I was on my way home from work when i heard the terrible news. I drive a school bus for elementary children and had finished my morning run and on the way home i hear this horrible news. Well all the little children where scared when i got back to the school. But i remember one child saying my daddy will protect us all he is in the military and he flies a bomber. This child was in kindergarden and she thinks her daddy can protect the world this is the same way i grew up and felt but you feel as you are not protected and dont know how to protect yourself.

I was in 2nd period B-day Life skills class. And it was about 10:00, and the teachers were running down the hall telling each other to turn it to channel 9 qucikly. My teacher turned it and just as she turned it i saw a jumbo jet headed straight for tower # 2. Teachers and students were crying, mourning. I had never even heard of the World Trade Centers until that horrific day.

Sept. 11th, 2001...what can you say? It's all emotions. Tears, heartache, feeling for the families that have lost their sons, daughters, mothers and fathers...etc. On that day, I was in the daycare that I work at, I remember that we had a radio on and when it came across...we just froze. Turned on a tv..and watched as the Towers fell. I felt the tears well up and wasn't ashamed that I was crying for people that I didn't even know. The idea that someone could be so cruel and malicious was beyond me. I still can't understand how someone could have enough hatred to destroy the lives of these poor souls and that of their families. Being a mother of 3, all that I could think about was those poor children and mothers...My heart goes out to the families and remember America...Old Glory....HER COLORS NEVER RUN!!!!

My patriatism has changed so much since September 11th. I have found out that people can come together as a nation and help each other which makes me proud to be an American. I remember i was in school. I am a high school senior on the verge of graduating and i remember that i came out of 2nd period and went to 3rd period which is ROTC. My SNSI had the radio on and they were talking about the pentagon so i wasnt really concerned and then they turned on the tv at 9:30 and i could not believe my eyes at what i saw. it was the most horrifying thing i have every seen in my life. to see that someone would want to possible do something like that. I was absolutely terrified. I really didnt what i was thinking as i was watching. All i could say was "Oh my God..." I kept thinking about my mother and my family. Expecially my Aunt who works in NYC. I was so scared for her. After 7 months it all seems like a fresh cut to me. It hurts so bad to know that something like this could happen. To know that everything that we stand for has been tried and tested. I am deeply sadened by what has happened. After September 11th, I tried to do what i could to help out. I tried to give blood. I donated alot of stuff to Goodwill. And i also sold red, white, and blue ribbons in my school to go to WTC relief fund. I would like to think that i did my part in helping out. I just hope that our great nation will overcome this enemy of terrorism and let freedom prevale.
