Spetember 11,2001 felt like a normal day and it started out as one too. I woke up and got ready for school and went down stairs to eat breakfast. My grandfater always watches the news in the morning but on this morning we were running late so he turned on the TV and i saw the plane crash but i was walking out the door and i didn't think anything of it i didnt even realize that the plan had hit the WTC. So i went on to school like always and 1st hour instead of the channel 1 program that we always watch the news was on and across the bottom of the screen it said plan crashes into Twin Towers. I sat there thinking what kinda of a dumbass hits a building. The the next plane hit and everybody sat there in total shock i think that it was the only time that no body was talking in that English class all year. some of us cried some of us just sat there nobody really new what to think nothing like this had every happened to us before When the third plane hit we really thought that we were goign to war right then and there. Tomorrow is the annerversary and it really doesnt feel like it has been a year but in this year the US has proved how awesome this country really is I LOVE THIS COUNTRY we have came so close and we have so much pride I hope that the world can solve its problems but i will always remember sitting in class watching TV on September 11 2001 and how we walked the halls as zombies and i think that is all we talked about for quit awhile ... The teachers are still assigning papers on it!!

I was in school. It was second period, at 10 am in Brimfield, IL. And the teacher had the TV on and they were showing it. I didn't know what the Trade Centers was or the Pentagon. I was in the 9th grade, a freshman in high school. Someone told me what they were, but I still didn't see how serious it was. And the thing was that in 1st period we were decorating the front of our note taking books, and I wrote on mine "I love (heart) NY!". That was before I knew it even happened. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

On September 11, I went to school just the same as any other day. During my second block, my principle came over the PA and said that something terrible has just happened and to turn on our TVs to CNN. I wasn't thinking when I saw the plane crash into the first tower. I just thought "Oh, this isnt anything too important. It's just an old tape of something" Then, the second plane crashed, and then I realized how serious it really was. I was so scared for eveyone I knew. My cousin is in the Air Force, so I was terrified that he would have to go overseas or that somebody would bomb his base. Now a year later, I'm still really scared that something else will happen. I heard that the American Military bases over in Germany might get bombed tomorrow, and I almost cried. I don't understand why anybody would want to put a whole country through all of this pain and suffering. And I dont see why our President would want to go and do the same exact thing to Iraq. If we go and bomb their country, it'll only make things worse. Tomorrow in school, everone is wearing red, white, and blue in memory of all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

I'd just come home from school and saw my Dad and the window cleaner staring at the the TV. I had to go to tennis immediatley for coahcing but I just sat there shocked for about an hour and then went to tennis, not realising the extent of everything until I returned home later. God bless the families of all those innocent people ad may there be peace to them all resting in the arms of God.

The events that took place on September 11the, 2001 changed America, and its citizens, forever. I remember watching the plane hit and thinking nothing of it and that it was just an accident. But when the second plane hit, the principal came onto the announcements and told us what was the matter. I remember my friend's father had left for New York City that day from Logan Airport. I remember her telling me how afraid she and her family were that he was on the plane that was hijacked, but fortunately he called that evening. When my family came home that day we went to a special service at my church held for the victims of the attack. I heard the news on the radio and the songs they played that were dedicated to the victims. Ever since then I've been afraid when my mother goes to work at Massachusetts General Hospital because we don't know if, where or when the terrorists will strike again. Our country is reminded of this day every day, whether it be on the news or the radio, or a friend or television program. It is an incident that needs remembering. These events did bring American closer together. However, it is unfortunate that it took such an incident to do so.
