I found out in the last class of school no one had told me. I had heard people talking about some planes hitting some building but I thought they were talking about a movie or something. When I found out I cryed for the rst of the day and while I walked home. When I got home, that night my family cryed and prayed together for the victims and their familys. I think though all this my faith in God has only gotton stronger and has made my family closer together. I still pray to the victims familys. God Bless America.

On September 11th last year, I was sitting in Hermitage High School and from my geometry and history class we watched the coverage on the TV in the class room. I remember hugging my best friend and crying because I was so afraid. I knew people who had families that worked in the Trade Centers and in the Pentagon and my heart went out to those who felt more fear than I did about what they would find out later in the day.

I was at School waching a play it was very funny, when I went to lunch with my friend Kathy and Carolina, the lunch lady told me the the norht tower was gone that two planes crush in to the Twin towers.
I said to her that was only a dream i had but when i saw all the trafic and all the people calling, i realize that it was true that i wasn't only a dream it was real that the things that happen in a movie are able to happen in real life.

On the morning of September 11th, 2001 I was ready to go to what was my 4th day of high school in Princeton, NJ. I can remember thinking what a beautiful day it was, there was not a cloud in the sky. The day continued as usual as I oriented myself with a new school.
I was in band class with Dr. Biancosino when the planes hit the towers. Of course, at the time I was much more concerned about not embarassing myself with my less than amazing trumpet skills, than the terror that was unfolding in lower Manhattan. I would not hear about the attacks until my next period, Geometry with Mr. Manzer.
Class was going as usual when my teacher was called out of the classroom. When he returned he announced that two planes had collided with the World Trade Center towers, this was all we knew. The class became frantic as we began to analyze the situation.
Computers was next. The vast world of the internet was now at my fingertips.
It was then that what had really happened became apparent. I now knew about the attack on the Pentagon and the plane crash in Pennsylvania. I also knew that the towers which I had known for my whole life were destroyed. I then realized that I had a friend who attended school at Stuyvesant High, blocks away from ground zero. Fear set in.
In history class we began to get more information which I now know to be false. We were told that in addition to what had actually happened, a car bomb exploded outside the State Department, the National Mall was on fire, there was an explosion on Capitol Hill, and there were four more planes still in the air. This was one of the scariest moments of my life. As time went on, things calmed down.
Having lived in Brooklyn, NY for 7 years I felt a real connection to New York and those towers. I will never forger what happened that day, September 11th, 2001.
