doing something. My heart ached for all of us but especially for the victims and their families and friends.
