On the day of September 11th, I was eating breakfast on my bed when all of this bad news came down. It is just so hard to comprehend that I was sitting there enjoying my food without knowing that thousands of innocent civilians were being killed at the World Trade Center. After that, I still did not know about it for I was getting ready for school. It wasnt until I got in my car to drive to school that I realized what has happened. I turned on my favorite morning talk radio (Mark and Brian in the morning), and they had an unusually suttle voice, when they usually are cracking jokes about random things. I immediately knew then that something was wrong. I continued listening and eventually found out what had happened. I was terrified... I had to pull over to listen and try to process what exactly happened. When I got to school, every teacher had their TV on CNN. I didn't know HOW bad it was until I saw the video on the TV. To me this felt very surreal, and confusing... which is probably what everyone else was going through.
I wish I could have been there, to help the innocent... but no, I was sitting down eating my breakfast, not knowing what has happened. After that day I felt terrified to go outside for the next few weeks. Those people that died went to the WTC just like if it was an average day at work. What if that happened to us?? We don't expect anything like that. What if???

I am sorry for all of the families who lost a loved one during this tragic event, I wish I could help more, but I can't, and for that, I am sorry.

Wow... Where was i september 11th, 2002...?
That is one question i've heard alot. I
was sitting in my first hour class, not believing
the people that came into the room , talking of
the attacks. We all blew it off, til the bell
rang and all the students were talking about it
and watching it on tv. It was incredible!

I Heard about Sept. 11th when My Mother woke me up. I was seventeen at the time and it was four o'clock in the afternoon and when I woke up and found out what had happened I swore I would never sleep that late again and I haven't.

When the news came of the horor that occured in New York, I was in history class. My teacher had just finished explaining the aftermath of a nuclear blast hitting Toronto, and we bagan to talk about WW3. A few seconds into the conversation, your student concellour came in, and called my teacher over. In the same way that president Bush was later shown being told the news. We then dirrected our attention to my car, and my class gathered to listen on the radio. When the second period began, I could not stan still. I rushed to a classroom which had a radio, and I listen. By 11 am, I couldn't take it any longer. I went home, a mear 20 min drive, and watched the towers collapse as CNN was showing them. Then, I felt that it wasn't fair that no one at school could se this, so I grabed my small 11 inch tv, which had a much needed antenna, and I went back to school. The reception was poor, and we only got one channel, but all afternoon, classes came into the classroom i had set up the tv to watch. I'll never forget that day. EVER.

Precious lives taken from those that loved

them the most are now gone into a place of

eternal rest and comfort.

Those that took their precious lives will

never live to rememeber what they did to

deserve eternal punishment.

I wrote this the day of the attacks on America. This poem is for all those who lost their lives that day and for our wonderful country. I was in band outside marching when we were told about the attacks, we stopped marching to say a long prayer for the nation.
