Well the moning I heard about the attack all I could think about is was my cousin near our in the place. I went into the lab at our school and I saw some of the teacher crying. Then I heard them say "o" my god, I looked at the T.V and I saw people jumping. My teacher told me to go out so I act like I was. Some boy came in and stared to jocking around but the teacher told them it was not the time to play around. And the boy looked at the T.V and so playing.
I will never forget the day that it happen. Most people thank it is a joke but it not. My cousin that live in New York was at home along as he say. He turned on the T.V and saw the man jumping out of the Twin Tower. He call his mom she did answer the phone. So he sat back down and stered it to cry his mom came in the house with white thing on her. Well I althought it not my decision I would have war.

It was September 11, 2001. I was in my math class when this attack had happened and they said that the twin towers had just been hit in New York and I was sad because they don't want us to come to their country and hit their biggest buildings they would be feeling the same way that we would be. That night I was more sad when I saw the news because I didn't know that all that stuff had happend and the penagon all these lives has been taken over. Something like this do they know how many families are sad because their familys has been taken by a bomb attack on September 11, that will be the sadest day of my life sorry for all the families that lost family members why would they kill themselves then kill millions of people for one attack I will never forget this day.

Where I was when the attack on America happened was in my class at Buckingham County Middle School. I was in Coach Gowins P.E. class getting ready to go outside when he started talking about an attack on the U.S. I didn't understand what was going on until I got home and heard it from my mom and dad. When I had finaly found out what had happened I was so mad I would have gone to find Asoma Benloten myself if I could have. I mean so many people lost their lives from what he did that it was unbelieveable. When they find him I hope that they make him suffor as bad as the people in the Twin Towers and Pentagon had suffored.

On September 11, 2001 I was in school when this drastic thing happen. When I heard this I asked myself who did this to our country. When I got home I turned the t.v. on and I watched the news. A couple of weeks later I was looking in my JET magazine and I saw so many people showing the pictures of the love ones they had lost. When I found out who had did this bombing I wish that they were never born. Ever since this highjacking, I have been too afraid to ride a airplane.

I remember. I was in my best friends car getting a lift home from school. I was in year 7 then. I didn't see the event- I am in England. But I remember her Dad turning on the radio and hearing the breaking news. I just stopped talking when I heard 'World Trade Center' and 'Collapsed'. It was all I needed to know to make me cry, apart from that more than 3,000 people were killed. THEN I cried. I couldn't imagine what type of evil person would do that.
The car was silent. I went home and put on the TV. It was on every channel. I switched channels. It was on there.
All I could do for the next few weeks was watch the news. I was amazed at how brave the rescue workers were. I felt like I was there. It didn't seem real before I saw ground zero on the news. Then I felt... empty.
All I say now is it was an awful tragedy. I saw the firefighters on the news. I saw bodies on the news. I want to say thankyou to everyone who helped. you have helped America. You have helped everyone. You helped me, and my best friend, and everyone who I know. Thankyou. God bless.
