i will remember that awful day forever...i remember where i was when i found out, what clothes i was wearing, what the weather was like.
When i found out i was in a state of utter disbelief, and then anger. However, a year on i feel quite different. I wake up and i am grateful for every day, every joke shared by by friends and every moment with my family.
Those people who died on septemebr 11th are the true definitions of heroes.
They deserve our upmost respect and a place in all our hearts, for eternity.

Rest in Peace.

I was in the hallway when someone said that the WTC had been bombed. Later, in algebra class, Mr. Beaushene said he had been watching the news and was going to clear up the rumors. He said that two planes had flown into the Twin Towers in New York, and that both towers had fallen. The next thing he told us was that we were still having the quiz that day. We were all completely shocked and many people wanted to leave or go to the nurse. At the end of the day, Dr. O'Malley came on the intercom and said that we would have school the next day, and everything would go on as usual, except after school activities.

I think anybody who loves their country had the greatest feeling of sorrow, anger and hope. Most of us were not there but we still feel the great pain that will forever hang over September 11th.

i was preparing for a biology exam when my mom said that something happened and i couldn't believe it and i started crying because it all seemed like some surrealist nightmare from the deepest recesses of hell.

I remember very well that I was in my English lesson doing a media project. We were watching three extracts from various films and analysing them – one of these films was ‘On The Town’. It was the beginning of the film, at first looking onto the beautiful Manhattan skyline and then started into a song from the 3 sailors singing ‘New York, New York’. The clip ended at the end of the song and then our teacher turned the video off only to see the BBC Special News Report reporting that, 5 minutes ago, the first plane had struck the World Trade Centre. I didn’t really pay much attention to it and after a little gawping and gasps from the kids in the room the teacher decided to turn it off and got on with the review of the film without much more discussion on the news we had just heard.
It was later when I got back home, watching the news reports in more detail that it hit me how tragic this terrorist attack really was. Although the WTC were not built when the film was made, I was very distressed and puzzled with the co-incidence that we had just seen this fantastic clip of ‘On The Town’ and I’ll never forget how that film made me feel, and still will whenever I see it again.
