I am an Australian, so when I first heard that the Trade Centre had been hit by a plane it was late at night on the 12th of September. I had just celebrated my 17th Birthday the day before. It took a time while for the whole situation to sink and I didn't cry about it until the 8th of September this year while watching Australian 60 minutes.

the 1st time i heard anything i was in the boys school common room at lunchtime. i remember walking in and wondering what on earth had happened as there was a deadly silence, something i had never experienced there before. after school i travelled up to birmingham as i was due to attend a meeting on the ryder cup, an event i was due to marshall at. it never took place as understandably the americans refused to fly. i was very disappointed at first and then when the enormity of the event hit me i felt very selfish.i remember the american p.r. lady being very sad and quiet and she seemed distracted for the entire evening. i remember feeling very scared that a massive nuclear war would start.

I was at work, whem my boyfriend at the time rang me, I was confused as we had only spoke an hour before in my lunch hour. He said that he was watching the news at two planes had crashed into two towers in America. I just went on MSNBC's website immediatly. I saw the whole thing unfold. That night it was all over the TV, I was in tears

As a year is approaching since the attack on our beautiful country, I still remember exactly what happened that day. I didn't have to go to school because the sophomores had standardized testing...we didn't have to come in until 10 am. I've always had a love for New York City and have wanted to live there since I was a little girl. The monstrosity of that city has mesmorized me for years. "New Yorkers" have always had their own style. My dad woke me up at around 8 (9 am NY time) to tell me that the World Trade Center had been hit by a plane. I watched on TV, only to my amazment a few minutes later to see another plane crashing into the other tower. I was in shock. What was going on? Why was this happening? How could this happen? Who could do this? I still remember listening to Katie Couric go on and on about the whole thing. She couldn't believe what she was seeing. By that evening, my life, as well as many other lives in this country, had changed. I no longer took advantage of my freedom as an American because as a naive teenager, I realized that someone WAS capable of damaging our country and what it stands for. I don't ever remember being more scared for the well being of complete strangers than I did on this day. I will never forget Sept. 11, 2001. This day made me see that America is amazing. Americans are the envy of the world. And no matter what, we will never tolerate someone messing with our freedom.

i was sitting in my second block class and one of the other teachers in the school said "to turn the tv on cnn the world trade center buildings are being attacked." we watched it happen and the rest of the week all we did was watch cnn to find out what happened. i will never forget that day.
